Will their Majesties be staying for dinner?

Mar 08 2011

Hello

How are you guys? There is so much going on it’s hard to keep up. For example right now I am boiling the kettle and brushing my teeth and half typing this….That was silly. I can’t type and brush my teeth.

Yesterday SPIN premiered the new single from our new album WALLS. It’s called Dressed Sharply. Go here to have a listen. We hope you like it. We sure like it. Also if you are one of the amazing people who have pre-ordered the album you will receive the song in your inbox.

We are playing a very special WALLS Album Launch show on our release date of April 26 in Brooklyn, NY at the Knitting Factory with special guest Nik Freitas. It’s All Ages and tickets are on sale now HERE > The entire Album Launch show will also be streaming live on the web via Livestream. Celebrate with us and watch the show wherever you are in the world! RSVP HERE >

In other exciting news, we are doing a run of dates with a band we really love, Manchester Orchestra. These shows will be great. Manchester Orchestra have a new record coming out and their new single is killer. We will have our record out by the time we do these shows and we hope you think that is killer too. Check out the dates and get in quick. I think the shows are selling fast!..

Thanks for responding to us on Facebook regarding this blog! Your questions are awesome and funny. First of all, if you ask us if we are coming to your town, we can’t confirm or deny if we are BUT please know, we are doing are best to get everywhere. The world is very large and we are quite small so it does take time. We will do out best.

In short form (please refer to Facebook q’s and in no particular order): Yes, I like cheese; No I have never kept a kangaroo or koala as a pet. My friend had a pet kangaroo growing up and it often puncture her parents water bed (it was the 80′s) with its claws; As for an afternoon snack, anything that involves Jatz and Vegemite or say BBQ shapes or simply chocolate; WALLS is just overall way better than Rearrange Beds; Right now I am reading lots of Raymond Carver, but he is a bit of a bummer to read; I loved The King’s Speech. Geoffry Rush should have won the oscar. OH and Animal Kingdom!!! If you haven’t seen that go and get it out!!!!!!!!! Amazing and brutal insight into an awful Australian family.  Jacki Weaver SHOULD HAVE WON BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS. Damon told me he loved Blue Valentine. I didn’t want to see it because I thought it would bum me out but I loved it; Top 5 albums of all time is just too hard to answer; I have never really watched any reality tv and I don’t plan to start; I have ridden a horse many times. I can’t say I am really into it but I know a lot of people who are; It’s hard to choose a favourite track from Thriller but please know I did sit here and think about it!

I have to get back to band practice! See you soon.
