tour with Built To Spill begins!

cruising through Kansas, launched last night from Boise with a mission of getting to Spindale, NC by Friday morning for a radio session with infamous WNCW 88.7 FM… then we attend the wedding of a Simpson niece near Raleigh, NC on Saturday and then jump on tour with fellow Idahoans BUILT TO SPILL and FAUXBOIS in Asheville, NC on Sunday. when we left we had 2400 miles and 36hrs to go, after an epic moonrise over Wyoming, a brief nap with a herd of deer and a greasy breakfast in Laramie, we rolled through Colorado and now in deep cruise control across Kansas with a measly 1312miles and 21hrs left to go. this is a cakewalk.

summer’s been good to us thus far. thanks to everyone that have been making it out to the shows. below are our current tour dates, including a couple of changes with our late august dates from our original posting. we’ll see you soon. new tunes are churning inside of us. this fall and winter we’ll be hibernating to churn them outside of us.
