8 Bit video for Big News!! // more Summer dates! // Boise show announced!

Been an incredible Summer so far! Amazing time in California in early July, and now on a series of regional festivals. The UMS last weekend in Denver was awesome once again. And very thankful for all the great bands we’ve been playing with as of late. Most of the rest of our Summer shows are in Idaho and Wyoming, but there will be some more NW dates announced soon for the Fall. However, most of the Fall will be dedicated to writing and recording a new album. Full remaining Summer dates below.

Our buddy Joseph Von Stengel out in NY sent us this incredible 8 bit animation for Big News off of our recent Benchwarmers EP. Surprised us with it last week. We were floored. Very excited to share it with y’all. Welcome to Finn Riggins the video game

Benchwarmers EP + NW Tour // limited edition Record Store Day 10″ vinyl

Been hard at work in the deep caves of Finn Riggins-landia… in the wake of the amazing Treefort Music Fest here in Boise and a great SXSW tour, we’re back in action with a brand new EP being released by Tender Loving Empire that we’re very excited to share with y’all. Its called BENCHWARMERS and features new songs Plural, Big News, Arrow as well as Parkour that you may have heard and the title track, which if you haven’t heard, is available for FREE MP3 download to the right. The EP will be available on CD and as a digital download, but we’re most excited about the limited edition 10″ red vinyl that we pressed it on — they arrived a few days ago and look gorgeous. Officially out this weekend for Record Store Day.

We’re celebrating this Friday here in Boise with a collaborative Record Store Day Kickoff / Finn Riggins EP Release party presented by The Record Exchange and Go Listen Boise. Its an ALL AGES show at The Linen Building and also features the incredible Pontiak (Virginia) fresh off a European tour and the release of their new album “Echo Ono” on Thrill Jockey Records and locals Red Hands Black Feet.

We have a small run of very special shows in the NW that we’re playing in the next couple of weeks. More dates further away from home to be announced very soon. In the meantime, hope to see those of you that live in these areas!
