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

10/10 portland release party for vs wilderness

fun night, although a little quiet, in Pendleton last night. we were competing with Mud Wars. an annual event held in conjuction with Homecoming in which high school girls have a big tug-o-war in the muddy rodeo grounds. pretty tough to compete with high school girls in mud…. but we’re thankful to the enthusiastic crew that did come out to the show! loved the opener, DAY MOANSTAR with his neon green suit and dancy tunes. and the Pendleton Center for the Arts was a cool place ran by cool people. thanks to Peter Walters for the show and the tour of the old jazz club!

headed to McCall tonight, then the big Boise release party tomorrow night… on Saturday, we celebrate in Portland at Berbati’s Pan with three of our most favorite artists in the US much less in Portland. if you haven’t already, check out JARED MEES & THE GROWN CHILDREN and WORLDS GREATEST GHOSTS and TYPHOON. this will be a killer show!!

and the icing on the cake is that our friend and past collaborator JOSEPH VON STENGEL is flying out from New York to do his digital mash-up projections during our set! very excited to see what he has in store for us all.

Saturday night. October 10th. Berbati’s Pan. Portland, OR. don’t miss it!
