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
