It’s hump day folks, so lets take a look back in time to this freshly released early recording of The Clams and I, filmed December of last year in beautiful Bonita Springs, FL at the Sugar Shack Sessions:
Feels like forever ago! Also, have you seen our latest music video for Animal? If not, hear ya go, and if so, show a friend or two!:
Happy hump day folks!
Have you streamed our newest music video for Animal yet? If not, take a minute to check out the video above and share it with a few friends! The track’s audio was engineered and produced by Craig Schumacher, a Tucson local, and tonight we’ll be holding a release party at the Hotel Congress (in Tucson) to honor this wonderful video’s release in the flesh!
Local Tucson bands Two Door Hatchback and Sweet Ghosts will kick off the show at 9pm and 10pm respectively, and then we’ll close out the night with a big one starting at 11pm. Show is free to all. Come get down and celebrate this wildness!
Our newest music video for Animal is now live and rolling! Check it out!
This is our 9th official music video, from our 9th, just-released studio album “Important Things Humans Should Know”. The introduction to the video was hand-animated by Noah on the road during the first 2 months of our Important Things Tour (April & May 2015). The video and recording also features a handmade, fully-functional shotgun guitar (which Noah built himself). It is the only one known to exist in the world and took a year to make.
The video was filmed by Noah and up-and-coming New Orleans-based photographer Joshua Bradsted (whose work has been featured in Rolling Stone, The NY Times, Paste, and many more).
Hope yall enjoy! And thanks again to Mxdwn for hosting the premiere! Much love, and please share it everywhere!
Three truly amazing things ladies and gentlemen:
1) We’re playing in Athens, GA tonight at the Foundry as part of our Important Things Humans Should Know CD release tour. Grab your tickets here. Show starts at 8pm – we’re playing 2 sets.
2) We have a new 6th member! Adam Lessnau will be joining us as a guest trombonist though the remainder of our Important Things Humans Should Know tour. The brass is booming big now baby. Come dig his chops tonight at the Foundry, or one of our other many tour dates on the left sidebar.
3) Noah’s 10 year beard is getting out of control. He’s only 9 months in, and it already covers bowties and has a tiny refrigerator cabinet were he keeps a conservative assortment of 8 oz sodas. Somebody make it stop…
The album is called “Important Things Humans Should Know”. Here is a picture of its cover:
Here is a exclusive stream of the opening track “Ezmerelda”, courtesy of our good friends over at 9Bullets.net:
You can pre-order the album on our BANDCAMP:
Here is the tracklisting:
The album will be released worldwide on April 7th, 2015 via our website, iTunes, Bandcamp, Spotify, Amazon, blah blah blah, and all those other hunky dory little download & stream sites. Additionally, we’ll be having a hometown release party on April 4th at DBA on Frenchmen if you want to come grab a physical copy early.
Can’t make it to New Orleans?
Don’t you worry, we’ll be doing a 4 month national tour to follow. We just posted 16 new dates on our sidebar, with many more pouring in everyday! Don’t see your city there yet? Don’t worry, we’re coming for ya!… Also, on or before the album’s release, our wonderful Kickstarter donors should be receiving their sweet gift packages in the mail. Again, so so so much thanks to everyone who made this project possible – we wouldn’t have been able to make it this dope without you.
So, did you get what you were looking for? Because if not, here’s a little icing to top it all off – a live rendition of “Ezmerelda” we just finished with our friends over at the Sugar Shack Sessions:
