Thank You

Hey folks! We had a fantastic, eye-opening time on our Southern Dreams tour - 11 shows, over 3,200 miles, and a much-needed reminder of how many amazing folks there are making brave art and doing awesome organizing (and we know we barely scraped the surface!).

Simply put, we love touring down south. thank you for giving us beds and food. setting up shows for us with amazing bands. telling us about the awesome bridges to hang out on and the waterfalls to see. and thanks for great conversations and connections and reminding us of all the amazing ways music and community can authentically intersect. all the sides.

Wanted to share a couple of things. First off, a lot of folks asked us about our bandcamp on this trip. Up until now, we’d only had a song from each of our records, but in order to make sure that people can access our music in as many ways as possible, we’ve updated it! Now all the songs on our albums are on bandcamp, so come visit our page HERE.

Secondly, Diane mentioned a book at a number of the shows, and we thought y’all might want to check it out. Here’s the book FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN by Terry Bisson and here’s to alternate histories that can give us hope (which to many is a dangerous thing...this book was long unavailable in the US). The intro to this new edition is written by Mumia Abu Jamal.

Also, this is the blog post in full on Steubenville and rape culture that Katy shared at the Nashville show.

We went into WXPN’s studio last Tuesday night to record a live taping, and it is airing tonight! Also, we’re going to be playing with Pissed Jeans and Purling Hiss here in Philly at Union Transfer on Saturday, February 8th. yeah!

And finally, we’ll be working to finish up our third album, out later this spring. And we’ll have updates for y’all soon about some shows to report down the road. Stay tuned!
