As I jog the blossom-covered streets of Victoria today, pink skin, pink petals, trying to shape up for suit season (which includes both swim and wedding suits), I had an urge to write you folks – our fans – to say thanks for the support, thanks for giving a shit, and thanks for telling us you do! Facebook, Youtube and the like makes it more possible than ever for fans to communicate with creators; and I just want to say that every comment from a stranger, or even a like, matters more than you may think to all of us. It helps us recognize that our music is out there traveling through the air, pushing ear drums and sinking in to minds. So thank you for all your support and your enthusiasm for what’s to come! We love what we do, and a big part of the reason we do it is because it matters to you.
So today marks the release of the first single off our new album. The song is called Boredom and Joy, and the album (coming July 10) will also be titled Boredom and Joy. If you are in Canada you can now purchase the digital single from iTunes. If you are anywhere else in the world, you can purchase it via Bandcamp. We hope you enjoy this first taste of the album (produced by Emery Dobyns and recorded in New York, NY), and please drop us a line on Facebook to let us know what you think!
