I hope you've had the best summer. I went to Iceland and visited family. That was nice. There was a lot of cake. I have a bunch of cool news and some tour-dates for you. Are you ready?
Dad Rocks! mash-up EP to be released - Free track!
A while ago I got a post on my facebook from a dude in Sheffield, England. His name is Jack Hetherington, and what he posted was a mash-up of one of my songs. I fell in love with his work, and told him if he'd make another five awesome mash-ups of my tunes, I would release them on my label, Father Figure Records. Turns out, they're all better then my own songs. It's out on October 10th, the day we head on our UK tour. Here's a free download for y'all [below], and a digital pre-order.
Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France release, plus tour!
Mount Modern is finally being released in mainland Europe, and will be available in Germany, Austria and Switzerland through Father Figure Records and Rough Trade on September 7th, and the album will be released in France on the very good 'Les Disques Normales' on September 24th. Dad Rocks! has been confirmed for some very nice festivals like Berlin Music Week, Reeperbahn Festival and Torstrasse Festival. You'll find all the tour-dates below.
Vinyl back in stock
After our copies of Mount Modern on white vinyl sold out, we've finally made a new edition, and this time it's back in black. You can order a vinyl HERE.
