Swingin' Back into Action...

We hope everyone had a nice, relaxing Labor Day. We certainly did, but we're happy to be diving into a string of regional shows this month to get the gears going again. TONIGHT join us in for the last installment of Swingin' Summer Thursdays, a free block party concert series in West Chester. We'll be playing three sets from 6:30 to 9:30 - come say hello!

On Saturday, we return to our New York friends in Hastings-on-Hudson for the 8th Annual Take Me to the River Music and Arts Festival. Reptar, New Madrid, Tony Trischka & Michael Daves, The Howlin' Brothers and a ton of other great acts are playing on two stages with art and activities for the whole family. Next Friday, we're back home and joining our buds Old Baltimore Speedway to help the Logan House celebrate their birthday, and then the following day, we head back to New York for the Mclean Avenue Fall Festival in Yonkers - another incredible outdoor family affair.

But it's the next one we're really excited about... On Sunday, September 21st we return to the 2nd Annual Open Space Music Fest to help our friends at Save the Valley continue their fight to protect our backyard. We're joining an incredible lineup inside the Figure 8 Barn at Bellevue State Park including Johnny Gallagher Jr., Grace Weber, Cheers Elephant and Marc Silver & The Stonethrowers. This is a cause that means a lot to us, and we'd really appreciate it if you took the time to check out Save the Valley and get your tickets to the fest now!

Hope to see you soon!

HERE's a nice article from XPN and a link to stream our new EP Fabric Room before it's release in July!! We're so lucky to have such awesome fans and SO we're happy to share a preview of the ruckus we have planned for the summer. Listen to the EP, pre-order some of our new digs (with a chance to win a pair of Firefly Saturday passes if you order before June 13th!), heat up some leftover Eggshells, come out to a show, generally be simultaneously merry & dirty. We hope to see you soon…

Fabric Room EP Announcement

As many of you know we've spent some time recording new material. We had the pleasure of working on our forthcoming release, Fabric Room, with one of our favorite Philadelphia producers, Bill Moriarty. He's impressed us time and time again on albums by The Lawsuits, Toy Soldiers, Dr. Dog and Hoots & Hellmouth, to name a few, and we can't wait to share what we've been up to with you. The 7-song EP is due out July 15th, but we have a few chances for you to hear it live and even get your hands on it sooner...

First, check out our Fabric Room EP presale store! Each EP purchase comes with a free download of our new single, Eighty Seven, and those who pitch in to help us press our first vinyl record will receive an additional free track before its release, Warships. You've been asking us (and we've been wanting) to release an album on vinyl for quite some time. Now we need your help! We need to pre-sell 120 units before we can put this into production and make it a reality. The vinyl is available by itself, or as part of a nice little limited edition package containing an exclusive tee, CD, autographed tote bag and autographed vinyl. We'd love to meet our goal before our record release date, so please, help us spread the word!

If you can't wait until July, copies of Fabric Room will be exclusively available before its release through FYE at Firefly Music Festival happening June 19th through the 22nd in Dover, DE. We'll be playing on Saturday, June 21st at 12:30pm with a meet-and-greet directly following the performance – come say hello!

Then finally, on Friday, July 11th, our Philly friends Commonwealth Choir and the Levee Drivers are joining us for the official Fabric Room EP Release Show at World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington. We simply can't wait to rock Downstairs Live once again with two of our favorite acts in the region. Save the date and come rock out and grab yourself a copy of the new EP!

Of course we also have a few upcoming tour dates so you can familiarize yourself with the new tunes in the meantime. This Friday, you can catch us at the Logan House in Wilmington with The Future Unwritten and on Saturday we'll be in Doylestown, PA for a night at Maxwell's on Main – we'd love to see you there.
