HI

Hey everyone, I hope you have had a nice few days since we spoke. It was great to see everyone being cool on the comments section after a long while of total weirdness. Not that we don't like the weirdness, mostly we just aren't into the hate. Which I guess is cool too, I know everyone has to have places to let certain feelings out, and so if that's the service we can provide you guys all with after 10 years of playing genre-defying, award winning, "fan-alienating" (and also Arcade Fire tour with-ing) music, then so be it, who are we to judge? If thinking of blunt or creative ways to tell us we suck is what gets you through the day, then we support you - maybe we'll even start printing nofx-style "we suck" tshirts to sell at our shows? That way, you can still think that we suck, but at least we'll get paid (more) for sucking. Plus we will still know that we rule, because our parents tell us so (today, even). But yeah, I'm glad everyone is feeling chipper. In fact the only weird thing that happened lately is Joe Cornilesse calling me "M" all the time for some reason - I'm guessing it's either a) it's a weird tribute to some French-Noire "cinema" (that means movies) thing, or b) he's trying to protect the identity of the person who writes this blog (which is not necessary - I'm totally fine with everyone knowing that my name is Melvin Hawerchuk and that my real email address is vibrationandhum@hotmail.com).

ANYWAYS back to the point, lately this blog will be mostly about news because for the next few months we're gonna be a real-time band, which means there will be lots of things to share with the internet. The first thing to share is that in addition to the live concert you know about that's happening on April 9th (and also all the ones you don't know about), we're also going to be playing a concert on April 15th - in Palm Springs. Here is the poster:


As you know, we played Coachella two years ago, so it's a bit too soon for us to play the festival proper again, but we figured it would be fun to hang out in the desert and get to stay at the Ace Hotel for free because they give you huge bags of pistachios and also the rooms kind of look like indoor jungle gyms. Also it is a huge party zone. Just before you ask - this show is FREE and anyone can go (you have to be in Palm Springs to attend - not New York or Portland). It starts at midnight, so if you are going to the festival, you can come to this because that ends at 10pm (not all 50,000 people can come to this show, the hotel is too small). We're gonna release our next track from the LP at this show, called "A Little Death". Now let me be candid with you - it's just an mp3 release, so it's not like you will get to take anything home with you at the show. In fact unless you have a really good data-plan, it might even be better that you stay home on the 16th if you want to make sure you get the track - since who knows what the wireless situation will be like at the Ace - unless we figure out how to give away hard-copy mp3s between now and the 16th. Then the record industry would REALLY be fucked.

Anyhow, another exciting thing that's happening is we're doing another Record Store Day record. Last year if you remember, we co-ordinated it so we released a 7" with 10 different covers, all featuring a different record store on the cover. Probably entirely because of that, record stores managed to survive another year, so there's gonna be another Record Store Day this year. So we decided instead of recording any new music, why don't we just release this compilation album from 1977 we'd been sitting on since from before we were all born? We found like 750 copies of this great comp so we're gonna just use that. Here is one of the songs:

Animal Man - Do You Feed?



Oh I almost forgot, we made a video for our new single! Check it out below:




OK well that's some new info. We'll have more cool stuff to announce on THURSDAY. In the meantime, why not download our new record for free HERE?

The new song is great, it's a shame I live in England but the palm springs show sounds awesome, though I'll see you when you do your tour here. Plus I'm pleased to be you first follower on Twitter.

I live in England too and sometimes I think it is a shame, because I would actually rather live in Belgium, but I'm thinking about going to one of the shows in the Netherlands in May.

I have to say that David's Town LP looks really cool / intriguing / completely bonkers / totally shite.

Hopefully covered all the bases there so I won't look silly when we find out what it actually is.

That poster had me tripping and i'm not high on anything. (besides life, of course!!) Ben has weird hair and Sandy looks as sexy as usual. Everything seems to be good in the 'hood (except if that hood's parkdale and there's a serial beater/killer on the loose who targets mentally ill homeless people).
