Hi, it's 9am in Auckland, we're up early watching Chelsea V Manchester City. Ben is talking to himself and yelling at the TV even tho City is winning. Maybe he's still asleep? Tonight we're playing our last show with Foo Fighters, at Western Springs Stadium. For us the tour felt like one giant spa-vacation with a bit of music involved. I watched the entire Foo Fighters set in Sydney and it was honestly jaw-dropping. After, we are having a big party, then spending the next 34 hours getting home. If you are in Vancouver and want to bring us presents at 7am, we have a really long stop-over.
Anyways a bunch of news today:
Here is our new video, for "Turn the Season" directed again by Scott Cudmore and featuring Richard Dreyfuss:
We are also on the cover of Spin this month. I had a subscription to Spin when I was 13 and basically read it cover to cover every month. Also they gave us record of the year for "Octavio made the Bomb". Just kidding, for DCTL.
TONIGHT we're also gonna be on an episode of No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain doing our rendition of "Jingle Bells". Should be fun. Depending on what time zone you are in, this may already have happened.
IT HAPPENED: Here is the video.
Also don't forget you can order YEAR OF THE TIGER here and here. It makes an excellent stocking stuffer (when it comes out on Feb 26).
Lastly, there are still some tickets left to our benefit jams in Toronto next week. Please read about the charities and buy tickets here!
Oh also we're playing in Brooklyn with Dom and Radical Dads, basically as soon as we get off the plane from Australia. Get ticekts to see our jet-lagged selves HERE.
Wow what a lot of hyperlinks. If you need a recap please click HERE.
