We’re extremely excited to announce two more shows in August, one of them with a full orchestra. Pre-Sale for both shows starts TOMORROW (Saturday, May 11th) at10:00 a.m. Details and links below:
In Costa Mesa, we’ll be playing our first-ever Southern California orchestra show with Orange County’s own Pacific Symphony as part of its Wavelength Festival of Music at the Pacific Amphitheatre on Friday, August 23rd. Joining us to open the concert will be a band we’ve loved for a while: Delta Spirit. Please do yourself a favor and watch the video for their song “California.” Makes us miss our misspent youths..
Also, on Thursday, August 1st, we’ll be playing a show in Tempe, AZ at the Marquee Theater.
(Links will go live when pre-sale starts.)
While roaming through the desert in and around Coachella last month, we managed to stop by Baeble to play a song and do an interview. Watch it HERE.
Our new album’s now on Spotify. You’ll also be able to hear insightful, mildly amusing track-by-track commentary, courtesy of Mikel and Noah.
We premiered our brand-new acoustic video for our song “True Love” this week, as part of our ongoing one-take Bombastic series:

We’ll be playing Jimmy Kimmel Live TONIGHT, May 2nd. Show starts at 11:35/10:35c on ABC—we’ll be on towards the end. Hope you can watch!
After two dizzying years of touring, writing, and recording since our last album, and something like 800 shows since we played our very first in L.A.’s Echo Park, we’re incredibly excited and proud to be releasing our third studio album: Such Hot Blood. It means so much to us, and so do you. Thank you.
For those of you who have already bought our Timeless EP on iTunes, you can “complete the album” and get the entirety of the new record for just $3.73 by clicking HERE.

On June 18th, we’ll be playing a special summer evening concert in New York’s Central Park as part of its celebrated SummerStage series. If you haven’t been, it’s a gorgeous outdoor space right off the 5th Avenue and 72nd Street entrance to the park. Oh, and the show’s completely free.
We’ll be joined by our good friends and frequent collaborators the Calder Quartet—as well as a special guest orchestra… Seriously, we can’t wait.

Spinner is streaming the entirety of our upcoming album for a limited time, so have at it and listen HERE.
Almost two years ago to the day, we released our second album. Since then it’s been a blistering rush from city to city (and the occasional field)—everything swallowed in a gargantuan wash of lights, sounds, and people. You never can tell what it’ll be like until you’re in it, and when you are it’s hard to describe. Anyway, we love it. And somewhere in there, we wrote and recorded our third album, Such Hot Blood. We love that, too. It’s coming out on April 30th. We honestly can’t wait for you to hear it.

We’re excited to announce a string of brand-new dates in June—in Jacksonville, Cleveland, Louisville, Indianapolis, Providence, and Albany.
Also, due to our April 30th release date, we’ve had to shift our travel plans around that time, and as a result, we’re rescheduling our May 1st and 2nd shows in St. Petersburg and Orlando to June 8th and 9th (respectively). The same tickets will work for the new dates. We apologize for any inconvenience, and you can of course refund your tickets at your point of purchase if you can’t make the new dates. If you run into any problems, shoot us an email at email@example.com, and we’ll sort it out. We hope you understand.

Tomorrow, we commence our first official tour for the new album, beginning with two sold-out shows in San Diego. It’s times like these that we like to take a moment to sleep in beds and eat with actual silverware before these things become distant memories.. Denver and Boulder are also sold out, with Seattle, Boston, Portland, Vancouver, and D.C. going soon, so get your tickets soon. You can find all our dates with links HERE. We can’t wait to see you in the thick of it.
To mark the upcoming tour, we’ve added loads of new designs to our online store: shirts, totes, tanks, sweaters, etc. Have at it.
We’re very excited to announce that our good friends from L.A. Nightmare Air will be supporting us on our pre-Coachella dates (with Kodaline to open post-Coachella). They make beautiful, haunting music, while actually melting faces.. So we hope you can come early to check them out. Here’s their video for “Escape.”
After three months of shooting and editing, two failed sand castles, and one near-drowning, we proudly present to you the music video for our song “Timeless.” Oh, and no ballerinas were hurt in the making of this video:
