Today, we’re in Chicago’s Grant Park for the annual music and madness extravaganza that is Lollapalooza. If you’re here, we’ll see you at The Grove Stage at 6:00 p.m. CDT.

If you can’t make it, you can watch Lollapalooza’s own LIVE VIDEO STREAM of our entire performance starting at 6 p.m. sharp (Chicago time).

Plus, SiriusXM Alt Nation will be airing rebroadcasts of our set all week.

For this special occasion, we’re excited to be debuting two brand-new songs: “California” and “Dope Machines.”

Which is one way to say that there will be new music coming this Fall. We can’t wait to show you…

Neda 5-Year Anniversary

Five years ago today, 26-year-old Neda Agha-Soltan was murdered on the streets of Tehran during a protest against the disputed election of then-president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. In the chaos of the aftermath, someone filmed her death (at the hands of a government paramilitary group) and put it online. The video struck a chord with people around the world, including us. For the one-year anniversary in 2010, we worked with Amnesty International to raise awareness about the ongoing human rights struggle in Iran. We created an online campaign called “Neda Speaks” and hosted a charity concert in Los Angeles. We also wrote this song:



The song still marks a turning point for us, something about the power of art and the limitations of that power in the face of totalitarianism. We aren’t politicians or soldiers, just people still haunted by the image of that woman and what she represents..
