U.K./European Tour Starts TOMORROW

Eleven hours and 12 drinks later, we’re officially on British soil, and despite being at Heathrow, we’re immediately reminded of how much we’ve missed this place (the U.K., not Heathrow). At the moment, we’re either jetlagged or delirious or a bit of both. Either way, we’re so glad to be back—even if we do have to hit the road immediately and find a Roadchef somewhere for lunch…

NEW SONG PREMIERE: “Hell and Back”

We’re excited to announce the release of a brand-new song entitled “Hell and Back.” The song was written—as Mikel says—”in the helmet” while on a recent motorcycle trip across the Rocky Mountains from Omaha to Los Angeles.

You can be the FIRST to hear it by tuning in TOMORROW (Friday) to Philadelphia’s Radio 104.5, which will be exclusively premiering the track at 12:15 p.m. EDT. If you don’t live in the Philly area, you can stream it online RIGHT HERE.

In addition, SiriusXM’s Alt Nation will be playing “Hell and Back” throughout the rest of the day

Fall Tour Happening NOW

Only a week into our Fall Tour, and already we’re having trouble remembering which city we’re in, how we passed the hours between 2 and 4:30 a.m. the previous night, and why Steven is now barred from setting foot on Harvard’s campus. Okay, we made that last one up (though, we should thank Harvard’s History Department for letting us crash their party Friday night).

This week, we’re in BaltimoreNorfolkPhillyRochester, and more. Click above on SHOWS for a complete listing, and to get tickets. We hope to see you soon.. Tonight, we’re in Richmond. We will attempt to behave ourselves.

We’re also very excited to be performing with American Authors, who will be joining us for the entire American leg of this tour, starting tonight. Also, we did in fact take our name from a book by one particular American author, so there’s that, too.

For our European dates, beginning October 1st, we’ll be joined by our dear friends and old timey longshoremen The Drowning Men. We’ve toured with them a few times before (much to the detriment of our livers), and we honestly can’t say enough amazing things about them.
