Our Fall Tour has officially, finally begun. Thanks to everyone who made it out to sweaty, screamed-out Night One of our three-night residency at the legendary Fillmore here in San Francisco—where we played our entire first album and debuted our new song, “Wrong,” for the very first time.

For Night Two, during which we’ll be playing our second album, All At Once, in its entirety, we’ve decided to do something extra special:

The FULL CONCERT will be streamed LIVE on Yahoo! starting at 10:00 p.m. PDT, so you can watch the whole thing from anywhere in the world. The link counts down until showtime, so you’ll know exactly when it all begins..

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..

To learn more, visit Amnesty International.

A Special Three-Night Residency in San Francisco

Fillmore

To kick off the tour, we’ve decided to do something we’ve never done before… For three consecutive nights at the legendary Fillmore in San Francisco, we’ll be performing each of our three studio albums in order of release, beginning with our self-titled debut record on September 18th, continuing with All At Once on September 19th, and concluding with Such Hot Blood on September 20th.

If you’d like to attend all three of these shows, you can purchase a Residency Ticket for all three nights at a discounted rate. These tickets are available on our online store this Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. HERE.  Ticketmaster will have a limited number of Residency Tickets available on sale this Friday at 10:00 a.m. HERE

Some of these songs, we’ve only played onstage a handful of times, so we’re really looking forward to these performances. Of course, we’ll also play select songs from all our albums every night—plus brand-new ones.

Hotel Kabuki:
We know many of you might come from out of town to SF for the long weekend, so we were able to strike up a deal with the Hotel Kabuki (just two blocks from the Fillmore). They were kind enough to offer a 15% discount (based on availability, so this promo rate can sell out). To take advantage of this offer, please use the promo code: “tateforever
