We premiered our brand-new acoustic video for our song “True Love” this week, as part of our ongoing one-take Bombastic series:
dir. Jon Danovic
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.
More info 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.
If you pre-order the physical album on our website, you’ll be able to download a non-EP album track, “The Fifth Day,” immediately upon ordering. (Note: There is a $4.99 shipping charge, which applies to your total order—not per item.)
If you pre-order the physical album at one of our shows, you’ll get a free copy ofThe Secret EP at the show.
All pre-orders will be delivered by April 30th. (International shipping will take longer.)

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.
Rescheduled Florida Shows:
Pre-Sale for the dates below starts tomorrow (April 11th) at 10:00 a.m.:

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.
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.”
For each album release, it’s become sort of a tradition for us to record live, one-take acoustic videos as alternate versions of the songs on the record. Yes, there’s something to with deconstructing these meticulously recorded songs to hear them laid bare, but really it’s just fun to hear people play music in a room—or a moving car, or a boat, or a church. Or a bus.. Anyway, it’s an ongoing series we’ve been calling the “Bombastic.”
The Secret EP is now available. It includes “Timeless” and three other songs from our upcoming record. Don’t worry about paying extra for the album when it’s released . iTunes will just charge the difference to complete the album.
