Meet Adrian

e3d740a5c3dfb9dfda694a3d46188d3a

Due to unforeseen, last-minute circumstances, our temporary Noah replacement, Ashley Dzerigian, will be unable to join us for this tour.

To fill in on bass, we’ve gone and recruited our buddy Adrian Rodriguez to step up to the task. He’s a quick study, monster bassist, and more-than-capable late-night drinking partner. We’ve hazed him and now welcome him proudly to our wolf pack.

Kimmel TONIGHT

JKL TATE

We’ve been asked to perform on the show tonight. It’s always a blast stopping by here, and Kimmel has been a long-time supporter of our band since the early days. Plus it’s right in our backyard, so naturally we said yes. (Also, he serves booze backstage, so you know…)

The show airs at 11:35/10:35c on ABC. We’ll be on somewhere near the end of the program. Hope you can tune in! Click HERE for more info.

Noah takes a break… Ashley steps in

image (14)

Whaaaat?! With the exception of four songs in Seattle (during which Noah was stuck in a cab), the five of us have played every single Airborne show together… But things happen—and by “things,” we mean babies.

So congrats are in order to our wayward bassist, who will soon be welcoming a new tiny person into his family. Does he know what he’s in for? Who knows. But to prepare for this inevitable upheaval in his up-until-now music- and motorcycle-based existence, Noah will be taking some time off to tend to his homestead and grapple with the sleep-deprived joys of young fatherhood.

In his temporary absence, we’ve asked our old friend and all-around badass Ashley Dzerigian to fill in and do what she does best. She’s a ridiculously talented bassist, and we couldn’t be happier to have her onstage with us.

NEW FEB SHOWS ANNOUNCED

Not so much a blur as a rapid-fire montage set to music and peppered with long bouts of sitting on tour buses and planes—and the occasional picturesque European town—our memories of 2013 are a bit incoherent at this point. So much happened this year, and still it wasn’t long enough. We’ve begun thinking about the new year, and yes, we’ve started putting together some tour dates in February, starting on the 5th in Florida..

Most tickets go on sale this Friday, December 20th at 10:00 a.m. (See below)

Dallas Buyers Club named one of iTunes Best Soundtracks of 2013

iTunes included the Dallas Buyers Club soundtrack—featuring our new song “Hell and Back“—on its “Best Soundtracks of 2013” year-end list. A seriously inspiring true story, this is a project we continue to be excited about. You can get “Hell and Back” HERE.

The film itself also earned Golden Globe nominations last week, for Matthew McConaughey (Best Actor) and Jared Leto (Best Supporting Actor). We hope you can find time to watch this film, if you haven’t already..

“Hell and Back” out TODAY on iTunes + “Dallas Buyers Club” Soundtrack

Today, we’re extremely excited to be announcing the release of our brand-new song “Hell and Back,” which will also be featured on the soundtrack of the upcoming film Dallas Buyers Club, starring Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto, and Jennifer Garner. It’s the true story of Ron Woodroof, an AIDS patient in the mid-80s who defied federal regulations and pharmaceutical companies to get medication from abroad for himself and others. It’s an amazing story of fighting the system and a project we’re very proud to be a part of.

You can get the song NOW on iTunesAmazon, and most other places.

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 Baltimore, Norfolk, Philly, Rochester, 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 …

SUCH HOT BLOOD U.K./European Release, plus VINYL…

We’re extremely excited to announce both the U.K./European release of Such Hot Blood, and the limited-release vinyl edition of our third studio album—both of which include two bonus tracks: “Dublin” and “The Way Home,” not included on the original release.

SHBVinyl

We also want to thank you for waiting. When we first came to the U.K., we had a self-released, self-produced record. After three years on a label, it was clear they didn’t have our best interests in mind. We felt the major label system in the U.K. was outdated and archaic, and we bought our rights back from Mercury so that we could release our new album independently. The resulting legal hassle stalled the record release, but now, we’re overjoyed to be releasing our new album in the U.K. and Europe at last..

Such Hot Blood (plus bonus tracks) will be released in mainland Europe onSeptember 13th, and in the U.K. on September 30th. You can pre-order now onAmazon here:
U.K.
* Germany (for all other countries, check your local Amazon site)
* Available for pre-order on iTunes beginning August 2nd

Aaaand… for you record lovers, we’ve put together a very special limited-edition180-Gram Vinyl of Such Hot Blood (pictured above), which includes a bonus 7-inch (containing the additional tracks “Dublin” …
