Home for a day

So we just wrapped up our five week US/Canada tour tonight with a show at the Bowery Ballroom with our friends, Stupid Party and Times New Viking. One day off to get rid of this cold and catch up on E!, MTV, VH1 and Bravo trashy programming, then flying to the UK on Wednesday to embark on the start of our 4 week Eurotour. Thanks to everyone all over the US and Canada who came out to our shows and all the bands we played with. You made for a rad time. Europe, see you all soon!

I will leave you with some tour pictures and tour highlights..

The Crepe Place gig was fantastic! One of the best gigs I've been to in awhile.
