We are thrilled today to announce the release of part 1 of our double-EP Portico series!!!!
This past June, we spent 2 weeks living and recording in a 100 year-old Baptist church outside of Athens, GA called the Portico. We went in to start working on demos for a still-to-come full-length LP, and to take a stab at a few cover songs to release along the way. The venue and the vibes were just too strong and we ended up with a lot of tracks we want to share with you over the next few months.
Thanks to the good folks at Brooklyn Vegan, you can get a sneak peak of the project with the premiere of the music video for the new original, “Only Here For Your Love”
Portico I drops in full on November 4th across all your favorite digital platforms. Pre-order the full record and now and get an immediate download of "Only Here For Your Love."
Portico II will be available early 2017.
This music video was filmed at the church, during our recording session, by our mega-talented friends Alex Beaver and Bo McKenzie and stars an amazing cast of misfits including our friends the High Divers from Charleston, SC, multi-instrumentalist vibe-master Kiffy Myers, sonic wizard Drew Vandenberg, and High Shoals, GA undisputed All-Star, Mr. Brett Mizerak (like the pool player).
This project has ended up meaning a whole lot to us on so many different levels. We went into this session with no specific goals to speak of and what we found were loads of that inexplicable Chi that you can only conjure in a very old place of worship. We hope you feel the same array and intensity of emotions listening these songs as we did creating them.
We are blowing the doors off Q4 this year, with new tunes, a bunch of fresh tour dates in some of our favorite towns, including ATLANTA, CHICAGO, NEW YORK, DC, NASHVILLE, CHARLESTON, ASHEVILLE, CHARLOTTE (NYE!), and so many more! We’ve got a lot of surprises along the way, and will be hitting 2017 at well over 1.21 Gigawatts. So check out the dates below, saddle up, and come join us!!
We’ll see y’all all soon!!!
AND HAPPY MUTHALICKIN' HALLOWEEEEEEN!!!!!
