Say hello to our new bass player, Gary “Lt. Dan” Sinise! Yes, Fab, this means you are out of a job. Hope you saved your share of our (considerable & impressive) performance fees!

After successfully killing/slaying/murdering our set (srsly tho we were v v good) and saying goodbye to our many friends old and new, there’s nothing left to do but curl up on our fancy Successful Band Mattresses and get a good night’s rest. #rockstarlife #itisalittlechilly #iwillbeokiguess

OMG! We’ll be in Montreal for our second @pouzzafest this weekend. If you run into us, we will prolly palm you one of these purdy cards we’ve done up.

Come see us Sunday at Café Cléopatre and give us a polite nod!

So.

We've learned that some people were made uncomfortable by statements made onstage during the course of last night's event.

Not only did we, as a band, fail to call those statements out when we heard them, we failed to even recognize them as something that would cause anyone present to feel unsafe. We may have written a whole song about exactly this kinda thing but we've still got those blind spots that allow us to dismiss certain behaviours with an eyeroll and then forget about them.

We are crushed that anyone would feel anything less than perfectly comfortable at a show we're playing. We have to do better, and we promise we will.

-chris, fab & sean.

EXPLOITING THE ARCHIVES!

In April 2017 we released our first proper music video. Shot by the three of us and animated by Chris, this entire endeavour was described by an anonymous source at the CBC as "a bad idea."

We recorded the song in our jam space for an aborted compilation and decided to release it anyway. The single raised tens of dollars for the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research, most of which was likely spent on the weekly mailers we're still receiving.

Unfortunately, no MRA bros were offended during this video's release cycle.

Our social media intern just told me that our 100th IG post should be our best yet. I think you’ll all agree that this single image combines the two best things of all time: 1) cats attempting to devour life-sustaining particles of light and 2) framed photos of Rivers Cuomo. Anyway, listen to Talk Show Host, y’all. New songs soon.

"The best damn 13 minutes I've had this week."

Big thanks to Jen over at New Noise Magazine for this super flattering review!

A year ago today we'd just finished recording the thing. Time for a full-length?

This giant gaping hole represents more than a few missing teeth. It was Honest Ed’s, yeah, but back there was also the spot where we played our first show three years ago.

You pull the teeth, you change the smile. I love you, Toronto, but you need to start flossing better.

Well, it's snowing here in Toronto, and this can only mean one thing: IT'S BASICALLY CHRISTMAS AGAIN!

To celebrate what we're now going to call Aprilmas, we're happy to announce that this summer we're going to be part of the next Canada-Europe split release from our new friends at PCT musique, alongside France's BIAS and Beligum's Chump!

More details to come once we've actually finished writing and recording our songs for it (😬), but rest assured those songs will be v v good and stuff.

"A rhythm section that would do Cream justice."

Holy moly. We will gladly stick that particular feather in our collective cap. Big thanks to the folks at FYI Music News for picking "I Hate Men (I Hate All Men)" as their Track of the Day!

Happy 3rd birthday to Cool Kids Booking in Ljubljana, Slovenia! They booked us and BURST ONE'S SIDE last June and we had a great/weird time in their beautiful city. Plus, Fab got to pet a dog.

Meanwhile, I ate a burrito at a local jail-turned-hostel, got food poisoning and had to sleep half-naked on the cold concrete in front of the venue’s stage just to keep cool. This inspired our new concept record, “If This Tour Doesn’t Kill You, the Burritos Will.”
