I think that it is fair to say that 2013 has been an exciting and nerve rattling year. In a lot of ways, it may seem that we have not been up to much, however things have been in the underground workings for quite some time. Thanks to the wonderful gift of our van, we were able to start out this year visiting most of you around the midwest. More of that to follow. On July 27th we will be playing at Wicker Park Fest. It is a great honor to be a part of such an incredible line up this year! Also coming up on the horizon, we will be releasing both of our EPs on vinyl through our really great friends at Jurassic Pop! We have worked hard with Dylan and Jeff, the label owners, to create a really great product that we hope all of you are going to enjoy! Finally, and arguably the most exciting update is that we are going to be in the studio at the beginning of August starting our first full length album. A lot of time, thought, sweat, tears, arguments, etc. has gone in to writing a collection of songs that we hope you will enjoy.
For now, thank you for your continued support and we will see you on the road!

Check out this feature the Vancouver Sun(!) did on “The Random Factor” that just so happened to catch us at our Friday set at SXSW this past week! Thanks Vancouver Sun and in general, thank you Vancouver.
Austin/SXSW was a very meaningful experience to us. We met so many fantastic people and reconnected with some that came down from Chicago and were kind enough to come see us and say hi. Most of all we were just happy to play and hear so much music. We love playing music more than anything, and you’ve helped give us opportunities like this. Thank you!
