WFMU disc jockey Bill Kelly

Many thanks to Bill Kelly, our favorite disc jockey at WFMU, for featuring our song “Hopscotch Gunner” on his latest Real Rock & Roll CD compilation. We’re right alongside some of our favorite artists including Tom Verlaine, The Outlaws, The Cramps, and the Sir Douglas Quintet. Don’t miss our next NYC show at The Mercury Lounge on Friday 9/23.

Mercury Lounge Thursday May 12th

After several months demo-ing new songs and tending to various side projects, we return to The Mercury Lounge for a first-ever co-headlining bill with our friends Lead of Foxes . It’s an EARLY SHOW, perfect for the commuters who don’t typically get to hang around late. Hope to see you there!

Top 25 of 2015

Thanks to DJ Rich Russo for including our song Hopscotch Gunner
among his Top 25 songs of 2015. Listen here for the whole countdown, including songs by Bruce Springsteen, Jason Isbell, and the Front Bottoms.

9th Annual NYC Christmas Show

On Thursday 12/17, we return to The Mercury Lounge in New York City for an all-star lineup including the return of Knockout Drops. And as always, Yule Dogs will bring it all home with a star-studded sing-along set of all your favorite yuletide classics. This show always sells out, so get your tickets in advance.

LastFM Acoustic Sessions

We recently taped a live studio session with LastFM, capturing video footage of Wormburner in a rare acoustic setting. Each video kicks off with some interview commentary that sets up each song. From our new LP “Pleasant Living in Planned Communities”, here are acoustic takes of the songs “Somewhere Else To Be” and “Doxology”.

We made the “Dean’s List”

Veteran music critic Robert Christgau has included us on his latest “Dean’s List”, ranking our new LP among the best records of the past year. We are among but a handful of rock bands to make the list, and we are thrilled to share the spotlight with records by The Flaming Lips, Drive-By Truckers, Old 97s, TV on the Radio, New Pornographers, Parquet Courts, and Wussy.

High marks from Robert Christgau
