Our rad label, Greyday Records, is releasing a very special charity compilation this summer- Live From Nowhere Near You Vol 2. The 3-CD comp is available now for pre-order in the Greyday Store & includes rare and/or exclusive tracks from Wilco, Bright Eyes, Ryan Adams, Elliott Smith, Daniel Johnston, The Helio Sequence, The Strokes, Modest Mouse, Third Eye Blind, Eddie Vedder, The Dandy Warhols, Mike Watt, and roughly 50 more!

...Oh, and us! That's right, with purchase of the 3-CD set (for only $15!), you also get downloads of even MORE exclusive material, including an unreleased demo from Elliott Smith(!), and an exclusive new IWTDI track, "Waiting On A Wire"! It's actually one of my favorite songs that we've ever written- I hope you can all check it out ---> all profits go to providing aid and counseling to homeless youth via Outside In.

As if Live From Nowhere Near You Vol 2 wasn't enough, Greyday is releasing yet another charity comp this winter- featuring yet another exclusive track from yours truly....more on that soon!!

JULY 31!

So we were asked to play a show for a friend/fan of the band for his wedding after-party. He wanted it to be at Deep South The Bar in Raleigh, and he told us it could be a public or private event, our call. We initially chose to make it private, so as not to interfere with any other local shows we might have had around the same time...

Turns out, we didn't end up booking any other local shows this summer, and also turns out our friends from Atlanta, Today The Moon Tomorrow The Sun, needed a show that night.

SO! Please join us for one of our very few Triangle area shows this year- Sunday, July 31st at Deep South The Bar in Raleigh! There will be a small party of post-wedding revelers(which of course means we're playing a very special set- IWTDI requests from the groom, plus a handful of covers!), but we invite you to join the fun for a mere $5 at the door. TTM,TTS will get things going promptly at 10:30, with IWTDI taking the stage right at 11:15.

We are in the process of booking a couple of tours for the fall, but in the meantime, our only other scheduled show is in Atlanta with TTM,TTS at Star Bar on Friday, July 15.

Hope to see you all soon!

Aaaaaaand we're DONE. Album #4 is tracked and will be mixed in a couple of weeks. I'm a bit dazed and ineloquent right now, but the whole band seems to agree that this is the best record any of us have ever been a part of- and we couldn't have done it without our GENIUS producers, Joshua Cain & Ed Ackerson. Thank you, guys.

We also owe a huge thanks to our home-away-from-home, MPLS, and the wonderful people who populate this beautiful city: Tommy Rehbein, Justin Pierre, Brittany Nelson, Lindsay Hutton, Ashley Ackerson, Amber Corbet, Jared Gudnason, Kelly Conant, Farewell Continental, Dan Mariska & his band, The Triple Rock Social Club- to name just a few!

We'll post some more pictures and some video from the session, eventually. And expect more details on the album in the next few months.

Now: we drive 20 hours!
