Happy October folks! Got back from Gonerfest earlier this week, and what an amazing four days it was! Smirk, Sweeping Promises, and Spread Joy all played great sets (really though, every band on the bill ruled), the weather was incredible, and it was great to meet/see quite a few of y'all for the first time in ages. Thank you to the GONER folks for making it happen - we'll def be back in 2022! Also spent some time in Louisiana and got to hang with the Waste Man and Spllit folks - what an amazing trip it was! Anyhow, got a new album and single for ya today, here we gooooo.
