Recording!

We’ve been recording.  We’ve been interviewed (it’s a good one, check it out).  And we have some shows coming up in May/June.  Things are good.  How are you?

THANK YOU, 2013!

We just played our biggest show of the year to a sold out Bowery Ballroom in New York City with our pals The Front Bottoms.  What any amazing way to cap off a crazy 2013!
After starting the year off on an awkward note, saying goodbye to our friend and band mate Ben, we weren’t really sure what the future held.  But we decided to do what we knew we had to do: keep going! We added long-time friend Andy Szymcik to our line-up as a guitarist/vocalist, released our album “X vs. X” in September, received the best press we’ve ever received, and had the busiest fall on record in terms of tour dates.  So many of these 2013 tour dates were among our best shows ever, and we met some really amazing people along the way.
Thank you to everyone who made 2013 a special year!
We already have some exciting things planned for 2014, including releasing new music in the first half of the year… and playing lots more shows!  Until then…
Happy New Year & a 00111100 00110011 to y’all,
Matt, Mike, & Andy

Bye-Bye Ben!

Hey guys, we’re sad to announce that our show next week on 4/24 @ Great Scott will be our last show with Ben :(   We wish him all the best as he focuses on his non-Bynars projects, his new business, and (sorry, ladies) his recent engagement!  We would love it if you came out and helped us give Ben a proper send off next Wednesday.  He has been around since day 1, has given so much of himself to the band, and is such a positive creative force in our group… to say we’ll miss him is a huge understatement.  Thank you Ben, for everything ♥

Let’s do this.

New single “All I Wanna Do Is Have Some Fun Tonight”

Our new single “All I Wanna Do Is Have Some Fun Tonight” is available today! You can download it for free at our bandcamp site. This track is almost 12 minutes long and will be featured on our second album X vs. X, which will be out later this year. Enjoy!

Mixing

Day 1 of mixing was a success yesterday. More next week!
