Our new shirts are available over at the Blacktooth Records online store. Click here to visit it! The new design is called “The Ekberg Promise" and is a sure-fire miss on the PC level somehow, I’m sure. Those who are lucky have the DIY, limited edition version. Now, everyone can get the slick and built-to-last version. Here’s to both!

Just got back from tour with Clear Plastic Mask/Banditos. Wow. Serious Party. Thanks to all for the support. We had a real good time. I’m working on a sick slide show of the wedding, arm wrestling, basement jams, bar fights, fireworks, chicken duels, and
Here’s whats coming up next. We’re playing East nashville underground next weekend. There’s some other rad groups involved and it’s pretty cheap. After that we’re super stoked to party with the wonderful Big Freedia
at the Exit/In. Then we head up to Indiana for the Pinostock Music festival which should be a real trip. All the people up there are righteous.
We then kick of our fall tour with the Alabama Shakes by playing Live on the Green here in Nashville. Last year at live on the Green I snuck into the Mayor’s private party and drank and ate like a god in a mighty tower. Planning to do the same this year.

Show Tomorrow @ the High Watt w/ The Ettes and Denny and the Jets
Be sure to come out tomorrow for this show. Both The Ettes and Denny and the Jets are bitchN. Think you can get pre-sale tickets today at Grimey’s and the Groove for $7 or $9 or something. Also were about to announce the dates for our end of summer tour with some real special guest.
And if you haven’t been Jamming the Black Tooth Summer Mix “A No No” you should
Wow. March has been pretty cool. The 10 days with Chrome Pony was great and Austin was great. We got to officially start working on a new album while on the way back. We stopped in Celeste, Texas where Matt’s from and crashed with his parents and partied. We set up in a super rad garage around old car/boats from the 50’s, and tracked for a couple days. It’s sounding prrrretty good. The album, which in currently unnamed, is going to be a double disc album with a more lucid form. I’m hoping to have it finished mid-summer so I can blast it through my headphones on my Jet-ski. There’s also some videos in the works and some other cool stuff. Thanks everyone that helped us out this last month (floors, food, drinks, laughs). We’re playing Record Store Day at the Groove and some other shows too. I’ll post those tomorrow or something. Peace.
