So we’ve spoke about this in dribs and drabs but now everything is official and announced, here’s a story about us and our sweet new American parents
All our grievances about not being famous enough in the US can now be directed towards LAME-O RECORDS of Philadelphia. No srs, it’s a privilege to be the first UK band on their label but it feels like a natural extension of how much Philladelphia makes us feel at home when we’re there. Ahhhhh♡♥♡♥♡♥♡. Modern Baseball and The Weaks and Johnny Foreigner package tour plz.
Here are some items to celebrate this joyous metaphorical homecoming:
(title as decided as the most useless thing you can ever say to anyone) If yr a Real Fan then this is prolly nothing new, but our first Lame-o release is a handpicked primer of past material for YCDB. It’s also on Spotify and itunes US and UK if you really don’t want us to get paid.
Click it to viddy ruin porn, relationship breakdown and our show at the borderline a few months ago. A minor motion picture, written and made by our awesome and talented friends from Moral Hangover .THANKS GUYS♥♥♥
(Also appearing on Brooklyn Vegan. Brooklyn Vegan, hipsters us..)

Well this was inevitable.
We’re planning to come back to South Africa in October. Tourourarma.
Last time we came, in 2010, we had our hearts totally melted. We’ve played basements, houses and reclaimed bunkers around the world and still that small run of gigs is what we talk about when people ask us the most punk shows we’ve done. There’s this amazingly uncynical and techsavvy and colourful generation that have pretty much set up their own microcosm of the entertainment business,and the practical result of that was a bunch of shows/clubs/media things that felt like a week long community party.
It was incredible and so we want to come do it again and better. We’ll put dates up soon but in the meantime we have a bunch of plans that may or may not be possible. So if you’re Safrican and want to get on board in any way, then get in touch with us.
any arts & crafts peeps/video makers/artists/writers/musicians/self facilitating media nodes and local businesses, anyone that wants to be involved is welcome. Obvs we’re in this to improve our
holiday tour but if there was ever a place where we could pull off this ideal of everyone whose into our shit getting a platform for their own shit then this is for sure the place.
We’d also like some form of
street team advance ghost patrol to flyer for each show and stick up posters etc, if you volunteer then you’ll get gls and some cool things will happen..
..and that’s pretty much all we can say till we assemble everyone and know how many of our grand plans we can practically achieve. Do any of you own a helicopter?
If yr interested in being a part of whatever rolling carnival this is going to turn into, mail email@example.com with where you are and what you do and we’ll be in touch.
SEE YOU SOON ZOMG ITS HAPPENING xoxo
