Well, what can I say, it was a BLAST to be on the Rock Boat last week. We got to catch up with some old friends and make some new ones, rock some B-ball, battleshots and headphone disco and did one heck of a lot of partying in between it all. If there’s anyone on there that was seeing us for the first time, please follow us on our mailing list or socials for when we might be in an area near you again. We’d love to see any and all of y’all again sometime. Until then, Cheers! JA
Hey folks, A bit of bad news, the promoter in Vienna, VA has postponed all of this weekend’s shows at Jammin’ Java on account of this mega storm that is heading their way. We are deeply disappointed to not be able to play for you guys this weekend but this one is truly out of our hands as you can’t negotiate with the great Mother Nature. We will be back to make up this date so stay tuned. For now, we play Philly and then drive south. – The Trews
For those wishing to refund their tickets please contact the outlet where they purchased the ticket or go to the club directly.
This Deluxe ReIssue will feature 4 songs pulled from the same performances at Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto in January 2009 that were previously unavailable on the original release or it’s accompanying DVD. These live bonus performances are “Every Inambition”, “Makin’ Sunshine”, “No Time For Later” and “Not Ready To Go”. The Deluxe Re-Issued CD has been digitally re-mastered in it’s entirety. Get it HERE!
We’re excited to announce that we’ll be hitting the road in the US en route to, and on the way back from, The Rock Boat in January/February of next year. We left some of our American fans hanging this past summer when we were forced to cancel some shows due to some hassles we had at immigration but that’s all been cleared up now and we’re pumped and ready to go. See a full list of these US club dates listed below.
Also, as some of you may have already heard, we are heading out on a short acoustic tour of select theatres across Canada in February/March directly following our American run.
In support of this outing we have decided to re-issue our 2009 live acoustic release “Friends and Total Strangers“.
This Deluxe Re-Issue will feature 4 songs pulled from the same performances at Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto in January of ’09 that were previously unavailable on the original release or it’s accompanying DVD.
These live bonus performances are “Every Inambition”, “Makin’ Sunshine”, “No Time For Later” and “Not Ready To Go”.
We are also making “Friends and Total Strangers” available on vinyl for the very first time. This will be a double vinyl LP and can be purchased at our acoustic shows or ordered online from our website, available early 2016.
The deluxe reissued CD and vinyl have both been digitally re-mastered in their entirety. And to get you in the mood for this upcoming acoustic run, we are making the re-issue available FRIDAY, Nov. 27th!! so happy listening and enjoy!
We are really looking forward to this acoustic tour. There’s been a new album since we last toured acoustically ( 2014′s The Trews ) and we’ve been doing a lot of writing lately so there’s plenty of new material to draw on when compiling the set lists. It’s always a great way for us to shake things up.
We’re also very excited to announce that Rich Robinson, formerly of the Black Crowes, will be joining us solo acoustic for 3 shows out west, in Calgary and two nights in Sherwood Park, AB (Edmonton area). We are very big fans of Rich’s solo work and are thrilled to have him on the bill with us. We did a little collaborating with Rich on the “…thank you and I’m sorry” EP a couple years back and it will be great to play with him again. So check out the dates below, give the “FATS” re-issue a spin or two, and we’ll see you out on the road in the new year.
