New Preston, CT. It's one of those towns with lots of trees. Some say it's where the bears hang out, although it was not the location for the Disney IMAX film Bears that premiered on Earth Day 2014. However, New Preston was the spot where we first heard the demo for what is now our new song, "Raising the Skate," which premiered on The Fader yesterday.

Just wanna shout a "hell yeah" to whoever decided to name the URL I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss. If you'd like to learn more on this topic, why not try your local library? Or check out these informative suggestions:

So today we're taking a quick break from our 2014 Tour Scrapbook to let you know how pumped we are that "Raising the Skate" is finally out there. We messed around with it a few times on our August tour, right after we premiered a very sloppy and way-too-fast version at Golden Tea House in Philadelphia (at a show we'll probably be writing about on the next page of tour journal.)

And speaking of tour, a new round of shows just got announced. This is the longest we've gone without travelling for a while. We're looking forward to burrito hunting with our buds from Krill, Mitski, Alex G, Two Inch Astronaut, Broken Water and Palehound, with more bands to be announced soon!
