New Album - BIG DARK LOVE on BloodShot Records and New Kickstarter Campaign

We are excited to announce the pre-order of our new album BIG DARK LOVE. We had such an incredible experience with our last album through Kickstarter that we felt this was the best way to do it. There's a wealth of fun and exciting options this time around from SPECIAL EDITION VINYL to A GORGEOUS ART BOOK to A CONCERT IN A CAVE to PRIVATE SHOWS, ADVENTURES and more! Pre-order here. 


By overwhelming demand, you guys convinced us that this is a much more interesting and effective way to pre-sell an album and we wanted to show you the fun ideas we had. We brought back a few things from the last Kickstarter and also created a bunch of new stuff we thought you'd like.

There were moments of beauty that happened with the release of our last record- generous backers- friends making extraordinary gestures, and overwhelmingly positive reactions from everyone involved. Let's see what happens this time!

The album will come out on officially on Bloodshot Records on February 3rd, 2015! You will get your copy a couple days early. RAD!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are so excited to announce that we will be playing three more shows at the Stanley Hotel January 2, 3, & 4, 2015.  After speaking with many of you at last year's event, we decided this is something that we've got to do again.  It was the most exciting, fulfilling and simply fun event we've ever been privy to in the 15 years we've been in this band.

We know that many of you traveled last year, so you wanted to give you more time to make your plans to come to the party.  Last year the shows sold out in 24 hours, so you'll definitely want to get your tickets early. Get 'em here The ticketing is done directly through our website, and there will be no added ticket fees. You'll receive a commemorative poster at the show.  Last year so many of you dressed up, and we loved that- so we encourage you to do it again if that's what you feel like.

With your support we want to make this an annual event. I'm sure these will be memorable nights and I hope you can attend. If you aren't able to attend the Stanley shows, please note our upcoming tour dates on We look forward to seeing your lovely faces. Thanks again for making unique dreams like this come true.

Thank you,

Adam Turla
