This month’s newsletter is packed full of our happenings, including new recorded music available worldwide, upcoming US tour dates, and more! Read on below, or click here to read the November newsletter in its entirety.


Howdy friends,

After a festival-packed summer, traveling across North America with Jack White and jetting to Europe in October, we’re looking forward to some quality time back home with our loved ones this holiday season…but not before we spend some quality time in the studio and hit a few more US cities in the next month!

Making Progress in the Studio…

Since the release of Middle of Everywhere, we’ve been working on new material and making steady progress on a full-length studio album you can expect in 2013! Many of these songs have been debuted on the road, but last week we hunkered down and spent some time in the studio. We’re incredibly excited about these new tunes, and we can’t wait to get them to y’all in record form…stay tuned for more updates and sneak previews coming your way soon!

 Wrapping up 2012 with US Tour Dates in November and December
We’re heading east in just a few short days…our friends The Dirt Daubers will join us for shows on November 15 and 16, where we’ll be laying down tunes at The Grey Eagle (Asheville, NC) and Berkeley Cafe (Raleigh, NC), respectively. Then we’re heading on over to Charlotte, NC where we’ll play The Evening Muse on November 17 before skipping down to Atlanta for a gig at The Five Spot on November 18!
Come December, we’ll be breezing through the upper Midwest. You can catch us in Chicago on December 6 (Schubas), Milwaukee on December 7 (The Hotel Foster) and Stoughton, WI on December 8 (Stoughton Opera House). We’ll make one last pit stop in Louisville, KY (Headliner’s Music Hall) on December 14 before heading home for some holiday R&R time.
Making More Waves on Public Radio…
This fall we had the opportunity to take part in two excellent public radio shows. The first was witheTown, a non-profit organization with a focus on sustainability awareness and civic empowerment. We were invited for a live session this fall which was syndicated through NPR and public radio stations all across the globe! For those who missed the broadcast, you can access a free podcast of the program by following this link. Additionally, there are several videos from our eTown session here!
We were also recorded for the NPR-syndicated Mountain Stage radio show at the Paramount Theatrein Bristol, Tennesse! Wanda Jackson, Connie Smith and JD McPherson also took part in the program…it was quite the night, and we hope you had a chance to tune in and listen to the broadcast on one of the many local affiliates worldwide. In case you couldn’t catch it, you can stream the broadcast here!
New Years Eve at the Ryman

Don’t worry folks, we won’t be out of sight for ALL the holidays this winter…as a matter of fact, we’ll be getting down in a big way to ring in the New Year! This New Year’s Eve we’re joining Old Crow Medicine Show for a show at the Ryman Auditoriumin Nashville, Tennessee.

We were honored to play on Jools Holland’s televised program ‘Hootenanny’ for last year’s New Years Eve, but between the rich history of the Ryman and the musical prowess of Old Crow, ringing in 2013 is sure to be a riot as well!

Reflections on our European Tour

This past October, we had the pleasure of touring through the Western parts of Europe. We visited France for the very first time, and thoroughly enjoyed our sets in Nancy and Paris! Of course it was great to tread through England, Scotland, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands again as well. We truly appreciate the enthusiasm of our fans in these regions, so thanks to all who came out and made for an undeniably lively time abroad!

We had a bit of down time in Dublin and a couple of us had the chance to get a cut and shave at the fabulously classic Waldorf Barbershop. See the full newsletter for some photos from our stop at the Waldorf!

…and a New Record For Sale Online!

We recently released a new album of all live material, Live in Holland, which is now available for sale worldwide, includingour website’s online store.

The tracks were all taken from one live show, when we played Amsterdam’s Paradiso in the spring of this year…what a great time that was–we’re glad it’s captured on record and we hope you enjoy it!

Well, that about wraps up what’s happening in our world this month. Thanks so much for your interest in and support of what we do, for coming out to shows and for being just about the best darn fans we could ask for. Don’t forget you can always check our official website, Facebook page or Twitter for the most up-to-date news.

And heads up–we’re in the midst of adding more shows in 2013 to our schedule! To keep tabs on the new additions, visit our tour dates page on, or subscribe to our new handy-dandytour date RSS feed.
