Hey Everyone!

We are thrilled to be kicking off Constructive Summer with shows in Jersey City, Philly, Asbury Park and San Francisco coming up. To help celebrate, we thought we’d share some new music. Please enjoy our new songs “The Stove & The Toaster” and “Star 18”. We’ll be playing them at the shows, in case you want to sing along.

These songs were recorded in May at Isokon Studios with Josh Kaufman producing and Dan Goodwin engineering. Stuart Bogie and Dave Nelson added some horns and Annie Nero helped with some backup vox. We are very pleased with the results and hope you are too.

These will be available for the fans here on Bandcamp, and will be on all digital services via Frenchkiss on Friday, July 20.

If you choose to download these two songs, a donation will be made to benefit the K+L Guardian Foundation. ALL monies received from downloads will be transferred to the K+L Guardian Foundation.

The K+L Guardian Foundation was formed to benefit "Jersey" Mike Van Jura's children after he suddenly passed away in November 2012 at only 36 years of age. Jersey Mike was the unofficial leader of The Unified Scene.

Looking forward to Constructive Summer. Limited tickets still available for select shows!

See you soon! Stay Positive!
