Don't forget- the release party for The Blind Eyes' sophomore full-length album is on Saturday, June 11th at Off Broadway! Here's a sneak peek at the cover art, shot by the one and only Douglas Garfield. The album will be for sale for the first time at the show, online and in stores shortly thereafter.

Well, Record Store Day is officially our favorite holiday- second only to Thanksgiving, maybe. If Record Store Day had stuffing, it'd be no contest. We had a great time playing at Euclid Records yesterday for their Sunday edition of RSD. Thanks to everyone who came out, for real, and of course to Euclid for having us. Looking forward to 2012!
An amazing video of us debuting a new tune at the Firebird back in March is online now at Lo-Fi St. Louis! It looks and sounds great- and finally we have video documentation that we are, in fact, capable of debuting a new song live and it not being a complete trainwreck.

A few quick things to fill you all in on. Grab a pencil:
-We are happy to announce our friends The LIVERS will be joining us and Sleepy Kitty at Off Broadway on June 11th for our "With A Bang" record release show! Make sure to bring a few pairs of socks with you, as they're certainly all going to be rocked off, and we don't want your feet to get cold. But we're not the only local band releasing an album this summer.
-There is a brand spankin' new interview with the band in the new issue of Eleven Magazine! It's not online yet, but when it gets up we'll link to it. In the meantime, you can pick up a copy pretty much anywhere, for free.
-We've been nominated for a 2011 Riverfront Times Music Award for "Best Rock Band"! Hope you "rock the vote", so to speak. Get it? Details on voting and the yearly showcase coming soon.
-We're going to be headlining day 2 of Euclid Records' Record Store Day weekend! We'll be playing at 7 pm on Sunday. The whole weekend is filled with incredible bands, including the Bottle Rockets, John Doe & Jill Sobule, the Sights, and tons more . Seriously, incredible. Don't believe us? Check out the schedule. Hope to see you there.
