new album, new music video, new logos, new everything

confession: we’ve been so busy we haven’t had a chance to update you on ALL THE NEW THINGS.

First: OUR NEW ALBUM. we’re stoked to share with you our fourth album, BOOMERANG KIDS: recorded in the 100+ year old Quyon church by Mike Dubue, mastered by Grammy-nominated mastering engineer Phil Shaw Bova, album design by Kyla Hidalgo, album photography by Mailyne Morena.

We’ll be releasing the record at our album release party on March 30 at Black Squirrel Books! This special show will feature live appearances by guest musicians Trevor Pritchard and Jared Davidson on french horn & clarinet respectively (they’re also on the record!). Our pals Salmon Ella will be opening for us.

Can’t wait until March 30 for the album? Our single Pyongyang is not only out for your listening pleasure, but we’ve also released the new music video for it, directed by SDC Video and featuring more puppets from our buddy and puppetry artist Grant Harding. (I told you we were busy!)

Kyla also designed a new logo for our band, so keep an eye out for our new t-shirts! (you can also order our t-shirts anytime here)


We did another band photoshoot with Mailyne Morena who produced some stunning work.

Our bassist Dannik HAD A BABY.
