The Bear of Bad News! Now on Kickstarter!

 

Elizabeth has just launched her first Kickstarter art project!  It's for an adult coloring book called "The Bear of Bad News".  It's of a bear giving you terrible news.  It's wonderful, funny, dark, and awesome.  If you'd like to check it out, just click here.

 

Thanks!  We're still on tour, by the way, and will be for a few weeks.  Make sure you're up to date on our tour schedule so you can see if we're coming to a place near you.  See you on the road!

 

We won 3 more Whalies!

 

So the great New London music community holds a wonderfully self-indulgent and self-aware local awards show every year called the Whalies.  The event was last night, and we won three awards: "Best Pop Act", "Best Pop Song" (for our track "Run"), and "Pop Album of the Year".  They sadly didn't have a "Best Painter" award, but you know that if they did Elizabeth would have scooped that right up.  Here's us with our awards at the show last night.

And as you may have noticed, Elizabeth and I dress up as each other.  Our cut out faces look forward to haunting your dreams forever.

Big thanks to everyone who has given us a shot, whatever kind of shot that may be.  And we feel like we're just getting started....

Playing in Buffalo, NY (nearly) every Tuesday in May!

 

Happy Star Wars day, everyone!  May the fourth be with you.

Now that all the important news has been settled, we wanted to let you know a few things.  

1) Last night was our first weekly residency show at Merge in Buffalo, NY.  We have three more over the next few weeks, so please come out and/or tell your friends/family/coworkers to do the same.

2) Last night we started at 7, but we have decided to move up the rest of the weeks to 8.  So the shows will now be from 8 to 10 instead of 7 to 9.  Make note!

3) Here is Elizabeth's awesome painting from last night.  It's kind of hard to tell in this picture, but something out the blue made this one feel fairly fresh and new.  Can't quite explain it but take a look for yourself.

 

In the meantime, our lives in Buffalo this month have so far been great.  We're both focusing on the change of environment to not only try to relax a bit, but also to focus hard on producing art.  Elizabeth is working on a lot of personal projects, and I'm trying to write something on the piano every day.  A lot of it will probably suck, but I've found that if I can train/force myself to be creative every day, it's far easier to be creative overall.  Kind of like working out or something.  Either way, hopefully this month will produce many new songs that will become your new PV favorites.

 

We'll be in Buffalo, NY for a little while....

 

Long story short: Elizabeth and I will be living in Buffalo, NY for the month of May!  We're not moving away from CT, but we'll just be living in a community art house for a month as a fun creative experiment.  Hopefully, a lot of new music and art will be made in that time.  While that happens, we're actually going to be playing a weekly show at Merge in downtown Buffalo!  Every Tuesday in May we'll be playing with a different local musician.  Plus, we have a few other local Western New York dates.  

AND, we're going to be on tour for the next couple weeks!  Here are all our upcoming dates:

 

April 1 - Harrisburg, PA - Midtown Scholars    8 PM

April 2 - Coal Center, PA - Cook and Maid    7 PM

April 4 - Silver Springs, MD - Mighty Monday at Abyssinia      9 PM

April 5 - Lock Haven, PA - Avenue 209    7 PM

April 6 - Frostburg, MD - Dante's     10 PM

April 7 - Roanoke, VA - The Leftovers   6 PM

April 8 - Blacksburg, VA - Rock The Block Festival

April 11 - Flemington, NJ - Flemington DIY    7 PM

April 30 - Buffalo, NY - 440 Plymouth    8 PM

May 3 - Buffalo, NY - Merge w/ Wes Aikins  7 PM!  WEEKLY RESIDENCY SHOW!

May 10 - Buffalo, NY - Merge w/ Jon Herr   7 PM!  WEEKLY RESIDENCY SHOW!

May 13 - Rochester, NY - Boulder Coffee (100 Alexander location)   8 PM

May 17 - Buffalo, NY - Merge w/ Leroy Townes   7 PM!    WEEKLY RESIDENCY SHOW!

May 21 - Jamestown, NY - Mojo's

May 24 - Buffalo, NY - Merge w/ Erica Wolfling   7 PM!   WEEKLY RESIDENCY SHOW!

 

And starting TODAY, Elizabeth has an art gallery up on the Merge walls for all of April!  The paintings will be taken down in early May, but if you're in the Buffalo area sometime in April, head to Merge and check out the 25+ pieces Elizabeth made for the event.  It's quite an awesome collection, and Merge is a fantastic place, so it would be an awesome date night (hint hint).

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH

 

So we got back from 7 weeks out on the road this last Sunday.  We are very happy to be home.  However, we have plenty of dates still coming up, as well as plenty of projects here at home to keep us busy.  Elizabeth is currently making some paintings for a gallery show of hers coming up in Buffalo, NY at Merge (go there in April to see it!), and I'm booking our summer tour, taking care of little details around the house, and trying to make another board game.  All the while trying to catch up on sleep we missed in the past couple months.  The overall headline for us, though, is "Life is good".  

The "We Are A Band Worth Your Time" tour was most certainly our best tour to date.  Every tour seems to be like that.  When we started, I felt like good shows happened 40% or 50% of the time.  Now, I feel like they're 75% or 80% of the time.  We saw many great fans, old and new alike, and even had one girl fly from Dallas to Denver JUST TO SEE US.  She didn't even have any friends in Denver to stay with.  I still can't wrap my head around that, but we're sure glad she came.  Her, as well as all of you would have seen us at some point or another, have been unbelievably encouraging.  As with any creative pursuit, it's very easy to get down on yourself and think what you do is meaningless.  Elizabeth and I often feel that way.  But it sure helps us find the drive to keep going due to you all.  There is no amount of words I can type or say that would convey how grateful we feel to you.  I hope you'll continue to stay on the PV train as long as it goes.

All that said, we are very far from ever being done.  We have a lot of shows coming up in April and May (click here to check them out!), and in June/July we plan on doing another 4 or 5 week one, probably to the Pacific Northwest and back, and will likely hit a lot of the same places we just hit on this tour.  Keep an eye out for that.  We'll announce specifics as it gets closer. 

Lastly, I wrote a new "PV Recommends" article today about our good friend Jordan in Gaffer Project.  You can read that right here.  Or just listen to this:

 

 

 

Elizabeth's favorite painting

 

Elizabeth did this painting in Milwaukee, WI the other night.  She told me right afterwards that she feels it is the best painting she's ever done on stage, and her favorite.  I thought that was an excuse enough to share it with you.  I recommend you make it your desktop background.

Just a little trek down to VA and back.  Always a good time.  

This current tour we're still on, the "We Are A Band Worth Your Time" tour, is going great.  Bum shows here and there, but overall, PV fans have been coming out, telling friends, and generally spreading the word.  This is so wonderful and welcoming.  Thank you all so much for helping out our little outfit.  I hope we're staying good and entertaining enough for you to continue doing so.  

 

Waffles with Pocket Vinyl

 

Our good friend Jordan of the Gaffer Project (who you really should be listening to) interviewed us while eating at the Waffle House.  Enjoy us eating and answering Jordan's questions.  Do you also think you sound weird when you talk on a video?  We both do.  Enjoy!

 

Happy New Year!

 

I just wanted to let you know that 2016 is going to be a big year for us.  We've got a few great things planned for this year that will reveal themselves to you all overtime.  

But for right now, Happy New Year!  I hope 2016 is great for you as well.  We're starting off the year hard with a 7 week tour heading all over the country, and hitting Louisiana and Colorado for the first time!  Woo!  All our tour dates are right here.  

See you on that road. 

 

The "We are a band worth your time" Tour announced!

 

Merry Christmas!  We've added about 7 weeks of tour dates this coming Jan. 21 through March 12!  Woo!  They're over on the tour page!  Click here to go there now!

Also, Elizabeth illustrated the 12 days of Christmas.  Check this sweet thing out:

 

Thank you

 

Thank you for liking our band. Thank you for coming to shows. Thank you for listening to our music. Thank you for enjoying our paintings. Thank you for telling us your own stories. Thank you for speaking with us before and after concerts. Thank you for sharing your art with us. Thank you for wanting to stay in touch with what we're doing. Thank you for sharing what we do with people you know. Thank you for believing we are worth you time. Thank you for being a kind person to us. Thank you for accepting us as who we are. Thank you for writing us messages of how you've enjoyed what we do. Thank you for coming out to a show for a second or third time. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I feel an enormous amount of humility, thankfulness, love, and gratitude this morning towards you all for supporting what we do. Just wanted to share it with you all. Thank you.

(I posted this on FB this morning, but figured it needed to be posted here as well.  Take love)

 

PV recommends Leroy Townes

 

Hey folks, so we play with a lot of bands that are criminally unknown.  We know more than anyone how tough it is to get people to listen to your music.  So in an effort to help share the love, about once a month or so, I'm going to write a post about a band we love and think you should listen to.

First up: Leroy Townes.  Head to the article and give a read/listen.  Or click the tab to your upper right.

I hope you enjoy.  Music is such a pleasure to play and share.

 

Elizabeth's Art Emporium!

 

I hope you're all enjoying the nice autumn weather.  Elizabeth and I are cold weather people, so we're loving it.  Plus, "Tin" is sort of a cold weather album (in my mind) so I hope that's soundtracking your fall nicely. 

Anyway, we have a bunch of shows happening all over New England for the rest of the year, so check our tour dates page for the details on those.

Also, Elizabeth has been hard at working getting her Etsy shop together.  I highly HIGHLY recommend you check it out.  There you can get paintings, socks, and prints (among other trinkets)....all of which would be perfect as a gift for someone for the upcoming holiday season.  Plus, you'd get that wonderful satisfaction that your money is going directly to the lil' local folks. 

Thanks everyone!  Stay warm and Happy Halloween!

 

500th show!

 

So last night, on Sept. 27 2015, we played in Mac's Bar in Lansing, MI.  It was our 500th show!  I must admit, that sounds more impressive than it feels.  We kind of feel like we still just started, but 500 sure is a lot of paintings.  I recommend you head to our facebook page to flip through some of them and see how far we've come.  

But for now, I'll just say: Hooray!  500 shows!  Here's to 5000 more.  *clink*

 

Pockumentary: The Making of "Tin"

 

So the wonderful Brad Bensko (who produced the record) and I sat down together and made a couple podcasts about how we made "Tin".  If you'd like to get deep into the nuts and bolts of the new album, click here and take a listen.

I recommend saving it for a long drive or something.  Hope you enjoy.

 

"Tin" is out! Go get it now!

 

We are excited.

So "Tin" is now out in the wild and garnering it's own identity in the minds of the public.  It is no longer in our control.  We strongly encourage you to go get a copy for yourself.  Here's are some of the main spots:

iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/tin/id1033729491

Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/67WHQFUeYN94u5nNppgrWx

Bandcamp: https://pocketvinyl.bandcamp.com/album/tin

 

If you want to get the record on vinyl, go here.  You can also go here to get it on CD.  

So you use some other digital music outlet/store?  Chances are that "Tin" is also available there as well.  

Or you can just come get a copy from us directly at a show, of which many are happening soon.

Enjoy the record.  See you on the road.

 

 

Listening party in New London, CT!

 

So on September 8, the day that "Tin" is fully released into the world, we're going to be having a listening party at the Telegraph Record Store in New London, CT at 6 PM!  So if you want to BYOB, a couple friends, and come listen to a record with a bunch of fellow strangers/PV fans, then do so!  We'll have copies of the album available as well.

The Telegraph is actually the brick and mortar home base of our record label "Telegraph Recording Co."  It's an honor that we've been able to put out our last few records with those good people.  We have many other fantastic label mates, including Daphne Lee Martin, Violent Mae, Elison Jackson, among many other future greats.  

Elizabeth is sadly up in Canada right now on business, so she won't be there, but I (Eric) shall be.  So come keep me company and listen to our new art.  

 

It's Elizabeth's birthday! AND "Tin" is available for pre-order now!

 

Happy Birthday Elizabeth!  You are my favorite human being.

I recommend you go to her art page and give her some birthday love.

Less importantly, you can now pre-order "Tin" from our bandcamp page!  AND you can hear the first 3 songs.  If you preorder anything, you'll even be able to DOWNLOAD those first three songs right now!  Sweet!  Go do that please!  Once Sept. 8 comes, you'll get the whole album.

"Run" to your computer to watch our new video

 

"Run" is the first track from "Tin" and, we believe, opens up the album well.  We're really proud about how it all came out, and I hope this music video makes you feel slightly uncomfortable for reasons you can't quite articulate.  Enjoy!

 

"Tomorrow" Music Video!

 

New song.  New video.  This is the closing track off "Tin" and it's about Robin Williams and depression in general.  I feel very proud about how it came out.  Special thanks to Isaac from the band Phonosynthesis!

Enjoy:

 

"Tin" is coming...

 

Music videos.......song releases.......podcasts.......

TIN IS COMING

 

Summer tour dates added!

 

Short update today: I just posted a bunch of tour dates for the summer.  We may add a few more yet, but we're taking a bit of a rest from the big tours, gearing up for a lot of those come the fall/winter/spring in support of "Tin", which will get released in September.

But for now, go check out our tour dates and see if we're coming near you!  If we are, please come. 

 

Home!

 

HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOME!

The tour is finished, you guys.

That was a fantastic tour.

We're exhausted, but also excited.  

Taking a sort of break, just playing mostly Northeastern shows for the summer.  

Then we'll release "Tin", our 4th album.

And THEN, we'll hit the road endlessly again.

Life is wonderful.  Thank you all.

 

Tour update! On our way back east...

 

Hey everyone, 

I'm writing to you from Butte, MT where we're playing at the Venus Rising Espresso House in just a few hours.  This tour has been absolutely wonderful.  Thank you to everyone who has come to see us, purposefully or accidentally.  We've been feeling so blessed by all of you.  It seems like nearly every night is a new adventure, which is the best kind of tour to have.  We're going to see Yellowstone over this Easter weekend.  Celebrate the holiday in what may be the closest to "God's country" as we could ever get.  Elizabeth has never seen a Buffalo, so she is more than excited for the herds.

"Tin" is currently being mastered, and we'll send it off to the presses before the end of the month.  With the long turn around on vinyl, hopefully we'll get them back by for an August release, but September at the latest.  We always seems to release albums in the fall.  Weird.  Elizabeth has been telling me that she thinks this new album is our best yet, and most unique.  Hopefully the first in a long line of albums that fit those descriptions.

Here's a pic of us at the Grand Canyon a few weeks ago.  I recommend all of you go on tour sometime in your life, if nothing else than just to see all the crazy landscapes, ecosystems, climates, and natural beauty this country has to offer.  

We still have a few weeks to go until we get back home, so check out our tour dates if you live in a northern state between MT and CT, and we'll probably be coming near you.  Thanks again everyone!

 

Official (sort of) music video for "Death Anxiety"!

 

So we played at Two Tone Art Gallery in Murfreesboro, TN a few weeks ago, and the wonderful man/fan/friend Matt Marson asked if he could film the performance.  Then asked if Elizabeth could wear a camera on her head.  We of course said yes, and he made this fantastic video of the entire show.  We never had any ideas for a "Death Anxiety" music video, so this one will pretty much be it as far as we're concerned.  Thank you so much, Matt!

Matt does lots of fantastic videography work.  Check his stuff out here!

 

Tour starts today!

 

And we're off!  Today marks the start of our tour across the nation!  Come out and see us!

Listen to the new song "Run"

 

Hey everyone, I don't really know what to say other than we are incredibly proud of this un-finished, un-mastered song.  We just wanted to share it.

 

 

 

We're getting close to the end of the KS campaign as well as the end of the funding!  We're so close!  If you love the song, please help back the project and spread it around!  

 

Puppet Vinyl! Buttercup Music Video!

 

Hey guys,

We've got some great videos for you that we've uploaded recently.  First is a new little series we're starting to help promote the Kickstarter campaign for "Tin" (which if you haven't backed yet, you totally should).  It's called "Puppet Vinyl" and is better seen than described:

 

Secondly, Elizabeth hand-animated over 250 pieces for a 1 minute video for the tiny Death Anxiety nugget "The Buttercup (Little Tea Leaf)".  It's our first fully animated video, and looks wonderful:

 

Once again, please go support our Kickstarter!  We're nearly halfway there and still have 18 days to go.  Do it and gets tons of great stuff!

 

Announcing "Tin", our 4th album

 

Ladies and gentlemen, it is with a wide smile we announce our 4th upcoming album "Tin".  Check out this cover art (by Elizabeth, of course):

We are beyond excited about this.  We're currently in the studio working on it now, and we're hoping we can help rally you guys to help us fund it.  We've launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise money for recording and vinyl duplication.  This will be the first Pocket Vinyl album to appear on a 12" record (hopefully).

Click here to go to the KS campaign now.
