We are only playing a few shows this summer. Tomorrow night, we’ll be playing a Say-10 Records showcase in Fairfax, VA. On June 15th we’ll be in Philly, June 22nd in Brooklyn, and on July 13th we will be playing a show in New Brunswick. More details will be posted shortly. Any current info can be found on our tour page or simply “Like” us on Facebook. The rest of our summer will be spent writing our new record. As of now, we’re beginning to map out our Mid-West tour for September 7th-15th. If you’d like to help us with a date, please e-mail aspigasound at yahoo.com
Thanks to Lemuria, Noun, and everyone at Maxwell’s for having us two weeks ago. It’s sad to see Maxwell’s shutting its doors, but we are thrilled to have been able to play such a legendary venue before it closes. Also, big ups to everyone at 209 Murray for throwing a wicked house show. Oddly enough, Delaware is becoming one of our favorite places to play.
Here is a new review of “Every Last Piece.” It’s great to continue to see this album getting reviewed months after its release. On top of that, all of the positive support has been so inspiring. Thank you. You can read the new review here.
Due to winter storm, Nemo, we had to cancel a few North East dates that we had booked. We promise to reschedule our shows in Lowell, MA and Purchase, NY in the Spring. Heartwell will make the trip with us. For now, we have three dates at the end of the month. Us and Heartwell will be in Richmond, Virginia Beach, and Washington D.C. from February 22nd-24th. All of the info is in our tour dates page. We’re working on confirming more dates for the month of March. In April and May, we will be playing a few music festivals. All of those details are posted with links to passes to each fest. Be sure to get your passes now because they will go fast. On March 3rd, we’re going to begin working on our first music video in support of “Every Last Piece”. Exciting!
More album reviews continue to pop-up online. Seriously, some extremely kind words have been written about our new record and it makes us very proud. If you have taken the time to listen to “Every Last Piece” and write a review on it, thank you. We’d also like to thank Thomas at Paper + Plastick for continuing to work on the PR campaign for our album. Check out these three most recent reviews.

A few weeks ago, we performed a live studio session for The Key at XPN in Philadelphia, PA. The session was posted online today. The set includes five tracks the covers the discography of the band. It’s being hosted as a free stream and download. The Key and XPN have been very kind to us over the last few years and we really appreciate them inviting us to be a part of this series. Big thanks to John V. for putting this together. Now go enjoy the songs!
Since the release of our record, Every Last Piece, album reviews have slowly been appearing on various websites. I’ve compiled a list of the reviews that have been posted so far. You can check them out below. The response has been fantastic. Thank you for the support!

“Users” can be heard here.
You can pre-order “Every Last Piece” from Paper + Plastick right here. The vinyl will be available on three different colors. The vinyl pre-orders will not ship until mid-December.

We got home from tour last week. As always, it was an absolute pleasure to be on the road with our best friends, Broadcaster. Thanks to everyone that made it out to a show or helped us with a place to stay. It means the world to us. While we were on tour, we got some pretty good news. We were added to four dates of the “Paper + Plastered” Tour featuring The Ataris and Red City Radio! We join the tour on Thursday, Oct. 4th in Philadelphia, PA. The shows that we will be on include Philadelphia, Baltimore, Brooklyn, and Asbury Park. I just updated the tour section with all of the information regarding the shows. You can also purchase advance tickets by clicking on the “Advance Tickets” link underneath each show. See you at the shows!
It’s been a slow yet, busy summer. Our tour in September is coming together nicely. We’re two dates shy of having the entire tour booked. If you can help us out with a show, please get in touch.
