Well, we’re back in Houston now. Our European tour with Papermoons was incredible, and we are so grateful to all of those whose hard work made it possible – especially Tommy Royds of Zine and Not Heard/Vested Interest, our driver, Jez Silcock, as well as Jay Cross, Alex Crowley, and Matt Fidler who all loaned us gear. We played with a lot of really good bands on this tour, but special thanks go to our new best friends Break Character. Check them out on an upcoming tour with our old friends in Plaids, I think?! Thanks also to Laura Cress at Culture and Anarchy. You can check out her interview of us here.
Andres Vicente posted some cool videos from our London show including on of a new song we’ve played on this tour.
We had a blast at SXSW this year. Thanks to Scott at Texas is Funny and Jordan at Better Days will Haunt You for an awesome gig at the Spider House Ballroom. We really dug the mathy tunes of Bearcubbin, and are confident that Vetter Kids are going to blow up 2014. Friday’s Count Your Lucky Stars showcase was like a family reunion. It was a treat to have so many friends and like-minded people all in one room dancing and singing their hearts out. Thanks to Annabel and Mountains for Clouds, who let the love last a little longer by joining us for two dates afterward in Houston and Baton Rouge.
In the next few months we’ll be mostly laying low while we write and record some new tunes. CYLS has sold out of our LP Audible, so a repress is in the works. We have a few copies left, as well as a handful of shirts, available through our store.
