Lovely peeps, thank you to everyone who came out on our North American tour! We had such a fabulous time, played some wonderful venues, saw so many exciting cities we'd not visited before and made many new friends. Can't believe two months of shows are behind us already- you know they've been great times when they fly by!
You may remember some of the new visuals we had in the show. Lots of folks have been asking me to put them online, so here are two new pieces!
Dig Your Own Hole

Seven Hours With a Backseat Driver
