We’re just over three weeks away from our first shows since November and I’m EAGER. This great poster by @cdaura explains it all. Some of these shows are nearly sold out! Also. I would like to note that a number of these shows are ALL AGES - Santa Ana, Los Angeles and Portland to be specific, and Vancouver is 19+. Please come see us we are ever so lonesome. And freaking @panchomorris is playing and he is just fantastic

At last we can announce our little run of UK dates at the end of June! We are so excited to come back to the Kingdom and so excited to show you this amazing poster by the amazing @cdaura ... also coming up, though not on this poster, is the Deer Shed Festival on 26-28 July in Topcliffe, UK in North Yorkshire. So there’s that if you can’t make any of these dates. Or even if you can. These shows are going to be great and we’re going to play you new songs and I’m just feeling really fired up to get back out there and scream

We are pleased to inform you that we’ll be playing All Points East festival in London on Sunday, June 2nd. It’s a delight to be on a list of bands like this with my name in a font this large. We plan to be the best band there. Whether that works out for us or not, it’s going to be a good show. For thus I decree. Tickets here: https://apefe.st/bonivertix

First, we are going on tour on the US west coast, May 1st through May 10th. Dates below; it’s gonna be lit. Second of all. This is a picture of me by @colinlanephoto - who took many a picture of @thestrokes that I drooled over when I was fifteen. It was a thrill to take photos with him. I still think of he face Julian Casablancas made in the liner notes photo of him for Is This It? any way US Tour Dates: 5/1/19 Marty's On Newport Tustin, CA 5/4/19 Teragram Ballroom Los Angeles, CA 5/5/19 Slim's San Francisco, CA 5/7/19 The Wise Hall Vancouver, BC Canada 5/8/19 Tractor Tavern Seattle, WA 5/9/19 Aladdin Theater Portland, OR

Well look at us, headlining a festival. Deer Shed Festival is on July 26-28 up in North Yorkshire. Proud to be on the bill. Come see us if you’re itching for some rocknroll catharsis
Ezra Furman Mar 14, 2019
Solo show TOMORROW (meaning Thursday 3/14) in Santa Rosa at the Arlene Francis Center, ALL AGES, doors at 7pm, Hose Rips and Gender Trash and Supperbloom also on the bill, otherwise just me and you and my guitar and innermost debris in song

A sweaty night in Oregon at the wonderful Pickathon festival... Thanks for having us and I'm excited to be back in the Portland area pretty soon (May 9th at the Aladdin theater). Lots of love to y'all in these ugly times https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIjrX9hPPzI&feature=youtu.be

When we play live shows something HAPPENS TO ME the whole room changes and suddenly I am riding on this thing that soars high above my mundane life. I call this thing rocknroll. There are a lotta names for it. Anyway for me playing shows is an experience of transcendence and I think many of y’all who have been present have felt what I am talking about. We are playing six live shows in early May. It’s been a while since we’ve performed and let me assure you I am going to make these shows count. And new (unreleased unheard) songs? Yes, of course. So you should come. The tickets are going on the fast side and they may sell out so there’s your warning. The shows are on the American west coast. To wit: 5/1/19 Marty's On Newport Tustin, CA 5/4/19 Teragram Ballroom Los Angeles, CA 5/5/19 Slim's San Francisco, CA 5/7/19 The Wise Hall Vancouver, BC Canada 5/8/19 Tractor Tavern Seattle, WA 5/9/19 Aladdin Theater Portland, OR

This is the view from the stage filming the school dance scene in Sex Education (ep. 7). It was FUN and WEIRD to film a tv show. We had to mime playing our songs a gajillion times and all the extras cheered every time which was really nice. I got to wear very cool shoes. It was at a big school gym in Wales. The wardrobe and makeup ladies were really nice to me. Good job everybody

This is me last night at the Largo with Sarah Silverman @sarahkatesilverman, @bethstelling Beth Stelling, Todd Glass @thetoddglassshow and Bobcat Goldthwait @bobcatgoldthwait . Sarah invited me to be a guest on her show there! I played songs instead of telling jokes and people didn’t mind! The brilliant John Mulaney @johnmulaney also performed. Being a lifelong comedy fan it was such a thrill to hang out with and watch these leading lights of our age. They are effing hilarious and were all so nice to me. Amazing venue too (legendary to me). Thanks Largo at the Coronet for the warm welcome. And everyone who was at the show. I feel so incredibly cool today. I even made the professional funny people laugh once or twice ❤️

We at last put out our covers EP “Songs By Others” digitally! It contains our take on 1950s - Little Richard’s “Ready Teddy” 60s - Jackie Wilson’s “(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher” 70s - Melanie’s “The Good Book” 80s - The Replacements’ “Androgynous” 90s - Beck’s “Devils Haircut” 2000s - Arcade Fire’s “Crown of Love” 2010s - LCD Soundsystem’s “I Can Change” So go listen to it! I particularly like our “Crown of Love.” https://open.spotify.com/album/7lpwGiSxIaXLHGVAEYm4FD?si=4rIJiy_kTli1JCaevuE8_w

You might have heard our cover of Melanie's 'Good Book' on Sex Education. Really happy it's being released properly tomorrow (along with some other covers) and you can listen to it via the NME now:

It’s fun to look through old notebooks. I can’t believe I’ve survived my own narcissism this long. Can’t remember the tune to this lyric, if there ever was one. I therefore (in the lazy spirit of the song) challenge y’all to write the melody and make your own version GO

Yes we are at last touring the West Coast! Spend your evening with us instead of looking at your phone. We will provide more satisfying entertainment. That is the EF promise. Happy to note that a lot of these shows are ALL AGES. Come on down and bring your pals. I will be holding nothing back thank you very much.

I’m delighted to announce a run of shows in early May // up the west coast of the USA. We had planned to play most of these places in December but had to cancel due to some scary medical shit about which I’d rather not go into detail. But EVERYTHING TURNED OUT OKAY and I wanna play rock n roll shows and celebrate life and burn the feelings outward. So come do that with us. Tickets are on sale Friday. Get ‘em while they last because we’re on TV now and a bunch of new fans might show up and buy ‘Em all. Which by the way new fans I STRONGLY SUPPORT THAT

“Dye your hair black / Never look back / My past is my business” - @artbrutbandofficial, “My Little Brother” ... my float in the parade of images will be decked out in black this year. It’s my favorite color. Top 50, anyway.

Did you know that our song “Love You So Bad” was heavily unconsciously influenced by “I Wanna Love Him So Bad” by the Jelly Beans (1964)? Neither did I until after our record was released and I put on this (incredible) compilation that I’ve had for years and realized that it had gone into the cement-mixer of my brain in 2016 and mixed with other stuff and out popped Love You So Bad. Weird how songwriting works. Anyway if you know anyone who was in the Jelly Beans please let me know so I can send them some flowers. And look up that song; it’s great

Made some impulsive catty post the other day about new followers from this Netflix show (Sex Education) so let me speak clearly on the matter: I am so delighted you follow me online and so glad if you’ve gotten any enjoyment out of any of my music for any reason. New or old, I melt with joy any time I reflect on the great privilege of having fans. Welcome aboard if you just heard of me, glad you’re here if otherwise. Message to the world: fuck you leave me alone I love you thank you. I like this picture of me.

Pretty excited about this one… My band and I did (pretty much) the entire soundtrack to this show “Sex Education,” coming to Netflix Friday January 11th, a week from today. This is the trailer. A bunch of new original songs, recorded this past summer, as well as old ones that have been previously released on our albums. I am honored that they asked us to do the soundtrack and I am psyched to see the whole show (I’ve just seen some clips they sent me). It was very fun to work on and I’m very grateful to everyone who worked on the show and helped me be a part of it. Oh and the band and I got to be in one of the episodes! Filmed in Wales in August just before doing some touring in Europe. We’re the band at the school dance and we look great. There’s a little glimpse of us at some point in the trailer. Anyway… super excited to watch some TV next weekend for which I MADE THE SOUNDTRACK. Fingers crossed for it to get released as its own soundtrack album but we’ll have to just wait and see on that one. Love to all y’all https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o308rJlWKUc&t=1s
