Hey my dear dear fans. I regret to announce that we are canceling the four live dates we had planned for the end of November, in Duluth (11/27) Minneapolis (11/28) Madison (11/29) and Chicago (12/1). I feel sad that we are having to cancel them, but we really do need to. The reasons are personal and also not at all interesting, so I’m not going to explain - sorry about that. They involve family issues combined with work issues and logistical issues. It’s a drag to cancel shows but running the independent organization that is a touring band is a complicated endeavor and sometimes that’s the way it goes. But I do know that we will (god willing) return to these delightful cities and make it up to you. Our apologies and blessings - thank you all for caring about our band, and see you next time. -Ezra

I am still proud to be an American. Voting still feels good. I got hope. Peace, peace to far and near

WE PLAY AT WARSAW IN BROOKLYN TOMORROW NIGHT. Wandering Brooklyn I somehow end up at the corner where my old bandmates lived in 2009 when we moved to New York to “make it.” I was in Crown Heights. Thems was the days. Tomorrow night we wrap up this leg of the tour at Warsaw with heavy hearts and undaunted spirit. I wish everyone a Shabbat Shalom - praying for peace and safety for all people, particularly my own (Jews and queers) this devastating week. See you tomorrow night for our attempt to shine to spite the darkness

To our fans in Massachusetts: Thank you to everyone who came to the Sinclair on Monday night - a truly amazing show, for me, because of the energy you brought to the room. Thanks especially to those of you who signed up to volunteer with the Yes on 3 campaign. It was amazing to have Pippin and Matt and their team tell us about their cause from on- and off-stage. Right now, Massachusetts has a law to protect transgender people from discrimination. But on Tuesday, MA will be voting on whether or not to overturn these protections. Opponents of transgender rights are using fear tactics to strip away equality. We can't let that happen. Trans people like me deserve protection from discrimination like anyone else. This issue threatens queer people’s livelihoods and safety in Massachusetts. It’s also an opportunity to send a message nationwide about what Americans care about. This shit matters. This is about safety and equality for me and so many people I know. Join the movement, and take action in the final week to secure a historic win. Sign up to knock on doors and make phone calls- across the state- at freedomma.org/gotv. Sign up to make reminder calls from home at secure.freedomma.org/page/s/confirms Love y’all. Thanks for an incredible show on Monday. Vote Yes on 3. -Ezra

Tomorrow we return to Toronto. Last night in Columbus was indescribably satisfying. We met Omni at last and they blew us away. Then the people of Columbus bathed us in love and passion. That’s right. We sat in a big bathtub onstage and everyone came up one by one to rub loofahs on each band member. We are a highly experimental band. See you soon Ontario And of course, the upcoming TOUR DATES Sat. Oct. 27 – Toronto, CAN @ Horseshoe Tavern * Mon. Oct. 29 – Cambridge, MA @ The Sinclair * Tue. Oct. 30 – Providence, RI @ Fete Ballroom * Wed. Oct. 31 – Philadelphia, PA @ Underground Arts * Thu.

TWO SHOWS in Chicago on December 1st. One early, one late - they will be very different from one another and you are invited to both. The first one (6:30pm) is open to all ages and will focus on our gentler side -emotional, intimate and “pop” (or at least our version of pop). The great Richard Album will open. The second one (9pm) is 21+ and will be aggressive, wild rocknroll. The marvelous Bunny will open that one. You can come to one show for $15, or stay for both for $22.50 (if you are over 21). It’s going to be an amazing night and I hope you can make it. I love being in this band. Tickets at subt dot net

More shows in North America! Clustering around the twin occult festivals known as Halloween and Election Day! We are all scared! Of many things! And so we comfort ourselves with witches. Come see our band passionately vomit our hates and joys onto a stage near you. Will we be adorned in terrifying Halloween costumes? Will Ezra dress up like a cis-hetero male? Will there be blood? Do I drink your milkshake? Will the cultural references be topical? Or will we continue to cover songs from the nineties? . Seriously: it is so cathartic in times like these to play shows like these with audiences like you. Come see us and bring whatever spirits need exorcising. . Animation by Du Blonde - forever in our corner, animating our bodily mutations - and also with a new single out now (it's called "Buddy") and a new record coming out soon so look her up!

Today’s the last day to request an absentee ballot in Rhode Island. These are all the cutoff dates. I’ve voted absentee many times, being constantly on tour. It’s easy. Get an absentee ballot now and use the privilege of voting to make American life better. I’m proud to be a huge nerd about this. ....

Holy shit the first single from the new @du.blonde album came out! I have been waiting for this day. “Buddy” is the name of the song and “Lung Bread for Daddy” is the name of the record (great title). I admire Beth so much as an artist and I feel honored to call them my friend. You should go download their new song and preorder their record. I have been lucky enough to hear much of it in advance and I can tell you these new songs of theirs are brilliant and they are one of my favorite songwriters.

Voter registration this Saturday for Idaho, North Carolina, New York and Oklahoma. Go to vote.org to register; it’s very fast. If you’ve been at any of my shows this year you’ve probably heard me blabbering about this. That’s because I care about it a lot. I’d rather you do this than buy my music. You could also do both things.

I know some of y’all know and some of y’all don’t but WE ARE A REALLY GOOD LIVE BAND. And we are playing a bunch of shows in North America and you deserve a night of passionate music. You’ve been working so hard. TREAT YOURSELF TO SOME CULTURE YOU PHILISTINE.

It’s hard to even talk about Tuesday night in London, the end of our tour and a true high point. I feel so much: so supported by this whole world of friends and strangers. So much in full bloom as a band and as performers. This relationship between artists and audience is a strange one sometimes, but Tuesday night was that relationship at its best. So much love in the room. I have so much respect for music fans, how you (we) take a piece of art and actualize it into a beautiful event, make it mean more than it ever would have, by loving it and truly letting ourselves feel it. Fans of music are what make music great, and if our music has any worth, it is our fans that give it that worth. So thank you. Thank you for being there instead of staying home. Thank you for being interested in what I feel compelled to sing and scream and say to you. Thank you for listening, even if you’ve never been to see us in person. Thank you for taking songs we knew could mean something, and making them mean so much. . Photo by @gearygriffin
