new t shirrttss...! 100 percent of profits will go to one of my favourite mental health charities: Mind. Mind provides information, support, and guidance to anyone experiencing mental health issues, or to anyone who has a family or friend they may be worried about. the stigma attached to mental health problems means we can be scared to speak about them...that stigma is slowly fading, but we need to do everything we can to make opening up that conversation and seeking help as easy as possible. don’t keep it to yourself. there are people here to help, and people there who may feel similarly. you aren’t alone. if you are in need of urgent help here are some places you can always reach out to: usa/canada: Crisis uk: Samaritans or Mind aus: www.sane.org any good friend or family member or nurse, doctor or teacher big love dave http://smarturl.it/GA-S2E3longsleeve

GO SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL RECORD STORE. we made some limited edition vinyl for the occasion. it’s a press of four stripped/jammed out tracks from our first album zaba. ed on bass, joe on drums, drew on guitar/rhodes, and me on gtr and voice. raw funky stuff...no synthy shit. all recorded live at Capitol Records’ Studio A...the studio used by frank sinatra, nat king cole, the beatles, beach boys, mariah, and of course katy perry. they will be present at all participating stores...(usually the really indie hipster looking ones with fixed gear bikes outside). get it april 13th at your local spot.
yo yo. so we’ve teamed up with two of our fave charities and made some limited run t shirts...the first is for the lovely Rainforest Trust...(see it on my boi joe)...100 percent of profit will go to them. They have bought and conserved over 20 million acres of rainforest since the 80s, creating national parks and protecting the habitats of countless endangered species. artwork is ripped from our first record which was rainforest themed...only seemed right. let’s save some elephants and trees and shit. http://smarturl.it/GA-zababirdstee next shirt coming soon.
yooo our man Jack Saunders is going to be playing out a couple party tracks we selected on BBC Radio 1...just to help you kick off 2019 properly. tune in to his show from 11pm todayyyy. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/live:bbc_radio_one
This is a clip from the Agnes video that was cut from the final edit because it was ‘too scary’ when i passed out from the insane G force. I regret letting it get cut. The video and the song are about mental health…and fact is, mental health is a scary subject. probably because its impossible to understand exactly what people are going through when they have mental illness. And its difficult to understand what’s happening in your own head if you have these problems yourself. We shy away from talking about it all too often. and we shouldn’t. If you are having any mental health issues, you aren’t alone in that, and help is always there. One in four of us will suffer at some point in our lives....don’t be afraid to speak about it. here are a few places you can reach out to if you are in need: USA/Canada: @crisistextline UK: @samaritanscharity AUS: www.sane.org your friends and family love always, dave #worldmentalhealthday
a message from joe ❤️: hi everyone, it's joe. I have learned a lot this summer, I thought I'd share a few of my findings with you all: 1) I am extremely lucky. my family and friends and the doctors and nurses in dublin are remarkable people. the band and my family sat next to me in hospital for two weeks while I couldn't speak or move and haven't left me since, I've been looked after by the best 2) trucks are extremely hard. 3) in the last couple of months I have learnt to walk, talk and read again- watching a body heal in real time has been quite amazing, saying more than 'i' is actually very complicated and tiring, so is adapting to lots of metal in your limbs. i have always taken my body for granted, I won't anymore. 4) your support, messages, letters and videos have been inspiring. I'm so sorry if you missed us playing this summer, we will get back to those we missed when we can. you are very cool people for bearing with me. apparently: 5) brain injuries can lead to wildly increased creativity - less inhibitions - so basically perfect timing for getting back on my kit, which I have just started doing. It'll be what all the musicians are doing soon, believe this is a picture of my carrot cake, the flamingos on top are the band apparently - and a picture of cardi bee, i was asked to channel my inner Frida Kahlo while convalescing, this is what I came up with - see point 5 above thank you all for your support. especially to dave, drew and ed Joe
