Hey friends- in case you didn't know, we're on Instagram. We post more of the fun things we do on tour, and behind the scenes stuff there! http://instagram.com/joehertler / @joehertler 🌻🌈
Salt Lake City! We'll be hangin at The State Room on 2/6. Let's party! Grab your tix here: https://ticketf.ly/2qYaQKF
Dear Lansing, It's been, what - nearly two years since our last Lansing show? Well I'm delighted to tell you that we're coming back to The Loft on January 26th! Lansing is the place that I have called home now for almost 7 years. It's where the band started, where we have written and recorded the majority of our last three records, and where I will hopefully (sooner or later) own a home. We've been to almost all the states at this point. Seen many a different place, ya know? But this little city is where I want to be most, especially during those longer and more distant stretches of tour. Anyhow, the new record is done and we'll likely be unveiling a few new songs - and in proper hometown fashion, we'll be re-visiting some of the old classics, too. The theme is "underwater" so wear your captains hat or shark outfit. You do you! Tickets are available at: https://ticketf.ly/2Fmr8HD Gonna be a beach blast! See you there :D Love, Joe
Denver! We'll be hitting up the Larimer Lounge on 2/1 with our homies Graham Good & The Painters. Can't wait to hang with ya'll again! Get tix here: https://bnds.us/oak2zf

Just got back from Omaha at Make Believe Studios where we cut the final mix of our new record (more on that later). It’d be an understatement to say how helpful this Spirit Airlines sponsorship has been for us this year. Clearly one of the execs was in a touring band or is, at the least, a huge music fan. Without the slightest hesitation, another thank you is due.
We played some songs for BackStage Pass from WKAR and talked about what it's like to be a Rainbow Seeker. Catch our episode now on WKAR Passport or on WKAR TV January 12th! 📲 http://bit.ly/BSPwkar2018 😃
Thanks so much to everyone who came out to our fake New Years Eve party. ‘Twas our night to play some of our favorite songs - and to simply do something a little different and fun. Appreciate y’all so much for making it possible. It was an insane amount of work learning 14 covers, but it was totally worth it! We’ll be at The Signal in Chattanooga tonight with Here Come the Mummies for the real NYE party. See y’all in 2019 🎉 ❤️
Our "Fake NYE" show is quickly approaching! We've been busy practicing a ton of 90's covers as well as some other surprises for this one. 2018 has been an amazing year, and we can't wait to cap it off in Kalamazoo with ya'll on 12/29 <3 Get your tickets here: https://fanlink.to/fNYE RSVP to the Facebook event here: Fb.com/2170322266568544 Woo!

KALAMAZOO! We're bringing our "Fake New Years" show to the State Theater on Saturday, December 29th. This one day event will seek to emulate NYE festivities, featuring a countdown, a giant tinfoil ball, and a perfectly curated selection of 1990's and 2000's covers. Last year's party was one of our all-time favorites, and this year should be no exception. Our buddies in Desmond Jones and Basic Comfort will be joining us too!

We’ve played quite a few covers over the years, but Thundercat’s “O Sheit it’s X” is easily one of our all time favorites. We put a funky-disco spin on the original and decided to record it live at none other than Red Rocks Ampitheater. Not only is this our first ever live recording of a cover, but it also marks the first release on our new label, AntiFragile. Hope you dig it!
It's almost Halloween ya'll! If you don't know already, we take Halloween very seriously here at Rainbow Seeker Headquarters. Because of this, we're throwing THREE shows next weekend to celebrate. Costumes aren't required, but we are absolutely going to be dressing up, and you should too. Ticket links below 👻🎃 11/1 - Ann Arbor (Blind Pig) - https://fanlink.to/aa2 11/2 - Ann Arbor (Blind Pig) - https://fanlink.to/aa2 11/3 - Grand Rapids (Elevation) - https://fanlink.to/grn1 Photo: Taylor Ward
After two years and about 75,000 miles, our Mercedes Sprinter (named BarthaloMew2King) has been formally retired as the primary Rainbow Seeker transport. Our relationship with her has always been one of contention, as BTM had an insatiable thirst for the contents of our bank account (she gluttonously consumed nearly $30,000 over the last two years). While all her vehicular essentials (engine, transmission, ect) are in perfect working order, it was her Mercedes Diesel Emissions System that repeatedly failed us - and at the end of the day, a full-time, touring band needs a reliable whip. That being said, we'll have to cancel our DC show and we will be looking for a new high-top cruiser for 2019. Our manager loves nothing more in this world than saving money, so fortunately we were prepared for this. However, if you'd like to support us in our efforts to buy a new vehicle, please consider visiting our merch store or buying tix to our upcoming Halloween parties in Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids (they're pokemon themed, by the way). Oct. 13 - Club Dada - Dallas, TX Oct. 16 - Saturn - Birmingham, AL Oct. 17 - Aisle 5 - Atlanta, GA Oct. 18 - Cambria Hotel - Nashville, TN Nov. 1 & 2 - The Blind Pig - Ann Arbor, MI Nov. 3 - The Intersection - Grand Rapids, MI Tix and more info at JoeHertler.com
