I'm loving these living room shows because they each seem novel and unique. The performance is never the same, and the setlist will never be replicated exactly. The rooms and the groups of people are different each time. In an age where things seem more and more permanent online, the spontaneous nature of these intimate live events feels more valuable than ever. Boise tomorrow and then we're done. Thanks to everyone who came out!
A little podcast on songwriting and what's going on right now, with me, Matt. Cheers to you. https://soundcloud.com/trollspodcast/episode-112-songwriting-conspiracies-matt-macdonald-with-bros-bibles-beer
Beautiful times last night in Snohomish, WA with an interactive & fun group. The songwriting workshop before went well too. Onwards always... .

Bellingham, WA last night was delightful. @theclassicrob randomly interrupted the set with a FaceTime call to say hello & ask me to officiate his wedding. We argued over who would pay the $29.99 to get me ordained and fully vested with the power. I think we can work it out, but he’s gonna have to come correct. If last night was any indication of what this tour will be like, we could be in for some special hangs... .

Fun fact: We celebrated the opening and closing songs of Albatross in the first verse of Gravedigging on our second record, The Silver Cord. It was a little nod to the past (and Matt's cheeky response to being asked to write a "follow up to The Fight"). Gravedigging was probably the closest we got to that: i've been sitting in the suicide lane on highway 99 looking for a sign in the HEADLIGHTS i've been to war with my mind things will be different this time i won't be putting up a FIGHT -Gravedigging (The Silver Cord, 2008)
