I will be returning to France this December to play two more shows with the Young Rapture Choir. These shows will be similar in structure to those we did in 2012. There’s one in Bordeaux on December 13 at Le Krakatoa and one in Paris at La Gaite Lyrique on December 14th. You can get tickets over here.
West Coast USA, it’s on. Tour dates and ticket links are here. All dates are with the lovely (and not to be missed) Sea of Bees.
Dept. of Disappearance is finally on the way. It will be released in the US on October 16th and in the rest of the world on October 15th. It will be available as a CD, double vinyl LP (with an included CD), and as a digital Deluxe Edition with a few extra tracks. You can pre-order it now at Amazon.
To celebrate, we’re unveiling the video for Your Final Setting Sun. Cults! Thanks to Mike Aho for making it.

Just over 11 years after its original release, we are again celebrating The Sophtware Slump. This time it’s as the expanded Deluxe Edition which has been released today. The original album remains untouched in all its glory. We’ve also taken the time to collect a lot of other sounds from the period and included them in the hope of giving a clearer picture of that moment in time. Dig in to check out the original intro to “He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s the Pilot” (called “Discarded Pilot Intro” here) as well as the original demos for “Chartsengrafs,” “Beautiful Ground,” and “Hewlett’s Daughter.” The Bsides are there as well along with an expanded version of the booklet with writings from Jason and Jim and some unseen photos from back in the day.

Jason performed with Midlake at Dan’s Silverleaf in Denton, TX this past Saturday. More video should surface soon. Stay tuned.
Our friends at 7e.p. in Japan have released a 3 volume benefit compilation titled Resume. It includes 45 tracks, most of them previously unreleased, from 43 artists from America, Canada, Australia, the UK, the Netherlands, and Japan. All proceeds from sales of the individual songs and the compilation itself will go to support victims of the recent Japanese earthquakes and tsunamis. Jason has contributed a brand new song called “You Can Do It” which is available on Resume’s second volume. You can read more about the project and see the full tracklisting HERE. You can buy Resume Volume 2 HERE. Buy ’em all, get some great indie music, and support a great cause. Each volume is a very cheap $6.99!
Jason recorded this a couple of weeks ago in an apartment in Silverlake. Mostly new material….or…acoustic versions of what will be “more full sounding” new material. Watch the full videos HERE.
Thanks to Anchortapes ! Enjoy!
