This used to be a band from Portland, Maine. But it doesn’t exist anymore.

Pay what you want for the download from Bandcamp. Happy Holidays!

Tonight at Empire Dine & Dance in Portland. With Sunset Hearts and Hi Tiger (cd release show). We play last.

Thanks for everything.

Hello friends. Time for change. This will be one of our last shows and it’s happening tomorrow night at Empire. Come party with us and pick up one of our very limited edition shirts while you can!

We’re sharing the bill with NYC’s Xylos and Maine’s premier dance party-inducing dj’s/electronic act, Vistas. Don’t miss this. Get details and tickets here.

Just in time for our shows in CT and NY this weekend, we have brand new t-shirts! This very limited edition of two-color screenprinted shirts (design by Bryan Bruchman, printed with the help of Kris Johnsen) will be for sale for $10. The navy blue shirt features glow-in-the-dark ink.


We’ve added a show on our way down to the Northside Festival in Brooklyn next weekend! This will be our first time playing in Connecticut. Our set at The Outer Space will follow the Antlers’ set across the parking lot at The Space. Admission is $5 or free with a stamp from the other show. Awesome!

You can get tickets in advance for the Antlers/Little Scream show (which also gets you into our show later) here.

Brooklyn, we’ll see you soon.

The sampler (including our track) is free and has some great songs on it, including exclusive new tracks from a number of Maine artists. We’re excited for the Free Range Fest in Belfast on the 30th! Check out this special version of our song “Spade” below!

The GBV tribute album is out today! To celebrate, we’re playing at the Bull Moose Music in Brunswick, Maine! Come celebrate Record Store Day with us and pick up the double colored vinyl version of Sing For Your Meat!
