Holidays for Quince

Nightlight Show 3.8.12

We’re playing our first show in six months (!) on Thursday, March 8th at Nightlight in Chapel Hill. Our set will mostly be comprised new music we’ve been working on. The new material is subdued, deliberate and controlled, focused on feel and repetition.

We’re playing with Me You Us Them from Brooklyn and Grass is Green from Boston.  Both are good indie/post-punk bands headed south, for lack of a better quick descriptor. More information will be available at the Nightlight website. Hope you can make it to check out what we’re up to.

Band Update / Bandcamp Update

We’re laying low lately, but are steadily working on new music.  We’re excited about new directions we’re exploring.  Stay tuned for local shows in the new year.

You can now listen to our last album, 33.3, in full online.  Since release over a year ago, we’ve posted only one song at a time (just 3 total), but you can now preview the full album through our Bandcamp page (or the above widget). If you would like to own a copy, digital downloads of the album, in your choice of format, are available for $8 through the same page, or through iTunes, Amazon.mp3, and other digital music outlets.

We’re really proud of this album, and are glad you can check it digitally, but the whole idea was to release a warm and full-sounding vinyl LP. We have a limited number of heavyweight 180 gram records, with full color artwork by Steve Wright. You can get a copy via Holidays for Quince, through local record stores, or at our shows. If you buy one this month, send us an email and we’ll send you your choice of a Growler CD, a Monsonia EP CD, or a 3/4 sleeve Monsonia shirt. We’re cleaning out our closets, but we also just want to add value if you can support us by buying the 33.3 vinyl.
