It’s a good thing the young men of twinpeaksdudes are all 20 years old, because they are working at a furious pace that few post-30s bands could handle. In the past 5 days, live performance footage has surfaced from myriad locations, including their free-wheelin’ performance for this summer’s pitchfork Music Festival, a Treehouse Records session/interview for coslive, a sneak peak at their JBTV show taping, and a new video for their song “Fade Away” (premiered by AV Club, and GIFd out above).
Tomorrow they will live stream a performance and interview with Audiotree.tv at 2PM CDT. Basically, you could spend the rest of the afternoon surfing from one live performance to another. That said, everyone knows watching a video isn’t the same as catching the real deal, so the band is pumped to reignite the Wild Onion tour, which starts back up next week and essentially continues until Thanksgiving. The tour includes stops at the Goose Island/XRT 312 Urban Block Partyin their hometown of Chicago, a performance at the Brooklyn Flea Market, and a slew of shows at CMJ (most still to be announced in the coming weeks), including headlining the Rough Trade Day Party. They’ve also announced support for the tour, including Meatbodies, Criminal Hygiene, Ne-Hi, Radkey, and Tweens. Check the full schedule here, and get your ears on Wild Onion over on iTunes.
Grand Jury’s very first release — the marvelously fantastic Wild Onion by twinpeaksdudes — has been officially released. You can get it right now on iTunes or head over to your local record shop, where it’s available in a limited edition purple and bone colored vinyl (photo here).
The dudes hit Reckless Records in their hometown of Chicago today for a 5pm in-store that’s sure to be packed to the gills, and kick off the first leg of their neverending tour on August 8th in Detroit.
And don’t forget! If you’re near one of these stores, there’s an insanely limited (100, that’s it) quantity of hand-customized test pressings of the album available. These will be gone after today.
Who knew twinpeaksdudes were such Picasos? That photo above is just 4 of 100 band-customized test pressings of their new album, Wild Onion, which hits stores tomorrow (shit — tomorrow!!!!). A handful of those stores will actually be carrying copies of the test pressings, lovingly adorned with our boys’ hilarious scribbles, in the racks. Here’s a list of the shops who’ve been kind enough to bring in some copies. All hand-numbered, so give us a shout and let us know which ones you find!
