.@twinpeaksdudes literally tearing the roof off of @babysallright



twinpeaksdudes take it back to the sandlot in the video for “I Found A New Way.” Out now courtesy of our friends over at billboard. Wild Onion came out on Tuesday. Get it on iTunes


It’s out.

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. 


…is coming tomorrow.


Something new…


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!

We asked Twitter for a Twin Peaks (dudes) x Twin Peaks (show) mash-up. We got this back in 30 minutes. Thank you, internet!

At long last, the music video for twinpeaksdudes ”Flavor” was just unviled over on noiseymusic. Directed by the incomparable Ryan Baxley, it’s got pretty much everything: Marilyn Manson’s old pool, a horrific van accident, pink flamingo beer bongs. Enjoy.

Watch Twin Peaks’ “Flavor” Video on Noisey.
