Long time no blog. That’s because we just launched a new website for our new album. We’re going on tour. We’re releasing the new album on 12″ vinyl in a gatefold package on November 6th in Austin. We’ll be in New York this month. There is too much to cram into this blog post. That’s why we made a new web site. You can hear the entire new YELLING AT THE SUN album online now. Let me tell you more.

Personal hero of mine, Pulitzer Prize finalist, author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius and What Is The What and How We Are Hungry, screenwriter of Where The Wild Things Are, and gifted artist Dave Eggers did our album art with drawings and slogans. You can read and hear about all of these amazing events at our brand new site: thecarousels.com. In this new enchanted webland, you can HEAR THE NEW ALBUM IN FULL, see where we’ll be traveling on tour, and you can READ THE FULL DAVE EGGERS ALBUM ART STORY. I promise you want to read that one. It’s pretty captivating. You can even watch a video about the educational non-profit work he’s doing and see how we want to use our new album to support it. Yes, all of those magical items can be found at our new web site.

The blog has been switched over there now, too. Join us.
