"Time to be a Man" is my favorite thus far. And definitely the most synthpoppy.

Did you all get this email yesterday? Cool idea, but Facebook fans of the band were not liking the surprise second album if they had pre-ordered. Sigh...

Good morning,

We’re happy to announce that tomorrow we will be releasing not one, but two records. The first is a mostly electronic/synth-driven/beat-driven record called Dope Machines, and it will be available everywhere. The second is an acoustic and rock and roll record, called Songs of God and Whiskey. That record will only be available on our website beginning at midnight tonight.

If you’re receiving this email, it’s because you’re on our email list which means you’ve probably been to a show or maybe even that we’ve met you at some point in the past eight years out on the road. After all, that’s how this email list was made—culled over endless hours in venues around the world meeting people, covered in sweat, the room stinking of beer. For that reason, we felt it was only appropriate that we announce this news to you first (it’s not being announced anywhere else for a while) and to tell you that we’re so glad that we’ve gotten to meet you through these years, to see the cities where you live, to share the moments we’ve shared in those sweaty, beer-soaked rooms.

The songs from Songs of God and Whiskey are taken from 10 years of songwriting. Some are quite new, some are quite old. All were recorded by us as a group in a small studio on a hill in Los Angeles (Mount Washington, to be exact). We’re not doing any tricky chicanery on the tracks to make them hard to copy or send or reproduce. We’re quite aware that makes them easy to be traded on file-sharing sites, but hey I guess that’s the world we live in. We trust you’ll be cool and buy it if you want it. It’s seven bucks—the same amount we would get from iTunes if we sold it there.

It would be fashionable to say we decided to forego the long process of promotion and distribution of the modern music industry as a way of doing our part to attempt to realign the music world to be a more artist friendly environment in which the blah blah blah… But it’s not really true. (Even though we very much agree with those principles).

With this, we just had a simple idea in mind: make it and put it out.

Songs of God and Whiskey

1. Poor Isaac
2. Cocaine and Abel
3. A Certain Type of Girl
4. Change and Change and Change and Change
5. April is the Cruelest Month
6. The Lines of the Cars
7. Strangers
8. Why Why Why
9. California
10. The Fall of Rome

Here are two tracks from the album:

The cover art is a painting by artist Mike Stilkey. Mike is a decorated artist and Los Angeles native. His paintings and installations can be found in museums and private collections around the world. We were honored to have him collaborate with us for our 2009 Walt Disney Concert Hall show.

We’ll see you out on the road..

Well, I thought about cancelling my iTunes preorder (there was plenty of time to do so), but I took less than a minute to decide that I was going to keep the digital and order the physical album to tap the $7 Son gs of God & Whiskey.

I'm not entirely sure about how I feel about DM yet. Its like Joy Division became New Order. It'll take time to sink in. A lot of respect that they don't want to be boxed into a specific sound. California is fantastic. Both versions.

There is a huge part of me that wants TATE to open for the start of U2's tour.

The Airborne Toxic Event!

Is it weird that I made the JD-New Order comparison earlier?

Is it also weird that you're the second person to point out the opener for U2? Their euro tour ends with the start of U2 Chicago.

They've been on my list for openers for a few years now, but went down a bit because I didn't care as much for their EP.

Am I missing some dates? I see that they're in South Africa for a couple of festival shows at the end of April. That's 2 weeks before Vancouver. What May dates haven't I seen?

Well we've already got some Denver dates and others leaked in March, but I forgot what I was going off of.

Probably just ends in May.

I am SO IN LOVE with The Thing About Dreams!
It's one of the most beautiful songs I've heard in a while.

Yes yes yes, between that and Time to be a Man, two favorites. The latter being cliche but atmospheric.

I love the dreamy etherealness of it. The refrain is just beautiful.
