Tour update

So we have 6 shows left in this current tour we're on, and so far it has been AMAZING.  People have been coming out to shows at a steady rate for a variety of reasons.  They seem to be finding us through our film, Elizabeth Touring Test comic, or just our music wherever they happen to find it.  Maybe it's all just good luck, or we're picking good shows, or something along those lines, but for whatever reason, it feels very validating and encouraging.  We're hitting show 800 on Thursday night, too, which sounds a lot bigger than it actually feels.  That "1000th show" mark feels ever closer....

We did have one bum show in Cheyenne, WY.  To be fair, we never played there (or anywhere in Wyoming) before, and the show was supposed to start at 6:30 on a Tuesday night at a small coffee shop.  Plus, no local bands were playing with us either.  We set up and waited.  Aaaaaaand no one came.  So we packed up and left.  The staff was very kind and apologetic though, which was nice.  We ended up turning the night into a little party with comfort foods and a cheap hotel room.  In the end, it felt good to just rest for a bit.  The next night we played an AMAZING show in Laramie, WY, which is 45 minutes from Cheyenne, so it all turned out fine anyway.  

We still do have more midwest and northeast shows coming up in the next month-ish, so please come out if you're nearby any of those places.  

However long you've been a fan of ours, thank you so much.  Right now, it really feels like big things are on the horizon.  Still a ways off, but they're coming.  Thank you for being a part of this.  

New music video!

It's for "Sexuality and My Decisions Concerning Sexuality (Both Good And Bad)".  Enjoy.

New shirts!

We have some new shirts available!  Come to an upcoming show this fall in order to get one.  

 

We're gonna break a world record

BIG NEWS

Elizabeth and I are going to attempt to break the world record for "Fastest to Play a Concert in Each of the 50 States"! We're going to attempt this February through April in 2019. We have just begun booking and we'd love for you to be involved.

We're looking for places to play. If you love a venue near you we should check out, let us know! If you want us to come play in your house, let us know! If you know a person who knows a person who knows a person who books a bar/coffee shop/DIY space/whatever, let us know!

As long as we can play our show in a space, we want to come to that space. We can't go everywhere, and only one show per state, but if you'd like to point us in the right direction for your home state, email us at pocketvinyl@gmail.com

Thanks everyone!  This should be a good time.

The Touring Test gif

Elizabeth made a Touring Test comic recently about a cat.  It went a little viral on facebook, which was fun.  Now some random person in the world made it a gif.  Fun times, we thought we'd share.

 

 

Eric on "Let God Die" podcast

Hey everyone, so I was interviewed by the good folks at the "Let God Die" podcast, which is an awesome show about questioning everything.  I really loved the conversation we had.  We got pretty in depth about my past/present with theology and all sorts of thoughts on the matter.  There is even a joke or two in there as well.  

Take a listen!

It was probably my favorite interview I've ever done.  If you like the stuff in our songs "Foggy Mess", "Sink", and others in that direction, this'll be a good listen for you.

Pocket Vinyl on Flat Nickel

The underground music podcast Flat Nickel (which you really should be listening to) interviewed us a couple weeks ago, which is now out there in the world.  It was very fun interview to be a part of it, and I hope you enjoy this little window into our lives.

Check it out on iTunes.

Here's a picture of us with the hosts!

"Death Anxiety" fan made music video

So this awesome PV super-fan Jonas made a music video for our song "Death Anxiety" for a film class he's a part of.  It even impressively features animation that mimics the album cover.  Both Elizabeth and I are incredibly amazed by this and feel incredibly honored by it.  Thanks Jonas!

Our NEW new album "Old Sun" out June 1

Listen to our new song "Logic" while Elizabeth makes the album cover art:

We have our second new album of 2018 coming out on June 1!  It's called "Old Sun" and it's available only through our new Patreon page!

For those who don't know, Patreon is a crowdfunding platform but instead of us asking for a big chunk of support once, we're asking for a little bit of support month to month.  It's a pretty sweet platform, and we have decided to finally make use of it.  With our The Touring Test webcomic, a bunch of videos we want to make, podcasts about each album, a graphic novel we're working on, a Guiness World Record we intend to break.....we have a lot of stuff happening in the coming year.

And we want you to be a part of it.
