August tour dates!

Eux Autres will be hitting the road for most of August. We are extremely excited to play Athens Popfest (finally!) and hit parts of the country we’ve never even seen. Oh how we cannot wait to eat three consecutive barbeque meals in Lockhart Texas. To pay homage to early REM in Athens. To drink pilsner in Williamsburg. To make mom cook for us in Omaha. To be the first Larimers to play at the Larimer Lounge in Denver. Plus we will be playing with some seriously rad bands. All the details are up on the gigs page.

Please please drop us a line to say hi and give us some tourist tips if we’re coming to your town. We especially like weird local food, thrift stores, karaoke, roadside statues, swimming holes, and anything involving cats.

We can’t wait to meet all of you (or see you again.)

New single out today–“World Cup Fever 2010”. Download for free!

In anticipation of the return of the greatest sports event on the planet, we present “World Cup Fever 2010”. Written and recorded over the past week, it’s a love song to our favorite tournament of all time. It’s a FREE digi-single and it’s out now.

Download it here.

Check out the video below.

Like many people in the upcoming weeks, we’ll be waking up at 5 AM to scream at the television. If you’re not one of those people, we hope you can still enjoy this little ditty.

Upcoming west coast dates

We just wanted to drop you a line about some upcoming shows we’ll be playing…

First off, we’ve got the wonderful SF Popfest tomorrow night (Thursday, May 27) at the Rickshaw stop in San Francisco. We go on at 9:15, so get there early! There are four bands and a great DJ, so don’t miss out…and make sure to stick around the for the rest of the fest. There are a ton of great bands playing.

We’ve got some more west coast dates coming up in June, as well:
6/4 : San Diego, CA @ Tin Can Alehouse
6/5 : Los Angeles, CA @ La Cita (Hungry Beat! night)
6/28 : Portland, OR @ Doug Fir
6/29 : Seattle, WA @ Tractor Tavern

Our August US tour is almost set. We’ll be heading to the east coast and back. More details soon!

Thanks for listening. We hope to see some of you at the shows!

Reunited (and it feels so good)

We haven’t posted here in a while, so we’ve got some good updates…

We have been recently reunited. We tried to have a long-distance relationship, but we felt it was time to take the next step. Therefore, we are now all officially residents of the same fair city (San Francisco).

We are getting verrry close to being done with album #3. Jason Quever from Papercuts has been the man behind the music, working at Pan American Studios. We can’t wait to share it with you all.

Showtime! We’ll be playing some shows this spring, starting in Sacramento on the 26th. We had a wonderful time last time we were there–when we made some new friends and some locals fed us pizza. See you there, Sacto.

We’ve got a few other shows coming up this spring. Check the gigs page for more info.

Another Christmas At Home 7″ pre-order

UPDATE (11/24): The record is officially out today, and thus the pre-order is over. Thanks to everyone who placed an order! There are still some copies left, so get your orders in soon. If mp3s are your thing, the single is now available at all of your favorite online retailers.

We’re very excited to bring you the latest in Eux Autres Eux-mas madness! Our new 7″ Another Christmas At Home will hit the streets on November 24, but you can order yours now. There are only 250 copies of available, so be sure to get one early. This is the first time our Christmas song will be available on vinyl, and we’re throwing in our version of Slade’s classic “Merry Xmas Everybody” (previously only available on the out of print CD from 2006), as well as a brand new cover of The Jacobites’ “Teenage Christmas on the b-side. The single is pressed on beautiful red vinyl, and the silkscreened sleeves were created by Nicholas. To sweeten the deal, the first 25 pre-orders receive a very special Eux-mas gift–custom Lego band members. Who doesn’t love lego people? With each 7″, you get little toy figures of Heather & Nicholas (sorry, no Yoshi figure. He didn’t play on this record and was being shy about becoming a Lego man. Maybe next year).

Order yours soon…the pre-order freebies went very quickly last time. As usual, all copies come with download codes for mp3s of the songs.

Check out all the artwork below. And then go listen to the single streaming online.
