Here at Eux Autres’ secret lair buried deep in Mount Bernal, perpetually enshrouded in a fog bank, guarded by a geriatric beagle and a high-fiving labrador, we have been crafting a most elaborate plan.
And now, the time has come to reveal it.
We are going far away from home. Another continent entirely. And we depart very, very soon.
For three weeks, we will defy nature as we survive on chips, Malteasers, fusilli, and chianti and maybe, if we’re lucky, the odd brioche.
Which is a very long way of saying, we will be touring the UK and Europe, playing a bunch of shows, including two glorious popfests.
We are so very excited. Please come say hi if we’re coming to your town. We can’t wait to meet you.

Greetings from Eux Autres’ North Pole Workshop!
We are writing to share some special holiday glee with our friends.
First off, we have a few limited-edition red vinyl copies left of our Another Christmas at Home 7″ for sale in our store. The A side is our original Christmas song, “Another Christmas at Home.” The B side contains two covers: Slade’s masterpiece “Merry Xmas Everybody” and the Jacobites’ “Teenage Christmas.” The CD version of this album is out of print, but digital copies are available at Bandcamp, or any of your favorite digital music retailers.
Our staff of Christmas elves are standing by to ship your record immediately. Act now, or we’ll have to downsize!
Secondly, our version of “Teenage Christmas” is featured on Christmastime Approximately, released by England’s Where It’s At is Where You Are Records. It’s a great compilation chock-full of 20 poptastic tracks. There are a limited number of FREE downloads of the entire compilation, or you can order the CD version.
We hope your holidays are going swimmingly, wherever you are.
Thanks as always for listening. Without you, we’d be sad little melted snowballs in the gutter.
Our record Broken Bow came out last Tuesday. Today, we have released the first video, “Go Dancing.” Many of you fellow Replacements-nerds will recognize the homage to the seminal anti-video, “Bastards of Young.”
Hopefully all your pre-orders have arrived, and your holiday seasons are going wonderfully. We hosted our first band Thanksgiving here in San Francisco, and now we’re writing new songs for a January studio visit.
Stay happy and well.
P.S. Your Aunt Thelma secretly wants a vinyl copy of Broken Bow for Christmas. She told us so.
We are very excited to announce that our new album, Broken Bow, is out today! CDs and LPs are available in the shop, and digital copies can be found at bandcamp.com, or any of your favorite online retailers. If you’re in the UK or Europe, you can pick up a copy through wiawya.com.
Thanks to everyone who came out to our recent west coast gigs. We had a great time! We’ll be announcing some UK/Euro dates in the new year…
Hope everyone in the States has a great holiday weekend.
UPDATE (11/23): The record is officially out today! Pre-order is over. Head to the shop if you’d like to order a copy.
We’re very excited to present our new album, Broken Bow! The CD/LP will hit the streets on November 23, but you can order yours now. To sweeten the deal, the first pre-orders receive a very special Eux Autres tote bag. Who doesn’t love tote bags?
Order yours soon…the pre-order freebies went very quickly last time. As usual, all vinyl copies come with download codes for mp3s of the songs.
Check out all the artwork below. And then go check out the track “Go Dancing” streaming online.
As announced earlier, we’re playing some West Coast shows in honor of the release of record #3, Broken Bow. And now we’ve just added three new dates which will also feature the unveiling of power quartet Wild Flag. We are totally thrilled to be playing shows with this awesome lady supergroup.
Updated tour dates:
11/11/10 : Seattle, WA @ Sunset Tavern (w/ The Pomegranates)
