The band are excited to announce extensive winter/spring tour dates, including stints on the road with Minus The Bear and Circa Survive, as well select dates opening for Bob Mould as his personally invited guests.

“…at once instantly inviting-plenty of earworm-worthy angular guitars and seductive synthesizers-and surprisingly deep, with Dalager’s wounded alto the perfect conduit for the band’s tales of fragile relationships in flux.” – The Onion
“Threads is expansive, ocean-sized, heart-on-sleeve pop. It’s a big ambitious record that sounds like it was built for places like Terminal 5, and who knows, it may not be long before they are headlining there themselves.” – Brooklyn Vegan
“…these songs, especially the stuttering “Dead Oaks” and the gorgeous “School Friends,” comprise a winning collection of emotional songs about relationships, romantic and otherwise.” – Under The Radar
