"The Radio EP" is out now! 

Yeah, that's right! Release day has arrived!

You can now download the "The Radio EP" from our music page or pick up a CD from our online store. Don't forget to use the discount code to receive 20% off your purchase, and if you don't have a discount code, you can get one by signing up for the mailing list.

You can also stream the full EP for free on Spotify, Bandcamp, YouTube, SoundCloud, and more.

You won't be disappointed.

Listen to it, fall in love with it, and put your favorite track in your go-to playlist. When it comes up on shuffle, crank it. Show it to your friends. Worst case scenario, they'll be like, "meh" and you don't put it on when they're in your car anymore. But mostly likely they will thank you and think you're cool and that you have good taste and they'll want to hang out with you more so you can keep showing them stuff they like. Basically, help us get these songs into people's earholes because we're proud of them.


And thanks to Substream Magazine for debuting "Committed"--the second single from the EP--yesterday!

Shows, Tour Dates, The Radio EP, and Ramblings. 

There's a lot going on these days in the land of American Pinup! We're about to drop some knows on you - right here, right now.

Shows

Our very own Lauren West is playing a solo/acoustic show on Thursday, August 20th with Hopeless Otis, Enziguri, and The Car Bomb Parade at The River Roadhouse in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY. She'll be playing some new, new songs, some fun/old deep cuts, and Rob may even hop up and play some of your favorite AP songs with her... Don't miss this unique and intimate little show. Followed by some serious punk rock from the other bands.

Next up on the agenda is the Rat's Nest Run-In Rockabilly Rendezvous! This is a very cool event at the Blackthorne Resort in East Durham, NY.
 
First and foremost, it's a vintage car show and contest, but there are other totally tubular things happening at the resort as well. In addition to awesome the live music going on all weekend, there will be a variety of vendors, a burlesque show, a pig roast luau / tiki pool party, a pinup girl contest, a complimentary martini hour, and a haunted house. A goddamn haunted house, you guys. If you're a fan of rockabilly, old cars, free martinis, cool vintage stuff, or all of the above, this event is for you. Make the trip - it will be like living in another time for a weekend. I also happen to know that there is an albino peacock living on the resort. So, that's pretty cool. And even cooler, it's only $20 for the whole weekend.

As far as performances go, we'll have be playing a total of three sets over the weekend, including one acoustic set at the Sunday brunch. Here's when and where you can catch us:
Saturday, August 22nd - 2:30pm - outside on the main grounds
Saturday, August 22nd - 11:00pm - in the Nite Club
Sunday, August 23rd - 12:30pm - *acoustic brunch*

Plus, we'll be running around the resort the whole time meeting folks, drinking drinks, and taking pictures of and likely with ridiculously cool cars. Tim may even enter the pinup contest. I mean, you never know.

Hint: This weekend also happens to be the first shows we have after the official release of the new EP on August 21st. We'll probably end up at the fire pit behind the Nite Club after our set on Saturday night and we'll probably have been drinking enough to sell you a copy real cheap. Let's talk... we'll talk.

Help us spread the word about these shows! Tell your friends we're coming to town and shame them if they're like, "But it's a Wednesday, I have work, I'm tired." Tell them to sleep when they're dead. I know it sounds harsh, but sometimes that memento mori can be just what your boring friend needs to get out of the house and come to a cool show. Tell them to stop thinking of themselves for once in their miserable life. Maybe they'll actually enjoy themselves. Maybe they'll meet someone who inspires them. They'll never experience anything if they keep shutting everything out. This has to stop. Enough is enough.

*cough*

We'll be chronicling our travels over social media and hashtagging and high-fiving all over Amurhica. You can help fill in the web-based narrative by circulating flyers, coming to shows, sharing our stuff, and using the hashtags #kindasomething, #kindasomethingtour, and #kinda_____ <--- fill in that blank with an adjective and/or expletive of your choice.

And finally...

The Radio EP

You know by now that we have a new EP coming out called "The Radio EP" - right?

So, here's the deal. We had a pretty rad release celebration at Garcia's last week...

we <3 you crazy kids


Some of you lucky-ducks-turned-early-birds were able to pick up an exclusive pre-sale CD of the EP at this show. What do you think of it? Pretty nifty, huh?

The EP officially drops like it's hot on Friday, August 21st.

Wait, I feel like that should really make more of an impact... let's try...
 
Friday, August 21st!!!

That's more like it.

Anyway, currently, we have digital-only pre-order going on. This means that right now, at this very moment, you can put in an order for a download link to be delivered to your email inbox on release day. 

There's also a special, secret discount code that you enter to receive 20% ANY purchase from our website now through 8/27. If you don't have this code, you probably haven't signed up for our mailing list. Do that, and you'll get the code in a confirmation email. Boom. Easy. (Don't worry, we won't spam you. Seriously, we're too lazy to spam you tbh lolz.)

Starting on August 21st, you'll be able to purchase the snazzy but surely outmoded CD format of the EP. If you put your order in on release day, you can use the discount code to buy it, along with the other cool merch we'll finally be making available online that day. Big ol' sale, basically. New music, shirts, and other goodies. What I'm saying is, clear some time in your schedule to check out what we have going on that day. Otherwise, you'll be commenting "#fomo" all over the Instagram photos of everyone else with their cool new AP merch. You don't want that. You deserve better. You deserve cool new AP merch.

So, after all this, what can you look forward to from us? (What more do you want from us, people?)

Well, we have a couple of videos up our sleeves, to be sure. We know how you love those. There will more touring, of course. And then who knows... I mean, you can only plan so far ahead. We're only human.

Humans who love you. Yes, you. We love you. Please accept our love.

Thanks.
