Moving On

Hey All. So, after 13 years, 5 albums, bunch of tours, and lots of laughs, Fruit Bats is calling it a day. There is no major or dramatic reason – I’m not gonna launch into one of those “the changing face of the music landscape in the digital age,” things. Especially since I don’t even understand any of that stuff. It’s been a long run and time for a change. I’ve been fortunate enough to start scoring movies and producing bands and I’m super excited to continue on with that. Plus I’ll still write songs and make records and play shows, which will scratch any Fruit Bats itch that you’ve got. I mean, Fruit Bats has always ostensibly been a “solo” project, so this is just the start of chapter two, really… But anyway, new music from me still!  More on that soon, so please don’t lose touch. This means that these shows next week will be our last (though I think we might plan some kinda epic last gig in Chicago one of these days, but that is to be determined)… So come on out and blow us a kiss goodbye. I know artists always say this but, seriously, thanks for listening, it has been amazing sharing this stuff with you. More to come (from a different angle) soon.

Mouthfuls 10-Year Anniversary Preorder & Shows

In celebration of its 10 year anniversary, Jealous Butcher Records will be releasing Fruit Bats’ 2nd album Mouthfuls on limited edition sea-foam green and yellow vinyl. On top of that, the LP jackets have been individually watercolored, making each copy a uniquely collectable item. When this album was originally released by Sub Pop in 2003 it was only issued on CD, so this will be the first time it will be available on vinyl. We are beyond excited to be able to bring this amazing record to you all, it hits the streets on October 29th, but you can preorder it here right now!

To add to the excitement, Fruit Bats will be embarking on a short tour of the Pacific Northwest to celebrate the release. The band will perform Mouthfuls in its entirety along with a selection of other classic material.
