We are very excited to be able to say we are playing at Lollapalooza this coming August. In 2007 we played our first ever US show at the event, so it’s going to be great to go back. We met M.I.A.. It looked like this:

And we were so much younger and fresher looking then:

Also, we have had a fair few inquiries from people asking if we are playing Reading/Leeds/Glastonbury etc. I think it’s safe to say we will not be playing any UK Festivals this Summer. Sorry to disappoint anyone.

this is win
a friend showed me the lineup and i think i may have soiled my undergarments.

definitely won’t miss you guys a second time around in Chicago.

hope coachella was amazing and crazy as it looked

What would also be really awesome is if you guys could book a local show around the same time. I know there were exclusivity issues on this tour, but I know that last year the Whigs and Broken Social Scene played Lolla as well as smaller local gigs (and other acts may have as well). BSS played the Metro the same night they played Lolla and it was incredible.

When you return to North America for Lollapalooza please make a pit stop in Montreal. We love your band. I promise to bring more bagels Ellen.

I enjoy (what appears to be) Neil’s blatant ogling of M.I.A. in that picture.
Great news about Lollapalooza. I hope I can make it to that (and P4K, and APW).

Hot damn, to see you guys 3 times in less than a year would be amazing. Might just have to take the trip to Chicago for Lolla this year..

Come back to Hillside, kids. That would be wicked.
