To start the year, Good to Die Records released a split Kinski/Sandrider 12″ EP. We played the release show Neumos with Sandrider. For this, we were joined on stage with legendary guitarist Jakob Sjöholm from the mighty Träd, Gräs & Stenar on one (long) number.

Kinski’s new album “7 (or 8)” is released, and we played some shows to celebrate:

June 4th – Seattle – Chop Suey w/ Fungal Abyss and Gold Fronts
June 5th – Portland – The Know w/ WL and Sam Coomes (of Quasi)
June 6th – San Francisco – Hemlock Tavern w/ Heron Oblivion (which features Ethan and Noel from Comets on Fire as well as the wonderful Meg Baird), and Mall Walk

And two videos were made, by Mike Wurn and Carlos Lopez.

Kinski returns to Capitol Hill Block Party in July.

In September played in Seattle with Moon Duo and a new band called Shitty Person (members of Lesbian and Master Musicians).

East Coast tour in October. We kicked off this tour with old friends Landing, who are some of our favorite people on the planet. Incidentally, it’s their 20th Anniversary too!  Congrats guys! Anyway, they were kind of to loan us gear, and really went above and beyond in their helpfulness. And the band is amazing too. Check them out if you haven’t done so already. After that, we got together with (other favorite people of the world) Oneida, and borrowed gear from them as well. Thanks guys! Also, were really stoked to play with the new band from Mission of Burma’s Peter Prescott, Minibeast. Excellent tour!
