The Orion Songbook came out 10 years ago today. Our first album! Released on Matthew's 23rd birthday, today he turns 33. So that's what a decade feels like. SO much has happened. Much to come. Thank you all who have taken our music into your lives. We love you. GO VOTE!

THANK YOU EUROPE & UNITED KINGDOM!
it's June again! here's a celebratory gift—unreleased studio version of an early FR tune, June Is Our Mother's Name.
Some fans asked us to cover this Talking Heads song to play as part of their wedding ceremony. Thought we'd share!

Original drummer Ryan “Smalls” Etzcorn also stopped by the session to appear on 5 tracks.

Google Doodle artist Matthew Cruickshank was at our sold-out San Francisco living room show and made this incredible rendering. Our western US tour with special guest Cataldo has been such a blast! From Seattle to Denver, folks have been turning out to these intimate shows in which we're trying to pack in as many songs as possible from our entire catalog.
Still to go: Omaha, Minneapolis, Chicago, then home to Michigan (Holland & Ferndale)
