Thanks to the lovely folks over at MTV for bringing two more of our songs to this past season of Teen Mom: “Queen of Hearts” and an unreleased track called “Nerveless.” Luckily there were no pet-related emergencies in these episodes, but we did get a little misty eyed when Jenelle has to choose between going to prison and missing a Ke$ha concert.
Tour was a whirlwind. Thanks to The Joy Formidable and crew for treating us like family and showing us an incredible time on the road. We’re grateful for all the new friends, fans, and memories we’ve made along the way and can’t wait to get back out again to meet even more of you. Until then…

It feels so good to have spent last night surrounded by our friends as we won the Boston Music Award for Rock Artist of the Year. Thanks to all of you for supporting us.
Tune in to MTV this Monday, January 14th, to hear our song “Silencer” in what will almost certainly be the darkest episode of “Teen Mom 2″ ever. Airs at 10/9c
When you grow up playing music, the ultimate dream is that one day you’ll be out on the road opening for your favorite band. Today, that dream becomes our reality. We are ecstatic and humbled to announce that The Joy Formidable has invited us on tour this April. Every single one of these shows will be the biggest show we’ve ever played. We can’t wait to meet all of you in Toronto, Montreal, Albany, Milwaukee, and Lansing. Tickets go on sale Friday (the 25th), get them before they sell out and please come say hi after our set.
“Alarms” is now available for Rock Band 3 in the XBOX 360 store.
Thanks to Dave Duncan at WEQX for making our song “Alarms” his 2:30 spotlight pick today.
“RIBS put on quite the show during Night #1 of the Boston Accents Funeral Party. Not only did they have a a ton of music and electronic gear hooked up, but they brought their own light show. There were so many cords and cables on the stage you’d think they had the Ark Of The Covenant up there.* They opened with Placebo’s “Pure Morning,” a sign of the indielectro rock that would mark their powerful set.”
