Thanks to Dave Duncan at WEQX for making our song “Alarms” his 2:30 spotlight pick today.
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.
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
UPDATE: We’ll also be playing the nominee party at Red Star Union on Wednesday, November 7th.

Thanks to WRS, Switzerland’s English radio station, for playing our track “Even” and welcome to our new Swiss and French fans.
RIBS from Boston finished off the night with their post-punk/industrial sound that was shrieking and extremely dark, if you like Joy Division, Nine Inch Nails and TV On The Radio along with a soulful tinge then these guys are your cup of tea. A performance featuring “Kiss”, “Even”, “Gateway Drug”, a cover of Hole’s “Celebrity Skin”, “Brains”, “Alarms” and “Destructo” rocked the stage and was simply magnificent. RIBS have an EP out called Russian Blood that’s fantastic, some of the best music from Boston you’ll ever hear. Another wonderful night of live music at the best music venue in Pawtucket, log on to themetri.com for more info on shows.
