Well, we made it home from Japan in one piece. We’ll be back, that’s for sure! Tour of our lives.

Next up, we’ve got our 4th LP/CD being released on DIRTNAP RECORDS, July 1st. CANADA DAY! We’re really happy with it, and we hope you will be, too. Here’s a few local release shows surrounding it.

WHoa… So, we just finished recording a new LP for Dirtnap in Oakland, California with Matthew Melton (Warm Soda, Bare Wires etc.), and we have to say, it’s going to be a great one. Should be out THIS SUMMER! Matthew grew up in Memphis and learned to record with Jay Reatard – He even took the “Blood Visions” cover photo. Let’s just say we were in good hands.

We’ve also got some dates in Canada, Japan and beyond coming soon. Check the “shows” page for more.

Lastly, our pals LATIDA Records in Vancouver just released our HIGH ABOVE EP on 7″, and word has it’s been selling quite well. Check out http://www.latidarecords.com for more info!

Interview with Nardwuar, New Video, New Album!

Hey ya’ll – just a quick update here from SAB headquarters. Our third LP, aptly titled “Third”, will be released on Dirtnap Records on February 12th on LP/Digital formats (a CD version will also be available on Waterslide Records from Japan). Might be our best yet! We’ve also completed our first video, which we’ll be able to post shortly. Our album release will be March 2nd at Babylon in Ottawa. Plans for a west coast US/Canadian tour currently in the works, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, here’s an interview we did with Nardwuar for FFWD Weekly in Calgary during Sled Island:
