We must have panicked when we realized the days were getting shorter again, cuz all of a sudden we started booking like crazy and now have a ton of great shows coming up! Highlights include Minneapolis appearances by far-flung heroes of ours Helms Alee (Seattle, WA), The Bronzed Chorus (Greensboro, NC), and Cinemechanica (Athens, GA). Not all on the same night, of course, but you can discover all of the excellent details for yourself by visiting the 'shows' page. You'll also notice that we'll be making a couple of quick trips to Chicago and Madison in the next few months. And uh...dare I mention that there have been whispers about some European dates in 2017? Well, then.

What about some new material, you ask? Better get yourself to a show to find out. We just may have a surprise or two in our cache...

We realize it’s been a bit quiet on the S-E front lately, and for a number of reasons: we’ve been writing new material, Ben has recently become a father, Tom has been busy winning awards for his delicious home brew, I’ve been focusing much of my energy on getting Technician’s debut record finished and sent to press, etc…but don’t you forget about us.  We’re getting back down to business this fall.  Tom and Ben got together with the good people at Day Block Brewing to design a recipe for a signature ale which we’ll be celebrating (read: drinking) at the brewery in downtown Minneapolis on 10/23 - we’ll also be playing some music for you that night.  AND - you’ve got another opportunity to catch us before the Day Block show, as we’ll be playing with our friends Fury Things at Icehouse on Friday, 10/2.  Come hang out with us and get your Rocktober double dose of Self-Ev - we look forward to seeing you!

At least for this guy. Shows this summer will be few and far between as we're locked up in the rehearsal space cranking out new tunes for a new album. We recommend that you plan to get yer S-E fix when we open for Local H on Friday, August 7th at the Triple Rock. Check the facebook page in case a house show pops up in the meantime. Also, buy a copy of The Traveler if you haven't yet, eh?

Love, hugs, and be well.

So who or what is The Traveler? The Traveler is a forthcoming 8 song compact disc by Self-Evident. Four songs recorded with Adam Tucker at Signaturetone (two new originals, two covers), and four songs recorded - but previously unreleased - during historical sessions with Carl Amburn at The Mousetrap in Norman, OK. We look forward to celebrating the birth of this new effort with all of you at the Icehouse in Minneapolis on Saturday, March 14th, so mark yer calendars.

(Side note: we are also currently working on our full-length follow up to WBAFOSN, which we're hoping to have in your hands sometime in early 2016. Please have patience.)
