Hello Tins Compadres,
We are excited to be heading into the studio next weekend to work on another new song that will be on our upcoming EP. The title of the EP is still TBD. It should be released around the beginning of May. More news on that coming to you soon!
We are also pleased to announce that 4 of our songs have been selected to be included in the new season of Roadtrip Nation on PBS! Check your local listings for showtimes and keep an ear out!
For Buffalonians and eager travelers only, we are playing at Club NOIR on Saturday, March 15th. NOIR has built in an all new sound and lighting system and has expanded their stage size so we are excited to be playing at a different venue in the downtown area. On top of that, Buffalo favorite DJ Bearskin Rug will be spinning old and new classics all night long for a little dance action in-between sets. IT IS GOING TO BE A GRAND SHOW!

In Other News:
March 22nd and 23rd we will be performing at the NACA Mid Atlantic Music Festival in Pennsylvania. If you know anyone in the college booking circuit ask em to come and check out The Tins!
We are also planning to release a special killer remix of "Please Be Kind" really soon! It will be available for free download on our website.
Our music was featured in the new nationally televised tv series: 90210, which you can watch on HULU here. (Skip to 18:10).
Also, our live in-studio session went up on Daytrotter. We played Spies, Shozo Hirono, The Green Room and Midnight Crowd. You can stream our entire Daytrotter session for FREE HERE.
Happy March to you all!!! And we hope to see you on 3/15 in Buffalo for our Dance Party! Come say Hi!

Yes, we just came back from our first ever daytrotter session! We have joined the ranks of bands such as "Fun," "Blitzentrapper," and "The Dirty Projectors" (among many, many more). Four of our tracks were performed and live streamed. If you are a daytrotter subscriber then you may have heard us. We sounded pretty raw, but in a good way. The session will be featured on daytrotter.com soon. In the meantime, enjoy that panorama...

Thought I would give a little heads up on the Tins' next adventures. After playing two great shows last weekend, one in Allson and the other in NYC, the Tins now take some much needed rest (and turkey breast) . I'm most excited for pumpkin pie and good ol' fashioned brisket. Following Tinksgiving day, we will play in Cleveland and Chicago. We're pretty excited for our Daytrotter session. Daytrotter is cool! If you don't believe us check for proof here: http://www.daytrotter.com/
We will be releasing some wild music in the coming weeks/months, including another snazzy remix, unreleased tracks that were recorded during the Life's A Gas sessions, and maybe even a cover (probably not a cover).
We are getting back to writing again... thinking outside the box a bit. Obviously we will let you know if we come up with a little somethin' somethin'. That's really it for now. Keep being our fans and stay excellent people!

Our debut album is actually going to be released in October... not July. We are developing a strategy for the release, so please be patient! We promise, no matter what, the album will be out in October. Forgive us world!
