what's going on? hope you're doing well. we just wanted to let you know about some upcoming activity. we're playing some summer shows. yay! the first one is in new york city with good friends and family: versus, gramercy arms and mascott. i think this one's gonna be great. for our part, we'll have a horn section playing with us, helping bring the bombast to you in a brassy way. we're super excited about this.

in other news, we're heading back to europe to do a couple summer festivals, a few shows, and to down a few cocktails on parisian sidewalk caf├ęs. see our shows page for details.

we'd also like to remind you about our expanded +/- {plus/minus} store where you can buy t-shirts (new designs and more sizes soon!), vinyl, cds and dvds.

    what's up!

    we're heading off to asia again in a few days, but wanted to drop a little news. +/- composed the soundtrack for an online video game called code of everand which is going to teach kids in the uk about crossing the street. it was a fun project to do and we're really excited about it.

    you can read more about it here.

    you can also watch the opening video of the game here.

    keep your eyes peeled for a new release in the spring.
