We want to thank all of you for your continued support and friendship over the years. It’s been a hell of a ride. But for the Boyz of Noise™ the time has come to put down our guitars and pick up some forks. We’ll now be devoting all of our time to our professional cooking show, Cookin’ Stuff With Austin. We’ve spent our lives believing that music is food for the soul. Now it’s time we put our mouths where our soul is. Or something. Hopefully we’ll be touching just as many people with our food as we did with our music. Here’s the debut episode of Cookin’ Stuff With Austin. Eat it up! —– Oh, and we’re playing next week in Chicago with a couple of our favorite bands, Twinsmith & Sunjacket. This is going to be a party you won’t want to miss. See you Friday, April 8 at SubT Lounge (we think it’s the venue beneath SubT?) in Chicago!

Here it is. Our long-awaited, highly-anticipated, surely-soon-to-be-critically-acclaimed music video for “Next To You.” This is our cover of The Police’s classic rock tune and we’re excited to offer the single as a FREE download RIGHT HERE. ‘Tis the giving season after all. We started filming this music video back in February and just finished it last night. Hot tip for all you budding Henry Selicks out there thinking about filming a stop-motion animation video: Don’t.

This year’s shows are shaping up to be the biggest, most Christmas-y yet! We’ve been soaking in a tub of egg nog since Halloween and we’re ready to slide onstage like a bunch of greasy hockey pucks. So throw on your ugliest Christmas sweater and let’s dance for a great cause. Join us Saturday, December 12 at RecordBar in Kansas City when we join our friends in Bonzo Madrid and The Author And The Illustrator. Show starts promptly at 9:30pm.
