< FAREWELL JAPAN >
This week in Tokyo, Yokohama, + Osaka has been ultra SAIKO. Thank you for your voices, beautiful art (check out that kimono!!), + your rock n roll KOKORO. 💗 Much love + see you again soon! Matane! <🇯🇵>
I've been trying to figure it out. David Bowie was a legend, a rare artist, but why was he special to me? Why does my band mention his name in virtually every interview? Why do I feel like I've lost a great teacher, a mentor?
If Bowie has taught me anything, it's that I have the power to surprise myself. There is more to me than meets the eye; there is more to me than I even know myself. I’d be ignorant, I’d be arrogant to presume that I know or have even imagined all the heroes or monsters I might become: an astronaut, an alien, a beast, a Thin White Duke, a Goblin King. Somehow I will gather the courage to find these strangers in me, embrace them, + expose them in front of the whole world, so that those people who see might glimpse something so horribeautiful in themselves. And maybe after that, the world might dig itself a little more, might learn to take care of itself a little better. That’s the example Bowie set for me and that’s what I intend to do.
So here’s to Ziggy, the first galactic rockstar superhero. Your message echoes on. Thank you for visiting Earth on your journey. We wish you well on your course set for Beyond. <⚡️>
hard to believe it’s been one whole year since we sent #TALKINGISHARD out into the Universe. today the memories of so many wild shows, strange + familiar places, + beautiful fan stories come rushing back, and we are filled up with love. you inspired us to shed our fears, walk out into the unknown, + express who we truly are. here’s to the next 365 days of dancing our asses off with you <+>
This Thanksgiving, or "Fansgiving" as we like to call it, we are delighted to announce that on December 4th we will release the DIFFERENT COLORS EP. The EP will include two previously unreleased songs as well as two wild remixes by @weareLostKings and our dear brothers @TheGriswolds. Also, to further our celebration of the power of diversity, we will be donating all of our proceeds to @HumanRightsCampaign. While “Different Colors” speaks out against discrimination of all kinds, it was the fight for marriage equality that initially inspired the song; HRC is a civil rights organization that works to ensure LGBT people of their basic equal rights + safety in their communities.
We are so thankful this year to have all of your support and to hear your stories of overcoming hard times with love + positivity. <+> Have an amazing day with your families and check out the DIFFERENT COLORS EP on December 4th!
HUGE thanks to the #AMAs for inviting us to their incredible party yesterday. And massive, MASSIVE thank yous to everyone who voted for us. We didn't bring home any awards, but y'all make us feel like winners every day. ❤️

after something really significant happens, whether victorious or horrific, it feels strange to return to everyday life. almost as if it would be disrespectful to keep on doing things as though what happened never happened. take your time to mourn, to reflect; allow others to do the same, but there is no shame or disrespect in keeping on. in fact, life requires it. allow the gravity of recent events to fuel your march, to stoke the fire in your heart, not extinguish it. from this point forward, we carry the memory like a torch to light our way when darkness returns.
#Paris + the other cities attacked this past weekend: our hearts continue to go out to you. keep singing, searching, marching. <+>
