My favorite song to play right now is my new single called "Say It Again." My boyfriend lives in Scotland, so the song is about how hard it can be to be in a long distance relationship, but it’ll be worth it eventually when we won’t have to wait months to see each other anymore.

Hey everyone, last tuesday the transmission in our van went and we have been stuck in Chicago ever since. Today marks day 6 that we have been stranded here. We've missed the last 4 shows on the tour we are currently on. Things are a little rough right now but we will figure it out, we always do! if any of you guys would like to help, the best way for you to do that would be to pick up a shirt from our online store! here is the link. Pick up some Lions Lions merch because although the windy city is quite beautiful, we really would like to continue playing music...
Actor, writer, and director Harold Ramis has died at the age of 69. His credits include legendary comedies such as Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, Stripes, Groundhog Day, and more. One of the most influential and brilliant comics to ever live, he'll surely be missed. Don't cross the streams.

Boston-based Somos is streaming "Domestic" from their debut LP, Temple of Plenty, at The AV Club. The band plays a sort of emo-tinged powerpop, but the musicianship has a punk backbone and it's catchy as all hell. Their first single, "Dead Wrong," reminded some users of Name Taken. So listen to that song if that sounds like something you'd enjoy, and if you like it you can preorder Temple of Plentyfrom Tiny Engines.
Anthony Green has had to cancel his European tour due to a family illness.
It’s with deepest regret that I have to cancel my upcoming European tour due to a family illness. I absolutely need to stay in the states with my loved ones during this time. Unfortunately this means neither I nor The Dear Hunter will be playing any of the shows we had scheduled. I’m so sorry to all the fans overseas. I was and still am looking forward to getting back over there to see you. We’re already trying to reschedule all the shows for another time later this year.
Thank you for your support and understanding,
The lyrics for me were far more self help than self loathing, they were more about trying to get through the bullshit and kind of continue on and I think that’s something in life that everybody does in different ways and you cope in different ways and sometimes there are good ways and bad ways. I felt like when I was trying to come up with a title for the record, I’d asked people what they thought of the word cope and every single person I asked would have a different meaning, I liked that idea in the lyrics that people could interpret them in different ways from each other...
