Super excited that my good friend, good dude, and favorite artist Derek Van Gieson will once again be doing our album art! When asked “what do you have in mind this time?”, I told him to “Shake The Shadow.”
Management is saying the album is be released with deluxe liner notes, a leather (faux) reading chair, and a 20,000 word novella with 3 essay questions that must be answered correctly before the record will spin at the desired speed (78 rpm). So, that’s pretty cool, I guess.

So many things spinning around right now! Studio time booked for the end of May, a producer has been hired- the fire is lit.
Since we’re not playing any shows for the next couple of months, here’s a test shot from our new video. The working title for the song is A Rush, A Push- and will be on the new record. I know it probably seems like it’s been radio silence for a good long while, but big things are coming soon. Look for some crazy big news mid-July!

In the studio this weekend working on three new songs for the forthcoming full length. When’s it coming out, you ask? HA! We don’t give dates any more. By this point everyone knows we’re slow moving pokey puppies. So instead of giving a make believe date that we’d never hit, I’d just like to encourage you all that it’s gonna be good. Really good. The songs are the most obviously catchy ones to date, so either you’ll love that or say “Ugh. This is too catchy.”
we were coiled up close
in the manner of sad young americans.
you gonna wake up this ghost-
or go back to the one that you’re married to?
remember that night in your room when we read from your books on reclusive animals?

We’re super excited to announce Brite Revolution is debuting the new Lovely Sparrows video for While Sailing (the second single from Tall Cedars) TODAY! In addition, this week there’s a free download for the song. Please help spread the word, and “like” us on Facebook if you haven’t already- and feel so inclined.

We’ll be back in the studio mid-July to knock out a few more tunes for the “upcoming” full length. I use quotations, because anyone who knows us well enough to check this site from time to time knows that we are very pokey puppies. Err… Sparrows. We’re excited to have Matthew Shepherd on drums (from Dana Falconberry), and Lauren Gurgiolo helping out on guitars (Okkervil River).

Sparrows album artist and good friend Derek Van Gieson (Fantagraphics, the New Yorker) has recently started selling some of his original art work online. We’re all huge fans of his, and we think you should be too!
Here’s a link to his shop:
