Wow, this year is just flying by so far. I can't believe we haven't updated anything since December! We are working hard on new songs and hope to be back in the studio recording something by the end of the summer. While we're busy recording we're not playing a lot of shows but we had a few offers we just couldn't say no to. We will be playing at Les Tassel Parkin Cascade, MI on June 26th, its an outdoor, all ages, free show. We'll have more details as soon as we can and we'll update our shows page.

We were absolutely floored when we were contacted by the Grand Rapids Symphony asking if we would consider being their "opening band" at two of the summer Picnic Pop concerts. Of course we said yes! To make it even better, the two nights we will be joining them they will be performing all ABBA songs. Obviously this show is not going to be free, tickets are available from the GR Symphony site, but it will be all ages and outdoors!

I think we've finally recovered!!! Its been a few weeks since we got back from England and we are totally wishing we could head back. We had such a great time and we met so many wonderful people who made our tour one to remember. We have some pictures up if you want to see them, you can click here or go to our photos page. We don't have any plans for the rest of the year other then enjoying the holidays, but check back with us early in the new year since we're working on finalizing a few events in Grand Rapids.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

If you haven't seen it yet, or saw it and couldn't believe it, our song La Ti Da is being used in the new Target ads that started airing on Sunday. We haven't been able to find it online yet to link to, but you can download an mp3 of the whole song on our listen page. We have also been adding more dates to our fall UK tour, which can now officially be renamed a European tour since we will be starting everything off in Scandinavia before our UK shows.

30 Aug 2007 - Ripley here we come!
We've been busy in Icicle-land getting a few things lined up for this fall. We're still working on a lot of stuff, but what we can share right now is we are heading to the UK this fall and the show that started it all will be Indietracks on Dec 1st, at the Midland Railway, Butterley station! Tickets went on sale this week and you can get them from the indietracks website. As long as we'll be out of the country, we're hoping to line up a few more shows over the course of a few weeks so we're definitely not done announcing our fall shows!!!
