We start our official Nikki Nack tour tonight. To celebrate: OUR CRAZY NEW MUSIC VIDEO! 

NPR First Listen, "Water Fountain" Music Video, and Fallon

Hi folks,

I’m writing from the tour van: we are BACK AT IT.

As we count down to the new album release on May 5/6, we wanted to give you a heads up about some new things:

- Breaking sonic news: NPR will preview the entire Nikki Nack album today as a First Listen feature. You can stream the whole darn thing! Canadian friends, CBC is also streaming the full album here.  If you dig it, your purchase here helps us out a lot.

- We released the video for Water Fountain. Making this video with Joel Kefali was pretty much my childhood dream come true (plus Nate got to dress up like a dog chef): Watch here.

- We’re now on the road opening for Arcade Fire.  Wowza!  Tickets for some shows are still available if you want to see us do some crazy arena singing: Tickets

- Also, tickets are selling fast for our headlining shows. Don’t be sad when they sell out!  Get ‘em now!  tune-yards.com

Note that we recently added some shows: Denver on 5/28, Splendour in the Grass (Byron Bay, Australia) on 7/26, and the Austin City Limits Festival in October.

- Pre-ordering the album means you get BONUSES!  

I just signed about 10 million posters to include with the first 2000 pre-ordered albums (so I guess it was 2000 posters.) If you want the product of my mangled hands, as well as the MORE important product of our hard musical work, pre-order now. The poster’s pretty cool.

- Finally: we get to reunite with Jimmy Fallon! We’ll be playing The Tonight Show on May 9th.  

We are so very lucky to get to play this music for you – thanks for your support.

Thanks,

Merrill
