We have decided to join the 20th Century and begin keeping a Blog.
We will try to write interesting things that y'all want to read. A random assortment of Dutch oven recipes, hidden campsites, Landry's new art projects, and all the rad people we meet on the road.
OUR NEW BLOG IS AT THE BOTtoM OF THE TOOL BAR ENTITLED:
LIVING IN A POSTCARD...
It's a concept that predates the World Wide Web. It's some sort of Walt Whitman wanna be Jack Kerouacian compulsion to drive through the night and sleep on the side of the road with cars rushing past, afraid of bears, insane truckers, ghosts, or whatever, so that you can wake up in the morning and discover something new and distant, and feel like perhaps for that moment all your rushing was worth it, because you are living inside a postcard.
We woke up this morning and finally after 100,000 miles on the road we are famous!
Thanks world wide web...

"The Lonesome Heroes are a wandering lot, so maybe we shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be too surprised that it took them about three years to make a video for Ã¢â‚¬Å“DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t Play to Lose.Ã¢â‚¬Â We give them a pass on the old tune, though, because the video is pretty great. How can you not love two adorable kids escaping from some hardcore bikers and bouncers?! ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s like Goonies II: Goonies in the City!...
We are working on a new record this month due out in March for SXSW. Then, we'll be on the road again in February working our way west to California, and home via Wyoming. Here are a few of our upcoming tour dates for February and March 2010. If you have any suggestions of where to play along the way, we'd love your input. See you on the back roads of Americia soon, and Keep on Keepin' on.

Howdy Y'all, The New York City music video release and our east coast tour home were amazing. Despite breaking down in Nashville for 5 days, Helga, the star of our music video, made it home safe, and we even got a good country song out of it all. Thank you to everyone that gave their time to help us with the music video, and a special thanks to Margo and Jeremy from Buffalo Clover and Lilly Hiatt for helping us out in Nashville, and to all the guys at Athens Imports for keeping the dream alive.
