Well this doesn’t suck! We’re playing the hallowed Echoplex this Friday, May 8! Supporting Rat Fist (members of No Age & Pissed Jeans), No Parents and Colleen Green. We play 8:45. $10 at the door.

Fuck you Facebook.

So, it seems that any time we mentioned our Record Store Day sale on Facebook (our primary method of communicating with folks who like our music), they reduce the audience of that post. Those posts were delivered to less than 80 people out of the 600 people who like our page. And we keep getting mail from people sad that they missed out on the orange vinyl. So we are gonna keep the item for sale for another month and try to get the message out via being tricky on the FB. If you want the orange & black Halloween version, it’s still in the store.


We ended up with some albums on orange and black vinyl due to a mix up at the factory. We are gonna offer them this weekend only, bundled with a Lude Tour shirt, so head on over to the shop and buy one if you want one.

For this weekend only we’re also dropping the price of the TRICOLOR vinyl to $15 shipped. That’s a damn good deal. Like, if we do say so ourselves.

New shows AT LAST

Hello there! We’re playing not one but TWO shows next week. Friday Feb 20 at Timewarp Records in Venice with Mr Airplane Man and Guilty Hearts, and Saturday Feb 21 at the Chinese New Year celebration on Chung King Road in Chinatown. See the show page for more details.

Welcome, new pals!

Hey there! We are getting lots of new folks coming by the site for the first time and we wanted to say hi, and also to let you know what’s what. We have a record. You can buy it on vinyl, or digitally. The vinyl records all come with a code for a free digital download! You can buy it in both those formats from us here, in our SHOP section. We also sell the record at our shows. We’ll be announcing some of those shows soon. If you prefer, you can order the record at your local record store. It’s distributed by Cobraside Distribution. And if it’s haute couture you seek, we are running low on shirts at the moment – L and XL in the webstore. We have a few mediums in the Liza and Warrior shirts, if you’re into those designs, shoot us a message at chewtoysmusic AT and we’ll tell you what we have left. We’ll have new shirts for sale at the shows in Feb. Thanks for coming by!!!

We got a shout-out on Towleroad too!

Today is a good day. We got a nice write-up over on too… looky¬†here if you don’t believe us.

We’re apparently a ‘band to watch’ this year!
