Lantern Live at Shea Stadium

The People at Shea Stadium up in Brooklyn do a really cool thing where the record all the live shows that happen there and then post them to their website. The recordings they make are also pristine. We fortunately played the last show of the our tour there and were able to capture ourselves in full tour form. Tight, angry, loud, and fast after 5 weeks of being on the road. This is FULL THROTTLE right from the opening chords of a blistering take of "I Don't Know." I hope you enjoy it and those who haven't seen Lantern live, well I hope it more than inspires you to come on out to see a set.

Best and thank you to the kind folks at Shea Stadium. One of the best DIY venues I have had the pleasure of playing.

New Lantern/Dirty Beaches Bootleg for Free Download

There is a new live album available for FREE download off of our Bandcamp site. This time it's our collaboration with Dirty Beaches which took place in Brooklyn last spring. We made a tape of the bootleg which we sold out of on tour. Please feel free to spread it around and share it all with your friends - Download it and burn it to a cd to give to one of your friends for the holidays. We are really proud of the results considering how little time we had to prepare. The songs are quasi improvised and the final tune turned out to be a sort of spontaneous cover of Tom Waits' "Going Out West" - it wasn't our intention, it just sounded that way - Alex caught on though.
