THE PAPER AIRPLANE IDEA
September 1, 2014
Excited about the Summer In Abbadon tour in a couple days!
If you’ve seen us before, you know that we usually play pretty long sets and as SIA is only 10 songs long, we weren’t sure what else to play, so we came up with The Paper Plane Idea.
At the merch table at every show there will be felt pens and recycled paper on which you can write down whatever song you want us to play, fold it into a paper airplane, and throw it at us during any part of the set.
After we finish with SIA, we will pick from them randomly and play whatever they say (provided, of course, they it is one of the 43 or so songs we feel confident in playing).
We encourage people to bring them from home, use origami, or just be crafty in general!
See you in a few!

Pinback and Touch and Go Records team up to celebrate 10th anniversary of Summer in Abbadon with nationwide summer tour and more:
June 16, 2014
It’s been 10 years since Touch and Go Records released Pinback’s Summer in Abaddon, an alt-pop classic that drew widespread acclaim for the West Coast duo.
Hailed by critics worldwide and treasured by fans, Summer in Abaddon (called “surprising and mesmerizing” by Spin) was Pinback’s third album and its first release with Chicago-based Touch and Go Records.
The duo—which more recently released the critical hit Information Retrieved and made its network TV debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last spring—will gear up to perform Summer in Abaddon in its entirety when they tour across North America in September with Tera Melos supporting.
The album’s brilliance uncoils in layers. Rich with a mix of tunes that can be buoyant at times and melancholic at others; overall a hypnotic groove throughout.
“Pinback’s darkest hours have inspired their finest moment,” Pitchfork reviewed, Oct. 12,2004.
“Wrapping the sweetest melodies around uncertainty and sometime sadness, Armistead Burwell Smith IV and Rob Crow’s blend of warm and wistful is almost impossible to resist,” Andrew Carden of Mojo, January 2005.
In celebration of the album’s 10th Anniversary, Touch and Go will issue a limited edition of Summer in Abaddon on maroon HQ180 vinyl that will be sold only at the shows and through its website here.
