New Mates Of State in May!

My wife and I are excited about this one! We got married last October and we used "Like U Crazy" from their last album, Bring It Back, in our wedding. We can't wait to see them tour again. Ok, I will stop freaking out like a twelve year old. Go to to sign up to receive an email when you can pre-order the new album.
"Though conceived as a duo, Mates of State have never failed to generate a trademark wall of sound built on dozens of varied voicings of keys, drums, and alternately lushly-layered and playfully-dueling vocals. On re-arrange us they move beyond these boundaries (their traditional organ sound is a distant memory, replaced with organic piano and synth sounds) with additional instrumentation — not to mention a quantum leap in songcraft apparent on instantly indelible gems like now, jigsaw and get better. Throughout re-arrange us, Kori's piano and the emergence of both Mates' lead vocals from their trademark harmonizing signal the next stage of Mates of State's evolution." (taken from:

Ten songs: get better / now / my only offer / the re-arranger / jigsaw / blue and gold print / help help / you are free / great dane / lullaby haze
