NEWS // Gauntlet Hair Ends

We are sad to say that Gauntlet Hair has officially come to an end. Andy and Craig are two powerhouse musicians that we were more than lucky to have and very honored to be a part of our roster. As a band, they created some amazing music and put on some fantastic live performances that will be talked about for years. We are touched, but not surprised, by the fans’ emphatic responses on Facebook and Twitter and would like to echo their thoughts. Although we are sad to see them go, we know they will continue to innovate by creating music that will keep people talking and connect to new fans just like their first two albums with Dead Oceans.

So long and all the best of luck in your future, Craig and Andy, we’re excited to hear what’s next.

WATCH // Califone Debut Interactive Video for “Stitches” on Tumblr, Start Living Room Tour August 21st

In a unique approach to a music video, Califone worked with filmmaker Braden King and programmer Jeff Garneau using Tumblr to debut a beautiful and haunting interactive video of the new album’s title track “Stitches”. Garneau programmed the video to randomly pull images and animated GIFs from a previously selected set of Tumblr sites to provide a truly distinctive experience every time the viewer watches the video. Head over to Califone’s Tumblr HERE to find and experience the hidden video that Nate Auerbach, Tumblr’s Music Evangelist, calls, “deeper than an album jacket and more intense than a music video, because it is living and breathing.”

Read more about the video below with links to preorder the new album, Stitches, and upcoming tour dates.
