DAVID BAZAN “HAPPY XMAS (WAR IS OVER)”

The exclusive adaptations of John Lennon & Yoko Ono’s “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” and Wayne Coyne’s “Say It Isn’t Greensleeves (A Change at Christmas)” continue Bazan’s Yuletide tradition in a style totally his own.

This 7″ is pressed on blue w/ white haze (200 copies), gold (400 copies) and clear (400 copies) vinyl! Records are available for pre-order now on the Suicide Squeeze website, and will be available in stores on November 3rd.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country.
