Wrapping up an incredible year, Tanlines today release the self-directed, self-selfy video for "Not The Same" from their debut album Mixed Emotions (buy it here):
Also today, the "Not The Same" single went live on iTunes, featuring an extended version of the song (also utilized in the video) and a remix by DJ Spoko.
Next week, on Thursday December 3rd 6th, the band will make their late-night television debut on Jimmy Fallon. Set your TiVers.

Sirius XM subscribers should make sure they're tuned into XMU (channel 35) tonight at 9:00PM EDT to be assured of catching the premiere of an all-new session by Tanlines. If it's not possible to do so (I get it, we're all busy people), please be advised that the session will also air three more times this week:

Friday, 11/2 at 9:00AM EDT
Sunday, 11/4 at 12:00 noon EDT
Go forth and listen.
If you're like us (and I suspect you are), YOU LOVE MUSIC FESTIVALS almost as much as you love freedom. And there's so many that are close to our hearts. Matador's Lost Weekend. Atlamont. The Gathering Of The Juggalos. The Cornerstone Festival. I could go on, but you've probably got some illegal downloading to back to, so let's cut to the chase. Transmission Entertainment's 7th annual Fun Fun Fun Festival is happening in Austin, TX this coming November 2, 3 and 4, and we're thrilled to find out at the last minute announce Tanlines, Fucked Up, Paul Banks and The Young are all taking part.
Likewise, ATP America's "I'll Be Your Mirror" weekender (September 21-23) has been moved from Asbury Park, NJ to the glamorous West Side of Manhattan. The Lee Ranaldo Band and Chavez will be playing, along with a tremendous lineup of performers, none of whom are named Louis C.K. They'll all have their hands full measuring up to Richie Blackmore at California Jam (above) , but there's no harm in trying.
SUMMER IS HERE!...ok well it officially starts tomorrow but we can't contain our excitement so we're getting started a day early. Ahhh Summer, the season of extended daylight, backyard BBQs, road trips with friends, summer playlists, and Tanlines + Lemonade of course.
Apologies for that simple and obvious play on words. But honestly as sure as you're likely to have some tan lines after laying around the pool drinking a glass of lemonade this summer, we're convinced both bands (Tanlines and Lemonade) will be on your iPods/stereos while doing so. But don't take our word for it, Creator's Project said that Tanlines are "destined to become your summer soundtrack", and New York Magazine, Stereogum, and Refinery 29 couldn't agree more, naming "All Of Me" one of their Songs Of The Summer.
Anyhow since we'll be spending all summer together, it's probably a good time to get to know your Tanlines better. Courtesy of Creator's Project, click HERE for an intimate look at the band Tanlines, their recording process, how they formed, and much much more.
Also Tanlines will be performing across the US all summer long, starting tomorrow night with an official summer kick off show at the House of Vans in Brooklyn. A full list of summer tour dates is below.
