Nearly two weeks ’til the Doomtree crew album drops. That’s insane. Get ready, because we’re not. We’re pleased to inform you that on Tuesday the 29th we’ll be playing an in-store at the Fifth Element in Minneapolis. It’ll be your first chance to cop the record (with a clean conscience at least) and we’ll be signing CDs and posters and report cards. You … Read More

We’re happy to say that 89.3 the Current and the Onion have both saddled up to help us ensure that the CD release show on August 1st is an unforgettable to-do. … Read More
Tickets for our record release/homecoming show are now available online from First Avenue. Dates for our imminent tour with Flobots are up on the shows page. Preorders of the album are still available. Don’t sleep. Thanks to everyone that came out for the video shoot yesterday. That was fun and educational. Bike Gang is dead. Long live Bike Gang.
So. In case you have not yet noticed, we are releasing a record on July 29th. It’s the first-ever official Doomtree Crew record, eight years in the making. It’s pretty good, too. Scratch that; it’s pretty really good. You can already preorder it directly from the Doomtree store, which guarantees that you’ll receive it on (or before) the 29th. Hells yeah. We are … Read More
Despite our continued insistence that this mp3 crap is merely a fad, we have relented and are pleased to announce that Doomtree False Hopes is now available from itunes (among other places). Now when you only want one DTR song you won’t have to wait for us to mail you a tiny CD. Amazing. We’ll continue to make new releases and old stuff … Read More
What up though. We’re keeping on with the myspace new/rare/bad innundation. It’s been fun, and should continue to be until we’re left with only the bad. Despite what you think, you’re not going to want to hear the bad about as much as you don’t want to view the footage of your own conception (which we will also not upload out … Read More
Yesterday marked the release the brand new album by our homies-for-life the Plastic Constellations. It’s a masterpiece, brother. Cop it now. We couldn’t be more excited to help these dudes celebrate their new baby and impending collapse this Saturday at First Avenue. The whole damn Doomtree crew will bring the ruckus, with additional ruckus to be brought by the Millionth Word (MK Larada’s … Read More

In case we hadn’t mentioned it, SXSW was dope. And what exactly was the dopest part? Body shots with Michael Stipe? Kelsey Grammer quietly singing the outro to Frasier over and over by himself at a hotel lobby piano? No and no. I think it’s safe to say that cooling out with Fab 5 Freddy was proooobably the highlight. Check it.
