"Parent's Attic" on Gideon Coe BBC 6 Music

Last night, Carnivores received some more love from the BBC on Gideon Coe's show. He played "Parent's Attic" from the "Dressed For The Rain" Music Mule UK single (also featured on "If I'm Ancient"). Check that out for a limited time on the BBC's website

Tonight we're playing a The Junkyard in Gainesville, FL. Should be interesting, last night consisted of large jugs of beer, someone throwing a poor girls peacoat in a fire, shooting firecrackers at people(not us!), the ultimate warrior in the flesh, a sing a long to "Friends in Low Places", really sweet people from Seattle, and some band covering Refused??

* Following this we'll be leaving on a tour leading to SXSW, but first we'll be visting some of our favorite places to play like Memphis, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Las Cruces! We have some pretty rad SXSW shows and parties lined up too that we'll be announcing very soon....
