One year ago we reunited in San Diego for the first time since the start of the COVID pandemic to record a live-in-the-studio album. We had such a great time that weekend, and we think it’s reflected in the resulting tracks!

We recorded our favorite songs to play live, including Round Kid, Jen’s Cold and Nineteen.

The official release date is June 24, but:

On Dec 30th the singer of Buck-O-Nine, Jon Pebsworth, had a massive heart attack. We are very grateful he survived and will recover, but he needs our help. We’ve set up a GoFundMe for Jon and it explains things in more detail. If you can help out, great, and if not, please share with others. We started a GoFundMe using #jonscrazyheart for a social media hashtag.
