We are honored to be a included in a new music series developed by Barking Irons, one of the most innovative clothing designers in New York. Produced in partnership with Phearcreative, the series is called The Collect, which features acoustic sets and interviews with musicians, who are first lured to the Barking Irons studio on Bowery with fine spirits and finer threads. We tried on some great BI apparel (Erin sported a prototype dress), and chewed the fat about country music, long-johns, and Hee-Haw, while somehow managing to down an entire bottle of Fernet Branca. We then played a paired down, acoustic set, with only Bug, Bru, Roadblock, and Metallbelly. The whole concept is awesome and we had a hell of a time. Other artists who participated in the series include Justin Townes Earle, Bobby Bare Jr., and more.

It’s good to see the Irish and Italians finally working together.
