Here’s a teaser video for their new single “Cellars”
Last year I left FYF Fest early because the bathroom lines were insane. It was dark and there were trees everywhere, but in some states you can end up on the sex offender list for public urination so I felt it best to head home. If you’d asked me last year if I’d be returning for FYF 2014 I would have said Hellllllllllll Nooooo. But it’s 2014 and there I was.
FYF Fest is like one of your crazy rich friends that doesn’t know what to do with their money. They know they want to throw a big party, you know you like parties, but you also know that this crazy rich friend is not that great at throwing parties. However, there will be a sweet buffet. Maybe they got the In N’ Out truck. Maybe the Workaholics guys will be there. Are you not going to go to your friend’s party? Are you going to miss meeting the Workaholics guys because you can’t stand in a bathroom line and you’re too afraid of ending up on a list to simply run outside and pee in the backyard?
