Hey folks,

We're headed home from Europe today and wanted to update you on some new dates!  We've added another string of East Coast dates in April. Starting at Mountain Stage in Morgantown, WV on April 15, this new leg include stops in New York City, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Nashville and more! Jesca Hoop will join us from April 17-27. Mountain Stage is on-sale now, and tickets for most of these newly added dates go on sale this weekend. You can check our tour page for the full list of shows. We begin the Stateside 2012 tour this Friday in Baton Rouge with Loudon Wainwright III.  Tickets are still available for most dates, but some are limited so if you're planning to come to a show, be sure to get yours soon.

We'd also like to remind you of the pre-order for our new album, Who's Feeling Young Now?, which was launched last week.  The album is available in both CD and vinyl formats, can be bundled with a special tee, and each order comes with a custom 5-coaster set illustrated by the great Matthew Diffee.  To give you another taste of the album, which will be out on February 14th, we have just released the second album preview video, featuring the new track "Clara."  You can watch the video and pre-order Who's Feeling Young Now? at punchbrothers.com.

Howdy, Punchkateers!

From the Two for Joy Cafe (not coffee shop, mind you) in Amsterdam, I bid y'all (English for "y'aal") a very happy Tuesday!  And what better way to celebrate this third-est of all days of the week than by pre-ordering your copy, be it on gargantuan* or compact disk, of our new album Who's Feeling Young Now? Now, this begs the question: who's feeling young now?  Well, as it happens, Paul Kowert is.

This also begs the question: what enticements have we, your Punch Brothers, commissioned to secure your pre-order?  A set of five beautiful paper coasters, illustrated by New Yorker cartoonist extraordinaire Matt Diffee, depicting Noam Pikelny in various states of repose?  No!  Rather a set of five beautiful Diffee-illustrated coasters depicting all five Punch Brothers engaged in various youthful activities!  Better still, the first 2500 sets WILL BE SIGNED!!!  BY US!!!!!!  AND TENNIS GREAT, MARTINA HINGIS!!!!!!!!!  This just in: Ms. Hingis is probably too busy drinking hot cocoa and checking the string tension on her rackets to sign even one set of said coasters, I'm terribly sorry.

To lessen this great disappointment, we're offering every pre-orderer a free download of "Movement and Location," which critics have described as being the most moving and locating song on Who's Feeling Young Now? Also, the technologically-savvy (Dutch for "savvy") pre-orderers among you will be able to download the entire record on Valentine's Day (better known internationally as Punch Brothers' New Record Comes Out Day).**  I'm off to De Kas for a traditional third-est day (Pickles calls it Tuesday) of the week lunch...hope to see you soon! Like maybe at one of our upcoming shows.

* Gargantuan Disk = Vinyl
