We’re glad to report that we’ve completed the basics and overdubs on our new LP and the project is now in the mixing stages.

We recorded the whole thing in-studio with Ayad Al-Adhamy (Team Spirit, Passion Pit, Black Bell Records) at his studio Little Room NYC up in Greenpoint and the project is fantastic.  Its a very different record than our previous endeavors, but in a good way.  For example, I rip a slide solo with a PuffCo vaporizer pen.  Not sure if it was Berg’s or Ayad’s…but it was the one on the chair…I digress.

This is a very large record.  Its long.  It has a bit of story to it, and it’s pretty out there stuff.  If you want, we’ve uploaded some pre-prod tracks (done acoustically with sonic wizard John Siket) to our SoundCloud.  We’ll just embed em right down here…and…there we are!


Because of the project’s size and us being an independent band and all, we could use your help funding it. 


We’ve already raised over $3000 (which is amazing) but we need to clear about $10K to press it to vinyl, prep for summer tour (*spoilers*) and deliver it to you in the method which would be best for this piece of art we made/are making…so if you could, please donate today.

Once we get some mixdowns we’re ok with sharing, we’ll upload those too.

Love ya \m/

Ignition Festival: Chewburnitall in New Orleans

Very excited to announce we’ll be performing at the first ever Ignition Festival this year in New Orleans, LA.















The festival is curated by Mardi Gras’ infamous Krewe Of Chewbacchus and will be centered around sci-fi, themed as “Chewburnitall” (meaning there’s a giant wicker Chewbacca they plan to light on fire).  For a band who tours with the original trilogy on VHS as a good luck totem and have multiple Doctor Who and Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy tattoos, it goes without saying that we’re excited to be a part of this unique event.

Ignition Festival runs from October 14th – October 17th and tickets are available here (tier one tickets are already sold out).

[UPDATE] A Letter From Cherch

Greetings all,

Cherch here with a spot of news to drop.

As of last week we were ready to release another batch of tour dates for our spring run and   [believe you me, there is nothing we love as much as traveling to your cities and putting on rock and roll shows] around Thursday we were approached with some news that called for the immediate recalling of a few weeks of scheduling and reformation of our current routing.

Now, everyone is fine and in great health.  All is well.  Its just that sometimes [in life], there are personal matters that need to be taken care of and as decent humans we happily grant those courtesies.  We’re doing exactly that.

What that means, is that we can’t come at you for a fair amount of these shows as the Dollars.

What this means is, though we can’t all come at you: I will.

I understand that I’ve never done a publicized tour without my dudes [who knows...maybe a few will pop up along the way] and that some of the venues aren’t exactly stoked on handing a bill from a somewhat more-established act to one of its members but some of them have been pretty cool, retained the contracts and I intend on honoring as many as possible.  Also…these shows will still be awesome.

Now…onto the next thing –> The Bottom Dollars are not canceling every tour date and we will be at SXSW.

There are a few we can absolutely make it to and more that were in the confirmation stages that we can still honor over the next few months.


The following Dollars engagements are still on…

FEB 27  Beachland Ballroom & Tavern [Cleveland, OH]

FEB 28  Emporium Arcade [Chicago, IL]

MAR 19  SXSW — The Aquarium on 6th [Austin, TX]

MAR 21  SXSW — Stay Gold [Austin, TX]

MAY 1  Checkpoint Charlie’s **Three Sets** [New Orleans, LA]

MAY 5  Marlins **Two Sets** [Hattiesburg, MA]

MAY 6  Egan’s **Two Sets** [Tuscaloosa, AL]

MAY 7 Georgia Theatre **Two Sets** [Athens, GA]

MAY 9 Electric Maid [Washington, DC]

MAY 20 Brooklyn Bowl [Brooklyn, NY]


It’ll be sick.  Don’t worry.  See you out there!


Brian “Cherch” Cherchiglia
