The Boggs Summer Back East, August In New York (Come Celebrate! YAY!) Tuesday, Aug 7th At Mercury Lounge With Handsome Furs
“Forts” Out Now on Gigantic Records
“Arm in Arm" (Shy Child Remix) Single Featured in the latest Rockstar Games trailer for Grand Theft Auto IV titled "Looking for that Special Someone"
PITCHFORK MEDIA [7.1] : “Forts is a combustible concoction of hand-claps, knee-slaps, Bo Diddley beats, shuffling feet, clinking cowbells, and chain-gang chants that suggests a band perpetually on the verge of breaking down but having too good a time to notice the smoke seeping out fromunder the hood.”
TIME OUT NEW YORK..."a brooding postpunk outfit in the raucous mode of the Birthday Party or The Mekons”, “..has matured eight decades within the course of five years."
BILLBOARD - ’Forts’, "a batch of post-punk rock tunes with narrative lyrics, a flurry of raw noises and what sounds like a runaway marching band."
