New Tour T-Shirts

Santiago Uceda has made us a brand new T-Shirt. Tender Loving Empire printed them on super soft American Apparel shirts with a cool fade from Silver to Black. They're available from us in unisex sizes X-Small to X-Large. If you missed us on our summer tour, these are the very same shirts we had out there! Get one while they last!

Summer Tour Dates!

This being the first day of the summer season of 2009 I felt it appropriate enough to send you all an e mail detailing the 21 day tour of California, Oregon, Washington and Idaho that we - The Grown Children- will embark upon next week.

It all starts with two really fun shows in Portland. The first being this Friday at the new Mississippi Studios on June 26th with the samba/african beats of Chicago's Occidental Brothers Dance Band International and ex Neutral Milk Hotel popsters Ross & The Hellpets. We'd love to see you there. We'll be debuting a new song that night that I am very very excited about!

Also if you have any friends/enemies/acquaintances/family/exes in any of the below cities, please let them know that their night or at least their mood will be radically altered for the better after having witnessed one of our live performances.
