Welcome to the Twin Shadow True Story tour, As some of you may know, My father and I have written stories for every stop on the tour, True Stories from our own lives and the people around us. I'm always trying to keep the tours that we do special, I think that, while we live our lives in unison, digitally, and without lines and boundaries on the internet (which I think is amazing), we are still very much from different places. The Line that divides Florida from Georgia is still a hard line. I feel it when I talk to some one from my side of that divide. So I'm asking fans to write stories about where they are from or where they currently call home. Tell us about a place in your town that holds one of your stories. This isn't a tweet, really tell me in as many words as you want about the time you stole money from the cash register at your old coffee shop, about the time you had your first kiss out the back of the cinema. Tell me everything about those places, and when we come to your town or city we will try to visit these places, and take some photos there. Once I get all the submissions, I'd like to pick the best ones, publish them on my tumblr and read the stories on my soundcloud Podcast called FORGET RADIO.
I love our short form world, but this is a call to talk a bit more about the details that make your lives unique from mine. So often we (bands) roll through your towns with a stop at a grocery store, a gas station, and if you are Twin Shadow your local arcade and go cart racing complex. We wanna know about the rivers you visit, the book stores you love, the bars you drink at, the fields you've slept in. This is my wish, let it be known, let it be done.

Mexico, We meet again!
Remembering all the awesome fan art made in 2012. Ya boy is in Watercolors.
While out on our Ton Up Tour a fan approached me with a heavy observation and question about the song 'The One.' He said, "George, I am confused by the lyrics in your songs on Confess, particularly on the song 'The One,' you seem torn between honoring some one who cares about you and someone you can't have, the whole record seems like this, don't you think it's confusing? I mean, you are telling someone there is something wrong with them but you'll go with them anyway?"To which I replied, "Yes its very f****** confusing isn't it?" As I thought about it weeks after and while making this video, I realized again what Confess meant for me. It was a chance to be totally honest and say that nothing is perfect; but faith in someone who gives themselves to you is very real and very beautiful. That all this bizarre love we have has to go someplace, and it can be as simple as pushing it against a person who is constant.I thought about how a lot of my songs often get lumped into being just about a girl, (which may be so in this song) but what about the other constants in my life? My old friends in New York and my new friends in LA, I thought, they are "the ones" as well. The ones who are always ready to jump back in where we left off when I go on these long tours and disappear from the face of the earth.I turn up on their doorsteps, we ride motorcycles, act a fool, drink too much, dance all night , watch movies on my couch.. All without question, like not a beat missed. I throw my love to them. I hope you do the same with the people you find close.
Happy Holidays from Twin Shadow to you and yours
