It’s also something that stands as a bit of a pinnacle for our band.”“You release that first record and it’s so well embraced, but you’re always trying to get that magic back, I think,” he added. “We’ve done well, certainly, but the fervour that happened around ‘Oh, Inverted World’ we never quite reached again.

It’s a special moment when you’re a new band and you’ve got what was apparently kind of a new sound. This record symbolised a very special moment in my life, a watershed moment for sure.”The ‘Oh, Inverted World’ anniversary tour will begin in San Francisco in mid-July and run through the whole of August before finishing up in the band’s hometown of Portland on September 16.See a trailer for the tour and a full list of dates below.
