Our 5th album “Corpse In The Mattress Motor Lodge” has been out for a few months now and the response from everyone has been amazingly supportive. You can buy it through Bandcamp, Deporter Records, CD Baby, Coast City Comics, Bull Moose, iTunes, and all other quality music distributors.
We’ve also made the decision to allow anyone to download our back catalog from bandcamp for whatever price you want. That’s right! Our 4 other albums plus all our demos and compilation tracks are available for whatever you think they’re worth. Happy downloading friends!!
Our next show is on Blood Thirsty Thursday, February 25th at Empire with Spidermilk and The Murder Weapon. Amazing show on a school night!
Our long-awaited, 5-year-in-the-making, concept album will be released on November 28, 2015 by Deporter Records. It will be a 2 CD set with a radio-play and the soundtrack. We’ll be playing a show at Geno’s in Portland on November 28 to celebrate.

In other Bees news, we recently got to perform on 207. Everyone at the show was amazing and I don’t think they’ve ever seen anything quite like us. We got to play the Coffee song while all wearing costumes. Happy Halloween!!! Check out what we did here.
But that’s not all! Right now you can get the Coffee song for free! It’s up for pay-what-you-want on bandcamp. Soon, preorders will be up for the disc too. It’s a good time to be a bee.
A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of sharing the stage with the legendary Seattle band Mudhoney. It was an amazing experience and want to thank Mark Curdo from WCYY for putting on the show, the Asylum for hosting it, and of course Murcielago and Mudhoney for playing with us. Here’s a pic of Boo and Ed with Mark Arm, in all his glory:
We also have a couple shows coming up in August, so get out and see us!:
August 7, Genos, Portland, with Vinyl Cape and the Seasonal Disorders

So we’ve got some good news to report! We’re still doing video shoot for our song “Troma Institute of Technology” on October 21st at Genos Rock Club. You get to wear a costume and have a great time. We’ll be playing a full set of tunes after the shoot, and it’s completely FREE!!! Facebook event here for more info.
We’ve also got some bad news to report! We thought that Lloyd Kaufman would be able to make it to film the thing in person, but he’s been called away to do a big shoot for Youtube and won’t be able to make it. To hear the whole thing, watch Boo and Tristan explain it:
To learn the new song, go to our secret bandcamp page here to listen and download it:
We are very excited that we will be joined by none other than the amazing and talented Lloyd Kaufman of Troma Entertainment to shoot a video for one of the songs we did for their upcoming movie Return to Nuke ‘Em High, Volume 2.
It’s at Genos. View the facebook event here.
We also have some other shows coming up, 9/26 and 11/15:
In May of 2004 we played our first show ever. It was at Geno’s in Portland with a band we share a bass player with called Pigboat. Here’s the proof:
10 years later, in May of 2014, it’s simply amazing that both bands are still together. We’re going to celebrate by having a show on 5/10, again at Genos:
Join the Facebook event here. We hope you can make it. It’s going to be an amazing time!
We don’t play a lot out of Maine, but tonight we make the drive down to Portsmouth to Tromafest! Can’t wait! More info here.
