***UPDATE! Thanks to all who bid on our auction, we are thrilled to have raised $3000 for CARE, which we will match for a total donation of $6000! Thank you all for helping us with the relief efforts in Nepal***

We are auctioning off this Baby Taylor guitar to raise money for earthquake relief in Nepal. All funds raised will be matched by us and donated to CARE who are doing amazing work on the ground in Nepal.

This was our dressing room guitar while we were touring Heartthrob around the world, so it has been played quite a bit by both of us. It is not autographed, so we will also throw in an autographed copy of our Record Store Day release, Live at Zia Records. It will also come with a Taylor gig bag.

Go here to place a bid.

Thank you for helping us raise money to help the people of Nepal!

A couple years ago we co-wrote a song called Drove Me Wild with a very talented duo called Sultan and Ned Shepard. The song ended up making our record Heartthrob and was one of our favourites to play live (see video on youtube of Tegan high kicking at the start of it every night). You might also recognize their names from our Closer Remixed record because they had an amazing remix included there as well!

We love them!

So! We’ve released a video for a new song we collaborated on called, Make Things Right. It’s available now on Beatport!

Enjoy the song and the video! And get your high kicks ready!

***UPDATE: MISSED RECORD STORE DAY? YOU CAN BUY ‘LIVE AT ZIA RECORDS’ HERE! ***

We love Record Store Day and have put together a really cool piece of vinyl for it this year!

Over the years we have done a bunch of in stores at Zia Record Exchange, and in September of 2013, we recorded our live performance at the Thunderbird location, in Phoenix, AZ. We have been holding onto it for something special, and this is it!

Tegan and Sara Live at Zia Records
I Was A Fool
Back In Your Head
Goodbye Goodbye
Call It Off

Our art director Emy Storey took the opportunity to use one of our favourite Lindsey Byrnes images from our Heartthrob photo shoot for the cover. We were very close to using it for the cover of Heartthrob, so we are really happy to get an opportunity to use it for RSD!

The vinyl will be a 12 inch LP, cut at 45rpm in opaque aqua blue. Zia locations will exclusively have a limited amount of opaque grimace purple!

We also designed a special tote bag, the perfect size for toting around your RSD scores. We’ll let you know where you can get the album and the bag as soon as we have info! In the mean time, keep counting down the days to April 18, Record Store Day 2015!

We asked our Superclose Society Card Holders to help us decide which patch should be the newest addition to the SCS collection and we have tallied up the votes!

We’re excited to say Bategan is the champion – beating out both Feelings Report and SKQ Reads! For those of you who aren’t familiar, Bategan loves donuts and helped us write Sainthood.

Starting today, you can pre-order the new Bategan patch at here. As a special thank-you to all our SCS Card Holders who helped us pick the design, they will get 15% off their entire purchase in our Canadian online shop when purchasing the Bategan patch!

It’s really helpful to have our community of Superclose Society Members who care as much about these decisions as we do. If you want the chance to help us with future contests and votes, become a Superclose Society Card Holder by purchasing an SCS Standard Kit at here!

Everything is Oscars… or Oscars is Awesome!! http://www.teganandsara.com/everything-is-oscars/ http://www.teganandsara.com/everything-is-oscars/#comments Thu, 15 Jan 2015 13:38:36 +0000 admin http://www.teganandsara.com/?p=6275 [read more...]]]>

We couldn’t be more proud to see Everything is Awesome has been nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song!! This was the first time we contributed to a track that was specifically written for a film, and it’s been a real thrill to watch it become such a popular song with people of all ages! On our tour dates last fall with Katy Perry we performed a version of it, and the venues would light up as kids and their parents recognized the song and all chimed in on the chorus. We felt like we were part of something really special.

A huge congrats to the writers Shawn Patterson, Joshua Bartholomew, Lisa Harriton and our friends The Lonely Island, and producer Mark Mothersbaugh. And an even bigger thanks for asking us to be a part of it!
