Spanish Prisoners don't need to sell cookies and kitten calendars anymore — they have a van AND more tourdates

Remember Spanish Prisoners, those dream pop charmers from Brooklyn who were trying their damnedest to raise enough money to buy a tour van? Well, after weeks of going door-to-door selling homemade sweaters and singing Hall & Oates songs on street corners, they’ve finally reached their $5000 goal — enough to buy the coolest fucking tour van you’ll ever see. They might even paint it with kittens and sea creatures. They’ve announced their tourdates too — see if you can catch those whippersnappers breezing through your town.

When they weren’t knitting or crafting or painting, Spanish Prisoners found time to toss together “Downtown Chicagoland,” the third single from their album Gold Fools. It includes two rad alternate versions of the album’s last track, and you can download it for free via Bandcamp. And don’t forget the new video for “Know No Violence” below, a little something for fans of snowy forests and geometric sweaters.
