We Have Broken Up

Hi Everyone,

Pygmy Shrews are no more. Thank you so much to everyone who came to our shows and listened to our records. Thank you also to all the amazing bands we played with.

Here is where you can find us as individuals:

Alexander plays in Animal

Tia plays in Queening

Ben plays in Zs, Hubble and The Men

Thanks to Ben and Alexander, I love you guys and it has been a privilege.


We're going on tour again, this time with our buddies The Men. It'll be a short one but a good one, if you're in the Midwest take a gander at our dates up above and come hang, we can build a bonfire and share stories from the wild days of our early 20s.

We've been working on putting together a tour-only cdr for our November dates, of b-sides and outtakes and alternate versions and a handful of covers, with artwork by our own Tia McVincent and Xander Perrelloid. It's called Ass Fajita, are you interested?

Also, we're going to have new vinyl soon! Very very happy to announce that the lovable Jacks (that being Jack Buxton and Jack Kramer) over at Jack Shack Records will be putting out our "Nobody's Fucking Anybody" 7-inch in the new year, along with a slew of killer fuckin records from other local jammers like Call Of The Wild, Foster Care, and another bangin Pampers 7-inch. Keep yer eyes peeled, ripened, and ready.
