[Orig. post: 11.16.09, 15:57:53] Just received some rather disheartening news. It seems Young Coyotes,

With the outfit's relative inactivity over the past year -- spurred by drummer Adam Halferty's membership in the touring version of 3OH!3 -- the substantial buzz surrounding Young Coyotes has died down significantly, and given frontman Zach Tipton's recent foray into solo territory with his project I Am the Dot, the news doesn't look promising. In the meantime, you might want to make plans to be at the Bluebird next Tuesday night, and if you haven't already pick up both EPs. It will be a monumental shame if this band does end up parting ways. With as big of an impact as it made on the scene almost immediately with its pristine brand of primal pop, Young Coyotes seemed poised for big things. Stay tuned for more hopefully good news.
