  • Yo La Tengo's Ira Kaplan on Marc Maron's "WTF"

Bob Odenkirk and David Cross stop by as well, though perhaps they were taped on different days.  I have no idea how Marc feels about people hanging out in his driveway waiting to talk, but I don't think I'd like it one bit.

Ticket links can be found below. News regarding HÆLOS' hotly anticipated full-length debut will be unveiled very soon, and we're (not so quietly) confident that Arthur, Dom and Lottie have delivered a deep, super-crafted knockout album that far surpasses the material you've heard to date.
