Vampires. Does there exist a species more mysterious, slandered, glorified and misunderstood? It was 2006 when we last checked in with vampire biographer and dad-joke comedian Eric Elbogen (he's mostly been devoting time to his slacker-guitar / synth-pop 'band' Say Hi). Back then he'd taken his exposé deep behind the trenches of post-Buffy vampire life (death?) with his record Impeccable Blahs. There, he found a culture ripe with individuals as complex, moral, stupid and romantic as their human counterparts. They just happened to get their sustenance from drinking blood.

But that was before the complications the Twilight series introduced. Suddenly, things were different. Garlic wasn't really a thing any more, mirrors couldn't be relied upon to not have reflections and, gasp, apparently the cloud cover of the Pacific Northwest was enough to give them a we-can-now-walk-around-in-the-sunlight loophole? Let's just say things didn't really sit quite right with the vast majority of blood suckers. They rebelled. Subtly at first. But, before us humans knew it, they'd infiltrated the very fabric of our society.

Bleeders Digest is their story.

Say Hi premieres track at Stereogum 24 Jul 2015

Stereogum has premiered album standout "The Grass Is Always Greener" from the forthcoming Say Hi record Bleeders Digest (out September 18) saying the track "maintains Elbogen's singular sound, matching smart, concise guitar and synth figures with tight grooves and understated vocals that hit like decrepit lullabies".

Say Hi's Australian tour with Death Cab for Cutie starts July 26. His US tour with Telekinesis starts October 1 at The Shakedown in Bellingham, WA.
