Just needed to tell every single person that came to a show how much this meant to us. We play better, sweated harder and bleed for these shows because Oaks community kick more ass than anybody out there.
The first leg of HEAL tour is in the books but we will never forget how this tour changed us for the better. We are far from done and will see you all soon!

Strand Of Oaks - “Pink Rabbits” (The National cover) (Official Audio)
“The most important song for me in recent memory. A lot of music is great but not important. Listening to “Pink Rabbits” became mandatory for me. I would associate this song with my lost month or months last fall. I unfortunately discovered that drinking potato vodka alone with the only the National to keep you company can be dangerous. I would find myself talking with angels and other crazy shit when this song was on repeat. Then I realized I don’t have to get fucked up to love this record. This song saved me and destroyed me simultaneously.” — as told to Magnet Magazine.
"I don’t look like St. Vincent. I look like a strange member of the hobbit tribe. But I was like, “Whatever. I’ve hidden behind things for too long.”
