Weatherbox has had to drop off the remainder of their tour with Dikembe.
As those of you in Salt Lake City and Sacramento already know, we've had to drop off the remainder of this tour with Dikembe due to a medical emergency. As those in Kansas and Colorado witnessed, the train was coming off the tracks and despite everyone's noble efforts, the tour was unable to go on. We will be provide updates as soon as we know more ourselves...

By now it should be no surprised to you that we're huge fans of Dikembe around these parts. I first fell in love with the band when I heard its four-song debut, Chicago Bowls, a few years ago; its energized take on anthemic indie/emo/punk with heart-on-sleeve lyricism brought in many fans. So I'm beyond stoked to be premiering the remastered version of the band's fantastic EP - you can stream it in the replies or at the band's AP.net profile. After you hear how much better Chicago Bowls sounds, make sure to pre-order the 7" from Tiny Engines here.

Dikembe just released a video of them playing a demo of an untitled song that will be on their new record. The video is super cool: You can drag your mouse to spin around the room to watch the band play the song as if you were standing in the middle of the room. The band is tracking their sophomore LP now.
Thomas Nassiff on 04/05/13 - 09:55 AM
Dikembe's new music video for “We Could Become River Rats” can be seen on Alt Press.
Keagan Ilvonen on 02/14/13 - 10:30 AM
Oh boy, this exclusive will get your toes tapping and your blood pumping. We're excited to premiere the third installment of Count Your Lucky Stars 4-way splits - this one featuring Dikembe, Hightide Hotel, Jet Set Sail, and Monument. This stream will definitely snap you out of the winter blues and make you think of warmer futures. You can stream the split in the replies or each song individually at each band's respective AP.net profile. If you dig what you hear (and you will), make sure you pre-order the split here.
Drew Beringer on 01/30/13 - 12:26 PM
Tiny Engines will be releasing Dikembe's beloved EP Chicago Bowls on a 7" record on April 20th (natch). Details in the replies.

Our friends over at Light and Noise just released video of Dikembe's set at Fest 11. It's about 14 minutes in length and the band plays a bunch of songs, including a new one they're working on for their next album. You can view the set in the replies.

Dikembe and You Blew It! will be doing a short East Coast tour this winter (they hate me and won't come to the West Coast). Tour dates and info in the replies.

Our friends at Light and Noise TV have relaunched their site today with videos from Fest 11. Head to the replies to catch a set from Polar Bear Club and acoustic sessions with Fake Problems, Dikembe and You Blew It!. We'll be working with the guys to bring you more content in the future.
Adam Pfleider on 11/12/12 - 11:12 AM
Keeping with the Fest theme, Ryan Willems from Dikembe took the time the give those who are going to Fest some things to certainly keep an eye out for when in town this weekend. Hit the replies to read his blog about what you should spend some time doing while in and around Gainesville.

Edit: The chat is over. Thanks a lot to the dudes for chatting with us today!

Update: Come join the thread and chat with the dudes in Dikembe. Ask Steven (Driftwood352), Ryan (DJ Morph Prizzy), and Kenny (swws) about their upcoming record Broad Shoulders, as well as anything else. We'll also be streaming their new album during the duration of the chat, so don't miss out. Let's get weird.

I'm really excited AbsolutePunk gets to premiere a brand new Dikembe song today. Hailing from the sweaty state of Florida, this quartet likes to get weird with their brand of pop-punk/twinkly/whatever genre stuff. You can stream "Apology Not Fucking Accepted" in the replies. The song is off their...

Stream and download for free a new Dikembe song called "I Watch A Lot of Jackie Chan Movies" here. It comes from their debut full-length Broad Shoulders.

The album version of Dikembe's "That's How What Works" is now available to stream on Tiny Engines' Bandcamp page. Drew and I seem to be in agreement that Broad Shoulders is a record worth checking out.
