Gaining traction over the years from sharing bills with touring acts The Shivas and Spaceface to beloved locals like The Voluptuals and The Curls -- avid show goers may have noticed Faux Furrs lying low this summer.

Original members Ryan Deffet (vocals, guitar, harmonica) and Ryan Shuck (drums) welcomed new additions Lena Rush (bass) and Ryan Nolen (guitar) enthusiastically. After countless jam and tracking sessions, Faux Furrs decided the time was right to get back into the swing of things.

Taken from a puppet's perspective, "Timmy's Vacation" is a bright, lively song with video footage shot over a year. Living up to the DIY mentality - check out the video shot, directed, and edited by Ryan Deffet and Ryan Shuck below.
