Totems Summer Tour- Top 5 Shows

We’ve been doing a lot of traveling this summer and we’re so lucky to have had the opportunity to take our album everywhere. When we released ‘Totems’, we all agreed to tour with it as much as possible and we’re glad to say that we were actually able to do that.


Top 5 – favorite shows so far:

5.) Spokane, WA


Volume: Inlander Music Festival.

Although the downtown area was packed and sometimes hostile, we had an amazing amount of people come to our show and it was really great to see some friends from KYRS again.



4.) Missoula, MT


Camp Daze.

Need we say more? The concert-goers and musicians of Missoula are one hell of a family to spend time with. We’re so glad to have had the opportunity to reconnect and meet with such fine folks.


3.) Portland, OR


This show was a match made in heaven, TBH. We thought the show itself was a perfect blend and the company was fantastic and gracious.


2.) Denver, CO


Treefort Day Party at the Hi-Dive.

This showcase was with our fellow Boise dwellers, Tisper and Thick Business, as well as our new friends from Portland, Helvetia and Tango Alpha Tango. We had a rad time at that festival in general and it was so great to stay with our Denver friends… (Flaural, we love you!)



1.) San Francisco, CA


The Damn Fanatics and Gentle Spirit at The Make-Out Room.

San Francisco made our feet sore and our hearts warm. We now have some *very* dear friends in The Damn Fanatics and Gentle Spirit ❤ Not to mention, we completely fell in love with the Make-Out Room (it looks like a fairy prom night in there!)… We honestly can’t wait to go back.

If you haven’t had the chance to catch our set, please do! We’d love to meet you all on the road.

With much love,

Updates on June Tours



Montana – Washington – Oregon. What a mini tour.

All of us at MP had an amazing time at Camp Daze 2k16 and Volume Music Festival this last weekend!

It’s always nice to tour through such beautiful areas of the Northwest…

One of the biggest things that seems to prove itself time and time again is that music communities MATTER. There were so many instances where we were overcome with gratitude because of the kindness that came from the people involved in our shows. Nickolas, Foster, Andrea, Kaleb, and everyone else behind Camp Daze were the absolute sweetest. All of the the people we met through The Inlander and Volume Music Festival were super nice and accommodating, too. As for the people of La Grande… We almost didn’t have a show at the Hide Out… but, because of these amazing communities created around music, La Granders banded together (thank you Jeff!!!) and had us play at “The Big Green Barn”, a barn that has hosted amazing bands including the likes of Built to Spill.

Videos of these performances will be posted soon!

We’re stoked to be embarking on another tour this month through:

6/19 – Portland, OR – The Know

6/21 – Eugene, OR – Old Nicks

6/22 – Ashland, OR – Club 66

6/24 – Oakland, CA – Oakland.Secret

6/26 – San Francisco, CA – The Make Out Room

6/28 – Reno, NV – Studio On 4th

Totems Album Release


Marshall Poole releases their debut album ‘Totems’ on Defendu Records November 7th at The Watercooler with friends Lounge On Fire and Flaural (CO), featuring guest appearances by keyboardist Seth Graham and drummer Wade Ronsse.

Marshall Poole will debut their album as ‘Totems’, careening the belief of inner spirits. For the members of Marshall Poole, ‘Totems’ was created in order to deal with some of their inner demons. “It’s gonna be pretty dark,” says bassist/vocalist Melanie Radford. “We went through a lot of personal turmoils this last spring and summer so we’re releasing something angrier, weirder, and much heavier this time.” The album recalls estrangement, fear, anger, and loss wrapped in a fast, psych-rock hurricane.

Recorded at Tonic Room Studios, ‘Totems’ poses as a new sound for Marshall Poole. From small-town Caldwell Idaho, the trio has held their own in the growing Boise music scene, but ‘Totems’ may be a new directional pull for rock n’ roll in Boise.

Special guest openers will be Boise freaky funkers Lounge On Fire and Denver psych rockers Flaural.
