Friday 3/20 Buzz Blowout party, WRSI, new photos, and some pre-order news!

Hi guys,

Just wanted to drop a line to say that things are really picking up with the new album and we can’t wait to share it with you.

Beginning April 1 you will be able to pre-order the album via Bandcamp. And with every pre-order you will receive a download of our first single, “Come Back July.” Check back at for more details as the date nears. 

Also, we’re going to be playing a set this coming Friday, 3/20 at One Bar (the old Elevens on Pleasant St. in Northampton) and all the details are below. This is going to be our last local show until our album release at the Iron Horse on May 14 so come and rock out with us while you can. There are twelve bands and two stages. We go on at 9:05

We have a few tickets left to Friday’s show and if you purchase them through us we would be most appreciative. 100% of each band’s ticket sales go to the band and that is how we get paid. So if you’re in the Noho area and would like to arrange for a special delivery of any number of tickets please write to

Spring tour is shaping up and we’ve already posted a few dates on our shows page. If you have friends in Philadelphia, Raleigh, or DC then we’ve got some gigs they can come to. It will be our first tour and we’re super excited to get out there and play for some new sets of ears. 

Also, we are always grateful to have the support of WRSI 93.9 in our endeavors to share our music. And we got word just the other day that they have decided to add “Come Back July” to their rotation. If you’re not in the Pioneer Valley listening area you can listen anytime on their web player.  And I wouldn’t be my mother’s son if I didn’t tell you you can write them and request the tune if that’s something you’d like to do. E-quests can be made right here.   See, Ma? I learned well.  🙂

Also, we are thrilled to have been able to work with the esteemed valley photographer, Paul Shoul last week. He got some great pics of us that you’ll be seeing us use here and there (and hopefully in print in the very near future). They’re also up on the website so poke around and see what you can see.

Well, that’s pretty much it for now.

I’ll post again in a while with more details on the pre-order and all that. But suffice to say that this is going to be our busiest and best spring ever.

Thanks so much for being along for the ride. Really and truly.

Rock on, 


And on we go . . .
