First of all, thanks to all of our wonderful fans, friends & family who came out to the album release party for ‘Years’ this past Friday at Amos’ Southend. It was truly amazing and we’ll never forget it – thanks to all of you! It seemed like everyone left with a copy of the album – hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do!

‘Years’ is now on iTunes! Update your album art if you’ve already imported the CD…and GO BUY IT IF YOU HAVEN’T…though we’d prefer you get it in person OR from our Bandcamp. We’re personally quite fond of the album art and always enjoy holding a CD package in our hands.

OR type in our name in the iTunes Store!

We made the TOP 6!

Thanks to all of you, we’ve made the TOP 6 in the 106.5 The End Great Taste Music Speed Street Competition! We couldn’t have done it without you – and won’t be able to move further without you either! The Semifinals and Finals (if we move on) are both “battle” style shows that take crowd support heavily into consideration.

The Semifinals will be on FRIDAY 4/6 at The Saloon at the NC Music Factory. We wanna see you, we need to see you, so come on out and get a pre-CD release taste of BKTF!

Can’t wait for 4/6 – and really, thank you so much again!

March 26, 2012 @ 12:43 am

Hi all!

We’re working super hard on putting the final touches on the album. Artwork for the new album, shirts, stickers and posters is due Tuesday. All of the master tracks for the album are due a week from today. This is an amazing time for the band. We’re also Top 12 in the 106.5 The End Great Taste Music Series Competition to play the Coca-Cola 600 Speed Street Festival. We’ll know today if we made the Top 6. If so, get ready to come support us in the battle shows!

We’ll keep you posted on everything…make sure those calendars are marked for Friday, April 20th at Amos’ Southend in Charlotte for the CD release!

We met our KICKSTARTER goal!

February 1, 2012 @ 12:56 pm

Thanks so much to all of you! We met our Kickstarter goal, so our project will be funded. This means that we’re able to finish our NEW ALBUM on time, which means you get it sooner, and we get to get on the road to all of you quicker!

41 people backed the project and they’ll all be receiving the rewards available at the level in which they pledged. It’s a very exciting time for the band, and all of our fans and friends!

We’ll keep you posted on dates – we’re currently working on booking the CD release party and upcoming regional dates to support the album.

Love all of you very much! Spread the word about “Madison” & “Stay” being up for free on the site – they won’t be up much longer!
