Limited Edition "Drinking Your Words" CDs for Sale

Back in January we ordered a bunch of CDs with our new single and B-Side "Drinking Your Words" and "Made of Light."

We have a few left and I am sick of mailing CDs to radio stations, so they are now for sale. Go here!

These are professionally printed CDs, with custom artwork, in a fancy jewel case. And, since we already bought the mailers, we aren't even charging shipping.

There are 15 12 of these left. They will never be made again, so pick one up now.

They make great Easter presents. What did you give up for lent? Replace it with this CD!

Buy one now.

We're Home!

The Drinking Your Words tour is closed for business.

We made it home, and are safe and sound. Wow.

Wow. Wow. Wow. Thank you to everyone who came out to shows, listened, danced, partied, hugged us, put up with our crazy jokes, gave us your floors to sleep on, and gave us kind words and encouragement.

All told we travelled about 4000 miles, through 17 states, in 10 days. Every single stop was special to us, and we came away from every single show feeling positive. There are amazing music/arts communities all over this country, and we felt honored honored to be a part of them.

We are a DIY band, and if you enjoyed the music and/or the show, there are two great ways you can help us:

First, you can share our music with your friends online! You can share the new "Drinking Your Words" video or this streaming link.

The next way to help us is to buy something! You can get some digital music on iTunes, or Bandcamp or sport a t-shirt or hoodie from our store.

Your support means the absolute world to us, and we are infinitely grateful for every single person who cares about live bands, indie music, or the arts community enough to check us out.

Until next time!
