The Big Week (Thank You)!
Last Friday night we took to the stage at The Low Beat in our hometown of Albany, NY to celebrate the release of ‘Heart of Plaster’ and y’all didn’t disappoint. It was a most excellent evening of fantastic music, great fans, and good beer. Those in attendance caught the performance of 7 of the 10 new songs that appear on the new album, plus some fan favorites off our last 2 EPs. As always, we have to thank the openers The Strange Neighbors and The Brother Ghost (who filled in last minute) for bringing it that evening. It was a mighty night of rock n’ roll, and we have so many others to say thank you to here it would fill up an entire book.

We’ve also gotten a great amount of positive words and comments on the album, including an excellent review from UpstateLIVE Magazine:
Heart of Plaster “… eximplifies the band’s stellar musicianship, versatility, and range of emotion…” – http://bit.ly/1mXUYB7
As an independent band, we really appreciate all the love everyone has given us over the last 3 years. When you buy our records you are supporting us & helping keep us on the road. Your help makes all the difference to us, and means a great deal. Without our fans we are nothing. If you buy a physical copy from our merch store we will send you a signed copy of the album along with some other cool swag!
We’re still getting a ton of love on radio thanks to your requests! Our next single off the album is coming soon, so keep your ears peeled and your fingers dialing!
Finally, our big week continued with the release of Metroland’s 2014 Reader’s Poll results where we were named one of the best local rock bands in the Capital District! More back-slapping and handshakes are in order for everyone who cast their ballot for us. This one is for our dawgs! Check out the full results here: http://bit.ly/1gcg0V7
