Though our official release won't be until June, we're throwing a couple of killer CD release parties in Portland and Seattle next weekend, and we hope to see you all there! This will be the first time that we have the CDs available for general sale.

Mayberry cover art / SOB with Drag the River / Win a Live in Seattle DVD!
We wanted to start this off by debuting the cover of our new album, Mayberry!
We're putting the finishing touches on the recording of the album this weekend, and then we'll dive headfirst into mixing and mastering. If you haven't already, you can pre-order the album via our Kickstarter fundraiser for the album here:
We've gotten excellent responses from our awesome fans so far, and as we have just a fortnight left in our fundraiser we're doing a final big push. We're very proud of what we've done with this record, and we can't wait to debut all these new songs for you.
As an extra incentive for y'all to help get the word out about our fundraiser, we're going to be giving away a copy of our Live in Seattle DVD to one of our great fans that shares our Facebook post about the Kickstarter campaign. All you have to do is visit our Facebook page and share any of our recent posts about the Kickstarter campaign. If you share one of those posts, you'll automatically be put into a drawing to get the DVD. On the last day of our fundraiser we'll pick a name at random to win! Simple as that!
Thanks again to all of your support, and we can't wait for you all to hear this songs. We know it might be a cliche, but we really do feel that this is the best album we've ever put together.
We've been very very fortunate over the years to have the support of our most excellent fans. And we could really use that support again. We're finishing up our new album, Mayberry, scheduled for release in May, and we've set up a Kickstarter for our fans to pre-order the album and help us raise some funds to release and promote it. There's a bunch of cool extras you can score in addition to the new album, so check it out and help out if you can. Tell your friends! We're forever grateful to all of you. Here's the link to check out the project:
We are very excited about the release, and can't wait to share the album with you. In the meantime, we've got a few killer shows coming up here in the Pacific Northwest (Portland, Seattle, and Bremerton) with our good buddies Drag the River. We'll definitely be rockin' songs from the new album, so don't miss the chance to catch some of the new tunes!
Next Wednesday, Feb 6th here in Portland, we'll be sharing the stage once again with our old friends from Denver CO, Slim Cessna's Auto Club!
If you haven't had the chance to see them yet, you're in for something here. Some of the finest songwriting around, and a show that never fails to deliver.
Opening up the show is our good buddies from here in Portland,Lewi Longmire & The Left Coast Roasters. Lewi's always been one of Portland's best, and we're stoked that he's on the bill with us as well, so get there early!
We go on second. We've been furiously writing and recording this new record, and we'll have plenty of new songs to roll out for the first time live here on Wednesday. Can't wait to let them out of the bag.
It seems quite a while since we've made a substantial update, so we thought it would be a damn fine time to check in and let y'all know how things are coming with our new album.
For the past few weeks we've been basically writing new songs and demoing them like mad. Mike's been on fire bringing the new tunes, and we've just been tearing them apart and putting them back together until we've got 'em nice and tasty, right where we want them. We've got some tracks laid down now that the arrangements are just about polished, and we're digging into the bulk of tracking in earnest over the next couple of weeks.
It's been a while since we've put out a new record, so we want to do this one right, and we're taking our sweet time to make sure we do. We appreciate all of your patience; we'll do all we can to make it worth the long wait.
In the meantime, you'll get to hear some of the new songs at a few shows we have lined up here in February and March! We've said it before and we'll say it again, there might not be a better place for music these days than Colorado, and we get the chance to play with 2 of the state's finest bands in the next 2 months.
Then in March, we get to hit the road for a couple of days with our old buddies Drag the River. These guys are responsible for just some of the best damn songs being written today, hands down. Check 'em out:
