Yes, We Are Rolling!
It’s time to bid a fond farewell to 2014. Sure, we do so with a little tear in the eye, and a lump in the throat, because it was an incredible time. More than anything, however, we’re focused on, and boundlessly excited about, the New Year to come.
We wrapped our international campaign around our 2nd album, ‘Are We Rolling?,’ in 2014. The album earned glowing reviews, and considerable airplay, from all over the world, and we’re very proud of this. We had the opportunity to share the stage with some incredible artists, and folks we’re proud to call friends, such as The Bottle Rockets, Dan Baird and Homemade Sin, Eric “Roscoe” Ambel, Mark McKay, Frog Holler, College Farm, Disciples of Agriculture, Luba Dvorak, Nate Schweber, Keith Christopher, Subduing Mara, and many others. In August, we hosted our very best Livestock event to date (and that’s really saying something), and we performed at Binghamton’s NYSEG Stadium before a B-Mets game (AA NY Mets). We stretched out and made new friends in new places (ex: Treehouse at 2A NYC, “Music on the Mountain” in Roxbury, Troy’s Ale House, Fitzie’s Binghamton, etc), and we returned to some of our favorite places/events like “Parade Day” at The Shire Pub in Delhi, The B-Side in Oneonta, Oktoberfest at The Andes Hotel (and “Cans & Clams). We recorded a live album with our good friend, Andris Balins, and shot tons of live video – none of which has been released just yet.
We’re beyond excited about the promise of the New Year to come. This November, over a long weekend, we laid down our very finest album to date, ‘Obey the Party,’ with our good friend, and rock-n-roll/Americana icon, Eric “Roscoe” Ambel (recorded, mixed, and produced by Roscoe). We will release ‘Obey’ this year, and we have some big plans for it: we’ll have lots to talk about soon along these lines. We’re also planning to perform more shows in more new places, including a west-coast trip, and more east-coast shows at more new spots. We want to come and party where you are, and we look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you, friends, for yet another wonderful year. We’re bringing the party to you, bigger and stronger than ever, in 2015. Stay tuned, stay in touch, and prepare yourselves to ‘Obey the Party’ like never before. These are the days, friends, truly, and we’re so honored, and thankful, to share this time, and this unbridled happiness, with all of you.
“… the music is also quite good, rocking harder than expected, this Americana/Bluesy rootsy rock and roll band offers some serious high quality rock and roll, with great guitarwork by lead guitarist Brian Shafer.”— Strutterzine
