    Happy Release Day!

    We are elated to release the first single and title track from our upcoming third album:  “Dust from the Stars”!  Today is also the premiere of its official music video!  After we knew which track was the chosen one (it received 70% of our fans and friends votes), Rich and I had our heads buried in wild ideas and video clips.  We do hope you find the end result interesting and enjoyable! 

    Please listen to “Dust from the Stars” for free on the wonderful TuneTrack release page.  When you’re there, you can view the high resolution artwork (the beautiful cover art photo is by Robert Snache), read the lyrics, and tell us what you think in the comments section.  We would love to hear your thoughts!

    Of course, we would thoroughly appreciate your support in that monetary way, too.  If you join our Green Room, you’ll receive an immediate CD quality download of “Dust from the Stars” (including high rez art) and our second album “Mourning Time.”  You’ll also have access to private Green Room posts where we share demo versions of upcoming releases.  In fact, you can hear demos of most of our currently unreleased third album if you take a stroll through the private blog posts.  So hey, join our Green Room to support us as we complete our third album.

    You can also grab “Dust from the Stars” on Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, etc.

    If you’re a remixer, you can get the vocal stems for “Dust from the Stars” on ccMixter!  We’ll be releasing all of the vocal stems to our third album on ccMixter.  Thank you to all of the remixers who have collaborated with us!  Your mixes are inspiring!

    We really hope you dig this track.  Thank you for lending us your ears.

    Take care and cause ruckus,

    Cover Art for "Broken Record"Well, we're getting closer and closer to completion of our third album. We're getting so close, in fact, that Rich and I want to release our first digital single very soon. So... we were debating which song should be the chosen one, when we realized that we could just ask folks what they think! Because, really, after working on the album songs for so very long, our opinions (and ears) become rather biased. But YOURS aren't! (Plus, it'll be fun to find out which song our friends and fans think is best!)

    We will be releasing the single everywhere (TuneTrack, our site, iTunes, Amazon, etc.). An official music video will also be posted on YouTube. For remixers, we'll upload the vocal stems to ccMixter on the same day as the release. The song with the most votes will be released about 1 month after the poll ends. The poll ends on Thursday, July 19th at 11:59PM EST.

    Soooo... which of the two songs do YOU dig most? "Dust from the Stars" or "Broken Record"? The song clips and poll are posted here!

    We would LOVE to hear what you think about the songs. Throw us a comment and share your thoughts!  Here's another link to that poll so you can listen and vote. Our fate is in your hands. I hope YOUR pick wins!

    Take care and cause ruckus,

    p.s. Join our Green Room and you'll get to download the single on TuneTrack as soon as it's released!
