Hey folks! It’s been a while since I’ve touched base with a newsletter blast BUT for very good reason… we’ve been hard at work making a NEW RECORD!

Those of you who keep tabs on the band’s activities via social media have likely heard rumblings about the new addition to the musical family, but for those of you who tastefully restrain from Face-booking and Tweeting, I wanted to pass along the official word. The album is called “chemical” and September 16 is the official release date.

I’ll be sending out a more comprehensive update on the album and the details surrounding it very soon… for now, I wanted to let you all know about a very cool promotion that we have cooking around the record’s first single “Fireflies.”

We took a slightly different (and more creative approach) with the release of the album’s first single “Fireflies” geared toward involving fans and friends in a very cool way.

First some history… a while back, we sent a top secret copy of the new album out to a small circle of friends, family and fans (a “test group” if you will) and asked everyone to get back to us with their favorite tunes. There was a variety of feedback returned, but the one song that seemed to unanimously make it into everyone’s top three was “Fireflies.”

It’s a light-hearted tune with a roots-rock feel that is all about summer… tons of natural imagery and “snap-shot” vignettes of the warmer season. There’s also a little summer romance theme sprinkled in there as well.

The response to the tune was so positive that we decided to go with it… we created a website for the song (www.fireflies2014.com) and offered up a simple arrangement for visitors:

- Download our free song

- In return, upload one of your favorite personally-shot summer photos or videos to the site

- At the end of the summer, we will cut a video made up of photos and videos submitted to the site


That was the start of it and great submissions started to roll in… but what happened next was totally unexpected. We started seeing social media shares from all over the place... first in our home state and then around the country!

The idea took of and essentially started to market itself! Very cool to watch. Then out of the blue, Guitar World Magazine featured it:

We’re very fired up at the reaction so far and will keep you posted as things progress… all in all, good signs for a record that isn’t even out yet!

In the meantime, we’d like YOU - our loyal newsletter subscribers, to consider submitting a photo or video. Summer ain’t over yet and there’s PLENTY of time to get your photo uploaded.

Just visit this page on the site and upload away!:
