This has been one ridiculously exciting week...

Last Friday’s record release at the Queen was by far the best show to date. Thanks to each and every one of you who came out to support and a big welcome to the new faces we hadn’t seen before. We hope you had as much fun as we did!

The next day, we find out WE did it! You all stood behind us and helped us reach our goal on Kickstarter, all $7500... We’re truly blessed to have such dedicated friends, fans and family. THANK YOU. Just in case you were looking to help out, but haven’t had the chance to make a pledge, there are still two weeks left in the campaign. Every penny we earn will go towards promotion of The Mountain, so please, continue to help us spread the word! You can even get super-cool rewards like this here original New Sweden (do you know what it took to get Billy to agree to give this up?!):

Before we even finished processing the weekend, we get a call saying we’re confirmed to open for The Felice Brothers, one of our favorite bands, at World Cafe Live at The Queen on August 25th! Someone slap us...

TONIGHT we make our first appearance at Philadelphia’s renowned Tin Angel with North Lawrence Midnight Singers and Dan Collins. If you’re in the area, tickets are only $10 and we’ll have plenty of copies of the new album on hand, so come out and snag one! If you’re a Kickstarter backer, you can grab your copy of the album before the campaign ends at any one of our shows, so why not tonight? You can also get one next Thursday, August 11th at Mojo Main for the Spark Summer Music Series where we’ll be appearing with Can You Canoe? and Villians Like You. 

Oh, and somewhere in the mix of all of this, The Mountain hit the shelves of Barnes & Noble (Christiana Mall) and Rainbow Records. So if you can’t make it to a show in the near future, you know where to go to get your hands on a physical copy, and if you’re free Monday, August 22nd, you can buy your copy at Barnes & Noble AND get it signed by all of us. You can also meet Rod Kim, Shane Palko, Lotus Hill and John & Brittany that evening too. Rumor has it we’ll even have a drink named after us that week, all part of Barnes & Noble InDEpendent Music Week.

Thanks again for everything that you do. It means the world to us that you're here with us while we launch our career.
