Build Anyway is here!

First off, we just just want to thank everyone who has already listened to our new album Build Anyway. Thanks for tweeting about it, for telling your friends on Facebook, but mostly just for taking the time to listen. We worked really hard for a long time, and it’s nice to see all that work paying off.

It’s for sale pretty much everywhere that people buy music online, but if you’re still on the fence, you can stream it at Paste Magazine, Spinner, or Liisten.com.

 

We’re also getting ready to hit the road again for a while. This time we’re heading out west for the first time in many years, and we couldn’t be more excited. Here’s a link to a page with all the info you could ever need about each show BUILD ANYWAY TOUR. But for a quicker look, you can always just click on our shows page, or just look over there —————————>

 

Last but not least we have brand new video for you! We shot it at our house in Austin a couple weeks ago! Hope you enjoy it, make sure and spread it around like wildfire!
