We recently had the privilege to contribute to the Musician’s Friend Blog.There’s a lot of great info in the article about how to go about releasing an album independently; from where/how to record to what to do once your album is ready for the masses . Check it out here!!
We’re very excited to kick off the third season of KUTX Live – it’s a family-friendly free show every Sunday afternoon (2-6pm) at Uncle Billy’s on Barton Springs! Ours is September 7th – come hang out and enjoy some free jams on a Sunday afternoon in beautiful Austin, TX!!!
Check out this live version of a brand new song, called “Walk Away,” we recorded at Blue Rock Artist Ranch & Studio last week! We’ve been hard at work making some new music and are pumped to finally be sharing it with you!
To some of you Daytrotter is old news. You’ve been finding cool new recordings of your favorite bands, and finding new favorite bands from them for years! In fact, we’ve actually been there a couple of times, and a few of us recorded a session for Brandon’s side project The Wealthy West. Well back when we were getting ready for our new video release they came out with a couple really sweet new changes that we’re super pumped about and we hope you’ll go give them a look! Click picture below to hear our session from 2010.
One thing we’re excited about is their new “Direct to Artist” portion of their subscription. Basically, if you sign up and become a member, you can now elect to donate $5.00 of your yearly fee to any band of your choice. Check out this article all about it on Evolver.com
We’ve recorded a new session a couple months ago, and can’t wait for you to hear it! But until then, check out these Wealthy West songs.
We’re excited to announce that on June 5th we’re releasing a Total Recall-inspired music video for our song “Marching to the Palace!” We’re also hosting a premiere of the video in Austin at the North Door on June 5th where, in addition to showing the new video, we’ll be watching the original Total Recall and giving away awesome free stuff! We promise it’ll be a night you’ll never forget (insert awkward Total Recall joke here)! Doors open at 7pm. Oh, and did we mention it’s free? You really have no excuse now…
And in case you aren’t familiar, here’s the 1990 trailer:

Lastly, here is one more way you can truly help us out on this tour:
Check out our tour website that contains awesome stuff like free music from all the bands and a sweet tour promo video.
Next to each city, there is a .pdf link. Click the one next to your city to download an easily printable .pdf file containing four fliers, and then distribute them to everyone you know!
It’s a really simple way for you to help us spread the word about our music and our shows in your city. Leave them in your local coffee shops, bars, restaurants, break rooms, churches, dorms, record stores, etc.
So go check it out, and let’s spread the word and hang out in February and March!
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!
