Let me again start this update by thanking you all again for supporting our band and making this whole process a reality.
Our record, "Anchor Home" came out February 1st, and we couldn't be happier. The Boston release show was a total blast. We shared the stage with some of our favourite local bands, to a sold out audience at the bar I have worked at since September. We toured regionally afterwards up through Vermont and Maine in support of the record.
Today, I am packing up my room and am about to head west to Los Angeles for about six weeks. We are thrilled to be playing a residency at Hotel Cafe, in Hollywood. It's my first time truly playing out west, and in many ways marks the true release of our record.
Below is the poster for the event, which I am printing and sending to all donors, along with all three of our discs, including the record you folks helped us make. These packages should go out shortly. I apologize for the delay on shipping the record, and sincerely hope you all dig it.
Here is a bit of press via Boston's biggest name in the blogosphere.
The record can be heard in a variety of places, below is a free link to the record as well as other spots if you are linking other folks to our music.

Again on behalf of everyone who played and worked on this record I want to thank you all again. Expect packages soon, and hopefully even more goodies down the line if the record does well!
