In March TOS will release our new album, "WHEN THE NEW WEARS OFF", but we need your help to get there! 2011 was a great year for the band, but it wasn't without it's hurdles. The frustrations of finding a permanent 4th member who can tour as much as we need to forced us to take some time off the road and figure out our next move.

During our time off we began work on an album that would redefine our band. "WHEN THE NEW WEARS OFF", represents TOS at our leanest - as a three piece, with Glossary's Joey Kneiser contributing organ/piano. The album draws from a broad range of influences - specifically the 70's classic rock sounds of Ron Wood, Rod Stewart, Faces & Bob Seger among others, rather than from the typical alt-country cannon. But make no mistake - TOS is still a southern band.

Along with all the typical Kickstarter rewards, we have a very special reward for those who pledge 15 dollars or more - an IMMEDIATE download of our Kickstarter ONLY B-Sides EP "SCRAPS".  Here's how it works: When you make a pledge your email is sent to Kickstarter, once that happens we can then email you the download code. You will receive the code within 24 hours of your pledge. Here's the track listing:

Revelation Blues (When The New Wears Off B-Side)
Can't Stay In (Steel Hearts B-Side)
Devil Wind (Alt. Version, Young Lungs B-Side)
Highway Patrolman (B. Springsteen)
Theme Song (Young Lungs B-Side)

"WHEN THE NEW WEARS OFF" is being recorded by our long time producer/engineer Mikey Allred, whose credits include our American Stranger & Glossary's Long Live All of Us among others. We are hoping to wrap up recording in under 2 weeks.

We are still a 100% DIY band and need your help. Where your donation is going: Simple and straight up, the amount we are asking for will be used to directly pay for studio time as well as mastering of the album. It's important to note that if we DON'T reach our goal, we don't get anything, and you will NOT be charged. 

"WHEN THE NEW WEARS OFF" is a new era for our band. We can't wait for ya'll to hear it. Thank you for your support!
