Fellow warriors,

I am incredibly honored to announce that together, we have achieved something sort of ridiculous.

Because of you (not any record label, not any big corporation, just you), "The Near Future" was the #5 Vinyl Album in the entire USA last week, as you can see from this screenshot of the Billboard charts:

In addition, I am incredibly psyched to announce that tonight, we are playing Lincoln Hall in Chicago for the official "The Near Future" album release show, AND WE'RE STREAMING THE WHOLE THING LIVE ON OUR USTREAM PAGE!

Yep, you heard me right.  We're going on some time after 10:30PM US Central Time, and you can tune in from wherever you are in the world to join us and celebrate what we were all able to achieve together.  You can view at http://advanceguard.ifightdragons.com (the UStream Tab is on the left side of the page), although you can also go straight to our UStream Channel (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/live-dragon-fighting).

Also, if you're anywhere near Chicago, come rock out with us in the flesh!  Here's the ticket link one last time: http://www.lh-st.com/Shows/12-20-2014+I+Fight+Dragons

A little birdie told me we might even be performing Side 1 of The Near Future in its entirety... but then again you really can't trust birdies these days.  Still, I think he may have been on to something.

Thank you again for taking this ridiculous journey with us, and please join us to celebrate and cap it all off tonight.  

Sincerely,

Brian, Packy, Hari, and Chad

      Concert on Ustream was amazing! I've missed every other Ustream event, so I'm really happy to have seen this one! You guys are amazing and I'm very glad that we contributed this!
      P.S. We rocked out so hard that we almost trashed my living room...

      Wish I could've been there. It would have been awesome. And unfortunately I won't be able to watch it live, so I hope it will be recorded somehow for us who can't stay up way to late/early in the night/morning :)
