Update #2

Boston album release show + behind the scenes video: "Old Soldier"

Comment

Hello everyone! So far, we're inching very close to raising $1,000. Thank you so much for your generosity and for telling all your friends. We've still got a ways to go, and because of the way Kickstarter is structured the funding will not go through unless we hit 100% of our goal by August 9th. So keep telling everyone you know! Twice!

I'm very happy to announce the Boston release show for Exile! Mark your calendars for September 23, 2010 at Church of Boston. Our friends St. Claire will be sharing the bill with us, as well as another band to be announced.

Pledging $20—if you haven't already done so—will get you half-price tickets to the Boston release show as well as a copy of Exile, a copy of another Aloud album of your choosing or a t-shirt, and entry for you and a friend to the Exile listening party... (*cough cough*... it's a good deal... just sayin').

The vid below, culled from our studio journal on YouTube, was from a session on September 27, 2009. Our friend Matthew Girard popped by to dub some bass, trumpets, and a euphonium on a track called "Old Soldier". If you're wondering, "What the hell is a euphonium?" then all will be revealed in the video.

Thanks for making this thing happen, everyone.

Yours,
Henry
