Update #9

We've met our goal! + Exile tour dates + Going to the dogs?

Comment

Thank you all so much! We've met and exceeded our goal! We're very overwhelmed and extremely grateful. Going the fan-funding route was a very new thing for us, and you guys proved that it can work. Hitting our goal is a small victory for eliminating the dreaded middleman. Backers: go ahead and pat yourselves on the back. Get yourselves a few scoops of ice cream you've been holding out on. Sure, it's 9am, but you've more than earned it; you're an adult, you're allowed to eat ice cream in the morning. We'll be sending out love letters and such soon.

Now, I'll be honest. The short video below was filmed before we hit our goal, so a few, er... adjustments had to be made in post-production. Rest assured Zack was in no real danger; a copy of Twilight was close by, ensuring that everyone present at the shoot would lose their appetite.

Below are the tour dates for the fall leg of the Exile tour! Some dates are subject to change, yadda yadda, but if you see your city not listed here or want to recommend a venue or a band to play with, please let us know! Shoot a message over to aloud@allthingsaloud.com.

All right, all. Thanks again. You're all stars. :)
