DOWNLOAD SELLOUT

Just to make sure you've all had a chance to download Sellout, here's a new link that will expire one month from today: http://t.opsp.in/12nRy.  If you haven't gotten around to downloading it, please grab it, listen, and leave comments with your feedback!

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE SONG?

Please GO HERE to pick your favorite song and see what the most popular song on Sellout is so far.

OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE

The official release date of Sellout is June 30th (Next Thursday which correlates with our Bozeman Music on Main show).  We'll be mailing CDs out to backers the first week in July.  If you're getting a shirt, your order will be delayed by a week or so. 

Kickstarter is an amazing platform but the way they handle getting info from backers is pretty backwards so we apologize for any confusion about filling out your address and shirt size.  I really think they should get that info from you as soon as you pledge, but perhaps they'll have that ironed out for next time:)  If you still haven't filled out our address so we can send your CD, they tell me that you "just have to login to your Kickstarter account and click the obvious link".

So because it took longer than expected to get that info, pledges with shirts will be a little delayed.  The great news is that the stickers came in last week and they look amazing.  The CDs will be here soon too.  

MINI GOLF WITH TAYLOR SWIFT

Thanks to you we've got almost 3000 views already!   Now that the video has been officially released, we'll be putting together some "assets" that will help you help us get the word out.  Some examples are:

  • a list of Taylor Swift message boards
  • a graphic that directly compares several screen shots of her videos to ours
  • a letter to Taylor Swift from The Band
  • a premade chain letter style email for the handful of you "forwarders" out there

All these things should help us get to millions of views faster and get Taylor to quickly and effortlessly agree to meet us for a game of mini golf!


SUMMER SHOWS

We're playing some pretty bad ass shows this summer and we'll even be sharing stages with The Bellamy Brothers and Big Head Todd & The Monsters, as well as shows in Glasgow and Terry.  There are also a few opportunities to see Golden Grenade open for us.  Here are the Clintons shows on Facebook so please share and invite your friends!

      Thanks Amy! We're going on after the Bellamy Bros. Last I heard that would be about 10 pm. I think tickets are $12 and possibly close to sold out, although I don't know how tight they're going to be with walk up traffic.

      See you soon!

      Levi,
      I was excited to learn that you and the boys will be playing in Laurel this weekend. I'm driving from Seattle for my 20th high school reunion and I'm soooo looking forward to your show. Do you have an idea when your set will start?
      Congrats again on getting your project funded. I think all of 'Sellout' is great and good on you for getting 'Blame it on the Rain' on the album. amy
