FESTE's "First Folio" set for release tomorrow at House of Blues Anaheim

Hello Kickstarter friends!

By now, if you've provided your response to the surveys, you should have received the online portion of your reward. Hooray! We hope you've enjoyed so far and we appreciate your patience with the delays in receiving your physical rewards. But there is good news, we will have your Kickstarter rewards at our album release show TOMORROW night at the the House of Blue Anaheim.

We would like to invite you out to the show to share this special moment with us because YOU helped every step of the way. If you will be at the release show tomorrow and wish to pick up your rewards, just simply go to one of the FESTE merchandise tables and say you are picking up your Kickstarter rewards. We'll cross you off of our list and give you your rewards on the spot! If your pledge level was $50 or more (and you responded to the Kickstarter surveys) you will have one complimentary ticket waiting for you at the House of Blues will call. We hope to see many of your faces there as we celebrate this momentous occasion with all of you.

Remaining Kickstarter packages will be sent out for delivery shortly after the album release show. Once again, we appreciate your patience with us, as we are trying to get you your rewards as soon as possible.

Thanks for supporting FESTE and we'll see you tomorrow night!

FESTE prepares Kickstarter rewards for shipping, looks ahead to "First Folio" record release show.

Hello, Kickstarter!

By now you should have recieved your Kickstarter Surveys asking for important information. Please be sure and fill those out as soon as possible so we can ship your goods to the right place!

In order to ensure the quality of our album, we have had to push back the shipping date for the Kickstarter rewards. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but please know that we are ensuring that the product you will be getting is nothing but the best. The tentative shipping date for your rewards is Monday, August 5th. You should receive all items within one or two weeks depending on shipping time.* And here is a first glance at our album artwork, designed by the fantastic Bryant Howerton. We're excited to send these your way!

As far as upcoming shows, on August 16th, FESTE will be playing its first LA show with The Bolts at AMPLYFi. We hope you will be there to join us for our debut LA performance as we rock the house that night. Then, On August 20th, we will having our "First Folio" record release show at The House of Blues Anaheim in Downtown Disney. We will be playing the record in its entirety as a special thank you to all who helped make our album a reality. We will also have exclusive merchandise available and a line up of some great bands performing with us. We look forward to spending this special night with you because without you, this would not be possible.

Ever since Charlie and I started FESTE, we have been taken aback by the tremendous support we have received. From first writing the songs, to recording, to our first performance in the Battle of the Bands, all the way through performing at the 2013 VANS Warped Tour. The path to our album release has been amazing so far and we have you to thank for that.

Please feel free to voice any questions or concerns you may have about your rewards or the shipping process with us. We hope you have a fantastic day and thanks for supporting FESTE!

FESTE wins Battle of the Bands, prepares for "First Folio" release!

Jumpin' gee-wilikers, Kickstarter!

How the heck are yah? We've got quite an update on all things FESTE! First things first, we are currently still working on the record and what we've heard so far is absolutely fantastic. The mixes were recieving and tweaking are all sounding awesome and we can't wait to share it with you all. We're making preparations to enter the mastering and manufacturing process! Once we get photos of your goodies, we'll post some up so you can get an exclusive look at all the FESTE items you will be receiving. Your surveys will be coming shortly and we will collect all the shipping information from you closer to mid July.

On the performance side of things, the Finals for the Battle of the Bands at the House of Blues Anaheim were amazing. Thank you to all the incredible people who came out and screamed your heads off. Because of you, we broke the record for tickets sold by a band in the Battle of the Bands in its 8 year history! It was, truly, a very special night for us. We went on to win that night and two days later, performed at the '13 VANS Warped Tour. The journey we've taken so far has been incredible, and we have you to thank for that.

Thank you for all the support you've given so far. It has meant an incredible amount to all of us. If you'd like to check us out live, we have a couple of shows coming up in the late summer leading up to our album release show in August! You can check out videos of us performing in the Semi-Final round at the slide bar at

Thanks for supporting FESTE!
