We Started A Band, We’re Going on Tour!

We’re going on tour in June!  It’s been a while since we’ve been out to some of these places, and some we’ve never been to before.  There are some great bands playing with us along the way.  Are we excited?  Yes.  Did Ben buy a new super compact keyboard stand?  Yes.  Are we stopping at Shoney’s?  Yes.  Here’s the tour poster below.  Details including all the bands we’re playing with & facebook events for each show all listed here.

The day we return (6/23) we’ll begin shooting our video for “Every Little Thing You Love” (cool pre-production pictures here).  We are even having a Roller Skating Prom scene, which we need extras for, and you’re all invited!  Details.  Come.  Skate.  Dress up.  Bring a date.  Have fun.  Free pizza & photos.  Los Bynardoz will be the prom band.

Hope to see you out there!

We’re making a music video!

Hello everyone,
After receiving a lot of positive feedback about our interactive video for “How Does It Feel to Be in Love?” we’ve decided to create another music video, this time for our song Every Little Thing You Love …but true to form, we’re not trying to create just any old music video!  This one is going to feel more like a short film - think of it in the tradition of music videos as “mini movies,” when Thriller ruled MTV, not just band sing-a-longs.  We’ll be teaming up with a filmmaker named JP Disciscio and we’re eager to get started.
But we need your help! Today, we’re launching a fundraising campaign via IndieGoGo to help raise funds to make this video happen.  Please check out our page & promo video to find out more about the project and to donate.  We’re offering perks for everyone who gives, which means you’ll get something back for your donation (copies of our album, limited edition shirts, props from the video set, we’re even writing personalized songs, and offering to come to play a show in your living room).  Anything you can give is a huge help and is greatly apprecaited.  Here’s the link:
Please consider sharing this link on your Facebook or Twitter.  We have 30 days to reach our goal.  We’ll check in again soon with updates.
Thank you!
