Q: We're stoked that the Kickstarter campaign went well. Do you have an official release date for the album? The new material sounded great at SummerFest!
A: hey Cory, we don't have an official date for the release just yet. we're going to shop it around for a little bit. but even if no labels bite, we're probably going to just release it in August.
