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. September at the very latest. glad that you liked the new material. hopefully, we'll see you again really soon. thanks, michael and wmmf
