SSG Mills sacrificed greatly for this country. Let’s pay him back!  For more information about SSG Mills visit www.travismills.org

back at the Nomad w/ The Dropsteppers and Black Blondie!

We’ll be back at the Nomad on Saturday, April 28th with our friends The Dropsteppers and Black Blondie. We’re planning on doing a Nomad show like this on a quarterly basis, so be on the lookout for the next show to be announced, always with cool bands joining us for a fun evening of music. The April show should be especially cool, since we haven’t played with Black Blondie since New Years Eve when both bands rang in 2010 at the Triple Rock.

For any of you planning on going to the North Star Roller Girls championship bout earlier that night, get there early, as The Prizefighters will be playing a set before the bout (music at 6:30), and then we’ll be off the the Nomad for the show with The Dropsteppers and Black Blondie. It’s as mini as a mini-tour can be; two shows, one day in one city. We may or may not have tour t-shirts available at the shows…you’ll just have to come out to find out for sure!

“Follow My Sound” Special Edition LP drops October 21st!

We are proud to announce our release of the Follow My Sound special edition vinyl LP on Jump Up Records!  Almost a year ago, we put 5 years of writing, rehearsing, performing and overall hard work into our debut album Follow My Sound.  To commemorate that effort and to show our lovely fans a hint of things to come, we have recorded new bonus tracks and reworked old favorites with our new band members to put forth a special vinyl edition of our debut album.

The vinyl LP will officially be released on Friday, October 21st as part of the big MNSKA Double Release Party with our friends The Dropsteppers, who are releasing their debut CD Get Up In It! on Megalith Records, and long-time local favorites Umbrella Bed.  The party will be at Nomad World Pub in Minneapolis, MN.  Doors are at 9pm, $5 cover, 21+ show.  Make sure to bring your extra spending money to pick up the new music!

As a treat for you all, you can check out our music player and stream 3 new songs from the special edition LP!  “Moonlight” is a previously unreleased rocksteady tune we wrote a long time ago that we dusted off and improved with our new members.  “Take More Time” is an instrumental horn version of our song “Take Some Time” written by our horn players Courtney Klos and Ryan Peterson.  “Fibber’s Dub” is dub version of our song “Truth And Lies” created by our friend Anthony Abbinanti (The Drastics, Deal’s Gone Bad).

If vinyl is not your thing, stay tuned for a way to get a digital download of the special edition of Follow My Sound!  Also, we will be debuting the album art and tracklisting soon!
