Happy 2016, everyone!
Friendship Commanders' first album is up for pre-order today! You can order whichever format(s) of DAVE you wish, and you'll get one song from the record now, "Animals of Pride." All physical formats will include the digital download of the album, and all but vinyl will ship out on the release day, February 12th. Because vinyl is such a complicated beast, it takes significantly longer to press. We're shooting for May 1st as the shipping date for that format. It's our first vinyl release here at TTS!
One dollar of every copy sold (in any format) will be donated to HIV/AIDS programs.
They tracked the record themselves. Jerry mixed it. Alex McCollough mastered it.
The artwork is by B. David Walsh, of course. The pineapple is his sacred image, and it is also the image of welcome and friendship. We thought it was exactly right for this project and we're so grateful to have collaborated with him once more. The graphic rendering was done by our beloved team member, Ric Simenson.
Their tour schedule for next month has been updated. Two of their eleven shows are sold out, but there are still tickets for the rest. We can't wait for you to hear the new music.
Happy pre-order day, and happy new year.
