Happy Summer, kiddies—from EGRESS! We’ve had a busy few months of shows including three great sets at the Steampunk World’s Faire in May followed by an amazing June mini-tour to Dallas for AKON; the ever-lovely AllWays Lounge in New Orleans and the Flying Monkey in Huntsville, AL with our friends Freksheaux to Geaux; and Nashville’s East Room with our new pals, Fable Cry. Ooh, and then there was last week’s band field trip to Rockaway Beach in NYC to play with our old friends, Yula and the eXtended Family. Fun times all around. Next week we’ll be kicking off the busy month of August with a special-edition Musikfest show at the Funhouse in Bethlehem with some shows at the Alternative Gallery in Allentown in support of two of our favorite bands: Jaggery (Boston) on 8/19 and The Butcher Knives (NYC) on 9/21. We’re also pleased as punch to announce upcoming dates in September at The Philadelphia Museum of Art and Irving Plaza in NYC.
In other news, we are Oh-Fish-Alley underway with the pre-production stage of our impending THIRD ALBUM! Sit tight for a slew of upcoming announcements regarding release dates, sneak-peaks, and even what we’re gonna name the little bugger (and a few other surprises!!!). In the meantime, EGRESS is also tickled to tell you we will be recording a three song EP “Songs from Tin Can Alley” this month for a late August release date. And guess what! Because we’re so excited about our next album (and also because we have a crush on all of you, our fans), we’re giving this EP to you all for FREE! We’ve made a lot of new friends over these past few months and have also seen a lot of old familiar faces; your support means the world to us. We can’t wait to tickle yer ear drums with a whole bunch of new material! ‘Til then!
- Those darn EGRESS kids
