Hey Hey Friends!
We’re just two months away from the release of our third album Great Balancing Act and we’re just squirming with excitement and anticip…..
It’s 2015, do you know where your EGRESS is? Philly Raw at the Trocadero for starters! And featured on CMJ’s Download This!
Hey Hey Friends!
It’s a new year for EGRESS and things are off to a roaring start for us. With Great Balancing Act slated for a May 19, 2015 release date, Saddle Sarah is putting her finishing touches on the album artwork. Want a sneak peak? Sure you do!
And that’s not all! We’ll be dropping singles in the run up to the release of GBA. The first of which—We Won’t Go—is a rowdy drinking song celebrating the boozy cycle of merriment, mirth, malaise and of course moroseness. It had its debut on February 23rd (just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!) and has been receiving great coverage from music sources such as Nooga.com, Ninja Fish Music Blog, The Vinyl District’s “Press Play” and was featured on KDHX’s Song of the Day and is now featured on CMJ’S DOWNLOAD THIS! follow that link and download it now and for FREE!
In other exciting news, while us darn EGRESS kids seriously enjoyed our much needed R&R over the holiday season, we’re all chomping at the bit to re-hit the road and bring our new songs (not to mention also, our newly revamped stage show) to all of you!! So we’re pleased as punch to inform you that your next chance to see EGRESS will be as the featured artists at Philly Raw’s installment of PRESENTat the Trocadero. Other exciting upcoming shows include our Brooklyn/NYC album release show on May 22 and you’ll be able to catch an in-studio performance on Wildfire Radio’s The Scene Scene Show on March 9th. You can find more details on these and many many more shows HERE.
We hope your 2015 has been off to as eventful a start as ours has! We’re already feeling a healthy buzz about GBA with an upcoming interview and feature in the April edition of Lehigh Valley Style and our nomination for Best Band in the Lehigh Valley on the What’s Happening List. We’re currently in first place! If you haven’t voted for us yet, the poll is open through 2/28 and you don’t have to be local to cast a vote!
Please be sure to take advantage of this free download and spread it like gossip in a small town!
‘Til we tickle your earholes and see your lovely faces again, toodles!
Well folks, as the Festivus season approaches, EGRESS has settled in for some much needed (and brief!) R&R. Last month we successfully wrapped up production on our third full length album—GREAT BALANCING ACT—with Brooklyn-based producer Roger Greenawalt and we are now working on the artwork and packaging for the CDs and VINYLs. The entire recording process was quite magical; you can check out a behind-the-scenes peak of the action below! And even with the album’s release still a few months off, there’s already a-buzz a-brewing. You can check out this lovely little feature on Saddle Sarah and the band in the latest issue of Geekadelphia’s “Geek of the Week’ segment.

The countdown to Halloween begins with us darn EGRESS kids sitting tight at 90% of our bottom-line goal with just over two weeks to go in our quest to $14,000. In the coming days we’ll be rolling out a few super-sweet rewards that we’ve been saving ’til the end for our stretch goal. This week also brought news that our Kickstarter is being featured as a Staff Pick. Once again, we can’t even begin to tell you how much all of your support means to us. Again, THANK YOU!
~NAME THIS SONG REWARD~ Check out another sneak peak of things to come on the album. This time it’s an as-of-yet-untitled work we’re giving one fan or friend the chance to title. Your name will also be placed in the liners notes as a contributor! We had another song too, but that reward has already been claimed; this one’s still up for grabs. Any takers?
We’ve also JUST added a show on October 15 at the Bethlehem Steel Stacks opening for Here Come the Mummies! (If you don’t know them, check them out http://www.herecomethemummies.com). This will be an amazing show and we are thrilled to have been asked to be a part of it. If you’re local, heres the link to the show! http://www.artsquest.org/pages/details.php?106999
Lastly, we’ve had a great friend of ours at Spookadilly Circus(https://www.facebook.com/spookadillycircus) donate some of her hand-crafted lavender Zombie Head Sleep Pillows just in time for the season.
They come as part of a bundle and include an autographed copy of the new album along with a bunch of other goodies. We’ve also added them as perks by themselves! But that’s not the only reward worth mentioning. We’ve also taken the liberty of sharing another little sneak peak of things to come on the album. This time it’s an as-of-yet-untitled work we’re giving one fan the chance to name. We had another song too, but that reward has been claimed; this one’s still up for grabs. Any ideas? Til the next episode!

Well folks, week two of our KICKSTARTER has come to a close and YOU have already helped us break the 80% mark with over three weeks to go still. AMAZING! We cannot begin to put into words (more on that soon) how grateful we are to have the support of our fans, friends, and families in this adventure; we continue to be floored daily by the love you’ve all shown us. We’ve already added a plethora of new rewards, but guess what!!!!…the closer we get to our bottom-line goal, the sooner we’ll be adding new and even more exciting rewards (ahem…like VINYL just to name one) as we begin to pursue our STRETCH GOALS! And since you’re helping shape the future of the independent music biz by getting in on the ground floor of the #diwy movement, don’t be shy about shouting it out from the rooftops! We heartily encourage all of you who’ve pledged so far to share your deed on the inter-webs via Facebook, Twitter, maybe even ‘Ello (if that’s a thing yet!). Be proud of your support! Remember, this is not charity! This is the FUTURE OF INDEPENDENT MUSIC!
