lots of new and exciting news over here!
first off, since we love giving all you guys free stuff (as if we don't do that enough already...) we decided to throw in some free posters. that is, if you pre-order the album. remember, if you pre-order the album, and live in SF or LA, you already get a FREE ticket to the release show at 330 Ritch / The Echo. on top of that, the first 100 people to pre-order the album in SF or LA will get a free hand-made kyle lee poster when they come to the show.
here are the links to pre-order:
5/8 LA @ The Echo
5/9 SF @ 330 Ritch
