10/13 - WPA Tour Announced & On Sale Now!

Posted on March 04, 2010

* A Note From The Spring Standards & New Tour Dates Announced!

Greetings from the Pumpkin Patch!

So we've been hibernating in Trout Studios for the last few weeks and things have been pretty special. Magical even. We have been absolutely BLOWN AWAY by all of your generosity in helping us to raise the money for this record! With your help we are now over half-way to our goal of raising $20,000! We honestly can't tell you how much it means to us that you've shown your support in such a direct and positive way. For those of you who haven't gotten a chance to check out our donation packages (shameless shameless plug), go ahead and take a gander here! The fundraising will continue until we reach our goal so it's never too late to help.

In other news, we are super stoked to be hitting the road as soon as we are done here in the studio - early November is shaping up to be pretty exciting!  We are lucky enough to be opening up for Works Progress Administration ("WPA") for a few shows around the Northeast.  WPA consists of Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket), Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek, Fiction Family), and Luke Bella (Jerry Douglas Band, Lyle Lovett). Interesting non sequitur - we have crossed paths with a few members of WPA in random ways over the years.  Once when we were 15, another time at a Jackson Brown concert...we don't know if they remember but we sure do.  So come and see our long lost friend reunion!!!

We're also very excited to be returning to the one and only Joe's Pub in November for a very special show, in which we will have some friends help us premiere a few of the newer songs from the upcoming record.  We like our friends and we like the instruments they play to help our music sound pretty.  Also, our annual Boxing Day show at the Arden Gild Hall is locked in, so get your Christmas crackers ready!

Bundle up y'all - it's gettin' cold. Don't worry though, our love will keep you warm.
