Hi there, I just had to write. The Bronze Age is true gem – a beautiful record from start to finish. Thanks you. Also any upcoming shows In NYC?

Hi Jono! Thanks for the kind words! We don’t have any shows planned at the moment but when we do,
NYC will almost certainly be on the list as our keyboardist just moved there. 🙂
Fantastic! What’s he doing here? Are you guys on top of your SoundExchange royalties? Please sary yes….
You are the most underrated band ever. Good for you! Bronze Age is my #2 for the year, slightly edged out by YLT. Lucky enough to see you in CLE some years ago opening for Pernice Bros. Keep on keeping on. Oh, one other thing, Kingsbury Run in Cleveland: http://clevelandhistorical.org/items/show/376#.Us7DCbSRKB4
