Greetings from Milkweeds headquarters! We have a few bits of news to pass along:
After a wacky ending to 2015 in which we had to cancel a few gigs to to injury and illness and had a few gigs canceled on us due to scheduling snafus, we have a couple of gigs lined up on what Travis has decided to call our “We’re Happy(ish), We’re Healthy(ish), and Our Gigs Are (So Far) Confirmed (Fingers Crossed)” world tour. The Milkweeds’ world is sorta small though so it’s only a two gig tour. Catch us while you can.
- First, we are playing what we guess we can now call our 3rd Annual End of the College Semester/May Happy Hour show at the Saltine Warrior in Syracuse, NY on Friday, May 20 from 5:00 – 8:00pm.
- Second, in 2004 we played one of our very favorite gigs at the Good Nature Brewing Tap Room in Hamilton, NY, and we are super-excited to be returning there for an 9:00 – 11:30pm show on Saturday, June 11. If you haven’t been there, it’s a great room with great beer and a great time, and we promise it will be a fun way to spend a summer Saturday night.
We have been hard at work recording our new album and have just (probably) completed recording the basic tracks for twelve new originals. With any luck, we’ll finish this thing up and get it out before the end of the year. You’ll be able to check out many, if not all, of the new songs at the above gigs.
Hey, everyone… Due to circumstances beyond our control, our gig this Saturday at The Office in Baldwinsville has been CANCELED. We’ll see you on Friday, November 13 at the Saltine Warrior.
We wanted to let you know that we have two upcoming gigs in the area in the next couple of months (this constitutes a “tour” for The Milkweeds):
The first is on Saturday, October 17 from 8:00 – 11:00pm at The Office
The second is on Friday, November 13 from 5:00 – 8:00pm at the Saltine Warrior
in downtown Syracuse.
We’ll be playing a bunch of new stuff at both gigs. Hope to see you there!
We just wanted to let you know that our 4th annual Christmas single is available for free download. There are three songs on the single – one each by John, Kurt, and Travis. Just a heads up that Travis’s song – “Santa Claus (Is Watching You)” – contains some adult language and probably isn’t appropriate for kids and/or singing along to loudly in the office. Thanks for all of your support his year!
We wanted to let you know that we have a gig coming up in on Friday, October 10 from 5:00 – 8:00pm at the Saltine Warrior in downtown Syracuse (214 Water Street).
We’ve been spending our time working through some new songs so if you’re nice, we may just play some of them.
Since we have your attention, we may as well remind you that if you haven’t already picked up our 2014 album The Sun Will Shine, you can get it from anyone in the band or order it (CD and/or download in the format of your choice) here.
We just wanted to let you know:
1) Our new album The Sun Will Shine is officially out. You can buy it here (immediate download only or immediate download and CD) or you can buy it from any member of the band.
2) We’re playing an album release show at the Saltine Warrior (214 West Water Street) in Syracuse from 5:30 – 8:30pm on Friday, May 16. We hope you can make it.
Five hundred and sixteen days after we began recording our new album, “The Sun Will Shine”, we are excited to announce that it is available for pre-order
, and we will officially be releasing it on April 22. We think this is far and away our best album yet, and we can’t wait for you all to be able to hear it. The album was mastered by our friend Kris McDaniel and comes in a super-nice CD gatefold package designed by our friend Mike Rae.
The tracklisting is:
02) What The Sky Intended
03) Whiskey Bottle
04) Just Like That
05) Saint Julian
06) Fireworks Tonight
07) Perfect Gurl
08) Other People’s Eyes
