We've been stayin busy lately everybody, writing new music, (some of you may have heard our newest tune "Hen House" last night at Shakori's dance tent) and playing shows here and there. The dance tent was poppin' last night!! It's always great to see a tent-ful of people getting down to some Shambles tunes. If you're at Shakori Hills this weekend, keep on the lookout for Ellis, Danny, Matt, and Jonathan; we'll be out there all weekend listening to music and causing a ruckus. Next weekend we'll be playing at Carolina Jubilee down in Harmony, NC.
Sold Out Album Release
Goodness gracious everybody, are we feelin' the love or what?! Tickets to the Ellis Dyson & the Shambles Album release show sold out before doors ever opened, a first for us and it's all thanks to you. It's fans like y'all that got us to where we are now, made the album possible at all, and it's you all who keep us going; a sincere thank you to everyone who has supported us, spread the word about our music, or been there in any other way over the last two years. To everyone who couldn't get in that night, you know we'd have loved to have ya there with us!
Albums are now up for sale, (obviously), and we've also got a rad digital album on a bottle opener USB! So not only can you listen to the album and crack open a cold one, but it also features lots of special and unseen Shambles content including photos, videos, and the high-quality WAV files for the album as well. In addition, we've got some new merch for you all to purchase over in our redone store, so go check it all out.
We're looking forward to hitting the road over the next couple months, hitting Raleigh, Wilmington, and Asheville in September, and then bouncing around between festivals throughout October. Check out the shows page to stay current on where to catch us around the state!
