“The melodies are big, the vocals compelling, and the guitar gives the whole thing an ambient accessibility.  This is good old Rock and Roll with an earthy, alternative twist” –The Album Project

Today at AmazonMP3.com the band will offer up free of charge a 4 track EP featuring songs ‘Heaven Come My Way’ and ‘The Golden State’ as well as 2 music videos.  Get it here: http://amzn.to/AK2vidfree

“The album in whole is a masterpiece and to truly appreciate it you have to listen to it top to bottom” – The Music Eye

Abandon Kansas is: Jeremy Spring – vocals, guitar, keys, Brad Foster – guitar, Chet Kueffer – bass and Brian Scheideman – drums

With an extensive touring schedule and DIY work ethic, the band has already garnered a legion of loyal fans and was named one of Alternative Press’ “100 Bands You Need To Know In 2010.”  Abandon Kansas is determined to continue to bring their music to the masses with the release of Ad Astra Per Aspera.
