Dustin Kensrue’s Christmas music album, This Good Night Is Still Everywhere, is available beginning today for the first time on limited edition vinyl. The solo, mostly–acoustic collection was originally issued as a digital-only release in 2008. This new vinyl edition features two bonus tracks, including a cover of mewithoutYou’s “A Stick, A Carrot & String.” For fans that previously purchased the digital album, the two additional songs will be available for individual download at all digital retailers.

    “I was really excited to be able to put this out on vinyl,” said Kensrue, “especially since we didn’t even have time to release it on CD before.”

    Only 1,000 hand-numbered pieces of vinyl will be pressed and will be split in two colorways – 500 red and 500 green. The package is $15 (plus shipping) and features brand new artwork, liner notes with track descriptions written by Dustin himself, includes a digital download card and can be purchased here: http://www.merchlackey.com/vagrant/index.php?page=655. AbsolutePunk.net is also giving away a pair of tickets to every date on the 2010 Where’s The Band? Tour along with a copy of the limited edition vinyl! Click Here to enter!

    Kensrue, who is also vocalist and guitarist for Southern California’s Thrice, wrote, recorded, and produced This Good Night Is Still Everywhere, while mixing duties were handled by Thrice guitarist Teppei Teranishi.

    In December Kensrue will once again be joining Matt Pryor (The Get Up Kids, The New Amsterdams), Chris Conley (Saves The Day, Two Tongues) and Anthony Raneri (Bayside) for another Where’s The Band? tour on the east coast (see dates below).

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
