Tickets for the #OCTMS Promo Tour went on sale today.  The goal this tour is to play small/intimate rooms and try out some of the new songs live for the first time to see how they handle.  A full list of shows and ticket information is at the bottom of this email, or you can find them at OwlCityMusic.com.  Get tickets soon because they are going fast.  I hope I will be able to share this with you!


As an artist, you never know what to expect come release day, but as usual, you guys turned this week into one of the best.  Your continued encouragement and support means the world to me.  A special thank you to those who’ve been joining me on Twitter on Thursday evenings at 7pm EST.  If you haven’t already downloaded the music, you can get the Shooting Star EP on iTunes now.

There’s a lot more big news to come so stay tuned.

Employed to Serve

Forward Under a Dying Sun

Most of these days, the sun rises and sets on a world that feels like it's dying. Across the pond, where Employed to Serve calls home, they're learning how to support their latest record a year into its release. HM contributor Andrew Voigt recently sat down with Justine Jones to learn more about the band, marrying your bandmates, and their outside shot at touring with Rammstein.

Neck Deep

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.

Ever Eden

The Haunting Sound of Hope

"Ever Eden has been this perfect culmination of us realizing what our journey has been and how to aim that as a message for other people." After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.
