New Tracks available August 6!

August 1st, 2014 by admin

We know it’s been a while, but we’re really excited to release 2 new tracks on Wednesday, August 6. We recently spent some time on the radio and decided to take the tracks we recorded and make them into a 2 song EP called “The Radio Session.” This will be available on pre-order for only $2, and once it’s released we will have it available as a pay-what-you want. Basically, we just want to get this into your hands since it’s been way to long since we’ve released any new tracks. You can find the new tracks at http://somervillesymphonyorkestar.bandcamp.com/album/the-radio-session
