Album Give Away

For those of you who get the downhere newsletter this won't be news to you but if you don't get it or just haven't read it yet I wanted to share this with my faithful blog readers. Here is a copy of what we sent out yesterday. (btw, the shoes I am wearing in this picture are the brown ones, PF Flyers, 2nd row from the top 4th pair over) ha ha


This past weekend represented another milestone in the world of downhere. On Friday we celebrated the two-year anniversary of the release of 'Wide-Eyed and Mystified' - can you believe it? As I stop and take a minute to reflect on what's happened in the life of downhere over the last two years I get overwhelmed pretty quickly. We've traveled tens of thousands of miles and played hundreds of shows over the past two years. As friends and fans you also have traveled many miles to come out to shows, to buy countless CDs, t-shirts, posters, duct tape wallets, etc., to deliver birthday cards and gifts, and to let us know you are praying for us. From the bottom of our hearts we say 'Thank-you.'

Have you heard our big news yet? If not, here it is: for the month of June we will be offering 'Wide-Eyed and Mystified' as a free download on MusicChristian.com, the premier online Christian music retailer. We have been working on the new album over the last number of months and are nearing the release date - September 23rd our fourth studio album entitled 'Ending is Beginning' will be available around the world, and we need your help to get the word out. Many of you have already listened to the songs and given your input on what songs should be on the album - thanks for participating in that! This limited time only giveaway is the next marketing step in the march towards release day. Our goal with this giveaway is really quite simple: to introduce our music to folks who may not otherwise come across it so that they will be ready for the new album when it releases in September.

We really wrestled with this idea for the obvious reason: why would we give away something that we've just spent two years encouraging people to buy? Aren't we sort of alienating our faithful fans - those who spent their hard-earned money on the CD that we're now giving away? Our hope and prayer is that instead you will join with us and take this opportunity over the next month to introduce as many of your friends as possible to our music - for free!

In the next few days we will be sending you a link where you can download the record. Feel free to email it to as many people as you want to. We would love your continued help and support getting the word out. But even more importantly, we would appreciate your prayers over the next number of months as we work with our record label and management team to set up this new album so that the songs the Lord has given us to share this time around will reach as many people as possible.

Thank-you for your support over the years - many of you have been with us from the start and have stuck with us through our various hairstyles . It is a pleasure doing ministry with you - we look forward to seeing you out on the road!

Sincerely,

Jeremy, Marc, Jason, Glenn

LOL about the shoes. I'm already spreading the word about the album. How exciting!
