New Song from Al’s Band

At long last, the newest song from Al’s Band “We’ve Never Played In Hawaii” is available on CDBaby.com.

We’d love to play in the Aloha State, that’s one place we can’t wait to see‘ say the lyrics of our second single. It’s a cheerful lament about us yearning to play a show in Hawaii, and features some lovely guitar work from Jim.

Al’s Band updates

Hi everybody!   How has the new year been treating you so far?  Oh… sorry to hear that, but hopefully your eyebrows will grow back very soon.   Plus I hear chicks dig scars.  Sorry for the lack of updates (again).   My lab mice had kept me tied up in the basement while they were trying to take over the world (again).

Anyway, if you haven’t been keeping up with what’s going on over at AlsBand.net, you can now purchase their song on iTunes, Al’s Band, PayPlay.fm and LaLa.com.  Very spiffy.

Also, it looks like a BRAND NEW SONG called “We’ve Never Been To Hawaii” is going to be released very soon.  Hmm, I wonder what it’ll be about.

AlsBand.net – Update

As a commenter mentioned in the previous post, there’s a bit news on AlsBand.net.  After the initial intro, you can click on to get the raison d’etre of the website:

Hi Fans and Friends!

People often ask us what it’s like to be in Al’s band. They say “Hey, Steve! What’s it like to be in Al’s band?” Sometimes they say “Hey, Bermuda! What’s it like to be in Al’s band?” Also heard is “Hey, Jim! What’s it like to be in Al’s band?” Not to mention… well, you get the idea.

So, we thought we’d record a song that tells our story and answers some of the questions we hear including, but not limited to, the aforementioned “What’s it like to be in Al’s band?” Performed by all of us (Steve, Bermuda, Jim, and Rubén), it’s an extravaganza of musical reflections on our journey thus far…

AND IT’S SCHEDULED FOR RELEASE ON
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 18TH!!!

Stay tuned for more info!

Al’s Band

Woo!  Less than a week away!  Can’t wait to hear what they got in store.
