Today is a very, very exciting day for so many reasons! The biggest being that you can now stream the remixed/remastered “When the Sea Became a Giant”, which is available on vinyl for the first time ever! There is also a bonus track from the same era- one that we’ve always loved and are very excited for everyone else to finally here. We also took a new “promo” pic, which was inspired by, “Crap, we need an updated picture”. Listen to the EP here, hosted by the fine folks at Alternative Press:

Two, if you want to download the new When the Sea Became a Giant for FREE next week, all you have to do is go to the Count Your Lucky Stars Records facebook page and scroll down for a bit to find the status to share. It’s at 666 shares or something, and if we can get it to 750, then it’ll be posted up on Monday, along with ENTIRE CYLS discography. It won’t let us link to the status for some reason.
Three, we are literally in the studio right now recording our new LP! Cathy is recording her guitar as we speak and the drums and my guitar is already done. We can’t wait for you all to hear it.
FINALLY, holy crap! The amount of support you guys give us is too much, we appreciate it so much. Seeing how well those eBay auctions are doing is almost silly. We had one more copy of What It Takes on vinyl sitting around so we signed it and threw it up on eBay so one more person will get a chance to get one. Thank you all so much for everything you guys do for us, we love you! ♥♥♥♥

HOORAY! WE WON! American Airlines called me today and said they are sending me a check to replace my Gibson Les Paul Custom. Thank you American Airlines. But more importantly, thank you to all of our friends and fans that helped spread the word and sent e-mails/tweets/posts/blogs/shares, etc, without you, we simply couldn’t have done it. THANK YOU, YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST FANS EVER! To try and thank you properly, we are once again making our ENTIRE discography for FREE/pay-what-you-want for a week on our Bandcamp page (http://empireempire.bandcamp.com/). Not only that, but over at the Count Your Lucky Stars Records webstore, we put up two NEW shirts andddd we made our full length CD What It Takes ONE DOLLAR ALL WEEK! Those CDs come signed too. The CDs are at the top of the page, the shirts are with the rest of the Empire! stuff, in alphabetical order. CYLS shop link here: http://countyourluckystars.bigcartel.com/. Thanks again, everyone! We love you! ♥♥♥
American Airlines broke my Gibson Les Paul Custom guitar AGAIN on the way back from England, despite it being in a flight case. For those of you who don’t know, that’s ONCE on the way to England where I get it professionally repaired, and then AGAIN on the way back. I spoke to a customer representative, and they denied any responsibility, despite photographic evidence and proof. AMERICAN AIRLINES DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS. I am not giving up, I want a new guitar and I need your help. E-mail email@example.com to tell her to reconsider and for her company to take responsibility for their actions. Let’s see how many shares and e-mails it takes for a greedy company to own up for their mistake.
Here are all the dates, we cannot be more excited! See you soon!
