WE WON!

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 guitar- AGAIN!

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 deborah.odle-mancienne@aa.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.
