Those that pre-order the 12-track album via iTunes (HERE) will also receive an instant download of “Starry Night” along withanother new track, “Music Move Me.” SAND IN THE SKY marks the follow up to their 2010 full-length album Prove It (Stoopid Records), which debuted at #4 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart and #30 on the Independent Chart, and 2012’s acoustic album Gone Soft.
“We are beyond excited to finally release Sand In the Sky,” the band shares. “We know our fans have been waiting for new music and we can’t wait for everyone to hear it! Go grab ‘Starry Night’ for free to hold you over until January and then get ready for us. This year’s ‘Winter Blackout Tour’ is going to be insane and we’re stoked to come to your city and rock your faces off!”
