Here's the rub: Plants in Europe shut down for much of August! And, most vinyl production houses do not ship product during August and early September because of the heat. So, if we were to go ahead with the project as Black Button's KickStarter had indicated, we'd be celebrating the release nearly 3 months after we planned! UGH! So, they elected to discontinue the KickStarter campaign.
THE GOOD NEWS: The good news is that we're releasing the single regardless! The band is hard at work writing the next Violet Mary record which is due to drop in late Spring 2017. We have a bunch of great ideas for Raise Your Glass relative to that release and promise that the wait will be entirely worth it.
In the meantime, we have one small request; if you like what you hear, tell somebody. There's something about the music that keeps you coming back. Tell your friends. Import the CD and then give it to your neighbor. Drag your significant other and their weird-yet-oddly-fun friend to a show. The single best way to support an artist, a musician, a cultural-creative, is to passionately promote them. We're so thankful for all that you've done so far and, as Violet Mary moves into the next tier, we will need your help again! VIOLETARIAT, ASSEMBLE!
