Stay Tuned!!! More news soon regarding physical versions of the record, tours and all that's happening! 

Excited to announce THE TRACK-LISTING & Pre-Order Details for BOXERS starting OCT 1st!!! 


Super proud to announce the BOXERS digital pre- order dates & details!  All pre-orders come with an immediate download of the first single & title track; Boxers.  
,
On Wednesday, October 1st, you can pre-order the album BOXERS, for $11 on Bandcamp, and starting Monday, October 6th, pre-orders will be available on iTunes, for $11.  (Sorry for the different dates folks!  We ran into a technical glitch & are rolling with it.)
   Pre-order links will be posted as soon as they are available on Wednesday morning, and the following Monday morning. 

The rest of the album will be digitally delivered to you on the official release date of 10.14.14. (love how that date looks in bold)

The fun news is.... in addition to the (11) tracks on the album, there will be 2 BONUS TRACKS included in the digital album purchase.  One of those tracks was recorded during the BOXERS sessions, and the other is a punkier rawer version created during the demo process of "Then She Threw Me Like a Hand Grenade".   Both were aching to be heard & shared!

We've added an option for you to pay more than $11 in response to how many of you have asked how you can help.  Making records is still expensive, especially when you do it the way we decided to; self funded,  in a proper studio with a great gang of humans collaborating in the spirit of the "brotherhood of rock n' roll".  Please be patient as the campaign unfolds with physical product, and stay tuned for touring planned with a full band!  We're very proud of this record and plan on doing all we can for it over a long period of time.  Your purchases are sincerely appreciated, and will help fund our efforts!!!  If you can afford to, and are compelled to pay more, we can do even more.


Alright!! So now to the really fun stuff....drum roll please.....

Boxers was Produced by Kevin Salem
It was recorded live in a room with Performances by Brian Bequette (Bass), Tracy Bonham (Violins), Brian Fallon (Electric Guitar), Joe Magistro (Drums & Percussion), Matthew Ryan (Vocals, Words & Guitars) & Kevin Salem (Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Piano, Organ, Bass & Synth).

I can't wait for you guys to hear this record. Here's to beautiful noise that leans for something and means something. I'm a sucker for that kind of work. I feel fortunate to feel we've capture something top to bottom with that spirit. Grateful to the band and Kevin and all involved.

  • Alright, I rarely get (really) personal on here. But for this Throwback Thursday I offer me & my little brother. He's come to be one of my best friends in the world. I wanna congratulate him on some great ch-ch-ch-changes in his life. He's a hard worker and had to move somewhere else for a good reason. I'm wishing him all the best (always) but I'm missing that goofy grin of his (pretty much exactly as pictured). And yes, I still have that flannel. Wearing it right now as a matter of fact. Here's to brotherhood!!!
