Sorry for the delay in updates. First things first, looks like the Sunset Rubdown 7″ ‘Introducing Moonface’ will be shipped on May 8th. An email from Alec at Aagoo Records stated that “there were some issues with the mastering”. A picture of the back cover was up at the Aagoo Records site last week which read that this release was “Written, Recorded, etc. by Spencer Krug in his house and Mixed by Arlen Thompson and Spencer Krug at Breakglass Studios”. The single is currently sold out, and we are unsure if the band will have any to sell on tour. As always you can check their full list of tour dates to see when the rubdown are coming to a town near you.
