Dustin Kensrue
Singer, songwriter and guitarist DUSTIN KENSRUE will release his new album, CARRY THE FIRE, on April 21, 2015 on Staple Records/Vagrant Records. The new album is the long anticipated follow-up to his 2007 solo debut, Please Come Home.

Kensrue, known for his dynamic solo performances and as frontman for Southern California rock band Thrice, engineered and produced the record on his own while mixing duties were handled by Brian Eichelberger and the album was mastered by Howie Weinberg.

"This record is a study in contrasts; light and darkness, flame and flood, true love and senseless hatred," commented Kensrue. "What does it mean to 'carry the fire' when it so often seems like there is no light or warmth to be found at all? This is the question woven through the fabric of these ten songs."
Andy Hull
Andy Hull, is an American singer, guitarist and songwriter for the indie rock band Manchester Orchestra. He also has a side project Right Away, Great Captain!, as well as co-founder of a side project with friend and folk musician Kevin Devine by the name of Bad Books. Hull is also co-president of Manchester Orchestra's label, Favorite Gentlemen.
Gobotron , the solo project of Manchester Orchestra guitarist Robert McDowell, started in the summer of 2008 in the basement of his parent's house in Atlanta, Georgia. Manchester Orchestra was off the road and McDowell was anxious to creatively move in a new direction aside from working with the band. "I had been a bit lazy when we got off tour. I wasn't recording or writing at all then, so I went to Guitar Center and got a little MIDI controller and just started messing around," he said. "I didn't even really tell anyone I was doing the album until it was done. It was just me alone in my parent's basement."

Gobotron combines delicate and simple phrasings influenced from Ben Kweller to Brian Wilson, processed through pop-friendly static and piped through ear-buds waxed with Pavement.
