On November 11th our most recent LP turned 1 year old!

As a special holiday treat and in celebration of it's first birthday, we're getting rid of all shipping charges in the store through the 1st of the year! Thanks to all the support we've seen all over the country for this album in the past year. We have no intention of slowing down and we hope to see you soon, but we can always get there easier if you keep spreading the word. Please and thank ya always,

Opening for Jason Isbell & 400 Unit Nov. 3rd @ Taft Ballroom

We're most pleased to be opening for Jason Isbell and his 400 Unit at the new Taft Ballroom on November 3rd. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 day of show. We're big fans of Mr. Isbell and are quite happy that the Taft has asked us to play. We'll be on for Salina Underground on Oct. 22nd to talk about the upcoming show, as well as the documentary being made about the band as well as our plans for our next record. Thanks to all the folks that came out to Dayton Music Fest and Cincypunk Fest. We had a killer time at both and hope all those folks can make it out to the Taft in a few weeks. Tell a friend, tell a neighbor. Thanks for listening,

A little break followed by Dayton Music Festival.

Hey there folks. Thanks for a great summer all over the place. At home, in Dayton, Chicago, Lima, Toledo, Ft. Wayne, Marion, Lexington, and at the legendary Whispering Beard Folk Festival (where we remain NOT a folk band), we made a lot of friends and played a lot of great shows. We'll have the next month or so off until a gig at Canal Street Tavern as part of the Dayton Music Festival on Saturday October, 6th. Dayton may just be the best city we've ever encountered to play rock and roll music in, and Canal Street Tavern is a place that has housed endless nights of great tunes. We're currently participating in documentary being produced all about the band and are excited to see how it turns out. Check out some of the productions the filmmakers have been part of already here. We're also likely to be playing Cincypunk Fest at the new Southgate House in October as well. We're waiting for official details and we'll post them once we here. Tell a friend to buy a record and we'll see you in October.

Much obliged,

There Is No One In The Truck.

The tour had it's share of hiccups, but hey, it is rock and roll and overall it was our most successful trip to date! We won't burden you with negativity of any sort, and we don't need to because the awesomeness that we encountered this week far outweighed any kind of setbacks. Big thanks to Trace at Beatniks, Sam at Phantom Note Productions and Fireside Bowl, Donna and everyone on the staff at Tiger Room at Calhoun Street, Kate, Travis, and Pepper at Avalon Bar, Danny and Kyle at Revolution Collective, and to everyone of the volunteers and supporters of the Cincinnati Lab Rescue. Also, a huge thanks of course to each and every one of the folks that came out to listen and who bought our LPs, shirts, and CDs. We may not have got all of your names, but we certainly couldn't have done it without you.

We'd also like to thank all the stores that stock our records:

Culture Clash (Toledo, OH)
Neat Neat Neat (Ft. Wayne, IN)
Luna Music (Indianapolis, IN)
Groamy's CDs and Tapes (Lima, OH)

and of course, the one and only SHAKE IT RECORDS (Cincinnati, OH)

A special thanks goes out as well to Mama Lust, and to all our friends and family for support. The best part of being in a band is the people we meet along the way. We're all in this together folks, we hope you're enjoying the ride as much as us. Please do what you can to support all the places we've listed here. They've been super good to us and we want you to have a chance to see what we have. And we were saving a special treat for last, the sensational and great Heaven's Gateway Drugs.

See you all soon, somewhere far away.

Much obliged,

A few FFN shows have popped up recently on this site:
We're excited to see that people have been listening and we hope you spread the word.

We'll be at Galaxy CDs again March 18. Last time ruled, hopefully this time rules harder.

We're also making plans for a tour in May that will cover a whole lot of KY, IN, and OH. Likely some Michigan and Pennsylvania as well. Thanks for listening. Every time you buy OUR NEW RECORD Steven Tyler gets a new set of sucked in
