April 2011 Newsletter

With the budding of a new season comes the unveiling of a brand spanking new website for If you haven't discovered and explored it yet, the new site includes updated product pages and photos, an apparel quote generator, new blogs, a brand new IndieCard platform, and much more. Take some time to browse around the new online shop and feel free to return with some feedback for us!

More about the new IndieCard Platform...

Not only do we offer a good-looking interface, but we've also ramped up the features on the IndieCard pages for you and your fans! If you've ever wanted to digitally distribute more than just music, we now welcome you to upload videos for your fans to download. In addition to upgrading what you can give to your fans, you also now have the option to collect information from anyone that goes to your IndieCard page (email address, age, etc). As always, you also have the option to embed the IndieCard widget directly onto your band's website instead of sending fans to ours. With these digital download cards starting at only $89, it's hard to think of a reason not to always have your music on hand.

Opening night lands on Asbury Park's "First Saturday", April 2nd and it will run through May 1st. Trust us, you're gonna want to come out for this. Local favorite “Gimme Drugs” will be performing to make things extra interesting.
