Hello Friends,
We are about to launch our first ever Pledge campaign to raise money for our next record. To learn more about how you can participate and download a preview of new OURS material, click HERE

so it's Pledgemusic (and not Kickstarter). Which I think Pledgemusic may be European-based given Revere is using it. I'm not sure why Jimmy/Ours would use it then, but so be it. I am glad to see him MENTION it, not show it already launched (unlike EvaRusnik and many others who seemed to have just launched it, without passing the word along for awhile about it coming up, 1st).

Also in regards to Black Card Events:

6/28/12 Boston, MA Johnny D’s
6/29/12 Buffalo, NY Mohawk Place
7/1/12 Columbus, OH Kobo Live
7/2/12 Indianapolis, IN Birdy’s

The upcoming tour is titled "The Ballet the Boxer tour," so that may indicate the title of this upcoming record. Another Ours album is a HUGE deal to me and the dedicated fans of them and Jimmy Gnecco. I'm not sure about the logistics about this campaign, and based on it, when this record may get released. For some reason, I wonder if it's more likely in 2013 given this thing is just about to be launched now. But I'm sure given a chance to chat with Jimmy and the others next month at the 400 Bar, I'll get to learn more about it then if not sooner.

As far as the preview of "Devil" I have yet to hear it, although I recall hearing it live I think. And there's a few other new tunes live on Youtube including 1 song titled "Surrender."

What that means as far as the bevy of tunes Jimmy has played live that have yet to be recorded or released like "Living In a Video" or "Wished For None," etc, maybe those will come out on a solo record or maybe some will be on this, some will be on his next solo record. It'll be interesting to find out soon though.
