Help us spread the word today. We thank you in advance for your support of this very special effort.

Also, our own Claire Campbell will be performing at a benefit on December 6th at the 40 Watt (Athens, GA).  The event is titled, Poverty Is Real, and is a benefit for Whatever It Takes.  There will be performances by some bigass names such as the Futurebirds, Patterson Hood, and Woodfangs.  Doors are at 8pm.  Tix are $10 in advance and can be purchased here:

While out on tour we dropped by Harvey’s Kitchen and worked with the wonderful Monkeywhale on a video for our new song, “Daniel Bloom”.  Check it the heck out!

Fall 2011 Tour & Album Update!!!

Howdy whistlin’ winds & swaying pines,

Hope For Agoldensummer is so excited to announce a big tour this Fall and a change to our album release plans!  We’re headed up the East Coast, all around the Southeast, and over into the Midwest this Fall!  We’d love to see your smiling faces!

So, about the album… Well, we got to talking with a few pals about the music business and the effort involved in self-releasing an album, and before we knew it a new record label had been birthed into existence. We are calling it: MAZARINE .  And our new album is called “Life Inside The Body” and will be released in early 2012!
