Bandits Of The Acoustic Revolution Biography

Last updated: 03/10/2010 11:00:00 AM

Just over one year ago, we released our debut EP "A Call To Arms" which brought us more attention than we honestly expected. Each CD case was handmade, to go hand in hand with our musical/ethical/aesthetic style, and therefore at times we fell behind in producing them fast enough to fulfill orders. As of this week, we've officially sold out of the last batch of BOTAR cds. With our busy lives, we just can't keep up with demand, as making each cd takes so long. We’ve kept a handful for personal use and keepsakes, but as of now there are no plans to make or sell any more copies of “A Call To Arms”. For those of you who have a copy, hang on to them. We appreciate your support and hopefully you will be able to add to your BOTAR cd collection soon (or not so soon, knowing us).

Most of us in the Bandits have used file-sharing programs such as Napster, Kazaa and Limewire for years now and it’d be hypocritical of us to try and stop the free distribution of our music. So, if you can’t beat ‘em (or don’t want to), join ‘em! The links below will lead you to the full versions of all the songs on our first CD, encoded at a high bit rate to ensure quality and a pleasant listening experience. Feel free to download them all (unless you already own the cd; there is absolutely no difference between the mp3s and the album versions so please don’t waste our bandwidth) and feel free to share them with whomever you feel might like the sounds we make. Actually, we encourage you to tell someone about the Bandits and tell them they can come here and download the entire EP free of charge. Go right ahead and put these mp3s in your shared folder for whatever file-sharing program you use. Share them with anyone who will listen!

If you enjoy the music and want to support our endeavors (we do everything from recording to merchandise production ourselves; what we can’t do we pay for with our own money (or college loans)) please feel free to buy a t-shirt or something. Thanks.

One more thing: For those of you that paid for the cd, please don’t be upset we’re now giving away what you paid for. Whatever you do, hang on to your cd booklet and sign up for our mailing list. That’s all we’ll say for now, but trust us, your support is appreciated and will be rewarded in a few months.

That’s it for now, thanks for reading. Please continue onto our sight for more info.
