Feature Article with Taking Back Sunday
I'm a little behind on posting, but the band and me (yes, that is actually grammatically correct) were recently featured in Ragged Magazine and guess who was on the cover... ohhh snap.
Click either picture below and you can download a pdf copy of the magazine. Flip to the back :)
Thanks to everyone who voted and made this possible!
P.S. The one on the right is another pic from the magazine photo shoot that didn't end up getting used. It's a great shot though. I'll post a higher res version when I get it.

Contests, Endorsements, and Shows, Oh My!
News, finally! Album progress is continuing. After basically a semester long break to focus on school, the record has been moved into mixing. Jeff (the recording engineer I've been fortunate enough to work with) and I are done with two tracks so far, and are making slow but sure progress.
Second, a new contest is up! The winner will be featured in ragged magazine, the official magazine of American Rag. The clothing line recently endorsed the band for our last show. Please check out the contest and vote early and often! The link to voting is on the left side of the page.
The American Rag Style Sessions - the showcase for the above contest (and fashion show) is on April 18th (2:00pm) at Macy's in the Briarwood Mall of Ann Arbor, MI. If you are close, come out for the show!
Thanks for the continued support and I hope to have a new release for you all soon :)
Quality first ladies and gentlemen...
So needless to say, the release date for Second to Dream is at this a point on the other side of a galaxy of unknowns. It has been infinitely pushed back, and I promise I won't blow any more anticipated dates until we are actually really close to the release. We still need to lay down a few guitar solos and backing tracks and both our time and studio time are hard to come by with school and studio use being what it is. But when the album finally does come out, you will be glad you waited (and glad we did too)...
Thanks for the support and patience, see you soon.
Myxer Feature + Second to Dream Progress
Just wanted to write out and let you all know that Wise One has been chosen as todays Ringtone "Pick of the Day" on myxertones.com for today, June 24th. There is a picture with a sweet writeup on the homepage, check it out if you have a chance here: http://www.myxertones.com. If you miss it or don't see this until after June 24th, it will still be up in the archived pick list here: http://www.myxertones.com/picks/0/.
Wise One is still available for free download, so have it sent to your phone along with Eraser for no charge! - Text "DFREEMAN" 2 to MYXER (69937) for Wise One and "DFREEMAN" 1 to MYXER (69937) for Eraser.
Annndddd the new album progress: We have had a grueling couple of weeks in the studio, knocking out tracks and parts until our fingers bleed and our ears burn (just kidding). Seriously though, all the bass and guitar parts are done, along with almost all the drums and about half the vocals. We expect recording and editing to be done by mid July with an anticipated release date in August pending some mixing and mastering. Stay tuned and thanks for all the enthusiasm and support!
Enjoy the summer and rock on :)
New album progress and show SOME LOVE
Spring is finally here! I wanted to write out to let you guys know that Second to Dream is coming well. Serious recording is really happening in the next several weeks, and I am hoping for a release in July. The whole project might take a little longer than expected, but you know its gonna be awesome... Stay tuned.
Also, send a text in to 66937 to show some love on this sweet map!
Send your text to 66937 starting with @eraser (and then your message) and your post will show up on the map! You can also 'join the mob' to get short mobile updates and exclusive content (like ringtones or wallpaper) when they come out. There's no spam, but if you hate giving away your cell phone number, you can sign up for my mailing list here - http://www.dannyfreemanmusic.com/signup.html.
Have a great spring, and thanks for the support as always!
A Month of New
I am very excited to announce my new endorsement with Luna - an awesome guitar company from my hometown. Check out their gear at lunaguitars.com and maybe even pick out a guitar if you feel so inclined :)
I am also pleased to announce a very exciting lineup change. I now have the pleasure of playing with Mark Peter on bass; he is excited to join Ben and myself in world domination... muaahhh
Anyway, Andrew is no longer playing shows with us (it was clean in case anyone is wondering) so now he can focus on his other tons of obligations here at Michigan... I'm very sad to see him go, but everyone can get stoked to see Mark at our upcoming shows following the album release, he rocks.
Until next time...
And now I get to do this-
And bow out gracefully...
Thank you so much for all your help and voting in the last couple of days since the mtv campus invasion competition began, it was off to a great start!
