Inside AP.net Message From Holiday Parade Read below for a message from . The band's new album, Holiday Parade Tickets & Passports, was released today and is now available on iTunes.
MessageHello Everyone! Today is a day that we over at the Holiday Parade camp have been anxiously anticipating for the last 2 years. The release of our full-length album ‘Tickets & Passports’ is finally here, and I couldn’t be more stoked. Thanks to everyone who has been involved in what we do, especially Frank, Zack and Kenneth, Jeff, and especially you all for making my dream of playing music real. For the last 3 years you guys (especially everyone at ap.net who has supported us) have stuck by us through both the good and not-so-good times and helped us become the band we are today. Being an independent is definitely not easy, we rely a tonnnnn on the relationship we have with our listeners. At the end of the day I firmly believe that is the most important part of developing a grassroots following, and keeping things real is really the only way we know how to do things. Thank you all for being a part of this.
Anyways, be sure to go pick up the record on iTunes. Or if you are broke go check it out on www.purevolume.com/holidayparade (we are streaming the whole thing for the next few days over there), and let us know what you think!
Thank you all again for believing in what we do. It means so much more than you know.
Andy, Kenny, Michael and Joel

Tits. It wasn't up on purevolume when I checked earlier.
I'll definitely be picking this up when I see them in May.

Listening for the second time already. Loving it.

Question for the band, is that CD 20 pack seriously just 20 copies of Tickets & Passports?
If so, I'd love to pick that up and help spread the word.
And just to let you know, my girlfriend (who only liked Crimson) gave my mix to her friend who likes you guys a lot. So I guess she isn't a total loss.

People tell me slow my roll.
I was surprised when I read Blake Solomon's review. I think it's unfair that he gives 70% to an album like
Can't Stop, Won't Stop, by a signed band that reflects nothing more than partying, and then giving 45% to a debut album by an unsigned band that, to me, reflects honesty and genuine passion in the music they play.
