Big changes for 2009


Hope everyone had a great Christmas and you are all ready for the new year!  We’ve been hard at work here getting ready for 2009 and I wanted to let everyone know what we’ve got planned for the year ahead.

First….some website changes.  Obviously we’ve added a blog section, video section and coming soon is a street team section, which we hope to finally implement.  The photo section and home page will get some much needed updates as well.

Second….if all goes well, we will begin recording our follow up CD to Let it Shine in March.  No release date set yet, but it shouldn’t take quite as long as Let it Shine did.  We have most of the material picked, but if there are any songs you would especially like to have added, feel free to let me know.

In addition to the studio album, we’ve been tentatively talking about an acoustic album.  We’ve had lots of requests through the years for recordings of our acoustic performances and that’s something we may explore further in the coming months.

Third….as you can see, we’ll be traveling a great deal in 2009.  We’ll be visiting a lot of places that we haven’t been to in years so keep an eye on the website.  We could be in your area.

Lastly, I think it’s worth mentioning that it was ten years ago this December that I founded The Stank, my awesome but unfortunately named first band.  I had the pleasure of playing with and learning from some amazing musicians through the years.  As a small tribute to them, I’ll be adding some photos of musicians I’ve played with in the last ten years on the myspace page so check it out if you can.  I’ll get those photos up, as well as a blog discussing the Stank years in the next day or two.

I really think 2009 will be a breakout year for us. Hope to see you all there.  Happy New Year!

Stank you,
Matt Martino
