Update from #TeamAB – February 2012!
Audio Blood = Audio Love!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
It’s amazing how much love is going around today! And we’ll continue to dish it out tomorrow, next week, and well through the years so stay close to us!
We think Valentine’s Day should be celebrated because it’s the one day of the year we actually stop and think about all the beauty and wonder in the world. We’re surrounded by such inspiring art and music everyday that we deserve to admire it once in a while! Enjoy Yourselves Today! You’ve earned it!
We’re having a great 2012 so far, and we want to share some upcoming good times with all of you! We’ve got some amazing plans for this month and the year as a whole, so keep your eyes on us – you’ll be glad you did.
First off, if you like free music, then stroll down to one of your favourite local coffee shops and pick yourself up a free download card from Audio Blood. The pick of the month is Ben Caplan & the Casual Smokers and you don’t want to miss out. He is making appearances all over including Canadinan Music Week, as well as a show at South By Southwest. If you love his music, then be excited because he is playing every Wednesday in Kensington Market at Supermarket for all of February (well only 2 more Wednesday’s left! Check him out! http://bencaplan.ca/

This month is a big deal for another of our great bands: The Balconies. They have a fresh new video of their single Kill Count in anticipation to their EP to be released February 28th, 2012 via Coalition/Warner. It’s an amazing mess of raw Rock’n'Roll. Watch the video here. The Balconies will also be making appearances in Canadian Music Week and South by Southwest, as well as Edgefest 2012!
