Just for the sake of stating it, any help folks can give us w/ reposting this on other forums they visit / social media is highly appreciated.

This is always the case, but especially so w/ this release since it's just us (me, Buddy, SFR and our fans) pushing this album during a very busy release season.

So, if you like what you're hearing, share that shiiiit.

Thanks again. After a quiet 2011, I am chomping at the bit to let people hear the rest of this stuff.

I've been waiting for this to drop since hearing it at the Church of Love and Ruin last year... I think that this is the perfect example of an SFR song that is really emotionally honest and mature and shit... and yet also manages to be an absolute banger. love it.

I usually just check this forum out to see what people are listening too and what not. So after checking out the trailer and "Still Here" I must say I really enjoyed both especially the trailer! I'ma go all out and get your last release too. Better late than never.

The beat used for "Still Here" was literally one of the most important parts of finally pulling myself out of that tailspin... Something about those bagpipes or whatever that sound is that Buddy sampled. I remember listening to it for the first time and feeling the hair on the back of my neck stand up. 'They haven't killed me yet.' is the thought I immediately had when the beat dropped, and everything followed from there."


I think the sample might be of a traditional thai instrument. muay thai fighters do a pre-fight dance ritual where they pay respect to their teachers and try to ward off fear and weakness. the horn thing sounds just like the music they like to play.

Sounded like a typical maqrunah or mizwid to me. I'll agree it's not bagpipes, my great uncle joe never got that sound out of them.

just pre-ordered this, Cancer For Cure and finally got the download for the Metermaids jam. that Rooftop Shake sound cloud was on repeat for months last fall while I was living in BK, i figure i owe those guys.

I see the release date for HOB2 is June 12th, which is also my berfday. if that shipped like a couple days early it'd be a pretty sweet present, just saying...
