Pledge Allegiance To These United States

Way back in 2006 when I started this site, one of the first bands that I became friends with was DC's These United States. In December of that year, I interviewed Jesse and he talked about the CD that they had ready to release. Flash forward 15 months and countless delays later and A Picture of the Three of Us at the Gate to the Garden of Eden was finally unleashed upon the world yesterday. I'll save you from the endless gushing, because everybody knows that we've done it countless times and it has been mutual.

Anyway, to celebrate the release, the band just embarked on a full scale US tour. While they may be off sharing their music with the rest of the country, they do have a gift for you. They have made arrangements to sell the full CD on Amie Street for the almost illegal price of $3. In return, I arranged a special promo code for our readers. If you use "instrumental" as your code when you sign up, you'll have $1 credited to your account and then you can download the CD for only $2 of your own contribution. Pretty crazy, right? Well, get on it. It's more than worth it and this is a limited time offer.

This cd is brilliant, to say the very least. I didn't even want to get out of my car this morning after driving into work, blasting it the whole way.
