We had a great time in Chicago with our new friends in Foreign Shores, Z, and Dylan McFarling. Our next show is on Thursday June 12th at the Rozz-Tox.

In the Studio

The Effie Afton is going into the studio this weekend. We’ll be tracking Rhythm Guitar, Bass, Drums, and maybe a few other things. Ben will be adding his guitar in later on when we go back. Hopefully we’ll be posting some videos of what’s going on in the studio. There still isn’t a release date, but I’ll get that for you as soon as possible. Also be sure to follow me on Instagram. I’ll be posting pictures from in the studio.

 

Track Listing:

This Gentle Breeze

The Sound

Great Divide

Say Goodbye

Nothing Feels the Same

Truth Lies

Leaving Here Alone

Want to be on a record?

The Effie Afton will commence recording in the days to come. Our first record will be out by the summer. We will have tees and copies of the record at our shows over the summer, so be sure to check back often. We’ll be posting updates, pictures, and videos from the recording process. We have a song we’d like as many people as possible to sing on so if you’re interested in being on a record, just let us know!

Putting our best foot forward

The Effie Afton has a feature article available at http://localscenemag.com/node/TheEffieAfton. We are playing a Music Education Benefit on April 19th. It is being put on by the local scene magazine. We will be sharing the stage with local ska band, Fairhaven. Other bands on the bill are being announced as the date gets closer. We are SUPER excited about this show. Thanks to Roberta Osmers for the awesome article, and for the hard work you do with the Local Scene Mag and with this benefit.

 

We are also beginning work on our first full length soon. We are currently booking studio time. We have some great folks helping us with this record! We will give more information about them as we get further along in the recording process. It’s looking like the LP is going to include “This Gentle Breeze”, “Truth Lies”, “Nothing Feels the Same”, “Great Divide”, “The Sound”, “Say Goodbye”, and “Leaving Here Alone”. Plans for a CD release party are still in the works. The record will be available around May/June. As if this is not enough, The Effie Afton has also been working on new material just for you.

 

The tour we’ve been planning for May is being pushed back to June or July. We are still figuring out dates for this tour, dependent on what awesome bands we can play with. If you know of any bands/venues that accommodate touring acts, have them contact us at theeffieafton@gmail.com. Have a great day!
