“In Flames / Shotgun” limited split 7″ releases Valentine’s Day

Two years ago, The Glowing Stars released its first demo track “I Know Now” on Valentine’s Day 2011. Here we are again, approaching Valentine’s Day 2013, and we have our last gift to our fans:

The much anticipated Crashfaster / The Glowing Stars limited split 7″ vinyl is finally here! On one side is crashfaster’s newest track “In Flames,” and on the other side will be “Shotgun” by yours truly. The vinyl is extremely limited as only 250 were made, and the vinyl colors are random. The album will be available on Thursday, February 14, 2013 on both the Crashfaster Bandcamp site and The Glowing Stars Bandcamp site for $15 (+$5 shipping in the US). The song will be FREE to download, and will include an LSDJ .sav file of all of our songs for our fellow chiptuners to enjoy.

If you pre-ordered the album, you should be receiving a shipping confirmation next week. Your order will arrive autographed by all members of both Crashfaster and The Glowing Stars.

You can also get the album early this weekend at Rockage 2.0 in San Jose, CA! Crashfaster and Matthew Joseph Payne will be performing and selling the albums. See below for the full schedule:
