Madison’s state house area is pretty impressive. The state house sits right in the center and the road wraps around. Kind of a slow night at the Frequency. Some fantastic acts, but it was a little slow going. My wah pedal completely crapped the bed at the third song. If I’m lucky I can find […]

Henry tries his luck at an Illinois service plaza. Guess what happens? On another note, many thanks to Bassel, Milk at Midnight, The Cathy Santonies, and Rachel Roberts for a fun show at the Double Door.

5 days in. Chicago last night was great. In fact I don’t think we’ve ever had a bad show there. Wicker Park is a fun spot and playing Double Door was a pleasure. Seriously fun gig and the live show is getting better at each stop. An opportunity to sleep in though is always appreciated […]

At a very windy service plaza in Indiana. Recap of the show in Youngstown the night before, when James hopped onstage with the Young Stonians with his harmonica. Henry relates an incident involving a patron manipulating himself at the Youngstown show.

Aloud is less than a week into their US tour behind Exile, and things are going well by all accounts. The gang started off the tour with a trip to the 2010 CMJ Music Marathon in New York. Beast of the Northeast, a showcase sponsored by Ryan’s Smashing Life, Boston’s Weekly Dig, and annie*rock, went […]

The Exile tour is only a few days away. Suitcases are being packed, the new tunes are being refined a little more, and the old ones are getting a proper dusting (hrm… that sounded dirty). Everyone is incredibly anxious to hit the road, all but guaranteeing that someone will tragically forget to bring toiletries with them. […]


Last night was the mythical night off. I call it mythical, because we actually did have a queue of things that needed to get done; we just didn’t have to leave the house to do them. It’s all getting close to D-Day and there’s still so many loose ends to tie (this weekend’s already shot for […]

Michael Marotta caught up with Henry and Jen immediately after their “harmonious-yet-boisterous” set at Church to talk about the recent successful Kickstarter campaign, the upcoming national tour, and the months of couch surfing that await the band.

There are short bursts of panic when the enormity of this endeavor hits me. For the most part it’s exciting. I don’t know what the next few months will bring, but I do know this: we’ll be sleeping on a lot of floors.

…or “Tuesday Morning Round-Up, Pt. 2: Wednesday” In advance of tomorrow’s album release show at Church for Exile (*cough cough link to Facebook event page here*), Aloud has been getting some love from Boston today. This week’s issue of the Weekly Dig features a glowing review of Exile that’s left everyone blushing. Here’s an excerpt: […]

Jen and James, going over the set list.

Hello again, world. Just got back from another late night. Rehearsals have been running long, but it’s been well worth it and have been an everlovin’ ball. Ran through the set for next week’s album release show a few times. The live show has become a horse of a slightly different color than what’s on […]
