Yes indeed a new year 2014. Wow looking at the last new post, I'd say we are a bit behind in updates. No worries at all the SwitchGear machine is still rolling after a great holiday season. We hope ya'll had a great Xmas! Big news is that we pulled up our socks and are in the process of recording our 2nd album. We do have a few sample tracks on the home page just as a sneak peak. Some new material is being rehearsed and will be included in our summer schedule (which we are currently booking). Summer shows are rolling in and will be added to the tour page when we are allowed to let the cat out of the bag! Stay classy GearHeadz!
