You And b/w Fairweather Friend is released by Fort Lowell Records on 7 inch biking red vinyl, limited to 500 hand-numbered copies. Comes with a digital download card. MP3s are mastered for digital playback. Vinyl challenged? Look for it at the usual digital outlets. Release date: March 26.Live date:
