The two Texans funded the release through a hugely successful PledgeMusic crowdfunding campaign and as a testament to their commitment to fan interaction, they even named the album after one lucky pledger!
If you’ve not heard of People On Vacation it is the successful musical union of Jaret Reddick (Bowling For Soup) and Ryan Hamilton (Smile Smile).
Releasing on the 2nd February in the UK through Brando Records, the eleven songs on ‘The Chronicles Of Tim Powers’ are the end result of months of hard work by Ryan and Jaret.
Ryan and Jaret have sent a message to fans explaining the reasons for the delay, which cutting a long story short is that due to the unexpected success of the album before it’s even released they are willing to “sell out” to give the album the best possible chance.
‘The Chronicles Of Tim Powers’ first single ‘You May Not Believe In God’ is attracting a lot of attention and the accompanying video has been put on heavy rotation on Kerrang TV, watch below:
