- Two New Live Show Recordings Uploaded
I just uploaded two new live shows to the Spain subscription page.
As I said in the accompanying message, regarding the Spain tour in Europe earlier this month, for the first time the band's performing without a set list, letting the mood determine what we play and deciding songs on the fly. We played four shows and never played the same set twice. It opens possiblities which couldn't exist if we were playing the same set every night like zombies.
These live shows are essential listening at least for me as I'm starting to put the new album together. They are for subscribers only...if you're interested in Spain and in the new album please think about starting a subscription, it's not that expensive and helps us more than buying something from iTunes or God forbid listening to our songs on Spotify. - Josh

- Subscribe To Spain's Future
Spain's bassist/vocalist/founder Josh Haden has started a Spain music subscription service on Bandcamp. It's a great way to support Spain and make sure you're kept up-to-date on all the new music being made for their upcoming 2017 album. Demos, ideas, live tracks, and exclusive completed tracks will be available for subscribers only, and the first post is already up, the legendary 17 May 2016 record release show at the Love Song in Los Angeles, accompanied by a spontaneous and mysterious gospel choir. Your direct support is the most effective way to help keep the Spain dream alive and the band appreciates all your help. That link again is here.
