Oh, One Last Thing. If Things are a little tight right now I can understand that. During the holidays we all stretch ourselves a little thin at times but it's also the spirit of giving that makes it so special. It's better to give than receive. So, we are giving away our 1st 2 EP's for FREE to folks who follow us on Twitter. Click http://twitter.com/mst0ne then click follow button in the upper right and you will be sent a download link for our first to EPs but like all good things this offer is only good until the World Wide Digital Release of The Sequel. So get on it and tell a friend or 2. Thanks Again for the support and I'm wishing for all of you the Best of Holiday Seasons.

Doesn't really seem like 7 months have passed since I was counting down leaving MN and releasing my 2nd single but it has. Now I'm counting down the days to Leaving TX and heading back home for the summer. I Won't Miss You MN remains my most viewed YouTube video at over 21,000 views. I'll definitely miss some things about TX but not as much as I've grown to miss home.
I still haven't been able to raise the attention of press in MN but while in TX I managed to kick up a little dust with the press.“Whiskey Talkin @mst0ne Swampy southern rock with big voice! Great sound..... Chorus is killer”
“MADAME OF MUSIC @OfMadame onTwitter @mst0ne "I Won't Miss You MN" Great song:-)) great voice ; )”

First I would like to Thank All of you who have Pre-Ordered "The Sequel" without you I would've had to do a crowdfunding campaign to finish this record and I did NOT want to do that. So far I've been very fortunate that enough of you want to hear my music that recording it has paid for itself. I'm not bagging on anybody who has, HELL, most of the known Universe is going that route. It just didn't feel right to me. Just a little over 1,000 of you will have the 3 bonus songs that will not be on the album and you will be sent those songs as well as the 3 remaining songs that will be on the album when they are completed. For the rest of you the 6 songs are available now as singles on http://markstonemn.com Including these 2 new Lyric video Tracks
And the 4X4 Favorite
Not to Mention the anxious for the weekend anthem "Lost Weekend"
Also Available for sale as singles "Livin' the Dream and No One's Leavin'"
There's no plans for videos for these songs or the remaining 3 but you will be able to hear them on Wednesdays at 5:30-6pmCST on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mst0ne if you are interested. Remember you can still get the first 2 EP's Free in the comments sections of these Vote pages until the end of June http://rotr.battleofthebands.com/u/mst0ne and http://warped.battleofthebands.com/u/mst0ne
