update! we would like to apologize to those that have been waiting patiently for years to get shawn's 'live at the point.' it was originally supposed to be released this month but is now being pushed back until february 2009.

we appreciate all of shawn's fans who have emailed us wondering about the release date and have shown such amazing support. it would be tough to run this little label of ours without you guys!
thanks again...


just when you thought you couldn't get any sweatier or fist pump any harder, we had to drop the newest hotness album on you.

'we clear rooms faster than fires' is now on sale & ready to be purchased. while you are supporting tate for a great cause, you might as well pick yourself up eliza magazines "album of the year." ----> the hotness


our dear friend tate was in a terrible car accident the other night. fortunately, he is going to live, but has to go through a ton of surgery and will be laid up for a while. tate is the singer/songwriter behind great projects like the lionelle and spooky moon & he also plays bass for the hotness. on top of that, he is just a fantastic guy. we are trying to collect money to help with all of his bills that will come from this, so if you could donate that would be great!! go here ---> sound vs. silence webstore


hey guys, 'let it all begin' & 'shield of thorns' will both be officially re-released on sound vs. silence/gator records on september 9th.

they have both been repackaged with a different layout and 'begin' has 3 bonus tracks. 'live at the point' will be released at the beginning of november with all new artwork.
