Hey man fans,
Just wanted to keep you posted on a few things.
We have started a promotional campaign with http://bantermm.com/ and it has been going very well thus far.
Here are some of the things people have been saying about us:
“There are times when a guitar solo can say something more than words, so when an entire song feels like a series of intricate and amazing guitar solos that create an overall positive sound, there’s a good chance it’s worth hearing.” - 1000x/minute
“They create an extremely melodic and rhythmic mix with mathy guitar lines, prog-rock’s expansive experimentalism and a classic video game soundtrack’s winding interplay for an inventive album so engaging you won’t even notice that there are no vocals!” - Atlas and the Anchor
“Intensely layered and rewarding in a new way after every listen, these guys have a great ear for a complex but inviting melody and play off each other in a way that does justice to every instrument. Lead and backup guitars interweave and wind up and down in broad emotive strokes, with the bass and drums forming a strong anchor that hums along, endlessly urging the songs forward.” - Listen Before You Buy
“The Earth Is A Man have released a very fine album of inventive post-rock packed full of melodic hooks and dynamic structure.” - Proper Songs
Thank you all for supporting us! We love our man-fans.

Just a friendly reminder that we are playing Reggie’s this coming Sunday at 930pm.
Also, do yourself a favor and look at this website:
You Might Have A Moustache - a music video by Dana Pavisich -
Dana put together this awesome video comprised of heavily manipulated 16mm film.
We all think it is so cool!
We got some news for you: we’re playing a concert - our first proper gig of the year - at Reggie’s Rock Club on April 17th. Get more info at the facebook event page here: https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=117520438324657
If you pre-order a ticket, you get a discount!
Also, check out these amazing guitarists. Yes, they may have been trained in shady ways, probably involving sleep hypnosis or something, but wow wow we-wowww - this is a shred-fest of unbridled childish glory. We should liberate them from their north-of-the-DMZ shackles and re-shape their minds in the kindlier molds of math of prog rock - then start a supergroup, preferably with Ian Williams on eighth guitar:
Louis Knapp makes really cool art
