We are on a 30 day tour around America. We have not done a long 30 day tour since last summer when we toured with the Toadies which was the best tour we have ever done.
We are out here pounding the pavement in support of our new record, "Everyone".
Our album came out digitally in November and then our label released the CD one month later in December.
Yes we think that this is a weird way of doing things also. We released our album digitally in November which is the absolute worse time to release an album unless of course it is December which is when we released our CD. We did a couple of dates with our friends Delta Spirit and a small 1 week tour on our own. There is not a lot of touring going on at Christmas time but our mini tour was fun. Our guitar player could not tour with us so our friend James came out on the road with us...it was fun.
So here we are out touring America. We have so far hit Chicago, St. Louis, and Memphis. Three of the best cities in America. We would like to say thanks to all the great fans that have come out to support us at these shows. It means so much to us. It was really great to see all our old friends in Memphis. We had people at this show from back when we used to play Murphys.
We have many dates coming up and we look forward to seeing all of our old friends and fans at the shows and we look forward to hopefully seeing lots of new faces.
Love The Willowz

The Delta Spirit + The Willowz = True Love
We just spent the past 2 weeks touring with our old friends the Delta Spirit. A grand time was had by all. The first week started off in Cambridge moving into Philly stopping off in DC and swinging it back up to New York City and then heading over the Manhattan Bridge to Union Hall. We took the weekend off to watch the super bowl and then we repeated the whole itinerary again for the second week. We had a great time and we had lots of adventure. Like the night of the big snow storm. Driving from Philly to New York after the show was one of the scariest drives ever. In DC the valet attendant wrapped our van around a poll and promised us a free hotel for the next week but only the show got cancelled because DC shut down for the storm. DC is not built for snow storms. That’s the thing about New Yorkers, they party rain snow or sunshine. The clubs are always full no matter what kind of hurricane, monsoon, or blizzard comes their way. We would like to thank all of our fans that made it to our shows and all of Delta Spirits very generous fans. We are sorry to DC for having to cancel because DC is truly one of the best cities to play. Everyone in DC really appreciates music and we love that. We would like to thank The Delta Spirit for taking us out with them and we would like to wish them luck with their amazing new record. The Delta Spirit…..the best live band in America!
This video is the last night of tour before going our separate ways.

We are thinking about maybe having one of our fans design our next tshirt.
In the past we have had many fans bring us amazing drawings and artwork. We are thinking about possibly mass producing one of these artworks as our next tshirt.
We have decided to have a tshirt contest. If you would like to submit your design for our next tshirt then please do so. The tshirt can or does not have to be this album oriented. The tshirt can include our name or doesn't have to.
So if you think that you might have our next tshirt design at the tip of your pencil please send a high quality image to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winner of the contest will be able to see their design mass produced and on people throughout the world. We will also give you a box of signed Willowz merchandise.
Let the tshirt designing begin!!!
