You are getting this email from me because somehow I've gotten your address--HA. nyah-nyah! :)
Actually, you probably purchased a download from either Test Apes or Maxbrodyworld. So, thank you for your support!
Recently, we started a Mailchimp account and imported all of our customers' email addresses. Mailchimp, if you have not heard, is an internet website service that helps with sending out mass email 'campaigns' for individuals, groups or companies whether its for ads or newsletters or whatever... pretty handy! (There are several sites that do a similar type thing. We just chose Mailchimp).
Essentially, this email is our test of Mailchimp-- from TEST APES (pffft)
Basically, the reason I'm writing is because I'm getting ready to start up a little newsletter or update type thing and want to know if you would like to be on 'the list' (or if you know anyone who would like to be on it, for that matter). If you would like to hear about TEST APES in the Studio, whenever we make a release, or are going to play shows... there is no action needed. You are already signed up. You will be getting an occasional email from us...like a fan-newsletter of sorts. When I say occasional, I intend for it to be about once every other month...maybe once a month...but by no means overwhelming anyone's inbox, and not very long (And--just sayin-- there is no way I'll tell or sell your info to anyone--screw dat).
If you don't want to be on the list please let me know by responding to this email and I'll take care of it, no sweat. We don't want to bug anyone. In fact, I'd love to hear from everyone, if you want! Hi!
With all that said, Test Apes has a few things to announce:
We're taping an in-studio performance on KEXP next Monday, February 29th, which will air on Saturday night March 5th at 10pm on the Sonic Reducer show--hosted by Brian Foss. Anyone worldwide can tune in via thier website, at www.kexp.org... and it should be viewable/listenable off of their homepage for about 2 weeks before it heads over to their 'vault' of such items... if you are not familiar with KEXP, you should. Its good.
We are finished working on a new, separate Test Apes website from the maxbrodyworld.com site. The address is: www.thetestapes.com
Yesterday I confirmed a show for Saturday, March 19th at Darrell's Tavern in Shoreline, Washington. We will be last of 3 bands, appearing with Guardian Alien and Lavacado.
We will also be releasing a brand new Test Apes LP (10 songer), called "REMOTES" on the 29th. goto: https://testapes.bandcamp.com/
