Hey friends

I’m wrapping up this acoustic tour, The Living Room Tour 2, and thought I would update you all on all things Abandon Kansas. There are still a few dates of this pocket option bonus acoustic tour left though, and I’m adding a week in Oklahoma, just check the dates here on our website.

Many of you probably noticed that Nick Patrick is no longer playing with Abandon Kansas. Back in May of this year he stepped down from the band to head back to school and work. We spend the majority of the year on the road and Nick just didn’t feel like he had the passion for living that kind of life anymore. We’re still buddies with Nick, and you can catch him around Wichita playing with Don’t Give Up The Ship.

Meet Chet:

Chet filled in for us on a tour with Everyday Sunday this fall and officially joined us during our tour out west with House of Heroes and The Classic Crime. We went through a lineup change right pocket option promo before we went into the studio and Chet stepped in last minute and totally rose to the challenge. He learned all of our new songs and killed it in the studio. You’re going to love the bass lines on the new record! Chet is easily the nicest person in Abandon Kansas, probably the nicest guy I’ve ever met. Get to know him. You can follow him on twitter: @chetkueffer

We had a fantastic 2010 on the road. Thank you all for coming to shows and buying our shirts and cds and just being wonderful to us. We played more festivals this year than we ever have before and we had a blast! We toured with Children 18:3, Windsor Drive, Run Kid Run, Everyday Sunday, Kiros, The Classic Crime and House of Heroes. We release music videos for Close Your Eyes, The Golden State, and I Wonder If It’s Me. We bought a new van, got a new lineup, and recorded a brand new full length record that we can’t wait to get into your hands. We went to Ecuador with Compassion https://pocketoption.com.ph/download International and Brian got to meet the kid he sponsors. This was an epic year to say the least, here’s to 2011!
