We recieved this retrospective from the american Post-Punk band “Bootblacks”.

WOW. What a year. It’s crazy for us to think that a little over a year ago, we released Fragments and went on to have a very successful 2017, having no idea how much bigger 2018 would be. We played some amazing shows with some amazing bands. Played 4 festivals. Recorded and put out a live session along with 2 new songs.

Made some awesome new friends and played in many new cities and countries. Opened for some heroes. I mean, the list goes on and on.

As the year comes to a close we just want to thank everyone that has supported us in any way. Bought our music, worn our t-shirt, come to our shows, told a friend, booked us, added us to a podcast, DJ’d us at the club, everything. Without you all we are nothing. There are too many of you to tag.
We have a lot of great things in store for 2019 including more touring and a NEW ALBUM. We look forward to sharing it with every one of you.
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.
Cheers,

Happy Holidays from Bootblacks
