The Great Book of John — Today is the day!!!

Thanks to everyone who has been a part of this special event. We are really excited about the new album and are incredibly grateful for your support.

Spinner is playing the new album in it’s entirety all week long. If you like what you hear then pick up a copy of the CD or LP (limited-edition; contains a download) at the indie record store nearest you or directly from Communicating Vessels.

If you happen to be in Birmingham, Alabama then you would be well-advised to pick up a copy of the album from Charlemagne Records, Renaissance Records, Soca Clothing, Urban Standard, Church Street Coffee and Books, and Bottletree. A bonus awaits awaits you there.
