Hey all
    There’s less than 3 days left to preorder our new album, “Rise Like Fire,” by Jake and the Infernal Machine. If you wonder if you will like these recordings, check out the dancing baby.

Order yours here, and it’ll help us get the album professionally mastered. We are only a few hundred dollars short of our fundraising goal.

We’re really excited about the new recordings, which we’ve been working on since November of 2012. We have songs of all different genres, ranging in topic from the Greek Insurrection to gentrification in Boston, to our love for the Charles River. You can hear some early mixes of these new tracks here.

Thanks for the support,

Workers’ Panel Tomorrow

11 Apr

Dear Everyone, A spontaneous strike at Insomnia Cookies has sparked a militant union drive by the Industrial Workers of the World. The IWW has compelled Insomnia to award thousands of dollars in back pay to workers fired for going on strike, and has forced the company to lift the unpaid suspension of a union organizer. Insomnia has been made to post a notice pledging not to retaliate against workers for union activity, and rescind a policy that prevented employees from discussing their jobs and working conditions. The union’s goal is to organize the boutique cookie business. Find out why IWW’s say direct action gets the goods! Speakers will include strikers and worker/organizers on the front lines of the fight against exploitation and poverty pay. The event takes place this Saturday, 4/12, starting at 7:30 pm, at Encuentro 5, 9 Hamilton Place<https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Encuentro+5&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&fb=1&gl=us&hq=encuentro+5&hnear=0x89e370a5cb30cc5f:0xc53a8e6489686c87,Cambridge,+MA&cid=16219202531438979023&t=h&z=16&iwloc=A>, Suite 2A, Boston (at Park St T and two blocks from Downtown Crossing). The Facebook event is here<https://www.facebook.com/events/265605353620998/?source=1>. Read all about the strike & organizing drive here<http://iwwboston.org/tag/insomnia-cookies/>

Only 30 days left to Pre-order new Jake and the Infernal Machine album

Hey friends
    We’re getting really close to releasing a new album. Currently we’re working on final mixes, coming up with an album name and creating album art.

We’d really like to get the recording mastered, which will make it sound waaayyy better, so we’re trying to raise money through Indiegogo to make that happen. We only have 30 days left to raise $925. If you don’t preorder by then, you’ll have to wait until the end of June when the album comes out. Please pitch in by preordering your copy today:
