Thanks to all those who supported us on the spring Europe tour! It was great to be back playing music in Switzerland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark and Poland. We look forward to the next EU tour!

The big news is for now is the global release of the 32 track, double album anthology, Forage & Glean, Volumes I & II, to be released on July 6, 2018. Forage & Glean is being distributed throughout the US through a partner in Los Angeles and throughout Europe and the UK via a Swedish distributor. It’s is already getting great press and radio airplay in the US and Europe:

“Gorgeously arranged folk-rock…Likely to get stuck in your head after the first spin.” —  review and track preview at TrebleZine

“Spine balances punk energy, his own political frustrations and bursts of guitar shredding with catchy harmonies, making for a sound that brings to mind the likes of Joe Strummer and Ted Leo but with a slightly gritty edge.” — review and track preview at Glide Magazine

“Personal, political, and variations thereof emerge on this fascinating new collection of Mike Spine’s best music.” — review and full album stream at Pop Matters

Review in Dutch from Belgium and a chance to win a copy of the album from Rootstime.

Review in Swedish at Ung Tro.
