The Show Must Go On- The Company Stores Album 3

Hello friends. Thank you for taking the time to check out our page.

We are The Company Stores, an Appalachian rock band from the great state of West Virginia. 

Firstly, we want to say that in a year where so many have lost their lives or the lives of loved ones, we have so much to be grateful for. We have our health, and no one in the band or in our families has been affected by the pandemic. There are many more noble causes out there than ours. However, since live music has been almost completely shut down due to Covid restrictions, we've had next to no revenue in 2020. This is pretty much the only way we can stay on schedule for our album, which is promising to be our best work so far. So if you'd like an album in 2021, pre-order it now so we can record it! 

Our plans for 2020 were to hit the road hard, raise funds, and save to record our third full length album. However, almost all of our lives shows have been cancelled due to the pandemic. We normally play 100+ shows in a year. This year we've played 5. We are scheduled to record in New Orleans, with producer Robert Mercurio, this winter. Robert's portfolio is impressive to say the least. He has worked with The Revivalists, Trombone Shorty, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, and of course his own band, Galactic. Together we have been spending countless quarantine hours writing and the rehearsal room, growing as songwriters and musicians, and are getting excited to present what we think will be our greatest record to date. 

However, since gigs are our main source of revenue, our goal of recording anytime soon is fading fast. At this point our only chance is to reach out to the fans, who have already done so much for us, and ask them to do a little more. 

Below we have a list of donations/reward options, as well as a video. Again, thank you all so much. We look forward to the day when we can sing, dance, laugh, and cry with you in a room filled with music once again.
