At last a breath of only semi-polluted air! Tonight marks a pivotal moment not only in the illustrious music history of Wesleyan, but of AMERICA. An album that has been setting underground music blogs and unsuspecting young women’s hair on fire for the past few humid weeks is finally being released to the public: Chilly Phoenix’s long-awaited debut EP, The Trident, a breathtaking achievement four long and arduous years in the making. Robby Hardesty ’12 and David Thompson ’11 birthed the concept of this album through bouts of sweaty, drug-induced insomnia in the fall of 2007, and have been battling not only each other, but the dark forces of the free market to climb to this pinnacle of musical craftsmanship ever since. The Trident may be the only thing that can pull America out its Great Impoverishment–get it before the Internet explodes all over your keyboard. This shit is safer than gold and may just be the Next Big Market. The supply is limited and the demand is high, so prices may shoot through the roof if you don’t act soon.
If you purchase The Trident, you will receive copious amounts of bonus materials, including journals from the time of the album’s creation, personal photographs, speeches, treatises, expense accounts, and more. The album is available to stream or buy at the band’s Bandcamp page. Also check out Hardesty and Thompson’s day-in, day-out, soul-boning activities on their Twitter. Investment is preferred to thievery. No free lunches, honkeys.
