Heyo!  Daniel with Unaka Prong here.  We're starting up a blog on the website as a way to keep anyone informed about the going-ons of the band, as well as a way to get a little more personal with y'all.

Here in the end of August, the band is staying busy.  Some of us are starting classes again while others miserably grind away at our respective day-jobs (halfway kidding).  We have a few exciting shows this week.  Thanks to some of our friends in APPS at ASU, we have the privilege of opening up for Moon Taxi at their August 25th show at Legends in Boone!  We're pumped, the APPS crew told us their show last year was the best show of the year.  We're joining Swim In The Wild at The Rabbit Hole in Charlotte a few days later on the 27th.  The last time I heard them play was a few years ago at Black Cat, so I'm excited to hear how they sound now.

A few more dates off the top of my head:  
The Pilot Light in Knoxville, TN on Sept 3rd
Center 45 Climbing Gym in Boone, NC on Sept 24 (!!!!!!!!!!!)
TAPP Room in Boone, NC on Oct 29th

Just finished Harvest Boone--always a fun time at those festivals and so many talented bands!  We played Blossom earlier this year, and it's awesome to see more and more familiar faces.  We didn't quite make it to sunrise, but we played our hearts out to a dedicated group of hooligans til the wee hours. Thanks to Jeremiah, Jon Rush, and the entire community of individuals that make those festivals happen.

Chris will be doing an internship in Charlotte for the fall, but we're working on booking what we can in Boone and around the state.  Potential tour for winter break, so keep your eyes out for Unaka Prong near ya!  Feel free to drop us a line if you think you and your friends would like to see us in your town.  We're in the planning stage of the new album, and we're getting very excited about that.  Lots of new tunes have come out of the last month, and I think everyone's ready to spend some time really exploring and piecing them together into another product.

We'll try to keep y'all updated with news and whatnot as it comes!  Big thanks always to friends, family, and random beautiful souls that dig our music.  We couldn't do this without you.
