3 New Circus Devils' Ataxia Tracks Available For Free Download!

Been an exciting couple of days for Robert Pollard fans! The Boston Spaceships tour launched last night at the historic Southgate House in Cincinnati. And reports are overwhelmingly positive. The setlist was one of the most diverse and exciting in a long time (I will post it in the comments section below, for those who don't care about spoilers... like me). And the band supposedly blew the roof off the dump. Rawk!

For those of us stuck at home (like me), don't despair! There are 3 new tracks off of Circus Devils' Ataxia available for free download at the official Circus Devils website to get you through! This album is shaping up nicely- I'm already a huge fan of I-Razors and Get Me Extra. And my instant favorite of these new tracks is the spooky and beautifully sung He Had All Day...
