Merry Christmas! Love, 53A.

2011 has been awesome.

HELLOOO!!!

WOW, we seriously have not updated this in way too long. Our apologies! How is everyone doing?! It’s definitely been hectic the past few months (to put it lightly) but it’s always nice to come back and check in so y’all know what we’ve been up to (and that we’re still alive haha)!

We did a promotional video for PUMA Faas, the new shoe from PUMA that is designed to be more lightweight and streamlined to make you insanely FAAAASSSSTTT! So the video was supposed to show us doing something really really fast as a band, but we figured it’d be too cliched if we just played really fast on our instruments. Alvin came up with the brilliant plan to shove a burger each in our mouths as quickly as we could, so that’s what we did. I’m only shoving half a burger in my mouth cause 1. I’m a girl and 2. I’m not gonna open up a platform for y’all to throw “That’s What She Said” type jokes my way. LOL

On a sadder note, we’ve recently left our weekly stint on Power 98 called the Wednesday Brew Crew cause my 1 year part-timer’s contract with them was up.

Right click HERE to listen to a snippet of us doing Rolling In The Deep on our final show as the Wednesday Brew Crew on Power 98.

It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had, and if the opportunity comes up again, I’d definitely give DJ-ing another shot. Unless you guys majorly oppose to it, then I’ll know for sure why they didn’t renew my contract. hahaha

We’re in the midst of writing for our new album, and it’s really been heartwarming and very encouraging to know that the people who bought Settle The Kettle love it. We’re still getting orders for it on our website http://www.53Aband.com, so if you haven’t gotten it yet, GO GET ONE NOW!!!

Alright, rather than yabbering on about random things, I’m just gonna upload a whole bunch of photos to show y’all what we’ve been doing all year. \m/
