    I don’t know of a particular album cover, but Joseph Habedank’s new album, Resurrection, releases on March 10.

    • David Bruce Murray

      Thanks Andrew and Damon, for the information. I will get that added to the list.

    March 10: Joseph Habedank “Resurrection”

    I believe it’s Daywind release.

    • David Bruce Murray

      Probably so. I have asked Daywind to routinely provide us with release dates a few times, but…

    ‘They were involved in a bus on Sunday evening’

    • David Bruce Murray

      Yes, the brain thinks the words, but the fingers don’t always type all of them.

  4. Tad Kirkland

    So is that the Kingsmen album title or have they just not figured it out yet? ;)

    • David Bruce Murray

      That is the actual title, but you can also say “they don’t know” (literally literally, not figuratively “literally”) the release date yet!

    • Kyle Boreing

      DBM, you HAVE to figure out a way to add “like” buttons to the comments….
