Cracked, Flawed and Frayed has been out for a month today! We’ve been very grateful for the time so many people have spent listening to it. We’ve also been fortune enough to have a few press outlets take the time to talk to us about the album and/or run a review of the album. Here are a few of the outlets with links to the article:
HoustonPress.com: Brightwire Brings It All Together for New Album

The vinyl pressing is still delayed due to the pandemic and the freeze that hit in February. We’re looking at a mid-May release on it. They’re taking a while, but we’re pretty sure the wait will be worth it. The test pressings sound wonderful.
Also, if you dig the new album, be sure to follow us on your preferred streaming service! That helps a lot with us getting exposure to new listeners.
We hope the spring is treating y’all well! All 3 of us are fully vaccinated and ready to get back out there to do some live shows later this summer. Keep an eye out on dates. We just added one today with Grifters & Shills at the historic Old Quarter Acoustic Cafe. It feels good to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Be safe out there, friends!
