First of all, we want to wish you and yours a happy holiday season.
Our gift to you is the same as it is (most) every month...a 7MP3. For December, we have a live version of "Times Like These" recorded in Ironton, OH earlier this year. As most of you know, "Times Like These" is on the Rock Crown release and it makes its way into a set every now and then. It's not easy to work in a 5 minute mostly acoustic song, especially in an outdoor festival setting...but that's what went down here.
What's interesting about this version is the extra verse at the end. Powerful stuff. I first heard the band do this back in 2006 and had forgotten about it until Danny Kent sent me a bunch of CDs featuring audio and his photos of Seven Mary Three shows over the past couple of years. A shout out to Danny for his support of 7M3, for his band photos (seen throughout 7M3.com and beyond), and for his newfound love of recording our shows. We're lucky to have fans like Danny and there are so many of them out there...you know who you are.
Hope you enjoy "Times Like These" and this photo Danny took at the Ironton show. We'll be ringing in the New Year with our first show in Casper, WY. See you in 2012.
