Our new album cover is all finished up! Our good buddy Bubba from Elm Street Tattoo in Deep Ellum did the design and our buddy Bryce from Red Star Recording Studios did all of the coloring. We are finishing up the inside art and should be going to press in about a week. It looks as though we will be having a release
date in August for "Can't Afford the Luck". We will keep you posted on release parties as we line up our schedule. Our first single from the new album should be going out to radio in just a couple of weeks!! Keep your ears on and please do request us on your local station.
We have a change in the band line-up. Our good buddy Rob Short has been playing bass for us for three years now but has decided to move on to other ventures. We're gonna miss him and wish him the best of luck! Thanks Rob for all your hard work over the years. It was a great ride brother and I hope we see you soon! Taking over for Rob on Bass is Drew Harakal. Drew is fresh back from Boston where he was attending Berklee School of Music. We look forward to many a mile with Drew and are anxious to get to work rehearsing up the new tunes!
We also have a new booking agent. Keli Pearce from 7th Planet Entertainment Group will be handling our bookings. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking forward to working with Keli and we are also looking forward to getting back on the road. We have had a little down time finishing up the album and we don't like down time. Check http://www.morobsonband.com/ for show dates as we are adding them daily. You can also hear a few of the new tunes from "Can't Afford the Luck" by visiting our site. Please join us on Facebook and Twitter as well. We're all hi-tech!

I wrote eleven of the twelve tracks on the album with a little help from a few friends. The one song none of us had any part in writing is a Chips Moman written tune ("Brand New Goodbye Song" ) as recorded by the late great Waylon Jennings. I have been a huge Waylon fan since I can remember being a fan of music and it was alot of fun to do a remake of a song he recorded and released. I co-wrote a waltz ("Lonesome Waiting at Home") with my good buddy and drummer Brandon Rice. Some of you may know him as Spud Crowley. Same guy. With the help of fellow songwriters and friends, Heath Webb and Jonny Hord, we finished up the writing of "Sweet Chiba, Mi Amiga" together.
The new album cover should be finished up soon. Our friend Bubba from Elm Street Tattoos did the design and he did a killer job. Spud recently had Bubba put a tattoo of Buck Owens acoustic on his forearm and came up with the design while he was getting inked. If you need a tattoo go see Bubba! We have been hard at work rebuilding our website and updating our social sites. We uploaded the title track "Can't Afford the Luck" onto our website (http://www.morobsonband.com/) and ReverbNation. If you get a chance please swing by and take a listen. We will be rotating the new songs on our website leading up to the release. Please sign the mailing list while you are there so we can include you in special giveaways and promitions we will be offering. These offers will only be made through the bands e-mail list.
More to come soon so please check back and tell your friends. Different members from the MRB will be posting to this blog as we venture on down the road. Hope we see you soon!
