As far as long term goals, none of us have any desire to be rich and famous. If we can keep connecting with people through music then we’ll be content. There are way too many bands out there already so we’re trying to make what we do a little bigger than music.”
Abandon Kansas, a new Gotee Records artist, are releasing their debut EP We’re All Going Somewhere on Sept 8, 2009. Here is the title track courtesy of the label. We’re All Going Somewhere

ABANDON KANSAS JOINS GOTEE RECORDS
We’re All Going Somewhere EP Releases September 8, Followed
by Fall Tour with House of Heroes and The Wedding
Gotee Records is proud to announce the signing of indie pop/rock band Abandon
Kansas to the label’s roster.
On September 8, the label will release their debut We’re All Going Somewhere EP,
available exclusively at iTunes and live events. Produced by Mark Townsend (Relient K,
House of Heroes), Abandon Kansas created a project that will surprise you with its
honesty and soul-searching drive.
“We finally found a label that fits who we are as musicians and who we are as dudes,”
states Jeremy Spring, frontman of Abandon Kansas. “We couldn’t be happier with the
way this record turned out, and the opportunities Gotee has already given us. We want
to make more music and we want to be able to release that is bigger and better ways.
Gotee is going to help us do exactly that.
“Mark also was a huge influence in helping us figure out exactly what kind of band we
are. He really set us free from our whole pop past and helped us find our voice as in an
indie band with melodic, pop elements.”
Known for their incessant touring schedule, Abandon Kansas plans to be on the road full
time the remainder of the year. Currently on the Secret Service tour with Sleep for
Sleepers and Hazel and Vine, the band continues their touring tradition with a hometown
album release show and then starting immediately on the Super Big Time American
Traveling Concert Tour with the House of Heroes and The Wedding.
