To celebrate the release of their brand new EP and kick off their massive US tour, The Go Round is giving away "Open Hearted" as a free download. The lead single off Eastern Parkway captures all of the charm the band established on their debut LP, Gone, but sees the band developing a richer sound thanks to the addition of drummer Scott Townsend and Theodora Prunoske on the violin. The band was founded by two lifelong, born and raised, travelers! In fact, they met on an on ramp outside of Kimball, Nebraska. Brandon was working his way to Denver for a show that weekend, and Richard, having just finished hiking from the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine, was hitchhiking to Lake Tahoe in search of work in the Sierras. Guitars in hand, they got to talking about the odds of both being dropped off at the same time on a lonely butte in the howling wind. The two decided to stick together and make some music, and the rest is history.
