Little Update

Hello Everybody,

We've been keeping busy here on the Decoy front. Like we mentioned last post,  The album is a done deal. It's just about to be mastered and then we will announce all the details. Later this week I plan on posting a little unplugged performance of one of the songs you can expect to hear on the upcoming album....but it will definately sound more rockin' with the band!
