The Horse Latitudes

Is a less-than two year existence entirely too early to release an anthology CD? Not when you’re THE PROMISE RING and you’ve already chalked up two singles, a split 7″, and a couple of new songs that you’re just dying to release because it’s been, oh, only a few months since your debut full-length LP hit the shops. Apparently, these guys have no idea what it means to go resting on your laurels.
