We are pleased to announce that The Nobility’s full-length album #3, Ashford Castle, finally has a release date: February 19th, 2016. For the generous Kickstarters who contributed to the making of said album, you will be receiving your much-deserved rewards in the next couple of weeks.
Once again, our sincerest gratitude to everyone for their patience on this. Recording music can be an arduous task and it has most definitely taken us longer than expected to get these songs into the shape they needed to be in. We’re convinced that, in the end, it was time well-spent. You’ve waited a long time, so here is some actual music to listen to – a song from the upcoming record called “On The Sly.” Please enjoy:
Also, we may be playing shows in your town in coming months… stay tuned for tour details!
Auld Lang Syne and happy 2016 to you all!
Thank you to all who came out to the show on Saturday. We had a jolly good time! Next up for The Nobility: release an album. It’s just a few short weeks away from being in your hands… stay closely tuned for details on that, coming very soon.

This coming Saturday, December 5th, we will join our amazingly talented friends The Secret Sisters for a Christmas-y show at the historic Lindsley Ave. Church of Christ in downtown Nashville. The show is all ages and starts at 7:30 sharp. Only admission is a brand new, unwrapped toy which will benefit Nashville area children this Christmas.

To all the friendly friends who helped us Kickstart a new album: be sure to check your electronic mail today for a few exclusive Thanksgiving treats, especially for you.
In honor of Marty McFly’s arrival in future, The Nobility will be playing an Enchantment Under the Sea-themed rock and roll show with friends Magnolia Sons on Wednesday, Oct. 21st at The High Watt in Nashville. Bring a friend and a sixer of Tab.
See you there!
We spent last week in the studio recording a new Nobility tune with The Secret Sisters on lead vocals, and it’s quite possible that we’ve never sounded better. The song ‘Hope You Still (Want to Be Loved)’ will be the B-side on our first 7″ vinyl single – we’re excited for you to eventually hear it.
To all you generous Nobility Kickstarter backers:
Just wanted to send along a quick hello as well as some reassurance that we have not forgotten that we’re supposed to be making an album right now. We are indeed still chipping away, but unfortunately haven’t been able to move as quickly as we had originally hoped. We’ll spare you the boring details, but rest assured that we are working as quickly as our little Nobility calendars will allow. As of now, we are aiming for an early 2016 release to the general public. However, as loyal Nobility backers, you will be receiving the music (as well as your other rewards) much sooner than that.
Speaking of calendars, one exciting bit of news is that in August we will be recording a brand new Nobility tune for the B-side of our 7″ vinyl release, featuring the ridiculously talented and nice The Secret Sisters on lead vocals. We’re quite stoked about it.
In case you’re interested, here’s how the album is shaping up so far:
1. Ashford Castle
2. Wonderful Night
3. Heart Is Strange
4. Rollin’ in the Aisle
5. I Can’t Tell You Why
7. Mrs. Judy May
9. On the Sly
10. Walk Into The Light
11. Hope You Still (Want to Be Loved) – featuring The Secret Sisters (7″ vinyl B-Side)
Thank you again for your generosity, both with your finances and patience. We think this album is going to be worth the wait.

Generous/Patient Friends and Loved Ones,
Hello again. We think of you often and how grateful we are for the chance you gave us to record another album-worth of our music. We are still very much humbled by your incredible generosity.
We wanted to give you a quick update on what we’ve been up to since the end of our Kickstarter campaign in October:
After several months of rehearsing and, for at least one of us, becoming a father, we spent four days at Reel Recording studio at the end of April getting the best possible live takes of guitars, bass, drums and piano/keyboards. Having accomplished this mission, we are now in the throes of piecemeal-ing nights, afternoons and lunch breaks together at Cheyenne’s home studio to record vocals, handclaps, trombones, power drills, etc. We’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
In an ideal scenario, we hope to complete the recording/mixing process by the beginning of July, have the songs mastered shortly thereafter, and then send it off to be pressed into a physical album. If all goes as planned, we could potentially have something in your hands and ears by Labor Day. Either way, as soon as it’s all done, The Nobility Swag Machine will start cranking out your hard-earned Kickstarter rewards and Three Men and a Baby reenactments. Making an album is sometimes a tedious process, but like the motto on The Nobility family crest says, “Patience and Fortitude.”
Again, let us reiterate our gratitude to you all for helping make this project possible. We literally couldn’t be doing this without you. Can’t wait for you to hear this album.
Recording for Nobility full-length record #3 begins next week! We’re stoked and ready.
For all you kind Kickstarter contributors – give us a few weeks for the recording dust to settle and we’ll get you all the details about your much deserved swag rewards!
XOXO, The Nobility
