Hi everybody,

we tidied up our bandcamp-shop a bit. Now you can buy FRIENDSHIP MANIEFESTO in the most independent way: every cent you spend on this shop will support September Leaves directly. So your money won’t be stuck at big companies who have fruits with bites as their logos.

At the moment there are two packages you can purchase:
1. digital downloads
2. digital downloads + CD

We are working on a third one: T-SHIRTS. There will be a small surprise on that one. So hold on and come back soon!

Thank you for your support. We appreciate very much. Please share the music with your friends.
