The Successful Failures are currently holed up in the FDR Label Studio embarking on their next recording project – the follow-up to last year’s “Ripe for the Burning”.

While the band is busy at work following up last year’s “Ripe for the Burning”, the Successful Failures have released a few songs that remain from the “Ripe” sessions. “Time to Sell” is a new 3-song, digital-only single which includes the title track (actually, one of the first songs written for “Ripe”) as well as “Fishing Boat Picture” and a live track of “Your Cheatin’ Heart” – a cover of the Hank Williams classic recorded last year in Madison, Wisconsin. The single is available at iTunes as well as CDBaby. Download and enjoy!
