    Designed and assembled by the band themselves, this limited pressing of 400 discs has been distributed to family and friends as well as each of the bandmates' solo shows following the band's eventual break-up. Only 15 copies remain, so the former frontman of Union Pulse is personally making them available from his new headquarters in New York City, where he is pursuing a solo career. Each copy comes with two all-weather stickers featuring the logo of his new singer-songwriter campaign under his own name, James Tristan Redding. An autograph is available upon request, at no extra charge, but be advised that requires first removing the shrink-wrap. An autographed CD will therefor arrive with no shrink wrap.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Ten Year Anniversary via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

From the album "One Night Only"

lyrics

I walked the streets like a mind without a soul
I saw your eyes in the windows of St. Catherine's as they closed
And every hand I could reach for pulled away
It felt like freedom from the fall out on Independence Day

My legs gave out and I came down on my knees
The city shook me and my heart said, "baby, spin me slower please"
From somewhere far, far beneath the surface came
A voice of comfort and a song that somehow seemed to know my name

I'm gonna' be the last man standing, I'm gonna' look beyond these words
I'm gonna' blow the roof wide open, I'm gonna' tell the whole world what I heard
Stronger than a million countries, deeper than an ocean floor
Tell me can you feel this, baby, I'm gonna' give you what you're waiting for

Forget the times when you walked out on me
Let go of all your faded stories of the way we used to be
Give the morning sun a chance to make you smile
After all, the sky is clear now, and it should be for awhile

Remember sitting in the shade of an apple tree?
Fourteen steps from Euclid Avenue to the place we liked to eat
A hundred men with broken hearts can say the same
But I know deep inside your mind, you're still spelling out my name

I'm gonna' be the last man standing, I'm gonna' look beyond your words
I'm gonna' blow the roof wide open, I'm gonna' tell the whole world what I've heard
Stronger than a million countries, deeper than an ocean floor
Tell me can you feel that, baby, I'm gonna' give you what you're waiting for

Give me peace, give me patience with myself
Let me see the best intentions of everybody else
And when it's time to put my fingers to the flame
Give my purpose, give me presence, give me passion in your name

I'm gonna' be the last man standing, I'm gonna' make you eat your words
I'm gonna' blow the roof wide open, I'm gonna' tell the whole world what we heard
Stronger than a million countries, deeper than an ocean floor
Tell me can you feel this, baby, I'm gonna' give you what you're waiting for

about

Union Pulse Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Founded by singer-songwriter James Tristan Redding, Union Pulse was an idiosyncratic icon at the intersection of Americana, roots rock, and alt-country. The band embodied James Redding's soul bound lyrics and leg bending rhythm. In their decade of recording and touring they released five original albums (and one live EP) and delivered over 700 performances throughout the lower 48 states. ... more
