Merch in America?

Does anyone know if the band was able to bring merchandise with them for sale? Was there anything available at the New York shows or in Texas, and if so, what kind of stuff?

thx

They did not have any merch booths set up at the 2 Texas shows I went to, but they did have a handful of current tour (Fast On Wheels 2012-2013) t-shirts with them. I was lucky enough to have their tech guy give me one (I think because he saw me wearing a D-A-D t-shirt), but they were not for sale.
I also saw someone with the US version of their latest cd, which doesn't come out in the US until next month. I believe he was given that by someone with the band. Probably promo copies of the cd...

If you look on the band's Facebook page, you'll see a picture they posted from Austin with the Fast on Wheels t-shirt put up on a few things in the pic.

I picked up a pair of shirts and the new double disc CD at the Whisky. I'm wearing my shirt now at the PCH Club in Long Beach waiting for tonight's show. This place is weird, in a good way. It's been so long since I have been to a music venue where they don't treat the audience like the enemy. "Doors at 8:00, but you're here at 6:30? Sure come on in and get comfy. Wanna take that bag to your car? Ins and outs no problem. Wanna bring that bag in from the car? Sure, and no search necessary.". If I'm going to be here waiting for an 11:30 start time, at least I'll be comfy. Thumbs up PCH Club. Oh and they booked D-A-D. Highest props.

Nice score on the shirts & CD!
That's right, I forgot the US release is going to be a double disk! Wish I'd picked one up during one of the shows I saw. I wonder why they didn't do merch tables in Austin?.....

They had the new cd and a shirt for sale in Houston, the shirt is black with a beige DAD logo and a white Molly on the front while the back has the Fast on wheels 2012-2013 tour dates. Pretty nice items, enjoy !

I bought a shirt at the NYC show. I left that damn thing in the backseat of a taxi on the way back to the hotel. Smiley-midget-sad
