Mike Hale is a true inspiration to me. Last year when we first began talking, he explained his plan to me which involved writing and recording a new album and spending the rest of his days on the road. I hear lots of people say this and more times than not, they just don’t follow through. Mike, however, isn’t like most people. Days after In the Red finished recording “Volume 2″, he was already recording his 2nd album, “Lives Like Mine”. “Lives Like Mine” follows up where “Broken With No Hope” leaves off taking the listener through a very personal albeit heart-wrenching journey. Mike’s music is so beautiful and this recording has Mike playing a number of songs on piano as well as acoustic guitar. Fans of Mike’s last album will not be disappointed. We will be pressing 1,000 copies on a single LP out of an edition of 1,000 copies (300/700). We will co-release this with Hometown Caravan with them taking 300 copies for release in Europe.

The deluxe set includes the LP (grey w/ red haze), a CD, a coffee mug (since mike isn’t a big drinker), poster, t-shirt, coozie, and button.
