And now, for a bit of story time. For those unfamiliar, The First 100,000 and 200,000 Gazes are compilations that celebrate the number of blog views When The Sun Hits has received since it was begun in July 2010. We were shocked that we ever reached 100,000- that's a hell of a lot of people looking at our blog! We remember (vaguely) when When The Sun Hits was but a mere twinkle in Danny Lackey and Amber Crain's eyes. Now it's 1.5 years old (that might as well be a bazillion in blog years) and has been gazed at nearly 200,000 times. TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND TIMES. We can hardly believe it. When The Sun Hits now has an international following, a radio show on Strangeways radio, merchandise, compilation releases, and a staff of about 10 starry eyed shoegazers. We are beside ourselves with excitement about this unexpected turn of events, and we are beyond grateful to all of our readers. Keep gazing, everyone. We know we will.
Limited Edition Posters of Volume One and Volume Two Cover Art will soon be available. These will be an extremely limited run of 10 each. More on that later!
