The Skinny: For Affiance, it’s all about their fans. The band will release their seven-song, crowdfunded EP ‘Gaia’ on March 11. To celebrate the release and as a special token of their enormous sense of gratitude towards their core local fanbase, Affiance will play their first-ever, free hometown show at the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland, Ohio on the EP release date. It’s also the first time they’ve played Cleveland in well over a year. It is sure to be one of those “can’t miss” shows that fans talk about for months, if not years, to come.

The band will follow the Cleveland record release show with a performance at The Summit in Columbus on March 12, also featuring Monuments. “Since we crowdfunded this new EP, we wanted to offer our fans a free hometown show as a ‘thank you’ for the incredible support we received,” the band said. “We cannot wait to play these home shows! It’s been since fall of 2014 since we played in Cleveland.”

Affiance shared “PRSVR,” the first song from the EP, on YouTube – listen below.
