Hey folks. Haven't posted on this page in a while. Just wanted to inform everyone that our album is now on bandcamp. It's super cheap, so tell your friends. Currently, there's no plans for future DBE music, but we're definitely not ruling it out. Thanks for sticking with us, and loving on this album for so many years.

~ Jack, Alex, & Blake

Hello friends. Yes, believe it or not... this is a DBE post. It's been a while, hasn't it?

Well many things have been happening for us, and DBE has been taking a break for a while... but rest assured: We're still here. Currently, we're not planning on releasing new music in the near future, but that could change. We're not calling this done, just on hold. Thanks so much for sticking with us.

Hey everyone, Thanks to all who came and supported oblio at those last few gigs. We really appreciate it! DBE is in a holding pattern at the moment. We're in the process of developing a new set of songs, & we're hoping to (maybe) track some of these into an EP soon... We'll keep you all updated with any news! Until then, you stay classy~

oblio & @alexstrahle are playing one last show at the Whiskey A Go-Go together!!! We're giving out FREE cds, & FREE t-shirts to ANYONE who shows up!!! 1 night only. Hope to see you there!

Had a fun time doing music for the Shepard of The Hills Graduation event. Hopefully more DBE gigs coming down the pike sometime soon! Stay tuned.
