Rumors

It feels like it's been a million years since our last blog post, back in the day when it roamed the plains with the brontosaurus. There are so many things to tell you guys... where to begin.

I so badly wanted to keep a journal while we were on our tour back in August but I didn't and i regret it. We had an amazing trip to BC where we slept in haunted hotel rooms, met Kieffer Sutherland, played on rock star stages with some great talent, swam in the ocean, ate strange food, and had to push the tour van towing a trailer up a mountain to play a private show in the most beautiful place any of us had ever seen. A place that I doubt any of us would ever be able to find again. We met some great musicians, wrote some new songs, had a ton of fun, and made some new fans which was our ultimate goal!

Since we've been back we've written some new material which some of you may have heard at our first show back from tour on October 11th at the Tavern On Whyte. You also may have noticed that we had recruited a new bassist by the name of Genaro Martino. If you missed the show, James said his farewells mid-set as we introduced Geno to finish the set with us. We will miss James dearly, but he is taking the time out to put into his number one love, his recording studio Two Bodies Of Water Productions. If you are a band looking to record, James will make you sound amazing at a great price!

With James leaving we had to find a new jam space because we rehearsed at his studio. This is our pretty new home at the West Edmonton Music Society: 

Our new jam space at the West Edmonton Music Society

The West Edmonton Music Society is a society of musicians who gather several times a week at their space on the west end and play music. They have an open stage where members go and put their name up on the board and get a half hour time slot to jam, play a set, try new things...etc. Mike and I recently became members and have met some great people, not to mention have heard some amazing talent come out of there!

To top all that off, we filmed our first music video last month in a warehouse in the middle of the night. We filmed the video for our first single "Circles" which can be heard on our "music" page. I have been hard at work cutting and editing, and we are hoping to release it next month. We will have more details about it soon.

Until then we will be hard at work writing more new songs and planning more exciting things for the near future. We are also in the process of booking more shows which we will have up on our "shows" page soon! Stay tuned!
