Thanks once again to our amazing fans, we pulled through for a victory in our second round appearance last month! Phantoms and Pestilence put on a great show, even busting out some lighting and fog effects during their set to really build their atmosphere. We're looking forward to seeing what they do next in the local scene!
It's been an exciting and hectic few weeks building up to the semifinal round, which takes place THIS FRIDAY at the same locale all the other rounds have resided in. We've been hard at work writing and revising our newest material, we got a mention and play on Tim Lamping's Local Loft podcast (at around the 52 minute mark), and preparing for our back to back shows at the Battle of the Bands (7/22) and Brauerhouse (7/23)!
We're pumped to be taking the stage with our friends in On My Six once again- those guys always put on one hell of a show, and they've been keeping busy with plenty of gigs of their own. Also joining us that evening will be Atlanta is Burning and Bedside Alibi.
This semifinal round at Side Street Studio Arts is the last obstacle in our path towards the final battle. Much is at stake for us, and we are hoping that we can take home another win and get even closer to that coveted grand prize! So far, we've found this endeavour to be a challenging, creatively rewarding experience that has pushed us to new levels in our ability to balance writing with consistently putting on explosive live performances. Getting to meet all the other bands kicking around Elgin's music scene has been a pleasure and an honor as well- there is an incredibly diverse community out there with musicians representing a wide swath of genres.
As we find ourselves hitting the tail end of summer (ALREADY?!), we're hoping to keep up the pace with more live shows and plenty more new material to build on what we did with The Damage Left In Your Wake (Amazon Bandcamp iTunes Spotify). Keep an eye out and your ears open for all the neat stuff we've got planned!
For now? Mark those calendars for this Friday, July 22nd to add your voice to the chaos! Come down to Side Street Studio Arts in Elgin and help us march on to that final round!
