here coming at you live from the Internets. I wanted to take a quick second and
share our pretty sweet show calendar and update you on the recording.
First the shows. We have shows to celebrate Thanksgiving, Ravens/Redskins
football, Christmas, the Mayan Apocalypse, and for the first time ever, New Years
Eve! I'm not going to share ALL of our shows here, but here are the highlights -

beer* and rail drinks until 12, free light fare buffet, 1am continental breakfast
and free champagne toast at midnight! Plan to rock your New Years Eve with SotR
- there is no better value out there.
SotR is hard at work on our
second studio album. We're anticipating a release party in Spring of 2013 - but
details are pending on that. Currently, the band has almost completed tracking 8
songs, including some we have never played live before. We are simultaneously still
in writing mode, and are putting finishing touches on another 3-4 new originals.
So, what can you expect from
the new album? Will it be like our debut? In some ways yes, and in other ways not
at all. The sound of the band has evolved and you're going to find a broader mix
of influences on the new record. You're going to find some of our heaviest, most
intimate, most quirky, most aggressive, and most soulful songs yet on this record.
While the songs are unmistakeably SotR, the album will show more diversity and will
include some unexpected surprises. That probably doesn't tell you very much, but
it's all I got, folks.
planning for the album to be released simultaneously on CD and for download online,
and we'll stream some samples for you in advance. For the most current updates on
the recording process and the run-up to the release, follow us on Twitter (@Sonsoftheradio)
That's about all
for now. if you have input or comments on what you'd like to hear out of the band,
or just want to show some love, leave us a comment.
We'll catch you at a show very soon.
