It's been a while since our last post and we've got a ton of big news to announce. First and foremost we will be recording @ Rough Magic Studios/The End April 6, 7th. This effort will be co-produced by Brian Crowe. We encourage everyone to check out the studio, they are a first-class operation. Our next big event will be a VIDEO SHOOT/ CELEBRATION of Kit Kelly's 40th Birthday, MARCH 25th, 7pm, @ our new rehearsal studio @ City Closet Storage, 2 Prince St., Brooklyn, rm. 1124. We have locked in several camera people and will be recording 3 separate sets with all our Sons and Daughters of Saturn rocking out! Hope to see everyone there. Did we mention the FREE BEER?!?!?!? As soon as we finish the post-production on the recording, we will be playing shows to support the release so stay tuned to our usual channels (facebook, twitter, etc.) for updates of forthcoming shows!! Do it for the love, or not at all!!!
Just wanted to give a shout out to all the families, all the bands, all our peeps who are struggling through the aftermath. We know you are tired and frustrated with the reconstruction efforts and wish you all the best as you rebuild your homes and your lives.
Kronos Effect has been invited to play at the NYC ALTERNATIVE ROCKS FESTIVAL in November! We want to thank all the Sons and Daughters of Saturn for coming to our Bar Matchless show in August. Because of our strong showing there we have earned a spot at the ALTERNATIVE ROCKS FEST. The show will be November 17th, 10pm, at our home away from home LOCAL 269, 269 East Houston, NYC!! We love this place, it is intimate with a great sound and the bartenders rock! Hope to see you all there. We've got some great surprises planned for the show, rumors of merch abound.....he he.
So we have 2 new shows to look forward to : the first, July 23rd, Saturday, will be with our buddies Stoke Motive and the Buzzcuts @ L.P. & Harmony, 683 Grand St., Brooklyn. And the second, August 17th, Wednesday, @ Matchless, Greenpoint (also with our Roxy Rehearsal companions Stoke Motive and the Buzzcuts). We will be DEBUTING 2 new songs @ L.P. and Harmony so be sure not to miss them!!
On a lighter note, the rumors are true, Mr. Kit Kelly of Kronos Effect was seen handling the last two verses of Alchohol w/ Gang Green @ Europa last Saturday. Fulfilling a teenage dream, though at the same time thoroughly eliminating another, he was quoted as saying, "that was so fucking awesome!"
We are currently working on recording 2 new songs so stay tuned for their release in the near future.
To the Sons and Daughters of Saturn we say, "Do it for the love, or not at all."
We have launched a new promotional campaign using our Facebook profile (www.facebook.com/kronoseffect) in conjunction with our website (www.kronoseffect.com) and our ReverbNation profile (www.reverbnation.com/ kronoseffect). Just wanted to take a minute an introduce some new members of our staff.
Lisa Cohen has worked professionally with area bands as a promotional and marketing consultant and will be contributing in artist management and promotional capacities, we are pleased to have her join the team!
Martina Schuetzenhoefer has volunteered for the street team and will be providing social media and blog support. She is a through and through Kronos Effect fan who has supported us from the beginning, we are lucky to have her.
Last and certainly not least, Nico Kwan will be joining the Kronos Effect team as well. She is a Brooklyn based, visual artist who will be contributing to social media networking and fan outreach responsibilites.
Over the past week this campaign has boosted our ReverbNation profile traffic, increased our widget and music player hits, and pushed Kronos Effect 4,000+ positions on the ReverbNation local chart and 94,000+ positions on the R.N. worldwide chart.
We want to thank everyone for their hard work and especially our fans, who continue to help spread our music around the globe. Remember to tell all your friends about our unique Acousticore sound!
