Hey Everyone! Wow, what a crazy couple of months it has been for us! The new line up is having a blast writing songs at Chuck's STORM ROOM STUDIOS, and we are starting to book shows again too, which is awesome! Thanks to all of you that have come out to see us, and for the kind words and impressions about the new songs! We hope to track something soon to have available for download, so keep checking in! We were stoked to be selected for a chance to open the ROCKWAVE show for Filter, Chevelle, and more, and even MORE excited when we made it to the finals! Next Thursday, 09/12, at Dixie Roadhouse in Cape Coral, we need your help to get us that first place spot! PLEASE COME OUT if you can, and check out the amazing bands we are in contention with too! WAY too much talent for one town! Thanks for the FB likes, shares, and for spreading the WALLOW SOUND love on your own pages too, it means a lot to us! Tonight, we hit VOODOO in Port Charlotte for a righteous night of music, so come out and join us if you can! Until next time... Peace, Love, & Wallow (JJ)
Ok people, It is time for a little "Official Announcement" stuff. Wallow Sound as you knew it is no more. No matter how many times I type it, say it, or read it, it still doesn't feel good. After Deven's announcement back in February that he would be leaving, we managed to fulfill a few more shows and charity events. Now, we also must say goodbye to our guitar guru Chad, who is departing due to family obligations. It has been a remarkable ride for all five of us, and in the short span of time we have been together as an all original band (less than a year) we have met so many incredible bands, club owners, and fans that inspired us to heights we never could have imagined. It was a GREAT ride, and all of us shall remain linked from this project forevermore. Eddie, Chuck, and myself (JJ), have decided, along with Deven and Chad's blessing, that we will continue under the Wallow Sound name, but as a new band, with a new direction. We are no longer playing tracks from the first CD, but they are still available to you, should you want them as coasters, wall art, or to actually listen to. Just hit up one of us at any show! We have already begun writing all new material, which is a departure from the past catalog, with a distinct, driving new sound that is a bit more edgy and loose from the Wallow Sound you fell in Love with. I (JJ) have moved to the drums full time, with Eddie on Bass, Chuck as the sole source of guitar sound, and the addition of Greg Pope (of Pushmower fame) as the voice of the band. Wallow Sound thanks you all for your support, and for the kind words, high fives, pictures, stories, and Love that you shared with us this past year. We hope that you give the new line up a chance, so we can earn all that other stuff back again. Until we see you from the stage again, Rock on.........
So our last show with Deven at Voodoo was fantastic. He was a very integral part of this band since day one, and he will be missed more than I think even we know this early out of the gate. It got me thinking about my time with Chuck and Eddie, and how we played together in the late 90's and early 00's and then just seemed to have lost track of one another for quite a long time, only to have music pull us back together again. Music can help, hurt, heal, save, change, inspire, and much more. I know that our next Version of Wallow Sound will continue to write songs from our hearts and heads, in the hopes that they effect you in some way, some how. With that said, auditions are well under way, and we have had some serious talent come and jam with us in the hopes of becoming a full fledged WALLOWER! No decisions until we get to make noise with everyone, but rest assured, we WILL BE BACK, and ready to introduce you to our newest member(s) at the INK LIFE TOUR on March 2! Thanks to all our friends, fans, and family for supporting us during this changing of the guard, and guys like Andrew from Rack'em Billiards for understanding our need to cancel shows at the last minute when this took place. WE WILL MAKE IT UP TO YOU, and cannot wait to share the stage with the many bands we call friends as soon as possible! Until then, you can always jam out to us on Spotify, download tracks off Reverb or FB, or buy the dang CD on iTunes or Amazon! Thanks for sticking around, and see you at the shows SOON!
