In Boston for the summer @ Berklee honing skills, getting inspired for new recording this fall. Music scene here is amazing. Check out a cappella band Duwende and their mightily impressive Michael Jackson covers.
Loading up for Lonesatar RG Zombie Prom in Austin tonight. Lots of peeps will be in costume and made-up (including us!) and we've got a special-themed set list prepared. Should be fun! Stay tuned for pix!
Off to practice new song "Out Of Time" as well as other originals and a few old favorite cover songs for upcoming Halloween-themed Zombie Prom we'll be performing on Labor Day weekend. Then preparing for photoshoot for upcoming EP followed by packing for vacay in Mexico. But it'll be a working holiday since I've been asked to compose a song for an upcoming film. More info later.... :)
Putting finishing touches on a new song "Out of Time". Interlacing themes of Zombie Apocalypse, end of the world, end of relationship. @_@ ALSO, MAJOR THANKS to all our fans, friends and supporters for spreading the word. We now have fans in ALL 50 STATES in the USA and 23 countries on 6 continents. If anyone has any friends in Antarctica, spread the word please! And always, pay it forward. - Kali
Taking a small break from performing as we work on some new original material and add a couple new band members to the mix. Welcoming new rhythm guitarist JON CASEL to expand our sound and give lead guitarist CHRIS ALTER more room to rhapsodize. Also looking forward to some epic guitar twinning! Sadly, our beloved bass god, ALEX SALAZAR is taking leave to devote more time to his original project, MEGATHERIAN. BUT we have a new aspiring bass god stepping up to the plate. Preparing for the next new phase of awesomeness!
Added finishing touches to vocals today with the assistance of screamer extraordinaire Joe Bustanji of Wake the Dreamless. An amazing vocalist in his own right, Joe can scream in any range and any style on cue and he adds just the right edge to "Love Game" and scariness to "Monster". Now for the masterful mix magic of our producer, Loren Moore. Stay tuned for these 2 tunes later this week. YEOWWW!!!
Finished harmonies for these 2 today. Now awaiting the awesome mixing magic of our producer extraordinaire, Loren Moore. Please forget that name immediately because we don't want him to become so busy and famous that he actually charges what he's worth or no longer has time for us. XD
Big Day! Off to finish recording vocals on LoveGame and Monster and then all recording is done for 1st 2 songs on EP! The whole band sounds AMAZING and our producer Loren Moore delivers the extra polish to make these really shine. It's nice to have your own songs stuck in your head for a change. XD
... @ producer Loren Moore's Nerol Studios. hehehe Alex was slappin' dat bass real fine and finished his tracks for both songs. Chris recorded numerous tracks - including a ghost track with electric shrieks for "Monster" (think "Psycho" shower scene :] ) - pretty flawlessly except for the 15th note on 1 of his guitar solos....Finish guitar work and vocals for both songs on Sunday.
Recording guitar, bass and vocals this week for the 1st 2 tracks on our upcoming EP. Laid down drum tracks on Saturday - went extremely well. Our drummer Brandon is amazing and it is a true pleasure working with a production pro like Loren Moore of Nerol Studios.
