The Wrecking / Blog

We would like to introduce you to a good friend of ours!

Hey everyone,

Doug here. Hope all is well with you and yours! Just wanted to write a quick note to introduce you to a great friend of ours. His name is Michael Jones.

Over the past several months, many of you have met Michael at a show or festival, or perhaps even spoken with him on the phone. He’s a good guy, eh? Anyway Michael is now heading up Bloom Artist Agency which handles all of our bookings. On top of those duties, Michael is also serving as road manager for all of our touring efforts.

Having this great brother in Christ around to handle so many important aspects of The Wrecking’s operations, as well as to provide a steady stream of comic relief has done great things every aspect of the organization including my blood pressure.

Anyway I thought it only polite to formally introduce you to this new member of the team. I also wanted to let you all know that Michael is currently booking The Wrecking’s services for SNOW CAMPS and WINTER RETREATS in 2012. We had a great time last winter taking part in Snow Camps throughout the northeast, we thought… why not do it again?!

All that said, if you would like to book The Wrecking for any event please feel free to contact Michael anytime.

mjones@bloomartistagency.com 207-749-3951

Much love and peace in Christ,

Doug

Symphony of the Broken Heartyed Lyrics

Symphony of the Broken Hearted If you really want to know the truth We’re all so afraid No mater what we say We all need hope, we all need grace We all need love’s embrace It’s such a beautiful sound, a beautiful sound This melody changing us It’s such a beautiful sound, we cry from the ground The symphony of the broken hearted IF you really want to know my heart We’re all just the same No mater what we (think?) We all need hope, we all need grace We all need love’s embrace Chorus Each note and line Will always rise and fall And bind your heart with mine Chorus

Sept 5th Studio Update

Hey all, We are in the studio right now putting 4 new songs through their paces. We can’t let you hear anything just yet, but we will tell you that it is our intension to out-do anything we have ever done with these tracks. Working song titles right now are: “The Antidote”, “On Fire”, “Life in Reverse”, and “About to Fall”. Here is a pic of Karl and Dustin working some production magic… Actually it looks like Dustin is updating his Facebook status in this particular shot… but no matter! This stuff is sounding killer! Bass and keys tonight, guitars start tomorrow.

So listen… It’s no secret that Doug is a full fledged facebook addict!! Sooo why not use that to your advantage right about now?

It contains 6 brand new songs recently recorded at The Halo with Nashville based producer Dusitin Burnett. Included in this EP is “The Sound of the Resistance” which coincides with The Wrecking’s new music video due out this month as well.

Speaking of the new video, there are now 5 webisodes atwww.myspace.com/thewrecking showing the filming process and featuring some great footage of the band, the killer production team from the Center for Creative Media, as well as our dear friend and manager Traa from POD.
