Update for the end of 2013 beginning of 2014

We haven't been doing too much activity on this site the past few months because we have been hard at work writing for our upcoming album. We will be headed to Amped Recording Studios in Baltimore Maryland to work with Greg Parker on this new project. To give you all a vague idea of what our new record will be like, pay attention to the style of "The Green Light" and you'll see the direction we're going in. We are all looking forward to this opportunity and by February of 2014 we will hopefully have our new material up here for everyone to listen to. Rich and Keith are currently working on the album packaging and artwork too, so we hope this album will look as cool as we think it will sound. Hope you all have been well, we will keep you updated on more shows via the scheduler on our home page as well as status updates on fbook and twitter.

Information

Hey guys, just a small post to keep you all informed. Sean has made some compilations of footage from our time at Rogue Studios and will continue posting more funny vids on our youtube "champbandofficial". We will be adding more live performances to the channel as they are all on Keith's right now. We have started writing new material for the new record that will be recorded in late May or June (we haven't decided lol). But a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us thus far and helped us grow into what we are today. We still have a ways to go but you've all made this journey so awesome. We will continue to keep you updated with everything. We have a few shows in the works for the late spring/early summer due to our college schedules :/ but we will be playing a lot over the summer we can promise you that. Be on the lookout for more updates on here, our facebook, twitter, youtube, and instagram. Enjoy the rest of your day!

update

Hey guys, its Keith again. Just gonna let you all know what has been going on. We've all been super smacked with school and frankly we haven't been able to jam as a band since the semester started. BUT we have been writing new music individually and sending the lyrics/riffs back and forth to one another and we will have some more new material for our upcoming live shows towards the summer :) By late May we will be back in the studio and we will hopefully have our second EP out by July. We will be playing a bunch of shows throughout Long Island once the summer hits and we plan to branch out into Queens and NYC. Any opportunities that come our way we will capitalize on in hopes to get more exposure. We have been featured on the Radio J Show on CNEU radio, Bullspike Radio, and Rockxs radio the past month or so and we have even made it into the top 15 countdown segment on CNEU radio. We have gotten airtime on SBU's radio as well as Binghamton University. Be sure to check our facebook page for more information about our radio times :) Also, we'd like to thank you all for helping us hit 100 youtube subscribers and over 14 thousand views on our song "The Green Light". More videos will be posted and we hope to have a lyric video made soon. This summer we would like to film a music video for one of our songs...but which one could it bee??? :) Thank you all for the love and support this past year we promise to get you some new stuff really soon!

-Keith :)

song/show update

hey guys, its keith again. just wanted to tell you all that we have written a new song called "The Aftermath" and we will be playing it for the first time ever at our upcoming show on January 12th at the vibe lounge in rockville centre. It's going to be a really fun show, we have a great set lined up and we'll be playing with some cool bands like The Paramedic, Evelynn, Pandemic, and Call It Home. If you're in the area this saturday come down and hang with us!

We are currently working on more material so we will be headed back to the studio in May of 2013 to get our second CD recorded. We project that if we hit the studio around May then we will be releasing the next album by July. As of now this is our plan but it is subject to change depending on how our schedules mesh.

A big thank you to everybody that supports us, we really do appreciate you taking the time to show some love to the local L.I. music scene. We will be scheduling many more shows in the upcoming year so be sure to check out our page for updates.

We can't thank you enough for helping us hit #47 as of today on the L.I. rock charts, we promise to keep doing what we love for you guys.

Enjoy the rest of your day everyone!
