First Blood: Part 1

Remember that first installment of Rambo when Stalone dominated like 20 guys by himself? That's kind of how I feel Midnight Raid just handled things our first time in the studio as a band. No mercy! Definitely, one of the best experience I have ever had recording. It was a blast! Or recording engineer, Guerin Good, is an amazing talent and totally made us feel at home in the studio. As a result, I felt the band was able to create something fresh and organic. Putting in the sweat and hard work while drinking cheap beer and cracking jokes the entire time. We can't wait for you, our listeners, to hear the funky bass lines, face-melting guitar solos and lip-smacking drum fills we just laid down. This last weekend we finished all the major stuff, now we're going to throw down some minor things before sending our tracks to Washington D.C. to be mixed by East Coast reggae veteran D.J. from the band Lucky Dub. Midnight Raid's first EP is almost upon us. And it's about time too... Midnight Raid has been a complete band for just two months and in that time we've really created some really great music and played some awesome shows. Once our EP has dropped more doors will open, but we're really just enjoying our time together as musicians creating something completely unique. We are currently in the process of planning a West Coast Tour this summer. If you have any suggestions, please drop us a line. Right now our plan is to hit: Humboldt County, Sacramento, Davis, Santa Cruz, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and San Diego. Of course, that is on top of all the Bay Area (Oakland, San Francisco, etc...) shows we'll be doing. 2012 is going to be a great year. Please listen to our music, come by our shows and say what's up, but most importantly support our cause. Midnight Raid is committed to social activism and political outreach. Remember, "Be the change you want to see in the world." The future is bright as long as you are looking towards the light. One Love! BGC
