Haven't been on this thing in a long time, but for anyone who reads these, here ya go!
We've been incredibly busy since my last post about our first show. Written some new songs, recorded some more (not professionally yet though, sad face). But we've got a ton of shows coming up, all of which are really important and big shows! We're making friends with so many great bands and supporting our local scene every night we can.
Let's see. Right now it's May 27th 7:32pm. We've got a huge show June 8th with Day of Reckoning that I cannot wait to play! Rusty Cooley was my idol for awhile and it will be great to share the stage with him and his band. Lots of talent scouts checking out Day of Reckoning, maybe they'll come a bit early and check us out too! ^.^
June 12th we've got a Battle of the Bands that we're pumped for. I know we're playing with The Audran Sequence (Saw those guys play a week or two ago, man. Great musicianship there, jeez. Love it!), Fallacy (Love those guys, great friends), Oceans of Slumber (Oh my god! Freaking professionals here. These guys are simply amazing. Check them out.), and a couple other bands that I haven't had the pleasure of seeing yet. The bands are judged by a Sumerian Records representative, and whoever wins will open for the 2013 Rock Star Mayhem Festival! Whaaaaaaaat! Fingers crossed we win this one. We're gonna bring everything we have and pour our hearts out!
June 29th we stroke up a deal with Warehouse Live to host a monthly "metal night." This month it will be Death Metal. We've got Us, Zone of Inhibition, Kleos, Desecrate the Faith, Demoniacal Genuflection (Same guys as Oceans of Slumber), and Dysmetria on this bill. This is going to be a night you don't want to miss. All 6 bands are absolutely incredible, all put on one hell of a show. If all goes well and Warehouse Live sees it as a success, Black Standard will host a metal night EVERY month that we can theme however we want! Power metal night, thrash metal night, cover band night, whatever we want! So let's make this a success!
October 26th we're playing on the Project Independent tour! It's broad casted to 100's of thousands of people world wide shot in HD. This is a huge show that goes on for 12 hours. We are honored to be playing in this, supporting our scene and starting some epic pits. Make sure you're there and keep up with the news!
We've got some more shows coming up too. June 22nd, July 17th, September 20th, but all the details aren't 100% worked out yet, so I don't want to say anything
Just make sure you follow us and keep up to date, and buy your presale tickets!!
Signing off. You cannot kill the metal... -Cooper
