So, last night was super fun.!! Great to see all of our friends and meet some new fans. Now it's off to Eastern Washington for a couple of shows, get out there and try to sell some of these new Cd's!! Thanks to Modern Relics and Palatine Ave for helping us make this night a success!! We REALLY appreciate the support all our friends/fans have given us over the years. This is our 3rd record and yet it feels like just the beginning.

Their songs are unpretentious and heartfelt; sweeping, lush and haunting all in the same breath and all with an insistent beat and focused energy that let you know this is still a rock and roll band.” Discography: 2009 - “Hard Times” 2012 - “The Ghost You Left Behind” 2015 - “Reruns on a Rainy Day” Press Contact: email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org Website: www.lostdogma.com www.reverbnation.com/lostdogma Record Label: www.Knickknackrecords.com
So, here's the story...Sunny Divide is a little roadside gas station with a house, ranch hand cabins and an old one room schoolhouse along Highway US-14 by Devils Tower Wyoming. Located on my Aunts land the buildings are currently vacant. As a young boy I used to play around the old barns and buildings, I really don't know where the story comes from other than my overactive imagination. But the story I heard (imagined) was that it was once owned by an older couple who's demise was a murder/suicide. Apparently the husband killed his wife then turned the gun on himself. Now, I was a young kid and my older cousins would have camp outs where we would tell ghost stories and maybe this was one of the tales they crafted to scare me. (it didn't work) I wrote this song around that fairy tale. "The Zim" filmed the live footage in Snohomish Washington at The Hawthorne. I shot footage of an abandoned house in my neighborhood. The old man with the gun is my father-in-law. We shot this because the song is licensed to the Pro Bull Riders Assoc. for a a video game and they asked for a video. Since we didn't have one we figured it was about time. Here are the results. Enjoy. http://youtu.be/CJmZOmCbnW4?list=UUtnhvNV-xgDdvvfvMME0X4A
I know what you're thinking, yeah...so what, every band drinks PBR...and I would have to agree. But this is different, our song Sunny Divide has been chosen by the Professional Bull Riders Assoc. for their "Raging Bulls" video game!!! Download it FREE here: http://at.PBR.com/GXz7.
As I have been writing the music for this next Lost Dogma record I have been reflecting on past experiences all the while looking at the future and where this might go. I know you hear it all the time "go for broke" "give it all you got" and other sports like catch phrases, but this time, more than any other at least for me those ring more and more true. I really am faced with the fact that THIS is my calling card and I have no other choice but to be doing what I do at THE highest level I can. To write songs that will stand next to the great ones and go toe-to-toe with the classics and yet remain myself. I realize this is a tall order, but as the days get shorter my focus becomes clearer. This is who I am, and I have no choice. So yeah, I'm "going for broke"
Ok, I've been sitting on this for awhile now and I can FINALLY announce that our song "Sunny Divide" will be included on the "PBR Raging Bulls" video game, soon to be released to the public. Lost Dogma will be in there with KISS, Uncle Kracker, Guns N Roses, Bon Jovi, Jason Aldean, Ted Nugent, and many others. We are very excited about this opportunity and will keep you posted when the game is officially released.
I just realized that I haven't updated my blog here in awhile. This has been a rebuilding year for Lost Dogma with all new band members, we've been working hard playing as many shows as we can and rehearsing 2 times per week. I think the new song count is somewhere around 16 or 17. I just licensed a couple songs to a pro-rodeo video game, I'll keep you posted on when it becomes available to the public. So, on September 13th we are having the annual "Virgo Party Show" This year it will be at Darrells Tavern. This will be our last show until December (unless something cool comes up) so you don't want to miss this one for sure!!! We are also sporting some new t-shirts for merch. Pick one up at the show or if you want to order one thru the mail contact Knick Knack Records Thanks again for your continued support on this big adventure.
