Word up yall! So, we got to listen to all of the tracks, that will be on Vital Hiatus, just the other day and they sounded awesome! Just a little bit of tweaking and we should be done very very soon. Now we just have to plan a kick ass release party, that I'm sure if you're reading this you'll be attending it. Either way it's gonna be awesome.
Also, we played an amazing show at Jitters in Whitewater. Thanks again to all of the crew for coming out there and rocking balls (Drunk). We gotta send out props to every one too for giving us an encore! Especially to Joe Carrig for jumping up on stage and going crazy... It was awesome. We also got several new faces that showed up too which is always cool, and we actually got some tips so an extra special thank you to all that donated!
We're actually probably going to play Jitters again on April 8th for a special event so stay tuned for that. And we're still stoked about going to play the Annex april 23rd for Jon Kussow's Birthday Roast. It's all ages, and there'll be a free keg too, so definitely come out to that one!
Oh yeah, and a happy belated 311 Day to you all! Here's the link for the Video clip that I did in tribute to 311 - Excerpt of "Life's not a Race"
We also just finished a new song that will be on our next CD. I just finished the Lyrics a few days ago, but we've been playing the song as an instrumental for awhile now so were ready to go on it (we actually played it live at the Jitters show). The song is tiled "Illusions".
Getting geared up for the spring, Stay tuned and keep in touch for a lot of big new things from us! Peace, Joe (Funk Zombie)
Hey, so we haven't done a post in a looonnnngg time. But that doesn't mean we haven't been up to anything, just that we've been lazy and slacking in the blogging realm!
So, we've had 3 kick ass shows so far in the new year. Happy New Years by the way, a little late, actually a lot late, oh well deal with it. Anyways, our first was at the Cuda Cafe to help them get their new arrangement up and running. We played with Meaning in Tragedy again, and got hooked up with a local favorite of ours Lot 74. I guess they definitely dug us, and so did the crowd. We played an amazing show and got everyone movin' around, definitely felt great!!
The next two shows were up in Michigan at Marquette and Munising for our first road trip and shows out of state! Both shows went incredibly well and the locals up there loved us and want us back. We definitely had a great time and want to go back very soon. We also started a 'Bat in your Face' tradition of the "Zombie Moshpit" and will continue to grow it at every show.
Also, we did a slideshow picture montage of our past year as Wall of Funk to an acoustic rendition of 'Imagine' by John Lennon.

Coming up soon we hope to do another show at Jitters in Whitewater, as well as a CD Benefit show at the Cuda Cafe. Also, we are definitely looking forward to playing for Jon Kussow's Birthday Roast at the Annex on Regent St. in Madison on April 23. That's gonna be a blast!!
We also have Exclusive downloads for new fans at: www.sonicbids.com/walloffunk
Stay tuned for the drop of another single off of Vital Hiatus before it's Summer release!!
Peace out, Joe (Funk Zombie)

What up everyone! Notice the pic, it's from our recent photo shoot and is one of 5 solid keepers!
So this last week we had a couple of solid practices and confirmed our show date at Club Inferno. We're also making some more headway and progress with our promotion and completion of our new CD Vital Hiatus, unfortunately still no solid date for it's release.
The Inferno Gig will be on December 10th, a thursday, coming up next week. We need a big crowd so we'll be doing a lot of promotion to get all of our Madison peeps out. We're also gonna try a few new cool ideas during the show, including free stuff for many attendees. Expect a killer show!
We still will have our first single off of Vital Hiatus coming out next weekend for sure, the song will be Like Cocaine! We seriously can't wait to get everyone a taste of what's coming!
I decided to do an acoustic version of Void for a Youtube post this week, its one of our first songs ever written. Unfortunately the end of the song got cut off by my 3 min. maximum recording, but it was just like 5 seconds so I kept it. I apologize if this upsets anyone, but it pissed me off too, however I felt good about the performance.

As the year comes to an end, we have a lot of new and exciting things happening for us, stay tuned to see what we've been working very hard at!

Until next time, Keep Rockin' and Peace out! Joe (Funk.Zombie)
Word up! Man, we are getting super close with Vital Hiatus. We'll definitely have a single out by the end of this month! Still pretty uncertain as to a definite release date, but we guarantee only our finest quality of work!
The firing party we played at for the art tour '09 went really well and we made a bit of cash too! we also found this super awesome program called Indy Band Manager which will hopefully help us really stay on track and on top of everything! We're definitely working on getting back on top of everything. It's easy to slack towards the end of the year, but we have to make our last big push for it. It's just hard when all we want is a month long vacation of doing nothing, but hey who doesn't?
So, coming up we have a gig at the Inferno in the works as well as that single that we mentioned. We'll also have our new pics and graphics out by the end of the month too. For now, check out Lennon playing some riffage from the song Punch off of our EP Hot Insight!

As always, keep rockin', I know we will! Peace out! (Joe - Funk Zombie)
So, we have some new stuff going on finally! We have an actual website set up so you should check it out! We have music and info, and anything else you would want to know or enjoy.
We're still rollin' on the mixing of Vital Hiatus, and its going very well so far, now all we have to worry about is time and money!
We had a killer show at Jitters in Whitewater this weekend and got to see a bunch of old friends we haven't seen in a while, and they got to check us out for the first time, their response was definitely good!
Next weekend we're gonna put in about 2 solid days of work in on the CD and play a show for a firing party. And we don't have to go anywhere cause its at our practice space. So I guess things are going alright right now, other than the most ridiculous shit that could happen to me happing all in one month, I won't get into it but its just ridiculous!
Well, I'm trying to get back on top of everything, heres to hard work! Peace out and Keep Rockin'! (Joe - Funk Zombie)
