El Corazon update and more...
What's up SB Nation!
This is Cody, finally getting a chance to update you on all things new in our world! In case you haven't heard yet, Steven Adler had to cancel his tour after he checked back into rehab. Our El Corazon show is still happening though! Dizzy Reed of Guns N Roses has agreed to play the dates instead and we will be one of the opening acts. Tickets are only $15 bucks, so hit us up if you want to buy them!
This past weekend, we had the privilege of playing two amazing parties this past weekend, one in Eatonville and the other in Tumwater. The party in Eatonville was a joint birthday party for Donny and Jordon, a father and son tandem that just so happen to really love our music. Donny was more than accommodating, making sure that we had everything we needed for the actual gig and then making sure we ate and had a good time before we had to leave. Those jalepeno poppers were so awesome, but damn were they spicy! Thanks for having us out Donny, can't wait for next year!
Our second gig of the day had to be the most unique venue we have ever played at. Our good friend Mike invited us out to his 60th birthday party at the Olympic Flight Museum. I think I can speak for the entire band when I say that it was more than we expected it to be. The crowd was even more surprised as we took the stage and were loving everything we played from our originals to our covers of ZZ Top, Tom Petty, and ACDC. The birthday boy begged us to play more after we had finished our set, so after convincing the sound crew to turn everything back on we ended the night with "Animal" by WASP. Mike, thanks again for booking us to play your party, it was an absolute blast. Stay tuned for more updates from myself and the rest of the band about new gigs and new music!
Hot & Heavy May
Yup. We played Uncle Sam's and as usual, we had a damn fine time. Our pals Sea of Misinformation came over from Bremerton to play some new stuff and we met Party Sound Ensemble, a handful of wowie talented musicians/soldiers who can cover anything you can think of. they rock the house and we thank them for starting the night off with a bang.
We have two private parties on Saturday and then Jake heads of to OK to visit his family. He better hope they recognize him without all his rock n roll hair!
It's going to be a hot summer in the northwest, so wherever you are, roll down those windows and crank up the tunes. Hopefullly, you'll throw in a few of ours while making your road trip play list. Rock On! James, Jake, Cody, Colin

This is a new blog entry.
We don't want you to think we have neglected our fans. We have a new song in the can and more coming. James is playing the guitar and Colin broke his drum. Rock on! Silver Bullet ^++^
OH THE HUMANITY!
Jake here! Went into Joe's Studios to start the recording on our new, yet-to-be-titled single. Mixmasta Jared Dines of Joe's Studios is excited to have us back because he's been doing some renovations in his studio, and is looking forward to testing them out. Quick side note. If you're in a band, or are a solo artist, and are looking for a very chill environment to record your music, check out Joe's Studios (Jared Dines Recording Studio) on facebook. He's affordable, professional, and a cool dude. He'll give you everything you need to get your music recorded, polished, and ready for the masses.
Anyways. Back to the new music. This new song will blow you away. It'll infect your ears and it won't ever leave. It's that catchy. That rockin'. And we're excited to get it out there.
So be on the lookout. You'll be hearing a lot from us in the very near future...
New things are coming!
Cody here to give you some great news from the Silver Bullet camp. With 2012 being an absolutely fantastic year for us, we decided that we needed to make 2013 better. We're working on getting some new pictures and logo to go with our recent line up change, along with looking for gigs in different cities and clubs around Washington. But the information you're all wanting of course, is that Silver Bullet will finally be heading back into the studio! For the past couple months,we've been putting the work in on a handful of new songs and we're ready to record them so we can share them with you all. Stay tuned for some studio updates from us, as well as some new gigs for us coming up as well!
What's up for 2013?
Hey SB Nation! You can get a free download of Light 'Em Up during the Hard Rock Calling Contest coming up in a few weeks. Some of you already own it, but your download is a vote for us. Last year you sent us into the top 12 for a fantastic experience at Hard Rock in Seattle. We're asking you to help us do it again. More details soon. Also, we have some new stuff coming and some more covers for parties and shows. The best way to hear us is to hire us. The second best way to hear us is come see our show, but if you can't do those two things, plug in that cd or call us up on any of the online channels. And if you have any questions or want to talk to any of us, just send along a message. We;ll get back to ya. Rock on!
On Slowing Down
We wanted to slow down with gigs the last couple months, but things are working so well, we've not been able spend as much time with the new stuff as we wanted to spend. The adventure of playing with and for Seattle Wave Radio's Jammin' Challenge '12 was amazing. Props first to Jake Nannery and the Wooden Nickel Band for an awesome performance and for beating us in the final round. A genuinely great guy with a full spectrum of talent, Jake Nannery is a quality guy. To Sea of Misinformation, we have a gig or two in mind to which we want to invite you, so Ryan, we'll be calling. To Andrea Desmond, a fireball of talent and a loyal fan base. That's what it takes to make it and you're way ahead of us. It was an honor to play with all these acts. Treehouse received a van full of toys from these bands' fans, so a lot of little kids with have a smile Christmas morning. Amy at the Hard Rock, and her staff, as usual, were great hosts and we all had a blast. Thanks to the judges who came out and encouraged us all. It was an honor just to be there, hear your critiques and be on that stage. Any time on stage is great for us. So we're playing close to home Dec. 14 at Uncle Sam's on Pacific in Tacoma/Spanaway. Then up to Kent Dec. 21 and back in Yelm Dec. 22. Merry Christmas everyone. Keep Rockin'

Kickin' it for Christmas and Kids
Hey, if you only go to one Christmas party this year, why not do something nice for a kid AND have a good time? We're playing the Third Annual Tweet for Treehouse show Nov. 29 at Hard Rock Seattle.
