Hey Silver Bullet Nation! The world of music is no different than real life and sometimes things gotta change. For Silver Bullet, that means we are using guest guitarists in the rhythm slot for a while. It also means James will be handling an axe, occasionally. His talents in that area are undiscovered as he only sings onstage. We're writing new stuff, setting up our own studio and trying to get gigs in between. In the meantime, we have a show Friday, October 19 at the High Dive in Seattle that means a lot to us for several reasons. A) we've never been there B) we are being hosted by Seattle Wave Radio and the good folks at Seattle Music on facebook C) We just effin' love to play live to anyone Check our gig cal for the specifics. For all our fans who let us know ahead of time, we'll have a free shirt waiting for ya!
Jake here! It's been almost 3 weeks since we were in New York. We all had fun there, and some of us really miss it ( I know I do!), but its time for us to start focusing on the future! And the next step for us is to get some new material out there for you guys! We're currently working on writing some new tunes for what will be a new EP. We've finished two songs, and we're hoping to get at least three more finished before we start recording. Speaking of recording, another thing we're currently working on is getting our own recording studio built and functional. We have the space for it. We just need to get the area sound-proofed, and get the proper equipment. The ultimate DIY band...that's what we are. There are definitely a lot of big things coming for us in the not-too-distant future. I, along with the rest of the band, hope you guys are in for the wild-ride like we are. Hope to see you at our upcoming shows! -October 13th--Creative Underground Theater--Everett, WA -October 19th--The High Dive--Seattle WA
Rock on! \m/ Jake
Now that we're back from showing New York what 5 guys from Seattle are made of, we're setting our sights on The CUT in Everett, October 13th. Hope to see you all out there for one of the last shows of the year for us!
Most of you are probably wondering how New York went for us, so I'm gonna let you all know that it was absolutely AWESOME. Our first full day in NY consisted of us getting up early to be apart of The Real Radio Show, which was a lot of fun, and walking all over Times Square later on in the day. It was great to be in studio and see what goes into making a radio show like that one be able to air. I would tell you more about Times Square, but thanks to the Hard Rock Times Square bar, I don't remember a whole lot!
Thanks to everyone at The Real Radio Show, especially Henry and Frankie D, Vernon our shuttle driver who had endless information for us, Lindy's Taxi for showing up after our first set of taxis failed to and still getting us to the radio station on time, and everyone else that helped us out while we were on our trip! Stay tuned for more from other members throughout the week. -- Cody
Yesterday was surreal to say the least. Here's how it went: wake up jet lagged- no-show taxis- substitute taxis take us on a wild ride to get to WRCN on time- kickass fun on The Real Radio Show 103.9 Long Island- leave the station and see, on the street, the same taxi guy who gives us a ride to the train station- take the train to Penn Station and WALK ALL OVER MANHATTAN- train to Deer Park- stop at the liquor store- back to the hotel
Seems like we lived a month in one day. Thanks to everyone along the way yesterday, you even to the naked cowboy playing his guitar in Times Square.... more photos and videos to come!
Thanks to Karen, Josh, Travis, Trina, and the staff at The Break Room in Bremerton. We had an awesome time and enjoyed sharing the stage with Bad Habit and The Seattle Rock n Roll Project. The sound was great and the atmosphere fun. Check them out if you're in town at 1220 Sylvan Way. A great place to unwind and enjoy live music. We'll be posting videos of our show as time goes on. Next up for us is an early morning drive to SEATAC Wednesday to fly to JFK. By Thursday morning we'll be talking to half a million (?) folks in New York. Thanks again to Henry K and the staff at The REAL RADIO SHOW and especially Frankie Dee for having us. Everyone can hear us live at the show's website: www.therealradioshow.com We'll be on sometime after 4 a.m. Pacific time..... Yeah, right? Not exactly rock star hours! Thanks again for your support of live music and old school rock.
Bremerton New York Everett Party Party Party That's the plan. Are you with us?
Well the biggest effin weekend since the inception of Silver Bullet has passed now and it was a roller coaster of a ride. Maybe we shouldn't have decided to warm up the weekend with a local show first before playing two festivals in one day the VERY NEXT DAY> Whose idea was that anyway? Someone distinctly recalls Jake saying, "I'm up for Friday night." So Friday night, hot & heavy led us into early Saturday morning where Cody was already back to work at 7:30. Tyler, Jake and Colin load instruments and headed up to Seattle for Hempfest, while James picked up Cody at work, Chris Briggs and two other passengers. A quick stop at the music store to replace Cody's bass strap clip and off to Hempfest for car number two. If you've never been, here is a good idea of what it is like for a musician: CRAZY. That is all. The experience of a lifetime, that's for sure. Arrive at the stage at 1 p.m., play at 2 p.m., back to the cars and on the road by 4 p.m. Back to Silver Bullet Headquarters by 5 p.m. to pick up the gear for the Brewfest. Three cars to Olympia by 6:15 for the 7 p.m. gig. All set up, sound check by 6:30, eat pulled pork, and play at 6:45. Rock the SHIT out of the waterfront and free beer. What more could a working band want? We thank everyone who dug us, danced, assisted in the whirlwind. We had a blast and damn we're tired- in a GREAT way.
Oh and by the way, some of us went to see Motely Crue and Kiss the next afternoon. Life is pretty effin great right now! Thanks for hanging with us. Silver Bullet Nation ROCKS!
Yeah. Here it is. August. We are booked and looking for more. This is going to be a great month. You'll be able to see us in Fife, Tacoma, Seattle, Olympia, Yelm, and hopefully one other awesome place we've been trying to crack. When we find out we're in, we'll letyou know cuz we will need YOUR help to kick some ass up north. Jake turned 21 last month. All barriers are down. We can take the world by the nuggets now and slay the rock n roll world. You're all invited to come along for the fun.
hey, so we haven't gone to NY yet, but we re-booked our flights to go in September. It was a major hassle, but the show on which we were to play is going LIVE instead of recorded. We will get our name out to hundreds of thousands more people than the previous gig would have allowed. So we have quite a few exciting things going on and we're looking to get a spot in the Puget Sound Battle of the Bands at Muckleshoot Casino. Spread the word! Stay cool!
We have a great bunch of fans. No doubt. You're nuthin' without people who love the music. We have mad fans. Rehearsal today for NYC show. Really concentrating on that as the next big milestone. There are some shows coming up in August and also some cool gigs we on which we are waiting for a decision. You'll hear about them here for sure so keep checking back. Silver Bullet Nation rocks!
