Those of you that have seen any of our live shows since the release of WTTD have noticed that almost half (if not more) of our set is made up of songs that aren't on our album. For our out of market fans, you don't even have a clue we have new shit. This is frustrating for all parties involved, so we're putting an end to that now!
We've started the first stages of self recording our next demo, which will have five songs, including two songs no one has ever heard.
There are going to be slight drawbacks, like a little set back in quality and the use of a drum machine since we don't have a full drummer. However, we'll be giving the demo away for free, as well as let you download all the songs! We're not paying anything for this, so why should you?
I am beyond stoked to get this out, and believe me, we wouldn't put out anything subpar or half ass. The new shit blows WTTD to bits, in true metal fashion. Stay tuned for updates from our "studio" at Casa de Cryptic, pictures, stories and even audio clips as they unfold!
We'll see you fuckers soon! -Garcia
What up, fuckers!
If you haven't seen by now, we've got a killer new video on the page that is just dying to be seen. We're extremely proud of how it came out, and want to thank our friends Ben and Dillon for getting it together, as well as everyone that was involved!
A lot of shit has been happening our way the past week. Shows are starting to be set up for the summer. So far, we're hitting Nashville and West Virginia, with hopefully a stop in the Mid-Atlantic region as well. If you have any places you want us to play, drop us a line or shout to us a venue we can check out.
Also in the works is a small, 4 or 5 song mini album we are going to record to get you guys some new tunes. (Didn't we JUST release a fucking album?) Those of you faithful CR fans (we have those?) have heard a few of the songs we play that aren't on WTTD, but there are still more. And for you unfortunate bastards that are out of our playing circle, you haven't even heard those!
Our goal is to get that out within the next couple of months because these couple of songs will make Towers seem like a smoldering pile of caca.
We'll let you know what unfolds, and what you can expect as the summer gets closer. Until then, cheers!
