Wednesday, December 19, 2012 Jeez, last entry was from April and now we're already approaching the new year. We've been delinquent from our blog, but we assure you not delinquent in activity. Honestly, a stupid (good) amount of stuff has happened since our last post. First: We released 'Hoped Destinations' on June 8, 2012. All couldn't be done w/o New Fidelity Productions (Chris Madine), Far-I-Rome Productions, Northside Tavern, the Founding Fathers, Horsecop and West Ghost. It was a pretty good over-all experience. We experienced some technical difficulties during our set, which was a major bummer, but in the end we came away from the experience w/ an album we're really proud of that sounds really great. Check it out here: http://dinothunder.bandcamp.com/
Second: We have a new member! Mr. Alessandro Corona now plays drums for us. As you can imagine, musically and creatively this has really opened up some doors for us. Now, both Rob and I are on guitar primarily, which really fills out the sound. It's been really inspiring, so we wasted no time to start writing and recording again. I bought a house with my girlfriend over the summer, so the band's home-recording experience has been much more comfortable with more room to spread out. The new stuff is sounding really good and definitely pretty different. Here's a scratch version one our early recordings for the new album. Rob's on vocals; it's called 'Worrywart' https://soundcloud.com/dinosaurs-and-thunder/worrywart
Third: We have shows coming up!: -Feb. 8th w/ Prize the Doubt (columbus), Fourth Wife (ex-Weakness) and probably 1 more...@Rake's End yadda yadda
We're planning on also trying to record a live album @ Tonehouse Music in Northside probably in March so we'll keep ya posted about that. We hope to have an entire self-recorded album and a professionally recorded 7" done within the upcoming months in the new year. Should be a good year for us, hitting the ground running. We've also been making some new friends 'round the Nati and we're getting good vibes of things to come. Lots of support for creativity and many like-minded musicians coming out of the woodwork. Keep on eye on Cincinnati. Things might be happening. Speaking of new music, Homemade Drugs and Old City both have new recordings out on bandcamp so check em out! Really good local stuff. If you kind of like us, you'll really like them.
Until next time.
