As many of you know we had an amazing start to the year followed by some unfortunate news that put a temporary fork in the road for us. After a two tours right at the beginning of the year we came back to our vocalists wife suffering from a sudden medical emergency. March 26th Raleigh played his last show with Beauty Killed the Beast. It was a sad night for many but also amazing to see all the support we had in sending him with a proper goodbye.
We have included a video of our final show and a timeline of our updates thusfar on our break.
Raleigh's Last Show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dw1_DN-baI&feature=youtu.be&noredirect=1
March 16th We deliver this message with heavy hearts. Our vocalist's(Raleigh) wife has recently had an incident that requires her to need extra help and have medical supervision so after March he will be parting ways with us to care for her. We will still be carrying through with our hometown show March 26th at The Chesterfield. This will be Raleigh's last show with BKTB. We'd love to see you there to give him a big sendoff. It's going to be an emotional show and your last chance to catch us live for a while so let's make it a one for the books. In return, we also have to withdraw from our shows currently booked in April but we have every intention of being back full force as soon as possible. We've hit this year hard out the gate and want to continue this. We will be utilizing this downtime to continue writing for a new album and finding the best possible replacement we can. Information on auditions will be coming soon. Raleigh has become a huge part of our lives and will remain one of our brothers forever. We truly hope their situation betters and hope nothing but the best for their future. We've got some big shoes to fill. We love you and you will be missed.
Raleigh's official statement: "My wife is dealing with a medical condition that requires my full attention and support. We are staying positive in this time and hoping for the best. It saddens me to be leaving the band as they have become like a second family to us. We wish them the best of luck with their endeavors."
Please send your thoughts and prayers to them in this time of need. Thank you for understanding. We promise we'll be back soon and coming at you harder than ever before.
March 31st Better late than never but thank you to everyone who came out to Raleigh's last show and special thanks to our friends in Angola Music for donating their cut to his wife's medical expenses. We had a great turn out, some crazy pits, our guitarist took a trip crowd surfing through the crowd, and we came very close to tears. Thank you all once again. So far auditions are looking very promising. We can't wait to be back.
April 6th We have been blown away by the amount of help and interest we've had from our fans to get us up on our feet again. We have had over 30 submissions for people interested in auditioning for vocals in Beauty. We have begun narrowing some of these down and have some promising looking applicants right now. If your interested there is still time. We have two dates set aside for in person auditions this month and look forward to meeting you all.
April 11th We are practicing, writing, and working hard with new potential vocalists. We promise not to leave you hanging for long. We are planning some pretty cool stuff yet for this summer. We have an upcoming tour announcement, a sweet benefit show, a festival, and a show with a big-timer in a venue we have yet to step on stage at. Thank you all for standing beside us through thick and thin. We'll be back before you know it.
We started the New Year off hard right off the bat with our New Years Resolution Tour and it was amazing. All the bands poured their hearts out on stage. Thank you to everyone that has made tour possible. We were extremely lucky to be homed and fed by multiple friends and families. We played with some amazing musicians and saw some beautiful cities. We saw old friends and made new ones. We traveled through 8 states and over 3,000 miles. We participated in the first round of The Road To Vegas at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Sioux City. Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City brought us in like family. We lit up that stage like nobody's business. There were a couple hundred people there and We got second place in the battle only losing by 1 point to our brothers in SAUL but it was an extremely uplifting experience. Today we are proud to finally announced publicly an official sponsorship with Coldcock Whiskey.Never heard of it? This is a truely unique & excellent whiskey. A sweet flavor, minimal burn, and a remarkably smooth finish. This is a rockstar's whiskey! Check them out, you will not be disappointed! They give us a great set of tools and networking opportunities we are stoked about.
We succeeded in hitting 2016 Hard right out of the gate and were not slowing down.
Here is a list of upcoming shows: 2/11 Lookout Lounge Omaha NE w/ Conveyer 2/18 Lookout Lounge Omaha, NE w/ Erra 2/19 TBA - Joplin, MO 2/20 The Modern Craftsman - Springfield, MO 2/21 TBA - Davenport, IA 3/26 The Chesterfield - Sioux City, IA 4/1 All Star Rock Bar - Kansas City, MO

Who has seen our new music video for "It Got Stuck" yet?
Yesterday our new music video went live on youtube. We've had so much positive feedback so far. Our friends and family are always so supportive. It's always the greatest feeling to watch our fans enjoy the fruits of our labor. We'd love to hear what your thoughts are on it. To watch follow the link below.
Beauty Killed the Beast
The time has come. Production of our music video has been completed and it will be released tomorrow. We are more than happy with the work Randy Edwards had done for us and can't wait to share it with the world.
The lyrics to " It Got Stuck" refer to a a lack of creativity in today's music and an overwhelming sense of complacency that seems to contribute to it. We wrote a storyboard to match this theme focusing on a struggling artist that later finds his motivation through music.
We'd like to thank everyone involved in the process of making this video happen. Our actors, videographer, owners of our shoot locations, ect.
We'd love for you to come check it out and let us know what you think about it.
As always, Thank you for your continued support. You make this possible for us.
Beauty Killed the Beast
We got our hands on the final cut of our music video today and we've got to give props to our brother Randy Edwards for making our story line come to life.

Details on the release coming soon!
That being said we have a few more surprises up our sleeves that are also being announced soon. One coming in December that is quite possibly our biggest accomplishment to date.

Thank you all for your continued support!
We have officially finalized our tour dates for this July. Thank you to everyone who has helped us along the way. We approached our good friends in One of these days Alice a couple months ago about joining us for a tour we were DIY booking for ourselves this summer. We put our heads together trying to think of a tour name. This is to be both bands first tour and we are expanding to new cities we've never played in before. So we found it appropriate to settle on "The Who the Fuck Are These Guys Tour." We can't wait to see all the familiar faces and we are just as excited to meet new ones along the way. Lastly, as you may have heard, One of These Days Alice will be moving to Boise, Idaho to write their next album and to pursue their careers of music and the band. They have been by our sides since the start. They are our brothers in this music scene and this July they are also our tour buddies. July 18th, the last night of our tour, will be the last show they'll play around here for quite a while. Come out and send them on their farewell with a great note. Much love guys, We're going to miss the shit outta you crazy fuckers. Full list of events below, RSVP to the event pages below and help us kill this fucking tour! Here we come! #whothefuckaretheseguystour
