BIG NEWS in the house of (Damn) This Desert Air. We'd like to welcome Mike Wolff to the band, taking axe position originally held by John Kohler, who gracefully bowed out of the group for personal reasons. Mike, a veteran in more than one sense of the word—fits like a glove both personally and musically. Mike's had a good amount of road wear and has worked with (teched and tour managed) bands such as Quicksand, Civ, Orange 9mm & Handsome, aside from playing razor sharp guitar in bands his entire life. We're excited for a new chapter to begin with (D)TDA and have plans for the Fall taking shape with him on board. More shows, more songs and the release of our 2nd EP. Speaking of the 2nd EP--You'll still hear John's guitar magic throughout, as tracking was concluded a few months back & we've been sitting on rough mixes engineered *within* by our own Shawn Reams—who did a stellar job we might add. The songs on it will be "Before Sunrise," "Ghost I Own," "Trembles" and "Your Atlantis" and are in the hands of Dan Coutant of New York's The Sun Room Studios, currently commissioned for the mix. Additionally, we've confirmed James Sheehan, a fine artist from NY State, who will be working on the EP cover art, as plans are being discussed for it's release. More news to come soon. hope to see you at one of the upcoming shows!!!
We're on the lookout for a new 2nd guitarist. John K has come to a crossroads. No drama, all love -- we hate to see him go. We're still keeping up our booked shows with John, so you can still catch him live with us for now--but for the future--here's what we're looking for: - - - (D)TDA's looking for a solid player with good dynamics, control & tasteful gear. (Gear is important.) A good breadth of effects pedals with a heavy riff foundation is desired/required. Creativity/songwriting welcomed.
