Now that we are a bit more re-established, there are interesting things happening again to talk about. Let's start with our last show. We took the old Market Street stage at the new Market Street Pub & Cabaret. We had a fantastic time hanging out with our old tripper friends, and we made a whole bunch of new friends as well. The band made a bit of LSD history in that we played 2 full sets for the first time since our founding back in 2001. We had great hosts as well as great food and spirits. Just a bit of LSD history. A fun fact, if you will. Long Strange Days' very first club show was performed on this very same stage 14 years ago. Our next show will be at Market Street Pub & Cabaret on August 15th, so we look forward to seeing you there. We are also happy to announce that we have been invited to play at Boo15 in late October. Well Trippers, we'll check back in soon. Remember, original music is for original minds. Rock on Trippers!!!
So, a year later we submit a blog post. It took a while, but it was well worth the wait! LSD has added a few new pieces and are getting ready for our first show in quite a long time. First let us tell you about the new additions to the band. We would like to welcome 2 new members, keyboardist Zach Taylor and guitarist Manuel "Manny" Robles. They have made themselves at home in the LSD sound and It has been a pleasure to work with these guys over the last few months. We all look forward to rockin' out with our tripper family and maybe finding some new LSD friends. We had spent the last several years recording our debut album and we are excited to share with all of you. We are also excited to make our triumphant return to the live stage. On the 21st of February 2015 we will be live at "Parks Place", on NW 39th Ave in Gainesville Fl. We hope to see many of you there. Until then, Rock on Trippers!!!!!!
After all this time, the wheels are finally starting to gain momentum on the mother ship! Long Strange Day has been working vigorously over the last half a year plus, since last we posted a blog entry to get our recording done as well as replacing that empty place in our hearts, otherwise known as our keyboardist Sam. We are happy to report that there has been progress and developments on both fronts! Let's begin with the album. If you recall, we were just about done with the tracking back when we last reported to you. The tracking is now long behind us and we've been in the mixing stage. That has been going slower than expected due to our perfectionist engineer never being happy with anything, but we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Of the 13 tracks going on the album, about a quarter of them are ready for mastering.
Now on to the question of replacing Sam.... It has been a long wait, and admittedly we were at the point of throwing in the towel. We talked to many guitarists to no avail. Any available keyboardists in this area were already committed to a project or two or three. But we can tell you that as of late we have found a new creative spring and music has been flowing throughout the LSD compound again!
OK Trippers, We'll try harder to keep this Blog updated but until next time, stay safe and happy, and remember to share your LSD with all of your friends and family. oh yeah..... Rock on Trippers!
Well it has been a while since Our very first blog entry. Sorry 'bout that! Anyway, Allot has been happening over the last few months. We said goodbye to our friend and keyboardist, Sam Kowalczyk. He went and joined the Navy, but we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
We have been talking to keyboardists and guitarists over the last half a year or so and we feel like we are getting close to, not only filling the void left by Sam but also adding the second guitar that we've been looking for for quite some time. We are looking at a real short list at this point.
We have been working hard at getting the tracking stage of our new album behind us. We are literally days away from finishing up the last of the tracks. The next step will be to get it all mixed and sent off for mastering. Hopefully that won't take to long.
Well Trippers, That about raps up our latest entry into the LSD blog. Stay safe and happy and remember to share your LSD with all of your friends and family and till next time.....
Rock on Trippers!
Greetings Trippers! This is the first of hopefully many blog entries to come from LSD central. We unfortunately had not continued the original LSD Blog which was found on MySpace. We had to let our MySpace page go after the mass exodus that our fans made to Facebook. We just want to welcome our friends and fans out there in Tripper Nation, to the new LSD blog.
So let's get caught up with the latest LSD happenings.
We have been working hard over the last 2 years to get our first full length album out to our fans. It has been a long slow road but we are finally nearing the end. We plan on celebrating with a CD release party and we hope to see all of Tripper Nation there. We will release the date and location as soon as we have it set up. There will be merchandise (including the new album), good music and plenty of give-a-ways.
Well Trippers, That about raps up our first entry into the new LSD blog. Stay safe and happy and remember to share your LSD with all of your friends and family.
Rock on Trippers!
