Show Review @ The Haven 3/26/10

By Stephen Bray

Our Future Leaders opened the show and proceeded to melt faces. Having their regular drummer definitely made a difference. They started their set with good driving power rock and the energy was filling the room. I could see the people stop texting and playing pool to move toward the stage. Always a good sign. The energy continued to build and transferred from the band to the crowd and back. The music was original and tight. Then I got to see some magic I have not seen in a long time. The band moved into their punk songs and the energy went through the roof. The crowd began dancing frenetically to the point of a mosh pit and everyone was having a great time. It was truly a treat reminding me of a time gone by when rock music was pure energy and fun. When it took your soul and just wrung it out. Leaving you exhausted and wanting more. I was really impressed by the talent of the leader (Brian Strean). His range went from mellow to hard to punk rock with consistency. The talent of this band is something to watch. Then came the real treat. It’s always a pleasure to attend a show when the opening act blows away the main act. And this is exactly what happened. When Hannen came on, the front man tried to encourage the crowd to come to the stage and party as they did before but, he had very little present. As they started you could to tell the music was bland and mainstream. It did not work after the previous show. If you like mainstream however, this could be a band you could get into. After listening to the free cd, I found it smooth and pleasant but that is really not my forte. There is too much of that out there already. I’m happy that there are bands going in the energy direction like Our Future Leaders. It’s about time to get back to good powerful rock that gets your heart pounding and your blood pumping. I believe this band will go places if they keep the pace.

Finishing the single

Monday we should be able to finish recording the single for the upcoming EP! Once we finish it will be heading to the studio to be mixed and mastered, which should be done before the end of April. As soon as its done it will be made available download to everyone. I'm excited to finish it so I can send it out to all the radio stations for some airplay. It's getting more exciting everyday, and I can't wait to release the EP to all our fans. Also, we're currently working on some designs for t-shirts and hoodies which should be done in a few weeks as well. If you think you have a cool design...send it to us and we just might put it up in the Merch Store! Subscribe to our blog to keep up to date. Thanks guys!

Bison Disc Sucks

If you're looking for CD Duplication, DO NOT go to Bison Disc..they're local here in Orlando. I purchased 100 discs from them and when I received them the image was pixelated and had a ring around each item of text...it looks very unprofessional..the ones I make at home look better than theirs. After speaking with them to get it fixed, they insisted they would not replace them. Save yourself the trouble..go with some professionals.
