Today is Saturday February 16, 2013. After 7 months apart, the original members of 49 Til Midnight met at Oasis Studios in Tempe, AZ with their new keyboardist, April Anne. The bulk of the session consisted of freestyle improv, though some of the songs from 'Wheels of Ezekiel' were touched on. The future looks promising, By applying a new sound, dynamic and vision to the sessions, the framework is being set for the bands return.
Man I hate blogging. I dont mind blog in general. I like reading blogs. Just freakin hate maintaining a blog.
We're wrapping up 2011 with 2 big shows: the release of our record 'Wheels of Ezekiel' @ Joe's Grotto on November 11 and a spot on the Tempe tour stop for 'Me Talk Pretty' and 'Hell or Highwater' at the Clubhouse in Tempe on December 5th. Our bassist, Brevvy Solomon, will temporarily be replaced by Jesse Simpson of 'In Memory Of' on bass for the December 5th show and possibly other shows in the month of December. He will return after the Dec 5 show or in January. We look forward to going out with a bang in 2011. See you all 1 week from today at our record release show! xoxo cheers salud
So we kicked off our summer with an amazing show w/ SHE WANTS REVENGE & NICO VEGA @ The Clubhouse Music Venue in Tempe, AZ tonight. Our summer schedule will be short, as we are deep in recording our debut album tentavively called 'Judah' with producer Max Ontiveros @ Studio 747 in Tempe. The album will be recorded mostly analog in a live setting. We are applying our previous material as well as new material to a classic rock/vinyl record concept. The goal is to create modern rock songs that embrace a classic rock sound. If all falls into place, the album wil be released on 11/11/11 on vinyl, CD and digitally online. You can preview a demo version of one of the new songs, 'Darling' on this page. Next AZ show is July 16 @ Sundance's in Prescott. See you there!
Well. Eric is back in the band. What?! He wasn't in the band? Well kinda. . . but that doesn't matter. What matters is this: we are recording and album to be released 11/11/11 AND we are playing w SHE WANTS REVENGE this summer. Next show is 6/16 @ The Clubhouse in Tempe. Oh! And Eric cut his hair. And Fenyx had a party today but I couldnt attend. And Brevvy has the darndest stories. Whatever. Cheers.
