Success!

Well, the CD release show for the Sore EP was a success, I would think. I met a ton of new people, yus. I brought a small sum of 7 others with me to join the fun. The bands there were great. Last Action Heroes let us all use their set, and things went off with a smash. We heard songs about certain things that most people know about. *giggles* but hey, that's how it goes. But I was happy, I finally had the chance to headbang and mosh like I never have before because Formaldehyde was amazing. I let Courtney take pictures. She didn't do a half bad job. They're being uploaded at this moment that I'm typing this, but you can find them here!. The EPs were finished at my house the day before, and hell I sold 3 myself. They're only $5. And if you haven't bought one yet, you definately should. It sounds extremely great. And I'm not joking. But enjoy the pics, and don't forget to pick up your copy!

Well, last night was definately great. We had the first practice with Zam, the Zombie Man as the bassist. And for it being his first time picking one up basically, he played like a maniac. Things are looking good for the Battle Of The Bands on March 1st. Although Brian can't drum until then. I think we'll do pretty damn well. Not much in other news going on, but I do have pictures from the practice last night. So, have fun, enjoy those, and we now have pre-sale tickets for the show at Steel. Pick up one of those for $8 and you're effin' set to go, man. Hope to see you all either at the battle, or at Steel.

Woo Hoo! hey guys! After being amazing and doing all that recording, you can preview two songs on Formaldehyde's MYspace song player. You can find them here. And of course, if you haven't added Formaldehyde to your friends yet, you've gotta do that!But Inside Outside and Heartfelt Feeling are up now!! They do have yet to be mixed, but they sound amazing already! We also have something else for you to check out, Mandy has taken things into her own hands, and created a promotion "company". You also need to add that! Just click the banner.
.
But that's all that's new for now. The demo isn't finished yet, but they are planning on producing a sampler (or a pre-demo demo as I like to call it). so look forward for new updates on that! It should be around in February, not sure when, but it'll be out there soon. Just stay tuned for that, and other updates!

Local Bands, READ!   
05:31pm 03/01/2006
  "When did the local scene get so divided? Local bands need to support eachother, not compete with eachother. Battles of the Bands are just one instance. When we start promotion for a show, we plaster it everywhere. We don't have a huge following and if we don't promote the crap out of it we won't have much of a draw. But that leads to comments about shameless self promotion, and questions about where it is and isn't appropriate to promote. My question is... who cares? Every band in the world can promote on my page. Go for it. It's hard enough to promote, once other locals start shooting you down for it, it's just ridiculous. I say, let's stop the competition here and now. I've played at shows where a band will have all their people wait outside till they play, come in to watch them, then leave once their set is through. Kind of their way of saying "Hey club manager, look how many people WE can draw! Don't look at these other bands WE'RE the best!" My opinion is that's a little rude. I try and support my locals-- Even if we're not the best of friends, I know how hard it is, I'll say to any random person, "Hey, there's a local show this day, you should go" Whether I'm playing, or my best friends are playing, or whoever is playing. People get pissed off about having to open, people get pissed off about not being able to use their own drumset, people get pissed off about everything. Everybody wants to think they're better than everyone else. The truth is we're all on the same level. I don't care what kind of music you play or how old you are. We're all local high school bands, and that's the hardest kind of band to be in, you get screwed more than anyone else, getting stuck playing nothing but Sunday afternoon shows for 4 months straight, opening for bands you hate day after day, playing shows for no one but like 5 family members. Who hasn't been there? Or in my case, how about getting kicked off show after show. One show it'll be that there are some nationals coming through, so your show date gets moved. All that promotion you did was for nothing. Another show it'll be that the band setting it up doesn't want you. You're not as good as some other band they decided that they like better. So my opinion is, let's all support eachother. I would never knowingly shoot down another local band. When I set up shows, I book all kinds of random locals. I try to help a lot of bands get started. It'd be great to see some of the same consideration from others. Just because you win a battle of the bands or something doesn't make you better than everyone else. We're all on the same level. Sorry for ranting, I just wish everyone would support eachother a little more."

I've got a few updates for you guys, I kinda forgot about this journal. How sad is this? lol But on Wednesday, I went with Zach, Mandy, and Brian to Zach's Uncle's house to watch them do some recording. And of course to take some pictures. Zach and Mandy redid some of the bass tracks, because Jay couldn't make it, and then they redid some of the vocal tracks. Mandy was doing really well singing, probably because she wasn't sick for once! I think things went really really well, and really smoothly. They're going to continue the recording some time soon, and we're all hoping for an early spring release of the demo. Which will be grand when it happens. But I do have pictures for you guys of the recording process. You can find them here. Now in other news, we do have a new show coming up for you guys. I'll have that on another update. Rock on, guys!

CANCELLATION!!!!!   
06:18am 05/12/2005
 
mood: bummed
The show on Saturday December 17th has been cancelled. If you are so terribly bummed, be like the rest of the world and spend $40 to see FlyLeaf and Staind in Elmira... I'm sorry.
REASONING: The VFW is requesting $200 to rent the FREEZING ass pavilion. Proper heating would cost $75... plus like... $25 in kerosine. With those to fees I would have NO money to pay the bands for gas, performance and travel. And as mentioned above there is a Multi-Major Label (Staind, POD, Taproot and FlyLeaf) concert no more than 30 miles away that my show would not compete with. As much as I want the show to happen, I am trying to maintain a professional "good-show" booker and promoter... and I cannot risk a flunk show. Maybe I'm paranoid, maybe I'm smart... either way, I cant risk 15 disapointed bands and putting myself $500 in debt.

-- a Message from Brandon of inWard

I'm really sorry guys, I'm bummed about this, too :(

The show at Montage was AMAZING. And if you weren't there, that's really disappointing. Even though Dead To You had to drop, the show was still good. And I really loved inWard. They were great, and I cant wait until December 17th to see them and Formaldehyde again. You know what that means, another show comin' up. But hey, enjoy the 200 some odd pictures I took ^_~
