This weekend we have two free shows – Friday @ the Newburgh Free Library as part of the Newburgh Illuminated Festival, and then Saturday @ the Lucky 13 Saloon in Brooklyn as part of their Annual Summer Solstice Event. Again, both of these shows are F-R-E-E! Come out and enjoy the nights following the two longest days of the year with us. For free.

The very next day we hit the Isokon with D. James Goodwin again to start recording our new album! We’re aiming for a September release and we’ll have a lot more info on that in the coming weeks. This one has been a long time coming and we’re really excited.

We’ve been kind of quiet that past month or so, but we’ve been holed up in our jam room, hard at work on new tunes. We have a lot that we’re really excited to share- a new sonic arsenal (with some help from verellen amplifiers), a whole new stage show, a new vehicle, and a new album- we’ll have announcements about that coming soon. For now, know that we have big plans for our follow-up to WAITING IN WAVES, and we’re hoping for a early summer release.

2013 Halloween Tribute Shows: WHITE ZOMBIE!

It’s with a great excitement that we announce this year’s halloween tribute shows!

Sometime around every Halloween, we get put on a show(s) and pay homage to some of our favorite bands. Last year, we did a string of shows as “The Misfarts”- performing tribute sets to The Misfits (with our very own Roberto Hull as “Danzig”!), and this year we’re upping the ante. We’re proud to announce that this year for our halloween tribute, we will be paying homage to one of our favorite bands growing up as dumb, impressionable metal kids in the burbs- the pseudo-satanic, horror-themed shitshow that was WHITE ZOMBIE.

And we’re getting started a little early this year- we have three shows lined up where we will be doing full WHITE ZOMBIE (and some DEAD EMPIRES) sets!

10/25 @ The Alter, New Paltz NY w/ BILLxNYE,Holocronourselves (RSVP)
10/26 @ Skin City Tattoos, New Windsor, NY w/DEAD CHANNELS (RSVP)
10/31 @ Leftfield NYC, Brooklyn NY w/ “Misfits”, “Alkaline Trio”, and more (RSVP)

And the shows are all costume parties and are either free or for band donation- so come party with us this halloween!!
