Hey, we're on a podcast over heah!
Everyone's favorite EP title track, "Dude, Girl" is featured on the latest episode of the Men Seeking Tomahawks Podcast! Big thanks to Jack and Dan for letting our little ditty out to play.
On that note, we love having our jams played on anything and everything. If you have a use for our song in your project, go ahead and use it! Podcasts, videos, whatever! All we ask is that you give us a heads up so we can do the ol' cross-promotional tango with you.
Grams of an Instant Nature
And... yeah, I guess I'll just shove this here. I setup an Instagram account for the band that you can follow. We'll be posting at least one photo/video from each show we play as well as any other miscellany we happen to dredge up from the bowels of our collective photo collections. Give it a follow if you're so inclined.
Other Bite Size News Morsels
- Dude, Girl vinyl test pressings are < 4 weeks away
- Practicing a new song called "That One Song" (it'll make sense when/if you hear it)
- Ian got a dog. Robbie is getting a dog. What are these, the dog days?! It ain't summer yet, fellas!
I've been treating this news section as little more than a dribbling faucet of random tidbits. Well, this ends now! It's 2015 for heaven's sake! It's time to get all rambly! Let's do this.
First up, we got some info of the dudish/girlish variety. Towards the reverse-cusp of 2014 we released a charmingly delightful 4-song EP on BandCamp called Dude, Girl, and I'm happy to hear myself type that you can now buy the damn thing on other services (such as iTunes or Google Play) as well! And why wouldn't you want to purchase such a magnificent assemblage of ditties? Not only is it on Black Sheep's Top 10 Albums list, but the eponymous track managed to infect the Top 10 Songs list as well! Now don't you feel like a jerk? A jerk with too many dollars, perhaps? Hmmmmmmm?
Well, if you're wanting to spend those cumbersome dollars on a vinyl version of the EP, I don't have an ETA, but I can assure you it is most definitely "in the pipeline" as my nonexistent crude oil-championing friends are keen on saying. But if you're seriously so strapped for some Dude, Girl action and want to get it on the sly/free, you can stream that shit on Spotify or SoundCloud or YouTube. Speaking of YouTube, now you can also stream our previous full length album, Sangamon County Minefield over there!
Or, you know what, fuck it. You can do that shit right here:
Oh yeah. That's some sweetness.
Speaking of Black Sheep - and indeed, of sweetness - the Illinois Times did us all one h-e-double lowercase L's of a favor and finally got to the bottom of the nebulous mystery that is South Town, explaining the hows, the whys, and the whodathunks of all the cool shit those dudes are doing over there. You may recognize one such dude's photo-ma-graph dangling precariously below the byline. Tis none other than our resident bass-molester, Brandon Carnes! He also recorded that Dude, Girl EP some insufferable asshole was typing about earlier. Weird world, this one.
More news'ins to come!
Did you know we have a YouTube channel? Weird, eh?
Anyway. I decided it would be nice to be able to stream all of our stuff on YouTube since it's usually the de facto way for party people to party to music while they party. First up, we have our new EP, Dude, Girl!
More to come! Stay tuned!
If you're reading this (and I have my doubts) then your eyeballs are undoubtedly eyeballs deep in our newfangled website-a-ma-jig! We applaud your tenacity. Okay, settle down.
Let's get down to business.
We'll be releasing our new 4 song EP, Dude, Girl, digitally on Tuesday, September 2nd! You can stream a song from it right over here at Dying Scene.
It was recorded by our bassist, Brandon Carnes, at the lovely South Town Studio right here in sweet ol' Springfield, Illinois and then mixed and mastered by the The Blasting Room. Local songstress Lorin Devine painted the cover art. The plan is to get it out in 7-inch form as soon as we possibly can.
As for the new website, feel free to poke around what little we currently have on display. Maybe sign up for the mailing list while you're at it. We'll have the online store up and running pretty soon.
