We are really looking forward to our holiday shows coming up later this month in CT, Rhode Island and Long Island. Mike and Kellen will make their return to the stage and will be playing their final shows with I Am The Avalanche. These 3 shows will be beautiful occasions and a celebration of our friendship. Be sure to get your tickets if you haven't already, since these will truly be shows to remember.
Our new full-length record is now completely finished and news about our album, our touring plans (home and abroad), and new members joining us will roll out shortly. Cheers!
I've started a blog entitled "Four Chords & Seven Years Ago." While the name may seem cheesy, the intent is anything but that. What I hope to accomplish is to open your ears (and mine) to something that you may not have heard before in hopes that it will drive you to explore music. I'll be grabbing people within the industry to contribute weekly. Head to the replies to read the first installment, which is an introduction to the feature and I talk about Down To Earth Approach.
Just a friendly reminder to make sure you check us out on other social networks. We are on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Last.fm, and Rdio. The AP.net staff can also be found elsewhere online, this post highlights where. Show us some love.
Young Fox's debut EP, Predecessors, will be available digitally this Tuesday, December 10, but you can stream it early in the replies. The band includes Zao bassist Marty Lunn, but they're an entirely different beast. You'll be reminded of '90s alterantive rock like Hum, Deftones and Smashing Pumpkins.
"We can actually make it the quality that we want to make it at," says frontman Jeremy McKinnon. "Instead of somebody saying, 'This is the cutoff for the budget,' we can say, 'No, this is going to be around forever and we want to put out quality stuff.'"
"After 13 years, John and I are parting ways," McDonald said in a statment. "It's been a magnificent journey, which began before his debut album, and along the way has included seven Grammy awards, years of massively successful tours around the world, and over 20 million albums sold. I hold John's talent in the highest regard and wish him nothing but the best."
One of the cool perks offered by the Reggie and the Full Effect Kickstarter was the ability to get Reggie to cover any song you wanted. AP.net reader and backer, Peter, had RATFE cover He is Legend's "Dicephalous" -- and because Peter is awesome -- he wanted to share it with everyone. You can check it out in the replies.
