 Shiprocked, the calm before the storm  

It may seem like we’ve been quiet but we’ve been battling some hellacious demons. Many that all of you face. We are trying to keep our head up and are looking forward to Shiprocked. This will be the biggest show I’ve ever played. I’ve been listening to Hyro the Hero, they are sick and I can’t wait to see them live. I also saw Papa roach and Asking Alexandria live the other day, Asking Alexandria will be on Shiprocked in February with us too. It’s almost unbelievable, I had someone tell me “you should be way more excited than you are...”. We are so excited all we want to do is show the world what we got. We are steadily hustling and writing songs, studying, working, grinding, practicing, talking, strategizing... 

Here lately I’m hearing more new metal on the radio so I’m hoping that people start wanting to support numetal more. I think our approach is different than those pioneers that came before us and I know that we have already left our stamp on this world. Thank you all so much for supporting us and purchasing merchandise. Thanks for coming to shows because many people don’t get out anymore. Live music is dying and all these shows are pay to play so how is any band supposed to survive? Here’s the typical Dallas show run down, you want to open up for a big band coming through town cool, I’m gonna need you to sell 50 tickets at $25 a pop. You’ll get $5 for every ticket you sell. You gotta sell at least 30, money is due before the set times will be established. More ticket sales equal a better slot. Damn sorry not sorry you have a day job load in is at 4pm, you go on at midnight. Maybe 8:30.... still waiting. No-one pays to get into these venues because everyone knows everyone. Tons of people get free drinks so these bars constantly lose money and close down. Any everyone wonders why their favorite band breaks up. Everyone wonders why their favorite venue closes down. The alternative is you play a show where you are lucky if your band makes $75 total. But the Tribute bands are doing great so at least we still have that.
