Song Farming

It's always nice when everyone's on the same page and you get to follow that one initial idea from seed to fruit as a group of musical farmers tilling and fertilizing the soil of your collective creativity! Can't wait until the harvest! Until then we'll get together, hop on our rhythmic tractors, scoot on out to the various farmer's markets with last year's yield in tow, and sell off our crops at unbelievable prices.

Touring Band!

We're not going out for two months or anything, but we are going out of town for a few consecutive shows next week. It may not seem like a big deal to some people, but it's another step in the right direction for us. You don't have to wait for a manager and label to start making things happen. In fact, if you do, you're doing it wrong. Get out of town and put yourself in front of some new faces! Even if it's just a Friday and Saturday, hit the road and have a little rock n' roll adventure!

Have a wonderful Friday!

Hey, guise/gowls. Here's the deal: we need your help! If you're reading this, it means you care enough about our band to willfully check further into our goings on than what we post on Facebook. I suppose there's also the possibility that you're reading this to see if we say anything outlandish that you can then take back to town and spread as gossip. If that's why you're here, you're going to leave disappointed today. Congratulations, you're appointed. I appointed you and now I'm disappointing you. Sorry.

Now then. We just released a seven song ep called Exile Boy Vol. 1: The Quiet Desert, and we're giving it away for free online. If you haven't checked it out yet, please do so just after reading this! It's very simple to download from our Soundcloud page. No signing up or anything of the sort to do if you go that route. And if you don't have the time to listen right now, just grab the tunes and keep em on your hard drive until you do!

All we're asking in return is for you to send a friend or two our way. Tell a few people why you think we're awesome and why they should check us out. Link to our video for Defector vs. The Angel of Stranglehold Crime and perhaps watch it again if you haven't done so in awhile. Leave a comment on our Facebook page or start a bullshit thread on our forum. Whatever you feel like doing to help out in any small way you can will be much appreciated.

It's been awhile!

This past Saturday we played the release show for Exile Boy Vol. 1: The Quiet Desert, our first ep as Sleep Star Ignition. The evening went very well. We played great, had a room full of nice people to perform in front of, and even sold a few items. I'd say the night was a success!

Earlier on Saturday we also had some new pictures taken, some of which include me engaging in a very cheap fantasy roleplay where I use sticks for swords. It was pretty badass.
