So I figured I’d start this blog by getting you up to speed on a few goings on of late. The first thing is that I updated the website (which you likely noticed when you came to this page). We decided it was time for a new look and I hope you all enjoy it. The second thing is that ‘Closure’ was recently nominated for ‘Rock Recording of the Year 2012’ and ‘Recording of the Year 2012’ at the Durham Music Awards. The ceremony/show was last night and although I didn’t end up winning, it was an honour to be nominated alongside such talented artists. I want to thank everyone for the love and support that I’ve been receiving since I released ‘Closure’ last January. I can’t believe how well the EP has been received, especially since it is my first release. Thank you so much for making it a success!
Now on to upcoming shows… the lads and I will be playing the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern once again on Thursday January 3rd at 9:00pm for the one year anniversary for ‘Closure’. If you want to come, e-mail your first and last name to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the guest list! Otherwise, it’ll be $5 at the door the night of. We want everyone who is able to be there to party with us! It’s going to be a blast. We have also been accepted to play at Canadian Music Week in March 2013, more details for that to come!
Alright now a little bit of something that’s been bugging me. Canada is one of the most naturally beautiful places in the world. I love being able to see all this beauty in the land that I call home. Now, for some reason our “leader” has decided that this is not something worth protecting. On December 4th there were 2 million (actual number) protected lakes and 8,500 protected rivers. December 5th, thanks to Cpt. Jackass (AKA Harper), there are 97 protected lakes and 62 protected rivers in Canada. (insert slow clap) I mean what the fuck? Seriously? I don’t want to live on this planet anymore. I don’t understand how the pursuit of wealth is held so much higher than the common sense of, “I need air to breath and water to drink if I want to survive?” Did nobody else read the Lorax when they were kids? I don’t think the concept could’ve been laid out any simpler than a Dr. Seuss book with lots of colourful pictures! The issue isn’t saving the planet. We’re essentially a disease that the planet will recover from unless we blow it up with Nukes or something. The issue is that it is become uninhabitable!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH RORY SMASH!!!!!!
Alright, back to earth (if it’s still there). As your awesome photo for the blog I present to you how Boyes and I party!
Until next time, I love you all. Yes even you Spun.
