It is time: Conjurer’s first recording is ready to go! We are finishing up a limited edition of physical copies and will be releasing everything very soon (we are holding out until our next show). You can pre-order the record at Music.Conjurer.in now – when you do, you will get an immediate download of “Marauders” and an email to download the rest when the other three tracks are released.
If you’d like to get one of the fifty physical metal tin versions, you can pick one up at a show, or pre-order it as well (the download is free).
I’m excited to have this out the door, but more excited to record again – we have some awesome new stuff that needs to see a proper studio.
I’ve been playing music again. The project has been dubbed Conjurer, and we’ve been working on material for the past year or so. Recently we started playing out in the Indianapolis area, and last week the first video evidence on our onslaught surfaced. I’m not sure who grabbed this, and while the audio quality jumps around, it’s great to be able to share the set with anyone unable to make it.
We’ve recently finished our first DIY recording, and will be available at the Conjurer BandCamp page soon. We will definitely be playing more shows and recording again soon. Stay tuned, and be sure to like us on Facebook.
A friend of mine passed away recently. Tonight there is a memorial show in his honor that I am going to do my best to get to. Jared was a truly talented guitar player, and a great guy. I spent a week on the road with him in 2002; braving some crazy snow storms while on tour with Mara’Akate. Years later Thin Fevers was fortunate enough to play shows with The Dream is Dead, and I was able to capture The video below. It showcases a great example of Jared’s amazing guitar prowess.
I first saw Jared play with a band called Legion my freshman year of college at Ball State University. I’ll never forget watching Jared completely shred a lightning bolt adorned guitar while his hair swung around him. Being a small town kid that had only recently discovered punk rock; that show with Legion was one of my first experiences watching a metal band, and honestly Jared Southwick was part of a moment that quite literally changed my life forever.
Tonight I will go see some of the same bands that played that day, and remember a man that people across the world already miss terribly.
Today I share a most overdue post – the second and final episode of the RockitBomb.TV pilot project. I am happy to post an interview and set opener from Russian Circles, an amazing band that I have had the fortune to see multiple times, as well as the honor of sharing a bill with them via Thin Fevers.
Check out Andy and Annie’s interview, and the band’s set opener from the April 23rd, 2009 show at Radio Radio .
For anyone who missed my previous post – this project was a collaboration that I embarked on last summer with A2 Industries. Unfortunately, due to my career change, and A2 busy bringing awesome to Indianapolis, the project has been indefinitely shelved.
Thanks to the guys in Russian Circles and A2 for being awesome to work with!
