What could be better than a week at sea with your favorite goth band? Nothing! We’re officially booked to perform on the 2013 Gothic Cruise! Start making travel plans ASAP, as space is limited and we fully expect this awesome, unique event to sell out!
We have gotten a mountain of requests for physical copies of Rare And Unreleased (Volume 1), so I’ve decided to do a very limited CD run!
Pre-order now to get this compilation of our previously-unreleased early work, including the song “Fall No More” and our first demo release “Remorse”!
If you’re a hardcore horror fan I know you’ll love my latest novella, NO TURNING BACK, which was published by DarkFuse last week! The hardcover edition sold out, but it’s available as an ebook pretty much everywhere!
Tony and I sat down with You Sound Like A Robot after a killer weekend at Mysticon. Here’s what we had to say!
We made it safely home around 7pm last night after an amazing weekend at Mysticon in Roanoke, VA. To say I had fun would be the understatement of the century. There’s a vibe at these geek conventions (and being a certified geek myself, I feel a-okay using the term) that is somewhat hard to find elsewhere; A warmth of kindred souls meeting. I spent some time thinking about why that feeling exists, and came up with something very simple. People are happiest when they’re being exactly who they want to. With all the awesome, outlandish costumes at these things, it’s damn near impossible to judge anyone. So everyone seems comfortable and completely in their element. It’s just a shame that this atmosphere doesn’t spill over into the streets more often. I can’t tell you how happy I’d be to see Darth Vader or the Hulk on my way to grab a cup of coffee down on Main Street! People are just happy at these things, and I don’t ever recall seeing a fight at a con. People go to revel in things they’re passionate about and to meet the people behind these tv shows, books, and bands. And it’s rad.
The author panels i sat on were a lot of fun, as was discussing the state of gothic music with some very passionate fans on Saturday evening. We performed at midnight on Saturday to a packed ballroom using a sub-par PA system that would be more appropriate for a high school graduation ceremony. And it was a blast! A huge thanks to the staff at Mysticon and all the fans who made it such an incredible weekend! You guys are the best!
Tony & I arrived in Roanoke after noon yesterday & got our rooms and vendor table squared away. At 5 we were on a panel with the other guests of honor to kick off the weekend. Being a huge fan of Battlestar Galactica, I was psyched to be beside Nicki Clyne and Richard Hatch. She’s completely adorable and he’s as nice a guy as you’ll meet. To close out the ceremony Tony & I played an acoustic version of Earth Angel that I’m hoping shows up on YouTube. Richard threw in a pretty great high note at the end of the song that needs to be heard by the world!
Tonight we’re performing in Ballroom C at midnight. Come see us!
