We had an awesome couple shows in the past week at the Baltimore House in Hamilton and Clinton’s in Toronto. Ed set his guitar on fire at the Baltimore House and we managed to get it on video – you can see it here –
Our new music video/single “Rise the Falling Sun” comes out on April 18, 2013 and there will also be a release show on April 18th at the Lyric Theatre in Hamilton. More details to follow. You can also catch us April 24 at Rancho Relaxo.

Our first day of shooting was January 20th at the Baltimore House. We picked it because it is a great venue with a great aesthetic and vibe and just an all around cool space. Finding places to shoot was probably the most difficult thing we encountered in making the video because we needed places with enough space to fit the band and the crew and also give us a cool back drop to shoot against. Grant and Jimmy from the Batimore were super helpful in setting us up with a day they were closed so we were able to shoot uninterupted by patrons of the bar. Our pal Kevin is also a bartender there so we were able to get him to make an appearance in the video as well. We came up with an outline of a schedule for the night and a plan of all the shots we needed to get and then just systematically worked down the list, and even finished the shoot ahead of schedule.
Our second day of shooting was January 24th at Porcelain Records, a rad Hamilton recording studio with a great warm & vintage vibe set up in an old dance hall. The huge studio space features all wood flooring, exposed beams and high ceilings giving it a very cool look that suited the band and the video. We had the band set up in a circle basically in the centre of the studio and then just worked down the list of shots we needed making sure to have continuity between the earlier shots, clothing and set up of the first shoot at the Baltimore. Marcone & Steve from Porcelain were really helpful in finding the time to get us in the studio to shoot, and the space was very well laid out so it made for an easy set up and take down. After the performance shots were finished we filmed us coming inside the studio, turning on and setting up our gear as well as some exterior shots of the building, and again finished ahead of schedule.
Our final shots were finished up on a few select strees around downtown Hamilton to provide some extra footage for the transition between the two locations.
Were very happy to be able to preview of the new music to come. The music video and song will both be released in April. In the mean time we have lots of exciting things going on, we are working to start recording the rest of the tracks for our new album. We also have a little project coming together with our pals in Beard. Stay tuned for more details.
And well see you at our 2 upcoming back to back shows: March 12th at the Batimore House in Hamilton March 13 at Clintons in Toronto
The trailer for our new music video and single goes up tomorrow night. We’ve got a new record on the way that we are working on and have also been making some plans with our pals in the blues-due “Beard”. Will post more info tomorrow! Peace
Last week we wrapped shooting the music video for our new tune “Rise the Falling Sun”, the single and video will be released in early spring in partnership with Cobalt Connects, a Hamilton based arts organization that gave us a $1000 grant to work on the video. All video shooting & editing will be handled by our pal James Maunder at http://www.thestreetfolk.com
We had a smokin’ weekend playing at Homegrown Hamilton with our blues brothers Beard. We played some new songs, and Ed walked outside of bar with his 50 ft guitar cord and set his guitar on fire and then played a solo, all in all a pretty heavy night.
We also spent a few nights last week shooting our music video for our new tune “Rise the Falling Sun”, our friends from Cobalt Connects who supplied us with the grant to make the video were also on hand helping out. We shoot at the Baltimore House and Porcelain Records, both in Hamilton and we will be posting some behind the scenes photo/video soon.
Were also done recording “Rise the Falling Sun” and are working on a bunch of new tunes still for the full length due out later this year.
We’re almost done recording our new song “Rise the Falling Sun”, going in tonight to track Ed’s solo and then were recording vocals on Saturday. Were also starting to shoot the music video over the weekend and finishing shooting hopefully next week. This weekend will we start the shooting at the Baltimore House, and next week at Porcelain Records. We hope to post some “behind the scenes” photos along the way so stay tuned.
We got some awesome news yesterday that we are one of the 4 reciepeients of the Cobalt Connects Music Video Grant for $1000, we partnered with our friend and videographer James Maunder in our application, and it will feature a song of the Telephone EP.
We also had a meeting last week with some very cool people who we are going to be working on a full length with. We have been at the jamspace every other day working on new material, we have about 18 songs in various stages of completion, that we will be adding to, and paring down by the time it comes to put them down on tape. We will have more news on this in the next couple weeks so stay tuned.
There is going to be a video blog coming your way sooner than later too!
November was a fun month for us, the Telephone video has been getting a great response, and was picked up by Alan Cross on his blog.
We played the Baltimore House for the first time with some other awesome blues acts, and were at the Casbah for a Hamilton Music Awards show, we also attended the HMA reception which was an awesome time (free steamwhistle). Congrats to all this yrs winners!
We’ve got a few things cooking for December and the new year. A cover we recorded of a Beatles tune will be going up soon. Were also planning another video with our pal James Maunder. There will be a Toronto show coming in December as well, and we’ve got a bunch of new tunes ready as well, who knows, maybe another EP sooner than later??
