Colony 5 Progress Update

C5 released the following update about their upcoming album's progress:

"Sorry for not updating the news so often, and ironically it's because we have too much news :)
What we can tell you so far is that the title is pretty much set, and what song we will release as a single is also decided. Furthermore the design of borth the album and single is all but finished. What we're doing right now is finishing up the production of the last few songs, and P-O is recording the lyrics on the few left unrecorded.
We have also been in contact with different merchandising companies, merch is something that we are almost famous for not having so there will hopefully be a change there.
We will have more specific news for you next month, and soundbites will start to appear soon also. Keep the faith, mates!"

I predict their merchandise will be super sexy considering the aesthetic of their website. Here's to hoping I'll have a cool addition or two for my meager wardrobe.

Assemblage 23 Tour Venue Changes

Here are a couple updated venues for A23's upcoming tour. To say I'm excited about this tour would be a major understatement.

El Paso Venue Change
Yet another venue has closed its doors, so we have had to move the El Paso show originally scheduled to be at Lucky Devil's. The show will now be held at Chic's located at 9809 Montana Ave.
El Paso, TX. All other details remain the same.

Tulsa Oklahoma Venue and Line-Up Change
Mooch & Burn, the venue originally listed for A23's upcoming Tulsa show has announced it is closing, so the show has been moved to a new venue. The new venue is Blue Dome, 311 E. 2nd St. in Downtown Tulsa. The good news about this is that instead of being a 21+ show, the show is now ALL AGES! Additionally, Echoing Green has replaced Provision as one of the support acts.

Imperative Reaction Tour Dates

I just heard Imperative Reaction was coming to my neck of the woods soonly and thought I'd check their site to find the details. It seems they didn't have their tour information on their official website, only their MySpace page which I find just completely wonky. Here they are, posted for your convenience.

Additional Seabound Live Dates Announced

Seabound has announced a handful of additional live dates before they claim they will "cease their live activities for some time." More dates should be forthcoming soon, but don't hold your breath. I'm very sad they couldn't manage to get on the ticket when Covenant rolled through the States. Now, it looks like a our chance of seeing them any time soon is slim to none. Good on you Germans and Brits! I'll wait patiently.

Iris Video

I'm all excited to see Iris in a couple weeks, so to share this enthusiasm, here's a video of them performing the song Imposter. The video's creator, NastyByte, provided me with additional details. She writes:

This was filmed at Nation in Washington DC. right before it was destroyed. I was extremely upset about this shoot because Iris was put on a little sidestage that had poles in front of it, and then to top that off, an image was projected behind their set promoting a soon-to-be-extinct event! So the whole video became mostly close-ups of Reagan - with the extreme close-up being his eye...

Colony 5 Album to be Released in October

As written on their website:

Cheers mates,
rain is sweeping the nation and houses are evicted, roads closed and things are just lovely. So we're storming ahead with production, we are confident that we will keep our deadline. There ought to be an album out come october, fingers crossed.
More info next week, keep checking back!

Let's hope they don't get swept into a fjord before they can finish. Best of luck, lads. I'm eagerly anticipating this one.
