Now that we’ve got Shane trained in, backup vocals added, and a few new covers learned, we’re booking shows like crazy. Our September filled up pretty fast and we’re now looking to book through the end of the year. It’s so great to be playing again!
We’re also really hard at work on our album. Vocals. Are. DONE. There are a few very, very minor guitar re-recordings to do, but otherwise guitar, bass, and FX are all done and mixed. All that’s left is the drums!

Check out our Photos page for our very first batch of official photos taken by Ellie Jerow. We finally gathered the crew on a rare day free from practice and toured the industrial areas of Milwaukee for some great shots. We selected 5 of the best group shots, touched them up a bit, and are now going to use those for all official branding!
We’re also starting to book shows left and right. Since our last update we’ve now added a Sept 12th show at Papa’s Social Club with The Mood Manual from Madison, and we are going to open up for a touring act at the Y-Not III on Sept 17th.

Thanks to Shane, the new guy, we finally have a new show booked. At the end of this month we’ll be playing at Fixture Brewing Company out in Waukesha. It looks like we’ll be down one guitarist for the set with Kent covering both parts, but we’ll still play a 45-minute ass-kicking set. It feels great to be back.

Last weekend we had our last two shows with Juan on vocals. He’s making some career changes which involve full-time work plus school in the evenings, so he gracefully bowed out. The last two shows were great, and we’ll miss him, but we are already auditioning a replacement. Additionally, we’ll keep most of the vocal parts already written and will even squeeze some recordings out of Juan before he fully exits. (more…)

Else is really settling in as a band, and it feels great. It’s not yet even been 9 months since we found our lineup, and we’ve already played 7 great shows plus a few small acoustic sets for friends. We have two more shows on the books (November 7th with Tigernite at the Up and Under and Dec 7th at Club Giribaldi), and are working on setting up 2014 shows.
As far as the music itself goes, we have an hour’s worth of original material and are working on more now. (more…)

We’ve had 3 fantastic shows in the last two weeks and have met a ton of great bands and fans. It was a ton of fun finally playing at the legendary Blue Pig on August 10th, I still can’t believe we got to share a show with Encryptor on August 16th, and we had our first Madison show just this last Wednesday the 21st. Highlights of those shows were definitely the bands Encryptor, Ultrea, and Red the Wolf, who we hope to play with again.
So, after 3 shows in the last 2 weeks, we’re slowing down just a bit, but certainly not stopping. (more…)

Else will finally be making it out to Madison on Wednesday, August 21st. Our local, Milwaukee metal friends, NocturnAngel, invited us out and we quickly accepted. We’ll be playing a 45 minute set.
More details to come soon!

We had a great time at Whammy Bar last night and really enjoyed our opening act, Fadeback. It was great to finally play a full set, playing all of our songs, some of them for the first time.
With that show behind us, we now have 3 upcoming shows in July/August. You can always check out calendar for more details, and we hope to see you July 27th in Madison, August 10th at the Blue Pig, and August 16th and the Down and Over.

Our full set at the Whammy Bar last night was absolutely a blast. It’s great to finally get all of the songs debuted in public! Fadeback did a great job opening up for us, and we’ll be sure to play a show with them again soon.
