Oh hey there SHREDSTERS!
Here at Disaster’s Edge Incorporated, here’s a look into what we’ve been up to. The recordings are coming slowly, but surely in the beautiful Lake Cowichan, BC. Check out what we’ve been up to in the last little while:
Much love to all, keep it shred
Oh hey there beautiful friends of ours!
Some of you have been concerned asking yourselves “where in the world is Carmen San Disaster’s Edge?”
I’m sure that most of you would be more than glad to know that we’ve been alive and well, writing and recording new material and working on setting up some shows for the Summer of 2013. But, instead of rambling about our musings, here’s an update video:
Much love to all, keep it shred
Why, hello there!
According to disastersedge.com stats, shredsters are asking… “Where in the world is Carmen Disaster’s Edge?” Well, allow me to tell you!
Here at Disaster’s Edge Inc,
You may have noticed a new tab added to our header titled “Merch”. That’s right! Long awaited Disaster’s Edge merchandise is about to be available for you to order! I’m just waiting for design approval from two of the other guys and I’ll release the images and prices so you can order them from our web site.
In other news back at Disaster’s Edge Inc, this weekend we’ll be packing up and sailing off to a mystic, hidden realm to be referred to as “the studio”. We will keep you updated through the magic of photographs.
Moonfest 2012 was a little over a month ago, but that was the last time we made a post, so allow me to take a moment to thank everyone involved once more and give a shout out to Endurance, The Distributors, Lucy Mistreated, and Twinfly as well as all the other bands that RIPPED UP THAT STAGE! If you unfortunately missed this shred show, click the youtube tab on the top right of our page and check out the HD drum cam videos for All Nightmare Long, Fall of the World, and The Hope.
I’d love to tell you all about more heavy metal shenanigans, but it is a Monday night, and I’ve been separated from the boys by this thing called the malahat for the week due to school. So, tune in over the next few days to check out our first line of merch and place an exclusive order! If you have any questions or comments, contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
Until next time, Keep it shred!
Do you know what day it is? It’s Wednesday. And tonight is the night that we usually make love.
Why hello there shredsters,
In anticipation of MOONFEST. We would like you to read over some Disaster’s Edge news:
First order of business: our new bassist sounds metal as fuck, and it’s awesome. For those of you that don’t know who he is yet, please make sure to contact one of the band members for a ticket to the show to satisfy your curiosity.
Next on the agenda, well… actually… to be quite honest with you, I’d rather you come up to me before/after the show on Saturday with any of your questions about what the band is up to. What are we recording? When are we recording? Can our bassist fall off a cliff and be unscathed? How many liters of sweat will you lose at a Disaster’s Edge show from moshing? I will be available to answer all of your questions.
If you need a ticket for Saturday, text me at 250-686-6961 or stop by Frontside in Duncan to pick up tickets!
See you soon!
Keep it sexy, keep it shred
Why hello there you beautiful shredsters, how do you do today?
Back at Disaster’s Edge Inc., we’ve been busy shredding, writing, being metal as fuck, and partaking in things someone wearing a suit would not talk about.
[Disaster's Edge Inc. would like to clarify no suits were worn in the making of this post]
So, I do sit down to make posts every Friday, but the past couple of Friday’s I figured, you guys would probably rather wait to hear some real news (according to the stats) cause when things are happening, you love us <3 (we love you too) but when things aren't happening and I ask you guys to challenge Travis to do stupid shit when he's drunk, no one replies. (That is so not shred guys. I was fully prepared to respond with video…)
It's what… Monday today? Tuesday now? Something like that… Anyway, we're jamming Wednesday with a possible new bassist (which is shred as fuck) and we have another bassist lined up to try out as well. I WILL REVEAL NO NAMES until… of course, a decision is made, since that will be shred.
SHOWS SHOWS SHOWS!
We're going to be headlining the evening at MOONFEST! Which is a show out at providence farm on August 4th. If you want to support us, I can hook you up with tickets. It'll be all pre-sale and it's looking like it'll be sold out long before the date. So, if you want tickets, text me at 250-686-6961 (This is Troy) and I'll set you up. Tickets are $12 and money from the tickets goes right to the bands. SUPPORT YOUR BANDS! All proceeds we make will go toward our future studio endeavor.
That studio shit that I keep mentioning. How do you record a metal album without a bass player? If our bassist endeavor falls short for whatever reason (cause… you know, shit happens man) then we'll be looking for a studio musician (basically a fancy way of saying you can play a couple tracks with music provided perfectly) so, contact me either at the number above via text or by email email@example.com if this is something you'd be interested in. (or in playing bass with us full time, since we're in the try-out process)
INSTRUMENTAL LOVE AFFAIRS!
…wtf? …So! As some of you may know, I have a Washburn 7 string. I'm not really using it and would like it to go to someone who could really use a seven string guitar. I've got mine pretty tweaked out for metal (X2N bridge, D-sonic neck) so if you or someone you know is interested, let me know. If you know where I could find another Ibanez prestige V, let me know (cause I'm in love with them and don't wanna go back to anything else)
- Challenge Travis to do metal things
- We're trying out bassists right now
- Buy tickets for MOONFEST from us; all proceeds we make go to our studio fund
- Can't record without a bassist: see above
- Ibanez Prestige V's are shred as fuck
To everyone reading this, I love all of you!
Keep it shred!
[Insert obligatory comment about the 2012 grad events going on in the neighborhood]
Words can’t even fathom the amount of obscene one liners that have been thrown around in the last 12 hours… but back to the issues:
Disaster’s Edge Inc. has some very top secret things we’re in progress of. It may involve another member, it may involve a lot of redneck nonsense, and it most certainly will involve recording. Dates TBA.
Also, while Travis is distracted; Challenge Travis to do something metal while drinking. email your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll post next week. email me ALL THE IDEAS!
That is all
All of you.
Look at your beautiful faces.
That’s right… turn on your web cam and check yourself out for a moment.
In other news… As far as I’m aware, we’re getting geared up to record for the weekend of the 22nd. (Just waiting to hear back on Jake’s buddy who owns the studio we’re booking time at.) and we’ll be laying down two very sexy tracks for all of you. If you’ve come out to our shows in recent weeks, you may have heard these two marvelous works. Words cannot express the excitement we have back at Disaster’s Edge Inc. for stepping into the studio and laying these tracks down to perfection. (But, hand gestures, facial gestures, and maybe some spontaneous noises could help to express the plethora of excitement in the band’s airspace.)
If you read our post last week, or if you’ve seen Travis in the past week, you may have noticed that he recently got his ear pierced. Now… Funny story… He talked a friend of ours into piercing his ear with an olive pick. Turns out gin works really well for sterilizing piercings, since there’s no sign of infection and it’s looking good.
Also, I received a piece of fan mail this week, someone told us we may have to change our logo…
Let us know what you think @disastersedge
PS. We’re not going to change our logo. Stay sexy. Keep it metal.
So, here at Disaster’s Edge Incorporated, a little too much… “substance” has been consumed, and Travis has talked a friend of ours into piercing his ears in a basement kneeled over a futon. The moral of the story, we enjoy partaking in what one might call “a party”
More on what we’re doing with the music…
We’re getting ready to record out in Lake Cowichan… I believe the dates are June 22-24th and we’ll be recording a 2 song demo! (yeahhhh)
Also, we’re playing a show June 30th with Brain Fever and Spud, and possibly someone else.
(quote Travis at 1:49am) “Troy! Is there a hole in my ear!??”
Also, when we get money, we’ll make hoodies and t-shirts for all you awesome folks. and since it’s summer and we’re no longer in school, we hope to see you buying some cool stuff logo’d with DISASTER’S EDGE!
I love all of you. Travis wants you to have his babies. (but he doesn’t know it. I guarantee he’ll deny it. be persistent.)
Keep it sexy, keep it metal.
Here at Disaster’s Edge Inc…
We’ve been at works on lots of things… BUT I CAN’T SHOW YOU ANY OF THEM YET. Gotta keep that shit encrypted. I will say this: Composing, T-shirts, A-logs.
(Jesus… the above belongs on a tweet)
We have a show booked for sometime late June, but the details have escaped me at the moment. They’re written down somewhere (much like everything else). Depending on when we schedule our studio time for, we may have recordings to present you, the loyal follower of Disaster’s Edge, with.
I’d announce a winner for our contest from last week (can be viewed here) but it would appear no one entered. If you entered and we didn’t receive your entry, please point it in my direction ( Troy@disastersedge.com ) I’m trusting we wont have any late entry bullshit and you guys are honest and such.
I’d like to give a shout out to The Body Politic, who won the Joe’s Apartment band search over in Vancouver earlier this week. Great guys. If you haven’t heard them, check ‘em out.
If you have any news in local music you’d like to get featured on here, give me a shout via twitter @disastersedge or @troyserson. Otherwise, stay tuned. More details on the upcoming Disaster’s Edge release soon. Keep it sexy.
