Hello to everyone throughout the greater galaxy and a few suburbs, Even In Blackouts are on a hiatus for a few months while we return to our lives and try to make sense of our situations. Liz and I are due for a meeting to discuss the future of the band. The last two tours: Europe and The East Coast, went very well, but it took alot out of us. I am beginning to feel like the band needs to find a new way of promoting itself. I tried to create a punk band by doing things that I have never done before, in order not to repeat myself. I think we succeeded, but in the process we have put ourselves slightly out of the market with which I was most familiar. I love touring the pop punk circuit, but I feel it does not love us as much. I am taking some time to analyze this dilemma and see if we have to formulate a new game plan. I don't know anything other than the do it yourself punk world, so I am a little confused on where to go from here. I have tried many labels with a bit more booking power and better distribution, but no one is biting. This should be the time to analyze the band and figure out whether we suck. But I hear so much good about the band, that I don't want to give up that easily. We have had bad reviews, but we have had opposite amazing reviews for the same shows and the same albums. I pretty much new this would happen going into Zeitgeist's Echo, but I didn't want that to stop me and Liz from experimenting with less acceptable ideas in the punk vein. Anyway, I am just babbling because this is on my mind lately.
But if any of you fans have any ideas about labels, or scenes, or booking agents, or managers that are into our type of music just let us know by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also there is a Scottish online zine that is pretty popular that is publishing and interview with me. It's pretty interesting, take a look at it. It's very thorough.
There is also an in depth review of Zeitgeist's Echo by the same interviewer that I will be posting soon.
thanks for listening.
