Well, we have had this blog for quite sometime now - and tend to writing in it every 6 months or so - boring I know. I am going to change that and commit to updating you guys with whats going on in the evoka world at least once a week, maybe twice a week. Please hold me accountable.
Well, our CMJ campaign is over - we did chart in the top 200 hundred a few times, which was our goal, however for some reason we still feel let down? I guess we were hoping in a big surge in record sales, or labels to come calling etc… but no worries, we will keep it rocking.
We had a show a couple weeks ago in morganton, thanks to all of you who came out, it was good to play again. Also have a couple coming up, we are stoked.
Bryan and I are slammed at Airtype - currently working on some t-shirts for the passion world tour coming up this summer, coming out really cool thus far. We just hired a web developer, James - man talk about a genius… this guy is a freak when it comes to knowing about computers. I looked on his desk the other day and saw a huge text book titled “Algorithms in C++” - I mean for real, who reads that stuff? But seriously james is a very cool guy, a blessing to Airtype, and we are glad to have him join the family.
I haven’t talked to Taylor much recently, I know he and Katie getting ready to move and staying busy with that. He is also working alot building houses with his dad.
Pete is on another vintage guitar kick… for those of you who know him know he is crazy about some guitars, he and I both really. He just picked up a 1966 sunburst P-bass and added it to the collection and now he already looking at some thinlines, its wild - but super cool. He is also about to go back on tour with OURS and helping then tune and set up their guitar rigs.
Speaking of OURS, I finally picked up their new record “mercy”. Its a great record, I think its gonna do OURS well. I have had a copy of it for over a year now, so I knew what to expect from it. I was kinda let down by the design & packaging… in my opinion this band deserves nothing but the best - and it seems they came up short in this dept - but the music is great.
A couple other records I picked up was the new one from ELBOW - “The Seldom Seen Kid” - wow wow wow… Elbow just keeps getting better and better - this record is sick… thats all I really have to say… my favorite track thus far… “Grounds for Divorce”.
The 3rd record was Flight of the Concords, haha this stuff is great. If you ever need a good laugh… just youtube some of their videos or listen to some songs… its great. Its very well done and its hard not to get a kick from it.
Well, I guess im off to go carry furniture - my brother is moving and has suckered me in to help. Hope you guys are having a great weekend and are geared up for monday. I promise Ill be back soon to write more!-P
