Reporting Back After Last Week’s CD Release

February 7, 2009

We finally released our new album, “Confluence”, at last Saturday night’s show at Fitzie’s Irish Pub in Binghamton.

Thanks to everyone who came out and double-thanks to the 20 or so of you who bought CDs.

The night got off to a late start with The Jigawatts not going on until around 10:45 PM. They brought the energy and the old-school punk pretty well though. And they did a great cover of Black Flag’s “Wasted” so that always scores points with us.

Dance-A-Tron (Kevin’s other band) went on around 11:20 PM and delivered, as usual, a brutally fast and furious set. Their new album is out now, too. Contact them to get a copy.

Call For Backup followed next, and then we finally got to roll into our set after 1 AM. I hate to sound old and cranky, but that’s pretty late for us old fogies these days.

That being said, we had  a great time tearing through our intentionally short set…only to get called back up to play two additional songs (we went with “True Position” and “Kinetic Momentum”).

We appreciate all the support and hope anyone reading this will help us out, too, by picking up our new CD at future shows or by emailing bijoydatta@yahoo.com.

New Album Coming Out This Month

January 10, 2009

We’re happy to finally announce that our new album, “Confluence”, will be released later this month.

We started recording work on “Confluence” way back in March 2008 so, after almost a year of toiling away at it, we’re anxious to finally get it out for people to hear.

We hope you’ll come to the show or contact us ahead of time to pre-order it. To pre-order, please email Bijoy at bijoydatta@yahoo.com.

If you want to check out what the record will sound like, please visit our Myspace page, where you can download a few live demo versions of tracks on “Confluence”.
