April Fool's Joke
that's right.. for all those that came to RTTP on the day of April 1st were greeted by the smiling dullard head of zack morris
the surprise "zack attack" annoyed a lot of people. Since I've never ever done an April Fools Joke before, I figured it was high time. I hope everyone out there enjoyed it as much as I did.
I'm just glad that they were paying attention. don't worry, when midnight came around, everyone was saved by the bell.
NEIWP: vol 1
As mentioned on the last e-mail, the "rttp community" took it upon themselves to build a CD compilation of all their bands. it would seem that Vol 2 is in the works now. Check out the CD cover:
I guess volume 1 will be out for NEMHF7!
My bestfriend ( www.mikegodwin.org ) designed a new RTTP logo for T-shirts. Now, I just have to get the colors, sizes, and a place to run shirts. The design prodos look pretty sickly.
there is not a set date for them yet
please! buy a hoodie while they last. I only have 1-3 left of some sizes.
get it, RTTP!
fast approaching... April 22nd-24th. 3 days, 2 stages with something for everyone!
help me!! help rttp!! help your band!!
also, I'm jumping on the bandwagon with the whole "free iPod" thing. ALTHOUGH my reasons are more altruistic. My girlfriend and others that I know actually did get this to work. The reason I want an iPod is so I can play new songs and demo tracks from bands on the RTTP show without having to burn a cd with one track on it.
Please, help me. If you are in a band, this ultimately helps you:
just go to
http://www.freeiPods.com/?r=13213414 , sign up and fill out one of the offers.
If you have questions, e-mail me.
Ok, it's been a long time since the first time I saw these guys.
2 and a half years ago (almost to the date), since then and they have consistantly impressed me, getting better and tight each time.
I remember after the first time I saw them, some people played them off as just another hardcore act. "and the guitar player and bass player singing too, why do we need another hatebreed/blood for blood band"
this of course was said by people that have never seen them.
if you like hardcore, it's pretty hard not to get into these guys after you see them. Listening to their music runs through a hardcore gambit of old school, new school, nyc, and boston.
listening to this music, you can find influences from old agnostic front and Madball and bulldozer to "newer" bands like "chaulked full of sing alongs" death threat and reach the sky to punker-hardcore panic-type bands and even a little social distortion, maybe?
their ability to grab more fans at every show is what has put them where they are now. Starting (like all bands) at a little show in some ass-backwards town to today where they have toured the US a few times and...
just got back from touring europe!
they released their first CD a few years back on Spooky City Records
featuring their "anthem" song <i>true til death</i>
a song that just screams "pile up" and "sing along".
in 2004, bridge 9 made one of their smartest moves ever, signing dbd. 2005, had them releasing "friends, family, forever" on B9 (with the new anthem song of the same title). Why was this such a smart move for b9? It expands their base of music, sounding different from all other b9 bands and adds a band to their roster that is on the way up.
How do they do it? how do they constantly top themselves on every show? First off, they are one of the few bands that hasn't had a single member leave.. a very rare thing now a days.
Second, they started off with a loyal fan base of supportive friends who still come out to every show.
Also, they also have a style that changes enough from song to song allowing more people to find something in their music.
and finally, they work really really hard.
if you don't know them yet, get out and see them, now.
PS: if you've never seen them before, you might want to wear a cup.
