We recorded our second album last week.
On a drunken evening sometime in September, Mike De and I filmed a video set to an unreleased song of ours called, “The Waltz For The End Times.” This short film consists of Mike dancing with a stuffed lion while I analyze his performance. No one watched it. So we were safe to make more. No one watched those. We’re still making them. Right now, we’re up to 8. Here’s one we did last night:
I hope you didn’t watch it. Anyway, we thought it would be fun if other people should make a “Waltz” video as well, so we are providing the end of the song (the part in the videos) for these people to download:
We hope you don’t make one. But if you do, you may use this instructional video for guidance:
I really hope you didn’t look at that. If you need to catch up, here’s a playlist of all of the videos. Please don’t view them:
You’ll come, won’t you?
This is kind of weird :-)
Come dance with us!
Thanks to everyone who came out for our opening set at Lucky 7’s BBQ yesterday. It was our first time working with this new format and we certainly learned a lot. We had a great time! The other bands were fantastic. We played three new songs that may or may not end up on the new album that we have been working on. Hopefully we can get some video next time so we can show them to you. Or you could always just come out :-)
This Friday (July 27), we’re opening up at The Brighton Bar in Long Branch for The Thousand Pities (a band I happen to play the bass guitar in) and The Blasés. I’m really excited for this show. For one, The Brighton Bar is awesome. The band that Brandon and I formerly played in, St. Sat B, were regulars at The Brighton, so it’s going to be great playing there again (here’s a video of an entire St. Sat B set we did there about 5 years ago!). Secondly, The Blasés are fucking cool. So come see us!
Hopefully we’ll see you soon,
It’s been a while! We’ve been busy doing what every band does after releasing an album: not play any shows and immediately write another record.
Unfortunately, we’ve been informed that in order for us to “get our name out there,” we have to tell people we exist via live performance. No better place than an outdoor BBQ in Jersey City :-)
We’re kicking off the event at 2PM. It will be our first show as a trio (Brandon, Beth, and I), as we have decided to try a smaller, more focused, and mobile set for the time being so we can get around easier and play out more. The loud show will return in the future, but for now please join us on the 21st for what is certain to be an interesting performance. We’re really looking forward to it. Lots of great bands!
Here’s an interview I did back in May for a website called Pens Eye View. The article just went up yesterday: http://www.penseyeviewnew.com/pev/2012/07/10/the-static-sea/
Finally, I never posted this here, but our friend Deukyun Hwang filmed Brandon and I doing a bunch of acoustic versions of some of our songs. You can find those on our Youtube page, but for now, here’s “I Won’t Wait” from our EP:
Thanks, and talk to you soon :-)
