I have a big announcement to make. This morning, I got a call and found out that I am now officially the drummer for the band SCARS LIKE THESE!
There is a lot to the story before all that even happened.
This last week had to be the craziest week I’ve had in a long time. Besides the overtime hours at the regular job, I was looking for a bassist to see if Terminal Frost could get back together. This guy hit me up, and he sounded like he really wanted to be in a serious band. So I talked to Ryan and he wanted to see if we could set up a jam session for the guy. While that was going, I got a message from Tommy Scars from the band Scars Like These. We opened up for them when we had that show back in October (as you can see below).
They fired their drummer, and then they had a fill-in drummer. The fill-in couldn’t make it to the shows they had coming up. Me being without an official band other than fun-at-home stuff like MoonCandle, I decided to take him up on the audition.
Last night, I auditioned for them, and I caught on pretty quick to the songs I remembered in my head. Keep in mind I only started listening to their setlist THAT day. Of course, I wasn’t on point entirely, but close enough that they liked my style.
Today I found out, and I am extremely excited. They may not be metal, but they are a Hard Rock band that clearly influenced by old school Punk and early Heavy Metal. Its going to be great because they are a serious band that does play shows, and they play a lot. This is what I’ve needed for a long time.
Being busy with this new band, I still hope to update this blog, but it won’t be easy. I still have a lot of writings to put up here, too.
So keep checking back, it’s gonna get interesting !
