Posts Tagged ‘Of Mice & Men’

Just read this on Indie Star (which is a awesome blog, http://www.indiestar.tv/) that the new Of Mice & Men album The Flood is the FASTEST selling album in Rise Records history! So stoked on that, these boys deserve it fully. Been a fan since their first release but kinda let it slide but had a good listen to The Flood and I fucking LOVE IT! Such a good album and so far is my album of the year, so anyone into this type of music should check it out and pick up a copy because its well worth the purchase.

Well its safe to say that I haven’t given this blog any attention what so ever in awhile, so I thought it would be a good idea to give it a mass update on all things LIFE!

First up, last weekened was my second show for Black & Red Entertainment, it was at Zeal West, Henderson, Auckland and had a pretty decent turnout of 100 people in the main room, which based on the feedback I got from the bands that played was good vibes which is allways good to hear 😀 So currently in the works for another one up there in Sep/Oct, unsure on the details at the moment, will post more once I get it sussed.

Another big thing was that I moved back down to my hometown of Tauranga, mainly for two good reasons… Something pretty big came up in my family and id just like to be around family for awhile and the other is to safe money for uni next year in Auckland, so im only in Tauranga for around six months which I dont mine at all.

Music wise ive just been listening to the new releases of Skrillex, Foreign Beggars, Feed Me, Of Mice & Men and a few other random songs which are all killer releases by the way. I really REALLY love the new Of Mice & Men album, such a good step up from their old album and I really love the soft tracks and the fact that there is more singing on the album than the previous, just makes it alot more fresh sounding that the last release!

Last but not least ive got some video stuff that ive got to start editing together for my uni portfolio which submissions begin in September I think, so hopefully those turnout well and the people im doing it for dig it.

Ill start posting “interesting” things more often now and keep the blog more active with updates and cool things.

❤ Will.

Im going to start tagging my update posts with numbers now since it will be easier to track and what not.
So last time I posted ive just been trying to get some B&R stuff orginised, if these plans do come alive then it will be huge for me and the B&R name so hopefully something comes of it.

There has been a tour announcement in AUS in MAY which is called the Destroy Music Tour which is such a beastly lineup consisting of The Amity Affliction, I Killed The Prom Queen, Deez Nuts & Of Mice & Men. Im seriously thinking about heading over to one of the shows since ive allways been a big fan of IKTPQ and now that they have Jamie Hope as singer (picture below), im sure it would be a awesome show.

Also ive been thinking about study opitions for next year, I think at this point in time ill be going to AUT for a BCT, Bachelor In Creative Technologies and major in Moving Image since ive allways had an interest in editing and presenting video projects to people, so I think that would be awesome to do.

So until update #2, PEACE!
