First off, I am happy to report that Dave and Kelly’s baby was born October 25th, 2012. She’s very healthy and at the time of this posting 1 month old! You can read more about her Dave Strand’s facebook, or also Dave and Kelly made a baby blog where they talk about baby stuff and post pictures.Also, thanks to everyone who made it out to Nightmare on Main Street. I think it’s safe to say that it was the most attended Strand show. I mean, it was a block party with The Strand, Hardwire, Letz Massacre, and Combichrist! I think over 3000 people were in attendance. My band mates were kind enough to take care of all of the setup, and I was able to just rush onto stage, play the gig, and then head back to my 2 day old baby! What a diva, I’ve become.Also, yesterday I posted a bunch of live footage of The Strand from our 2012 CD release party at Chasers in AZ. I put two versions of six different songs online. Live audio versions, and versions with the original song mixed ontop of the live audio. They are posted at our Youtube Channel. Share it out if you want to spread the word. This was our last gig with Bryon, and an awesome time. Thanks to all who were there for bringing great energy.
Had our first band practice with Elias Lewter on drums, and it was pretty awesome. Dude can rock out for sure. Now the task of dividing up his parts among the existing keyboard players. They seem to be up to the challenge, so rock on. A few more practices and we’ll have the songs dialed in for the gig on October 27th with Combichrist, Komor Kommando, Hardwire and The Strand at Nightmare on Main Street! It’s gunna be a huge event, with a lot of beer vendors, out door block party vibe, and I saw this promo video for it a couple days ago. Swing by the facebook page linked above and proudly state your attendance!
