Two new videos, SURPRISE GUESTS on NOV22ND.

We just learned that there are going to be some VERY special guests performing at the gig this Saturday! Hopefully I will be able to announce who they are very soon, but I can say that they are TWO high profile bands from overseas! That’s all I can say for now. That means there will be SEVEN ass-kicking bands for SEVEN bucks. You WILL get your money on Saturday November 22nd over at Chasers in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Strand will hit the stage a little earlier in the evening… we think it might be around 10pm, more accurate info soon.

Shirts Shows and Pixorz

Hi,

Firstly we finished our second pressing of T-Shirts, with a more detailed Steampunk design. Have a look and find your size over at Strandland.com. We also have a different illustrated design that should be issued next month.

I’ve also uploaded HUNDREDS of new pictures to our Strandland.com site in the GIGS section.

And lastly we’re really happy to play a classic gig at a trusted venue on November 22nd at Chasers in Scottsdale with none other than Ikonoklast, Hardwire, American Gods and Premeditated Light!

As a side note, I’ve been staying up until the sun comes up workin on some new club stompin, angsty, industrial tunes.

THANKS TO OSCILLATION 2008:
Our gig at this year’s Oscillation festival was superb! The crowd was intense, and the energy was amazing. We couldn’t have asked for more! Many thanks to those involved and all the other great bands we rocked along side.
