Static Era Insider #3

Hey guys!

Well, it turns out I’m not the best at doing this weekly (haha), but that’s because so much has been going on!!

In between writing new songs – we’ve got about five new ones that we’ll be unleashing soon!! – we’ve been busy looking for a new bassist. AND WE’VE FOUND HIM!!! Hailing from my home town of Hamilton, we’re stoked to have Vic Pesch join our line up. He drinks beer, washes daily and plays a MAD bass! We’re super looking forward to introducing him to you all – and what better way to do that than to PLAY ANOTHER SHOW!!!

…. Which conveniently leads me to our next piece of news: our next show is all on at The Rising Sun (373 K Rd, Auckland) on August 24 with rockers These Automatic Changers. You may remember these guys from back in March, when we supported them at Juice Bar. They’re awesome – it will be a rad show! So keep Friday August 24 free and come party with us at The Rising Sun!

Lastly, but excitingly, our next music video is getting filmed this weekend! We’ve enlisted the services of Sakowski Studios to film the music video for “Weakness” (our soon to be released next single), and it’s all on this Sunday! Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page to get updates about the release date, but we’re VERY excited, and can’t wait to show you the final product!

Rock and ROLL!!

Hey dudes and dudettes!

Hope you’ve had a brilliant couple of weeks! I meant to get another blog in last week, but for some mysterious internet phantom reason, the website was down – hope you didn’t miss us too much!

The last two weeks have been full of writing for me – I think I have a songwriting flu. Serious business really. Haha. The newest song I’ve written is about rocking out with all of you guys! So, my question to you is: What do you do when you’re rocking out? Whether it’s at a concert or gig, or just playing air guitar in your bedroom until your partner walks in and busts you doing a Tom Cruise, like in Risky Business. Personally, I love nothing more than being in the front row of a concert and going hard – though, I always get a ridiculously sore neck after moshing!

Dave and I also headed to York St Studio last Sunday to record the drums for our next single! We’re narrowing down the choices for songs for the next EP too, and, just quietly, it’s going to be hella rock! BRING IT ON!!!

If you haven’t yet heard “The Start” EP, don’t forget it’s available on iTunes now (http://itunes.apple.com/nz/album/the-start-ep/id529440435) – AND on Spotify! open.spotify.com/album/2fJ01GK5nuBeFWzFdNxe5D – if you haven’t yet checked out Spotify, do it. It’s awesome!

Anywho, that’s it from me this week – short and sweet! If you have any questions, as always, just give us a yell either by commenting on this post, or on our facebook page: www.facebook.com/staticera

Have a gnarly week!

Hey guys!

So, we’ve decided to start doing a bit of a blog each week (hopefully) to let you guys know more about what we’ve been up to over the week, what’s coming up and really just tell you a bit more about who we are.

If you ever have any questions about us, what our thoughts are on something, or just want to get to know us better, drop us a line, or ask us a question on our facebook page, and we’ll get right on to it for you 😀

These last few weeks have been HECTIC, with the release of the EP and the video for “So Sore”, we’ve been going hard nuts organizing the EP and video release gig, talking to tv and radio about “So Sore”, and planning our next EP! If you didn’t make it along to the EP release gig though, don’t worry because we still have copies available. You can email us at info@staticera.com to order your hard copy ($10 + postage) OR you can head to itunes and download it from there! Awesome! Just quietly, I’m quite bloody excited about being on itunes. I don’t know, maybe it’s the idea of having the boys as my ringtone? Haha. Check it out at http://itunes.apple.com/nz/album/the-start-ep/id529440435

Other exciting news is that So Sore is going on national television baby! I’m going to be on TVNZ U (which is on Freeview channel 6, or Sky channel 16) tomorrow (that’s Saturday) afternoon at 5.30pm chatting to the crew about the So Sore video, the EP and… well, rock and roll really! If you have anything you’d like me to talk about specifically, let me know on our facebook page, and I’ll hopefully be able to sneak it in! The video for So Sore is also going to be debuted on C4’s “HomeGrown” on Tuesday night at 10pm. Check it out!

Apart from that, this week’s been a bit of a blur for us all really – winter’s really started setting in, and I’ve been battling off a cold for a few days now. If you have any good winter remedies, I’d love to hear them. Although listening to Halestorm has definitely helped to lift my spirits! It even inspired a new song that I’ve started writing called “Good Girls Finish Last” – we all need a bit of bad girl sometimes! Haha.

See you all on TVNZ U tomorrow! \m/
