Holy crap.

(No, I'm not high, but I squint pretty much all the time)

Band update, while I'm here:

- currently writing our next full length record, we record Feb/March
- way more touring already lined up for this year
- video for "references to the dead" from our EP "Dragging Hell" coming soon!

Thanks guys!

I found out I've been on the cusp of "too quiet" at band practices (say what?!) as our producer sat with us Wednesday night and asked me to turn up. Gizmo is now at 8, and every time I step on my micro amp I wonder if I'll blow something haha. It may get that 6550 mod sooner rather than later!

Awesome, J, love to see some success happening around here.

So, going to ask a maybe non-polite question, no answer required. But when a large manufacturer sponsors, is it strictly gear + whatever views their linking you brings? Or do they put some money on the table too to help with (whatever, touring, recording, LIVING, etc.) costs?

@keto, I know we get a discount, backline for overseas touring, and promotion. They posted when we announced our signing, and we're hoping they will post the music video as well.

Yup. His was modded before he traded for it, and I bet it's at 200W with those 6550's. He's on 4, I'm on 8. I'm also very glad I didn't cheap on new tubes, since they seem to be going strong.

@iaresee I had the perk of joining after that deal was already established. This is not to say that I'm not working my ass off now haha.

Well, you know who else does artist affiliation deals? It just takes one to legitimize you and the rest won't bat an eye if you ask.
