Firstly, we will begin recording our second full length album early next month at Buffalo's Mammoth Recording Studio. The album which is titled Being Chased By Phantoms promises to be our most ambitious effort to date. I could spend three hundred or so words describing it here but that really wouldn't do much good would it? At any rate, we have an equally ambitious plan for its release which will be unlike anything seen recently. More details to follow, likely looking at a Spring or Late-Winter release.
Secondly, as we are on break to record we will also be finishing up ou...
Motionless has been out for a few months now and we've gotten a few reviews, you will find them below. We've decided to celebrate our newfound popularity on YouTube by putting our album up there in it's entirety free of charge.
You can find that here... https://youtu.be/Za9DFtXdkAw
Meanwhile... if you'd prefer a review to give you an idea of what to expect you can find those right here...
Winter, as should be expected in Buffalo, was turbulent. What was supposed to be our album release show ended up getting canceled by a blizzard. Stuff happens, a few updates:
At any rate we returned to the stage with Pollock and A Fitting Revenge from Rochester at the Rockin Buffalo in February and we've got a show upcoming at Goodbar on Elmwood, poster below. We will be joined by Ray and the Roaches and Jailbird Joey featuring friend-of-the-band Neil Stoll on drums.
In other exciting news we have begun recording our follow up to 'Motionless' an EP we will be titling "LEAVE", yes... all caps. We are recording with BD...
We've got a whole mess of updates to provide you with as this year draws to a close.
Firstly, we are delighted to announce that we will have both physical copies of our debut album as well as distribution on Spotify and iTunes by our next show on January 19th.
Speaking of which...
We will have a feature spot upstairs at Mr. Goodbar where we will be joined by our friends in Over and Out and Chelseigh. This night will be extra special as Jon Rizzo, synthesizer extraordinaire, will be sitting in with us for the set. Details are on the poster!
With our last show of the fall now behind us our attentions turn toward infrastructure! Firstly, a big thanks to Rude Boyz Artworks and AlLWNY fro hosting our show earlier this month. Special thanks to The Scarecrow Show, Exham Priory and The Russian White who drove in from PA to join us.
Now. Looking ahead...
We've wrapped recording on our debut album 'Motionless' and we are waist-deep into the process of mixing and mastering it. So, assuming the stars are aligned correctly, we will be releasing it before the year is out. Obviously the website will be updated to reflect that when the time comes so just sit tight.
The leaves have begun changing color and the last of the summer heat has faded. With the changing seasons come a couple of brief updates. Firstly, we're now on Twitter and can be found @TMWBuffalo. So feel free to head over there for anything you can't get over here. Total coverage, that's what we're after.
Anyways. Our next show will be at Rudeboyz Artworks 418 W Ferry St, Buffalo, NY 14213 on October 20th. The doors are at five, so it will be fairly early as far as our shows are concerned.
in the meantime, here is a quick video we fired out during rehearsal this week.
Youtube is great unless you have to upload something. When you find yourself staring at 352MB/1.54GB for twenty minutes, unsure of whether or not the progress bar has actually moved... Well... that is when you have found a special kind of hell.
Before we get too far into the details The Missing Worker would like to thank Buffalo Infringement Festival for providing us with several opportunities to bring our sound to a number of different settings. These shows are always the highlight of our Summer and give us the chance to do strange things in strange spaces.
As is custom for us we will be taking most of the Fall and Winter off for the purpose of writing and recording new material. A bit of outstanding news on that front. Firstly, we are pleased to announce that our debut album 'Motionless...' will be published sometime in October. More specific details as the...
We will be playing three shows this summer, as always it isn't the quantity but the quality. To that end we will be debuting our 15-minute progressive rock-opera "Birth of an Idea" on July 27th before reprising it a week later for Progfest 2018. Accompanying the music will be a series of videos which have been carefully curated for the performance. Details Below:
