There is finally a new Thanatos song for your perusal. The acoustic version of the song, Coyote in the Graveyard, is up for your perusal. If you pledged to the Kickstarter please send me a note via Kickstarter and I will send you a code to download it free.
It is $1.50 for the rest of you but you can listen to it free of course.
I will, in a few days, put up way for you to pre-order a physical copy of the CD (which will be very limited...after the kickstarter and some freebies? I think I will have maybe 50 for sale).
Let me know what you think. This was an attempt to get back to the first Thanatos LP....
So Michael Holcombe put together this wonderful version of the song "Rain." I wanted to share it with all of you.
It also got me thinking? If you want? Do your own covers of Thanatos songs and I will post them here. If I can help with the music? Give me a holler. Sometimes it takes me a bit to get back so be patient.
We played well. The venue was great, the staff was great and the other bands were awesome. I made a very wise decision playing before rather than after Tim Larson and Ryan Durdin because they rocked. Thanks to William Faith and Eric Polccyn for playing with Thanatos.
Thanks to Shimmer DJs, Philly Peroxide and Scary Lady Sarah. I hope Shimmer finds a permanent home to spin shoegaze in Chicago once a month soon (cause I need a place to hang out).
But lordy...really thanks to the folks who came out. I cannot imagine doing another show? I love playing, love working on music but I just can't deal with some of the more mundane aspects of it (one being...well honestly, though there were MORE in the room..24 people PAID to get in...so the net pay for three bands and 2 DJs was $18). Why would the venue book a "main act" that cannot draw more than that? Hell I sure as HELL won't ask anyone to again--that I assure you.
If I promised a record release show for Coyote in the Graveyard? I will find a way to do it or if someone else I like asks me to play on their bill? Possible...but really? I think this is pretty much it....and a fun, fun way for it to BE that!
A few years back Tim Larson and I, in one night, recorded the three song digital only Christmas "EP," A Very Thanatos Christmas....It was up on this site but you couldn't download it. Now, due to the magic that is Bandcamp? You can download it--for free.
I sing, I think I play some guitars...Tim plays guitars, mandolin, steel guitar and sings too. Feel free to spread it around and Happy Holidays.
Maybe I should add a Christmas song to the list for the show in Chicago on December 18?
The schedule for this goes about like this...First band starts at 8:15 (Binary Parthers). Thanatos will go on 9:30 to be followed by Tim Larson. The whole thing will be fairly early except the DJs will keep spinning until they kick everyone out!
Thanatos will be playing yet another rarrrre show --Wednesday December 18 at Door No. 3 (Double Door's little brother) $7. Doors are at 8 p.m. The show features Binary Partners, Tim Larson and Shimmer DJs Scary Lady Sarah and Philly Peroxide.
This will be a Thanatos band show focusing on the first Thanatos LP, This Endless Night Inside . This year is the 20th anniversary of the LP's release and I just did an acoustic show in New York. This will be the only remaining show celebrating the anniversary.
Long-time Thanatos member Eric Polcyn will play along with Tim Larson and special guest guitarist, William Faith. Although I am not really sure what everyone will be playing just yet. No other shows are planned but we have some more news coming very very soon.
