fragments of god - new record, single, video, show

fragments of god is an experiment putting a number of local band veterans\record nerds together without pretense of what the outcome will be. if we were the music press we'd probably use such classic nonesensical words as krauty, shoegazy, gothy and trippy... why not take a spin and make your own mind...

the record was recorded with mikey allred at dark art audio where he's recorded records for the likes of interarma, hellbender, across tundras, and yautja just to name a few. produced by devin lamp (ascent of everest, evil bebos) with additional audio sorcery perpetrated at meltface studios the record features: an explosion of animalistic drumming on the part of siri dev (pujol, badcop), gothy driving distorted bass from mikey owen (little viking, badcop), a wash of shimming and screaming guitars from brandon highfill (noi, antarctica), and acid mother temple\spacemen3 inspired synths with surreal spacey vocals from devin lamp.

SEPT 25 - 5 Spot - Ascent Tour Kick Off Show

Ascent of Everest tour kick off show with Parlour, NOI, and Queen Hen was totally sweet. Thanks so much to everyone that came out! Sorry that the show started late and those of you that have to work mondays had to leave early. We'll make sure to not get double booked with creepy drawing club meetings in the future (if anyone knows whats up with that i'm really curious).

if anyone else has any pictures from the night send them our way!

Queen Hen opened up the night with tough as nails tones and fearsome riffagry (yes i think i made up that word and definitely didn't spell it right). I had no idea that Ashley could shred so hard on the bass, maybe AOE can finally do that cover of big bottom by spinal tap now. they did a sweet sonic youth cover toooo.

NOI's new jams with the double drummers and keyboard action were waaay cool i'm really excited about the new direction their band is taking and hope to play with them again soon. 

The new Parlour line up was fantastic, complete with awesome synths and rad guitar tones they did awesome versions of a bunch of favorites from the new record. Really excited about playing with them again Thursday!

Ascent of Everest got a chance to play songs off every record we have out right now, complete with some new original video. We've been experimenting with tempo and event syncing of the video as well and i think that it went off great and i'm feeling encouraged about stepping it up even further with the next show!

that's all for now stay tuned, i'm hoping we'll be updating this blog regularly as the tour unfolds
