The Limbic System Release Recap

Well, it is done.  The Limbic System CD is now out there, and I hope whoever is listening is enjoying the songs we worked so hard on this past year.  

I would like to throw some thanks out there and quickly recap the process that was The Limbic System.

First off, Sonic 102.9.  Thanks to everyone there and in particular Dave Sawchuk.  Our selection for November band of the month really pushed this project into high gear.  We wanted to show people what we were capable of, and I feel Blue Skies really captured where we were musically and what was to come with The Limbic System.

Thanks to everyone who helped us write and record the album.  There were a lot of people involved in all aspects.  Current and former members of the band, Tim Plamondon of The Unfortunates, and Paul Smith and Christan Maslyk of Paul Smith Music were all critical in the writing and recording process.  Everyone’s input and insight really helped make these songs the best that they could be.

I would like to thank all of the media outlets that helped spread the word.  A huge thank you goes out to the ones that weren’t even contacted!  All of the radio, print, online and TV promo was a huge help and we know the release wouldn’t have been as successful without it.

Everyone involved with the release, what can I say, you guys were great!  Owen at Guru with some amazing projections while the bands were on stage!  Rend, The Gibson Block, and Hearsay were all amazing and brought so many of their friends and fans, so we thank them so much for that.  John Kennedy at The Pawn Shop knows how to throw a party!  Travis from Siiines on the soundboard did a great job, and Heather and Bryann were a huge help with our merch.

The biggest thank you has to go out to all of our friends, family and fans that came and rocked out with us!  It was the most fun we have ever had as a band and we can’t wait to do it again!

- Coltron and DBR

I’m sure you have seen this already, and probably don’t like it so much.  If not, here it is again.  

Coltron Where You Been?

Hey all,

I’m sure you have noticed my absence from social media lately. I was on a road trip with miss Heather Miske and we had a wicked awesome time!

We spent a lot of time on the road, about 3500 kms give or take and we had the chance to listen to some killer and not so killer tunes. Here are a few of the highlights:

Iron Maiden - getting tired of Number of the Beast? Give Brave New World a try. Solid, fairly new recording. One of my favorite Maiden albums.

Royal Tusk - Catchy local act! Check out their brand new EP.

Nickelback - I know they have been on a major downward spiral, but I am always impressed with Chad’s melody writing and descriptive lyrics. *brace for bashing in comments*

Tegan and Sara - I can’t get enough of their vocal harmonies. I feel silly singing along sometimes though. Haha.

Scenic Route to Alaska - I love to change it up every now and then and these guys are good at what they do!

Saliva - Who knows these guys? Back In Into Your System and Every Six Seconds were killer. Then they went lame and tried to be just some straight up southern rock band. Should have stuck with the rap rock.
