I’m auctioning off the original drawing together with a copy of the 7″ donated by weemptyrooms.com – Record Label & Screen Printing - All proceeds of the auction will be donated to Safe Steps Family Violence Response Centre which is a Victorian based not for profit organisation that provides help for women and children experiencing domestic violence http://www.safesteps.org.au 
This will be a silent auction via my email – jaceartyfarty@gmail.com – please email bids and I will post updates as regularly as I can. If you’re not interested in bidding please share this post around so we can raise as much money as possible. I’ll keep this open until Monday 22nd of Dec – Thanks, Jace

Captains Of Industry LP

Greetings head bangers, mods, skins, rastas, liberal voters…..just joking!

We are stoked to announce our new LP “Captains Of Industry” is ready for pre order on vinyl and CD, and for digital purchase.

You can check it out here: http://weemptyrooms.bandcamp.com/album/captains-of-industry

Recorded last year in LA with Toshi Kasai, (look him up if you don’t know his work) this album documents our rise and fall in the cut throat world of corporate finance. Though these events never took place it’s a stern reminder to take care of one another above all else.

DEAD/Vaz (USA) Split 7″

 

Hi everyone, well I have 2 things to announce…..firstly IT RAINED IN CASTLEMAINE!!!!! Secondly you can now pre order the DEAD/Vaz split 7″

VAZ/DEAD SPLIT 7″ (Wantage/We Empty Rooms)
At some point in 2012 the Australian band Dead hosted Fargo/Moorehead/New York group Vaz for a tour of their continent. The members of Vaz had been in some other bands (notably, Hammerhead) and so had Dead’s members (Inappropriate Tough Guy Behaviour, Fire Witch). The tour was nice where the swimming and tunes were concerned. Commercially it failed. The bands toured Malaysia, had amazing curry and parted ways. This 7″ is the commemorative oversized-foam-hand-with-index-finger-pointed-skyward … if you follow, of those tours. It offers up two of our favorite bands of the past 5 or so years, in all their desperate, excellent glory. Dead is a two-piece with a vibe owing to the much-abused “90s,” “Amrep” and “noise rock” descriptors. We think its more like a vegan, southern hemisphere Motörhead, though. Vaz is Apollo Liftoff and Jeff Mooridian’s new, post Hammerhead groups, ca. 1999. Vaz has existed much longer now than Hammerhead ever did, but that’s the reference point most used. To us, Vaz offer up Cold War paranoiac space rock. Desperate, fast, deftly-played and riffy without pandering to anything that could be called “stoner.”

Split label release between WeEmptyRooms and Wantage USA. Total of 313 copies.
Black 7″ records housed in a letter pressed envelope printed by the D.E DuVall Co. in Philly.
100 on kraft stock (mail order or from the band only), 213 on silver/grey.
Double sided screen printed insert printed by WER.

DEAD/Cyberne Tour Done N Dusted

The Cyberne/DEAD tour is now over and it was a fucking corker. And it looks like every city won an award. These are highly coveted in the music industry:

Sydney: Most chunders in the dunnies before the show even started. Go easy folks!

Moruya/Leeton: Equal tie for greatest hospitality.

Canberra: Greatest crowd enthusiasm to size ratio.

Melbourne: Lowest attendance (home town pride)

Castlemaine: Best dancers, best food AND a green room!

Adelaide: In a landslide victory took out the crown for least amount of punters willing to pay any more than $10 entry.

Geelong: In another landslide they took out craziest audience within the first 30 seconds.

I think we played with more killer local bands on this tour than any before. We are very lucky to be able to do this. And of course there are countless people who helped make the tour happen.
And to anyone who came to a show, bought a t-shirt or something thank you very much. We hope we can bring these guys back out again sometime, they are truly a world class live band.

Thank you SO much to all the folks who helped us out in so many ways on the tour!!!!!!!!!!!

 

US Tour – Thank You, We Had A Blast!

So our August US tour was incredible! We did 16 awesome shows and capped it off by recording a new album with Toshi Kasai in LA.

There are so many people to thank!
In particular Josh Harteis, Josh Vanek, Marty, Kari and all the Total Fest crew.
Josh from Eolian Empire for the being awesome and releasing our LP in such a hands on killer way.
All the guys from The Funeral And The Twilight from Minneapolis, and Towers from Portland. We toured with both these bands, they are amazing musicians and great men.
The organisers of Whynot Fest in Minot, ND. You all rule! The Mr Dad guys…thank you!
There are so many others who put us up, fed us, took photos etc……thanks EVERYONE!

We are still mixing the new recording, not sure when it will be out at this stage it’s going to be a slow process.

In the meantime you can download a compilation of 15 of the best bands we met on tour in the US this year all gathered together in one convenient digital location for your FREE listening pleasure.
