FTA rockers! We hope you all had a great summer. A big hug to all of you who came out to see us at the Highline Ballroom in NYC in August. It was nice to escape the studio for a bit. Speaking of recording, we have decided to try something new. Starting in January 2012, we will be releasing a new song every month for your listening pleasure. Writing has been going splendidly and recording is sounding MASSIVE. As a result, we hope to make all of our new songs ultra-special, not just a batch of tracks. We expect to release an official single early in the year with an accompanying video as well. How awesome is that!
Some other great news: talented filmmaker and FTA enthusiast, Daniel Kennedy, has used the track, "The Memories" from our similarly named EP for his latest short film, "Metal Gear". "The Memories" is played through the closing credits as its subject matter mirrors the plot. Even more exciting, "Metal Gear" was selected for the 2011 Williamsburg International Film Festival. FTA is fired up that our music will be a part of such a cool action film in a great venue. We promise to give you the details about the screening in late September as soon as possible. A link to "Metal Gear" will follow.
And finally, FOUR TRIPS AHEAD will be performing as part of the Meany Fest in NYC. Catch our set at The Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery between Houston and Bleecker) on Friday, October 14th at 9:45pm. Admission is $10.00. Ages 16+. Expect lots of new music and high energy as we shake off recording studio madness for the live stage. Can't wait to see you there.
