And for our next trick...

Many people across the US went traveling for Memorial Day weekend. I'm sure it must have been fun. While you were eating that hot dog at your family's bar-b-q, we were locked down in Alex's basement rehearsing. Yes, it was time consuming, but it was time well spent.

You will FLIP when you hear this new set! Digging into the EP songs and performing them with these all new sounds and parts has been so gratifying. They have a solid foundation now, and a renewed energy to them. I've been experimenting w/ various textures from my keys. It's like a jigsaw puzzle, and all our instruments are a piece that need to lock into the others in just the right way.

Our set has become a different beast altogether. More like a Lion now maybe.. The arrangements have all been revamped and reloaded with some awesome new parts (and interludes added in from the EP). Some old favorites are getting a face lift as well. Kiss me like u mean it is sounding really cool with a killer new synth line we added. Also, we are resurrecting an old favorite! I won't give the title away, but let me divulge that theres gonna be some booty shaking going down. No doubt.

Oh, and Alex is rocking some additions to his drum kit. There's an all new electric element going on.. Rock solid. In addition, Mike has been jamming on his Les Paul. The sonics he's producing are gigantic, thick and chunky. Super beefy, for the kids.

Basically, we are super pumped for our show at the Knit on Saturday night. It's going to be killer. Duh. Be THERE or be THERE.

We don't play shows,
We still only throw PARTIES


A Tale of Risky Business

Drum roll please... The EP is done! We worked long and hard to complete it, and it is all wrapped up. It has been a whirlwind, and at some points I thought we wouldn't be able to pull it all together. In the end we got it all done, and let me tell you it was down to the wire.

Those moment's when I thought, 'This is impossible, it will never happen' are the ones when we really banded together and got things done. We pulled together as only HONOR SOCIETY can, and delivered in a BIG way.

The music on this EP is the best we've ever created, hands down. The title of our EP is, A Tale of Risky Business, and for me it really sums everything up. The past few months have been jam packed with us growing and changing as a band, becoming stronger and more focused on what we want to accomplish. It's a risk you take to put yourself out there sometimes, but you know what they say, without risk there is no reward.

Here is a sneak peak at the track listing:

1. The Mystery of the Vanishing Girl (prologue)
2. See U In The Dark
3. And For Our Next Trick... (interlude)
4. Why Didn't I?
5. Risky Business (interlude)
6. The Takeover
7. The Haunt (epilogue)

The art for our CD wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for Andrew. He literally put it all together and made it happen.. So a big kudos to Andrew. This is the final result:

Next up we are getting back into the rehearsal arena and shedding for our upcomding EP release show on May 31st. We have some NEW surprises planned, and if all goes well a brand new song to debut! It's going to be ridiculously awesome. Duh.

Our EP is almost done!

Hello you wonderful people. We are extremely busy right now finishing up our EP. It is sounding SO HOT that I cannot even begin to describe how excited we are. It has been a crazy process and the last week has been kind of a blur. I have been back and forth from Manhattan to our studio in NJ. I have logged many hours on the NJ transit train. I can tell you exactly what the stops are from Penn Station to Seacaucus (where we transfer) to our stop in Waldwick. You have stops such as Ramsey, Ho-Ho-Kus, Ridgewood etc. etc.
Yes the last week has been super crazy, but I KNOW we have something really special for you to hear. The artwork is also really cool. I don't want to give away too much, but let me say there is a mystery novel theme to it. There may or may not be lighthouses and anchors involved as well...
So our deadline is rapidly approaching to deliver the music and artwork to the CD duplication place. There is no way to have a EP release show without EP's! Duh. Which by the way, our show is NOW on May 31st at the Knitting Factory, Main Stage. We go on at 8pm. It's going to be fun getting back on the stage again.
Anyway it's Saturday, but it could be a Thursday. Each day seems like the one before. It's crunch time, but I think sometimes the best work comes out of those situations when your up against the wall. Soon the fruits of our labor will be unleashed for everyone to enjoy. And then maybe I can relax.. for a minute at least.



In the business of business

so things are getting crazy, everything is elevating: creativity, pressure, expenses, deadlines, its alot to handle.

Things are going well right now and it's funny it sounds cliche but alot of times when i'm down, making our music makes me feel so much better. I can be stressed about so many things and we get in the studio and it all goes away. Its awesome. That's how I know we're on to something because I'm just like you guys, a music fan, and our music gives me a great feeling.

On the creative side we've already started messing with ideas for a new Gentlemen's Club and no joke we have an idea for an animated series starring us! How sick would that be!?!

anyway its Friday, go turn up HONOR SOCIETY while you're getting ready and then go have FUN!
