Season's Greetings! (and a few announcements)

December 31, 2012

Hello Madeira friends!

Double Crown Postcard

We hope you are greatly enjoying the holidays, and your stockings are overflowing with surf CDs! We wanted to give you one final update for the year, as there are a few items worth noting. First, we will be playing the Punk Rock Night at the Melody Inn in Indy for the first time ever on Saturday, January 12th. It'll actually be more like a Surf-Punk Night, as we'll be playing with our friends Team Void from Dayton, OH, as well as two other surf(y) bands. We very much hope you''ll be able to join us for that show, and kick those January blues with some hot surf/punk music!

Second, we were thrilled to find out that El Sotano, the weekly surf music show on Spanish National Radio hosted by Diego R.J., selected our song "Tribal Fury" as #3 of the best 20 surf tracks of 2012! Thank you very much, Diego! You can hear the show online - check it out!

Third, we are happy to announce that our good friends at Surfabilly Freakout Radio in Champaign, IL, just released a fantastic new compilation CD "Throttlebilly Beach Riot!", chock full of surf, rockabilly, psychobilly, garage and more - and among these 20 tracks of doom is our own "Burning Mirage"! Thanks to Jet Sterling, Chelsea Bandita, Koffin Keith, Motorhead Mike, and all the rest of the Surfabilly crew for doing us the honor of including us among all the great bands, the Nebulas, Daikaiju, the Cocktail Preachers, the Love Me Nots, Knuckel Drager, the Men from S.P.E.C.T.R.E., Vegas 66, etc. We also greatly appreciate all your support through the years! Learn more about the CD - or simply order it for ONLY $10, here.

Finally, we thought we'd mention that we will be starting to work on some new songs again (hopefully for the next CD) at our next practice in less than two weeks! With Tribal Fires now almost a year old, we figure it's time... We hope to unveil the new songs at our upcoming shows, and we've got some great ones planned for the next six months, with return visits to Ohio, North Carolina, and hopefully Michigan (working on those right now). Keep checking our shows calendar, and hope to see you at one of them. Until then, we wish you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!
