Downpour went to Germany earlier this year to film Crowd Deterrent’s week long tour. After a lot of editing I finally have the finished project ready to roll. It’s a bit long clocking in at fifty some minutes, but I think it sums the trip up pretty well. I met a lot of great people over there and couldn’t have had a better time.
Been real busy as of late. Here’s a quick thing I finished up for Foul Spirits. A couple Halloween concert posters. More work coming soon!
Very proud and excited to announce my new band Eternities first full length The Golden Age. You can check the album out here… www.eternities.bandcamp.com
This is my first time on an album not doing vocals, (I’m playing the drums) and it was a sort of nice relief. I miss doing some vocals but am having a lot of fun hitting some drums. Give it a listen. We’ve gotten comparisons to Deftones, Isis, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails, Thrice, Pink Floyd, you name it…
Downpour contributed to the new Annabel video. Check it out below.
So this year has been extremely busy. One reason, a little bit of traveling.
I headed to Germany with Crowd Deterrent for a little over a week. While filming the documentary we also filmed a Punk Rock House Party at a flat in Germany.
The concert might not look like it’s a house but I assure you we were definitely in someone’s house. They were throwing a party for all the Crowd Deterrent dudes. The show was really good, and the after party was… strange. Hallways packed with people hanging out, strange dance parties in bedrooms with glow sticks, and lots of Kabobs. Anyway, you can check out the night below.
I love the new Worship This! song and video. Great job on all accounts.
