Tour 2014: Ireland, Germany, England

I realized I never posted any photos from the recent tour I filmed with Crowd Deterrent a month ago. We visited Ireland, Germany, and England. The full tour video should be posted later this summer. For now, here are some random photos I took on the trip.

Germany 2013

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.

Eternities – The Golden Age

Very proud and excited to announce my new band Eternities first full length The Golden Age. You can check the album out here…

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…

Punk Rock House Party Volume 2 – GERMANY

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.
