The recording of our third album has already begun, and so far the results have been positive. Drums and bass are finished, so now it’s just guitars, vocals, and more guitars. We’re also getting some help from our non-MB&B musician friends, as we hope to incorporate some piano, organ, accordian, and horns on our next record. Assuming all continues to go well, we’re looking at a full-length record with 13 brand new Mud, Blood & Beer tracks. We’re confident that this is going to be our best record yet, and we hope to have it our before year-end.
In other news, we’re coming back to NYC’s famed Rodeo Bar in a few weeks. We’re playing Tuesday, July 3, so with everyone having the next day off we’re expecting it to be a serious all-night party. We go on at 8:30 and we play to midnight. Admission is FREE. We’re going to round out our set with a handful of cover songs, so it should be a fun show, unless you’re some sissy who doesn’t love eating BBQ while having his face simultaneously melted with the full force of Mud, Blood & Beer-style rock & roll.
And finally, we’re sad to see the Lakeside Lounge come to an end and close its doors last month. We played our very first gig there five years ago, and we played there as recently as a few weeks ago. It was always a fun place to play, as it had a low-key vibe and they always treated bands with respect. With NYC constantly changing, it’s getting harder and harder to find cool places like that are supportive of original live music. The Lakeside was always cool, and it was always fun. Thanks for the memories, and so many great years of drinking, fun, and rock & roll.
And one last note, our awesome MB&B t-shirts are almost sold out, so order now if you want one. And if you do order now, we’ll throw in a free copy of our latest CD, Gone for Good. Check out our swag page for details.
