Hey party people, Lady Egress here. Yikes, 2018 is almost upon us and man has it been a crazy year. We just had our 9th year band-iversary (!) and Taylor and I have spent some time reflecting on the endless hours, sleepless nights, crazy shows, the experiences and the trials and tribulations that have gotten us to this point. Yet, this past year stands out above the rest for many reasons. Mainly, YOU!
You, our army of cronies; have been so supportive and with that support we have been able to record and produce our fourth full length album, Onward! Up A Frightening Creek. This album was by far the most important to us because there have been more than a few times these last few years that we felt like we had to push onward up many a frightening creeks. Still in the midst of all the insanity we somehow managed to play 100+ shows, buy a school bus, train a new drummer, make some music videos, tour in Europe and close out our touring season with an EPIC Halloween show in Washington D.C. opening for The Dresden Dolls! Here is some footage of the finale where EGRESS joined The Dolls on stage for this cover of Rage Against The Machine’s Killing In The Name Of – Check it……
We have two more shows of the year left and it is a doozy. We will be in New York at Brooklyn Bazaar for Amanda Palmer & Jason Webley’s New Year’s Eve Phantasmagoria! VIP tickets are already sold out and the rest will as well – so get your tickets a.s.a.p! And we will be at Roxy & Dukes in Dunellen, New Jersey on Dec. 23rd for the ~Toys For Tits Toy Drive~ This is a great event for a good cause. Bring an unwrapped gift and in exchange we will titillate you with burlesque by Vivi Noir and music by yours truly!
If you can’t make it out for New Year’s Eve and you maybe bummed that we have a very limited touring schedule for the winter, fret not! We are only gathering our resources and germinating new content for you all and we will be back to pounding pavement in the spring. In the meantime, we urge you to hop on over to our YouTube Channel and subscribe. We will be posting some new music videos, videos of our school bus conversion, rumors of a documentary are in the works, a cover song series and perhaps even a DIY series.
We also encourage you to sign up for our Newsletter (which is at the top of this post) This is the best way to get the actual (not fake) news directly from the horses arse. erm, I mean mouth. Facebook and these gigantic social media sites are constantly filtering what folks see from us and we want to be on you. By signing up for our newsletters you hear from us directly and you hear it first.
Well friends, my time is up for now. Thanks for hanging with me for a little time-out during your day. Let’s keep it weird and rollin’!
Onward & Cheers!
Lady E & those darn EGRESS kids
