viva la In On The Chase!

Last night was spent sat in an empty pub watching In On The Chase rehearse for upcoming shows, brain storming video ideas, and smoking a lot of cigarettes considering the short amount of time we were there...
I am getting a little worried about this music video though, as I had my heart set on doing a live music video & they've got literally no shows lined up... I was hoping to have a video done in time for uni interviews etc so I could put it as part of my portfolio, but for that to happen I'll have to try and come up with a completely different idea. I'm getting far too stressed and worked up about this video, but I'm determined to make something great!
As for the rehearsal itself, I cannot begin to explain how excited I am for every one to hear the new stuff I heard last night! I was amazed the first time I heard it- then got told that was the first time it'd been played the whole way through? My jaw may aswell have hit the floor...

Although I do have footage of their amazing new stuff, I don't wanna show any one til they've agreed to release it! So here's a video of them faffing about basically... and evidence of why Robby shouldn't do vocals!

RIP Ruins Of Earth!

Sunday 8th January 2012. End of an era and all that. Ruins Of Earth played their last ever show at The George to a RIDICULOUS crowd.

This metal as fuck all dayer began at 2, although I couldn't tell you who played before 4 as it was only at that time I decided I felt safe enough to venture away from my bed after a beyond heavy night of drinking the night before. Thankfully I turned up to the show just as my friends in 'Within Her Depth' played. I'm pleased to say that from what I heard & saw on the new screens they've installed (bloody brilliant idea by the way, because it's a narrow and long venue it means you can see what's cracking on stage if you're not man enough to brave the inevitable pits at the front) that it was their best set not only for crowd reactions but also for the tightness of the set.

From that point on I'm sad to say I didn't pay much attention to the bands until Ruins played because I felt like death warmed up. But MY GOD Ruins Of Earth were absolutely fucking incredible. The crowd went mental, the pits were deadly and at one point Collin refuse to do anything until the stage was over run with people and there were people hanging upside down from the ceiling. It was mind blowing!
