This past weekend, we headed out to North Carolina to spread the gospel of nerd rock.
This was our first time in the south promoting E FOR EVERYONE and it was really cool to meet our friends down there we didn't know we had. It's always a trip and simultaneously extremely cool to hear enthusiasm for the music from folks who you would never otherwise never know existed. May that always be fun and somebody feel free to throat punch either of us should should we ever that for granted (not too hard).
Also, that weekend marked the first time KK had ever been invited to participate in a convention "panel". For those unfamiliar with the format, it's like a class put on by the artist/writer/actor ABOUT whatever said artist is involved in. In our case, we were invited to do whatever we wanted to do.
Dangerous I know, but we pulled something out that we thought would be both informative and fun and something that would make it new for us.
We decided to go with a "VH1 Storytellers" concept and jumped in head first for a full hour of stories, laughs, and hopefully more connection between the band, fans and our music. For example.... "On And On" is more than a song about Wolverine's overworked schedule, it's also a commentary of how we go through much of our lives jumping from one distraction to the next without ever really centering ourselves.
We were a little nervous taking what people may feel is only fun and light themed music and revealing it was about much more at the same time, but sticking with honestly as policy we were rewarded with fans saying they felt closer to the music and had enjoyed the peeling of layers. It feels different talking about the KK in that context, but at the same time more fulfilling and multi-dimensional. We were thankful to the fans who came and enjoyed their time, we're looking forward to doing it again!
Check out this nice review/interview from HEROES CON with the fine folks at COMICS ALLICANCE!
While we were holding the front line in Charlotte, director Todd Downing was breaking ground beginning filming on our as-of-now no longer secret music video for "On And On". We're so excited for this and cannot wait for it to be completed after receiving emails with the first of the footage stills. Over the past 2 months, our friend JD Greene has become Logan and you're gonna smile when you see it. :)
