downloadAs of today, A Martyr’s Oath and Raven Faith Records has decided that it would be best for AMO to step down as a featured artist with their label. It was a lot of fun working with Kelly over at RFR. We are still on fantastic terms and the decision was a mutual agreement. There is even talk of me still doing graphic design for them here and there in the future when needed to help some of the more DIY artists on the label.

Although this change has occurred, the EP, Ignorance is Woe, can still be found for free on Bandcamp.

I haven’t posted anything in a little bit, so I thought I would throw together a real quick update for anyone out there that may be wondering where I’ve been lately.

Move. Cardboard boxes and cleaning things for moving into a new home

I have some big changes happening. The family just got a new house and we are spending the coming months moving into the new house while also working toward putting my current house on the market. With that, the studio and the recording projects have taken a bit of a back seat until things settle down a bit. In the meanwhile, I will say… I’ve managed to crank out about 8 or 9 really solid song ideas in the studio since the release of my last project, Ignorance is Woe, with DIY Iowa based record label, Raven Faith Records.

Once we get totally moved and settled in I’ll be back to working on songs. Once I am totally settled in my hope is to find a few people to record with so that A Martyr’s Oath adds a little more flair to it!

Now that the Ignorance is Woe EP has been available for two weeks, I think it’s time for a Central Texas Starbuck Poster Promo Tour!!!

These flyers have gotten sent out to about 10 different States, an equal part to the northern and southern States. With that, I have decided it is time to spread out the rest of them locally. There are a few places, like local venues are hipster restaurants. But, the primary spot that we all know will always have the so called “community board” is going to be Starbucks.

Other than this promo push that I plan to do all at once on a single day very soon… I plan to take a step back from sending out flyers. I’ve been thinking about whether or not if I should put together some band merch; things like an epic deathcore shirt or a band logo sticker. I might… I might not.

Either way, once the Starbucks flyer flood happens, I will post on how it went.

Just for fun while relaxing this afternoon I thought I would mess around a bit with Photoshop. I snatched a few of the band promos from the new label that I am with, Raven Faith Records, and put together a before and after. I’m no expert, but I think the after images have a cleaner, smoother look. The first one is from a band called Rival Empire. The second is from Outside the Shadows. The second one was a little hard to clean up because it had a gradient type of affect already on the photo. Regardless, you should check OTS out. They have a new release coming up in a few weeks or so.
