    Re: If you like local music ...

    Could you give a list of some bands that inspire you guys so we have an idea what we are getting into? Some people cannot listen at work. If you like the Clash, Zeppelin and the Who, I may show up. If you emulate Slipknot or Megadeath, I probably might not show up.

    Smart to get the word out there though. The key is to keep hustling, if you love doing what you do, sell out and go after it. Ignore the people questioning what you are up to, most people can't stand to see people chasing after their dreams. Even if you don't make it huge, you should have a great time, and have some nice memories for later.

    I love how everyone is looking away from the camera. It reminds me of that episode of southpark where they start a Christian rock band. LOL

    You won't hear any slipknot or any other screaming like that. For myself, i'm a HUGE Foo Fighters fan(dave grohl in general). But we have a mix of rock and some slight punk influences. Some Blink 182 style, along with some Angels and Airwaves sounds in other songs. I'm big into your more rock sounds, and i'm huge into 'classic" rock.

    We try to write songs that just have energy to them and have a good melody and all that. We've finally kinda found our sound with the 3 songs on that site i listed.

    I agree that it's a good shot. I'd like to see more face from the person in the back on the left. And the hand placement of him and the guy on the far right are a bit odd.

    But otherwise, the composition is pretty good.

    You mean, The Edge's delay effx :)

    I do like A&A, though. Because it blends some Blink pace with melodic overtones and delay effx.

    What do you guys use? I have a Boss DD20 that I kick around in my basement.

    Yours and the guy in the middle are the two poses I liked the most.

    Although, you standing in front of the street sign makes it look like you have an arrow on your hip.
