PANIC!!!


what's today? anybody? that's right...february 11, 2011. the crazy thing about my blog is that it does not lie...especially about the date. it knows where. it knows when. it can usually even tell me who and how. so as i look back at this post and this post i realize that the title to THIS post seems a bit odd. because it's almost two years later!!!!

but alas, it is true. for those of you that don't know, east of western is the band i play drums in. yes drums! and our new record, PANIC is coming out on march 18. you can hear a preview here but if you're really feeling eager, you can hear the entire album (well, at least the songs that we put on the set list) AND get your hands on your very own copy on march 18 at cafe du nord in san francisco. you can buy tickets for the show here.  unfortunately for all of our 12 year old fans, this show is for people 21 years old and up.  BUT, i do have some good news for all the 12 year olds AND those of you that aren't patient enough to wait until march 18. leave a comment down below (remember to leave your email address in the comment form) telling me how excited you are about PANIC and the person that leaves the 200th comment will receive a FREE autographed copy of both east of western's debut record AND our new record PANIC before you can buy it. are you down with that? yes, i said 200th comment, so you need to send this to all your friends so they can fill up the other 199 comments.

this is really serious business folks....the band is in training...getting into fighting shape. we're even rehearsing! here are some shots i took from rehearsal the other night.





ok...let's get going.  who's going to be the winner?  the 200th comment....ready, GO!

200! I have to wait for 198 people?? I have so much to do today! Now I'm going to be checking your blog all day! It's like EBay! You know watching and waiting for the auction to just about be done before you put in your winning bid! Actually... I've never bid on anything on EBay, so I wouldn't really know... Anyhow! I'll try not to panic! =D

What a fun idea.

Jared Milos said...

Am I eligible for this contest? I would love a finished copy of Panic.

(Don't have one yet...)

Jared Milos said...

200 comments, though? How about the 200th person who buys a ticket to the show gets a high-five from everyone in the band?

Jackson said...

Jared sent me a pre-release copy two days ago and I've been listening to it non-stop since then. Fantastic job fellas! Jeramy - Your drumming is as amazing as I've ever heard it, and I've heard you more than twice. Truly outstanding. I'm going on record as stating "Panic is a great record" and I don't care who knows it.

Jeramy Sossaman said...

c'mon folks...you can do better then this....M O B I L I Z E ! ! ! !

email your friends. we've got 192 to go!

Kimberlyn Totten said...

Me....Me... I want to win...I'm just gonna PANIC if I don't! can I just make 191 more comments!!! Very cool sound J-dog! That's AWESOME!

Jeremy said...

Panic will be good. I've heard some early mixes and they rock. AC30 feedback is artfully rampant and the bass tracks kick the chicken (pay me later, jared). Can't wait for the show!

Woot! Dedication is rehearsing on valentine's day. You know the wives are going to have to get the free copies of the record first after all this neglect.

Jeramy Sossaman said...

oh dude...we aren't rehearsing on valentines day...you're kidding right??? :-)

Jared Milos said...

Definitely not rehearsing on Valentine's Day.

Jeramy Sossaman said...

of course not.

Jared Milos said...

Maybe instead of 200, it should be 20. Cuz then I would win. Right now. Give me the signed album.
