Good afternoon one and all!
Ok....firstly all attempts to keep up to date with this weekly blog died a slow and agonising death. So the term “IMEX WEEKLY BLOG” is now a completely ironic term, the blog will be updated...for lack of a better term, when we can be arsed :D
Right then, onto this blogging shenanigans.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! It's 2012 and we could NOT be more excited for this year if we tried, last year was so amazing for us, playing Bloodstock, winning the Metal Hammer competition to open up for Evile in Nottingham, supporting Xerath and Annotations Of An Autopsy just to name a few highlights! The biggest highlight though has to be the release of our E.P 'THESE LIFELESS PLAINS' – it took us a while to finally release the bastard but the grind has been totally worth it, the feedback has been fantastic. Our primary goal for the first half of 2012 is to tour the hell out of TLP and hopefully shift a few copies in the meantime! So if you know your local promoter get in-touch with them or give us their name so we can spam them until they give a gig! OPERATION 'BUSYFUCKERS' COMMENCE!
Our goal for the second half of the year is already well under way and has been for a good while now. Our first full-length album! We have about 90% of the material written so far, and we couldn't be happier with the results. If you've caught us at a live show recently you will have hopefully heard our 2 new songs 'Your Legacy, Lost' and 'The Forgotten Deceiver'. These tracks give you a taster of the direction we're moving in, heavier, more progressive and more brutal whilst keeping the IMEX sound at the core! Your feedback on the new songs would be awesome, holla at us at shows or on FB!
In the next month or so we are aiming to record our first music video! [Whoop!] This will be for the track WORTHY OF REMAINS off the new E.P. More on this when we have it, keep checking the FB for updates!
Speaking of videos, during our Bloodstock set last year our track THROUGH STINGING EYES was filmed by professional filming company 'THE DARK BOX' [www.thedarkbox.co.uk] You'll have seen us spamming walls with the YouTube video, but if you haven't seen it...
Our first gig of 2012 was at De Bees in Winsford, with our good buddies THIS IS TURIN [www.facebook.com/thisisturin] and Hymn For The Fallen [http://www.facebook.com/HymnForTheFallen] The night was a huge success, with many heads packing into the venue to support local metal, was awesome to see. HFTF delivered their crunching deathcore sound and TIT were as tight as ever, can't wait for your album boys! Sortit aaarrrrrrt!
Future shows are looking like this -
Feb 4th – Salford w/Candid Iniquity & Infernal Creation
Feb 25th – Ellesmere Port w/Last Baron
March 11th – Stoke-On-Trent w/Wolfcrusher
However, WE WANT MORE SHOWS! Keep your eyes peeled to the FB for new show announcements etc.
Well that just about does it, thanks for taking the time to read this week's blog and hopefully we'll be a bit more frequent with them in the future! NEXT TIME we should have more news about the video and we will be revealing a little more about the album!
Muchos Love, The Boys From IMEX.
