"electronic saviors" benefit comp [09 Feb 2010|12:09pm]

the chinese theatre remix of "duct tape my heart" is included on "electronic saviors: industrial music to cure cancer", a massive 4-disc compilation! released today on metropolis records, this 83-track collection is to benefit the foundation for cancer research and wellness.

we're definitely wayyy on the softer/poppier side than most of the other bands featured, but we were psyched to be included. here's an interview with promoter Jim Semonik, who put it all together:

and here's more info about the compilation:

Pocket Zombie! [04 Feb 2010|11:40pm]

So we've had songs in video games before... but now i'm actually IN a video game! or my zombie alter-ego is, anyway. Go check out this nifty lil' iPhone game, Pocket Zombie! they just released their Zombie Girlfriend Charity Pack featuring me, IGN's Jessica Chobot, Destructoid's Chad Concelmo, and Game Informer's Meagan VanBurkleo. We all chose charities to donate to (mine is the Humane Society) because zombies sometimes get a bad rap, what with all that terrorizing and brain-eating.

big news! [25 Nov 2009|12:58am]

It's time for an exciting announcement: our new lineup! Well, as you may know, our live lineup has been rather "fluid" over the past several years. One thing we learned through all of this was that we preferred playing as a four-piece as opposed to just a three-piece. It makes for better energy onstage. And that's a good thing. Anyway, I am very pleased to introduce:
• Robert John "Bananas" Foster: OK, he's already a familiar face, he's toured with us since 1996 and was already going to become an official member of the band even before the Duke retired. He'll be handling drum and keytar duties.
• Christmas Disco Marie Sagan: I am psyched to not be the only girl in the band anymore! Christmas will be synthing and vocoding, maybe even doing some backing vocals.

We've been busy rehearsing and we'll be making our debut at the Boston show in December, so try to be there if you can!

So, I have to ask. . . [15 Nov 2009|02:58pm]

[ mood | curious ]

I have been to a couple Freezepop shows at this point and they have led me to want to know one thing. . .

What do they do with all the underwear they get when they play Super Sprode?

1) we're on twitter now! http://twitter.com/freezepopband

2) symbion project album pre-order is happening! this is from the duke:
"5 years in the making, Symbion Project has at long last completed a 4th studio album release, entitled misery in soliloquy. Self-released on kasson’s own Speed of Dark Music, this album returns to the downtempo flavors, esoteric beats, and lush synthesizers found on 2003’s Immortal Game but is enhanced with featured vocals by Kasson and Melissa Kaplan (UHP/Splashdown) and elaborate string arrangements. Misery in Soliloquy comes with both a stereo audio cd and a video dvd that contains the high-def stereo music and quad surround audio which delivers an incredible immersive listening experience. The packaging design was done by Stoltze Design, who also did Immortal Game’s packaging and all of the Splashdown releases. If you pre-order the album by Oct 6th you receive a copy of the cd/dvd album + the wound up by god or the devil cd + an 11x17” poster of the album art all for $15usd (+shipping). It’s a pretty amazing deal for a ton of music. Click on this link to place your order: http://www.symbionproject.com/misery_preorder.html
I hope you enjoy it as much I did making it! Also, come and join me on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/symbion-project/10641230828?ref=ts."

[ mood | ecstatic ]

For all of you who couldn't be at PAX last night, and all of you who want to re-live the experience: hot off my camera, crappy photos! Edit: and the link actually works now!

Some previews:

Overheard in the women's restroom last night immediately after Freezepop's set: "I wasn't that much of a fan before, but now I want to marry all of them. Simultaneously or concurrently."
