After hundreds of shows in 30-something states, six months straight of living in a van, making countless new friends, and seeing more of the country than we ever thought we would, we have called it a day. Thanks to everyone who lent us a hand along the way, gave us a couch or a floor to sleep on, hopped in the van to travel with us, came to a show, bought a CD or a koozie or even bought us a drink. We couldn't have done it with out you. Thanks for the support you guys. I'm sure you can expect more music out of all of us in the future but for now, it was a good run.
Our album Outside Providence was released one year ago today! In celebration it's available for free download on our bandcamp site. We don't want want your money. Go get it! http://callingmorocco.bandcamp.com
Hey look, our website is back up and running! Our site and e-mail have been down for the past 2 weeks because I'm an idiot and I don't know how the Internet works (I'm only good at finding funny pictures of cats). But we're back now thanks to our wonderful, insightful, and handsome web man Bradley Elliot! Sorry for all the e-mails that have been ignored, I'm sure there were a million record deal offers that we simply never got. Bummer. In other CM news, we've got some live versions of NEW SONGS we'll hopefully be posting in the next few days. On top of that I've got some acoustic demos and covers of songs from bands like Jawbreaker, Drag The River, and Symphony of Distraction that I'm stoked on. I'll try to post those as well if I can get my shit together. It was good to have some down time but it's been even better being productive again. Speaking of productivity, I'm going to go drink whiskey now. -K www.callingmoroccomusic.com
Some of you may already know, but Ben has decided to leave the band in exchange for fortune and fame. Or at least a more stable life style that provides an actual income. We wish him the best of luck and look forward to sleeping on his floor in the future. In the mean time, we'll be taking a break from touring to work on new songs, record some of those songs, and play some local California shows with our good friend and original bassist Zak "Move Them Fingers" Norlyn filling in until we find someone new. In the meantime, here's the first demo acoustic version of "Mess" I just found (http://soundcloud.com/callingmorocco/mess-acoustic-demo-in-d). I apparently wrote it in a different key originally and it has slightly different words. I think it's a pretty interesting listen. Check it out if you dare.
