Amalgama Issues Band Activity Update

Amalgama has issued the following update about the band's upcoming activity:

"Winter arrived here in upstate New York a few weeks ago. While technically the season doesn't start until just before Christmas you wouldn't know it had you been looking out the window at any point during that particular day. John has been immersed in StarCraft 2 for the last month after playing catch-up with everything following this year's election cycle (Watch the video until the end... gotta love politics!). Blizzard has created a soul-sucking machine with WoW and SC2. If you encounter either of these games, run away. If you value your free time you'll heed our warnings.

"In other exciting non-weather related news, Amalgama performed 'Forsaken Soldiers' on After Hours with Joe Bonilla, a local program here in the Capital Region. The taping was last Friday afternoon and will probably be the most metal thing that local access has ever seen (it premiered locally last night at 11pm and will be up on the interwebs shortly). The whole afternoon was quite the experience: the actual studio was deep in the bowels of super complex of a building on a local college campus literally in a 'sub-basement.' We felt like we were in some kind of Resident Evil style facility where some monster was going to pop out and rip us apart. Once we arrived on location the stage was set and there was much bullshitting around while we waited for the audience to file in. Joe Bonilla is a personal friend of John and was very gracious to interview him before our performance. TV studios are hot places as we discovered rather quickly during that afternoon deep underground. All those goddamn lights.

"Our next big show is going to be here in Albany when we open for Taproot on Sunday, December 12th at Bogies. Interested in coming out to the show? Email us back and we'll shoot you information on how to get your hands on some tickets. We'll be sharing the stage with Ninepin, Aficianado and a few other local groups so it should be an interesting time.

"Hopefully you've had a chance to watch some of the more recent web-videos we've posted up on our YouTube page over the last month or so. There is more stuff in the editing phases right now, including the music video for 'Forsaken Soldiers' which we shot in late October with Brian DeFrees. So stay tuned, seriously."
