Amalgama Comments On Band's Five Year Anniversary

Amalgama has checked in with the following update about the band's fifth anniversary:

"A strange and exciting thing crept up on us this past January and quietly slipped by without much acknowledgment by everyone here in Amalgama: our 5 year anniversary. January 7th, 2006 was our very first appearance onstage as a band at the Hudson Duster, and it was an intimidating gig. After spending a week or so jamming on many of the songs that were eventually recorded for our first album When the Dust Settles we headed to Troy for our first show. The Duster's reputation was well documented as a hard-ass metal and hardcore club among Capital District metal fans so we felt a lot of pressure heading up the ladder to the stage area (an interesting set-up that we have yet to encounter again). So here we sit looking back 5 years, 2 EPs, 1 LP, 2 live releases and another LP and live EP in the works (read on for more about that). Thank you to all who has supported us over the years by buying our releases and coming to our shows.

"After a few months of back and forth correspondence with our friends at 91.5fm WRPI we have finally settled on a date for our next on-air live performance during their Wednesday Night Live program. Twice before we've had the privilege of being featured on the station (documented on our 2 live releases 'Live from WRPI' in 2007 and 'Heed the Horns: Still Alive from WRPI' in 2008) so making our return to the show is pretty damn exciting. If you'd like to tune in to the show on Wednesday night just spin your radio dial to 91.5fm (time TBA) OR if you're out of the immediate broadcast area you can hear the show online.

"In addition to our live broadcast on the 16th we will be headlining at Valentine's the following Saturday, February 19th. This is our first headlining hometown show in a while and it's at one of our favorite spots in the Capital District. Way back in 2006 Valentine's was the location of our second show EVER so it's a homecoming of sorts. Just a couple of young kids playing loud music at a club where we couldn't even drink because we weren't old enough yet. We've come a long way and we'll hope you come and share the experience with us; you can RSVP here."
