Cyber MIRKday

HELLO MIRKins!

We hope everyone had an amazing holiday. I know all of us stuffed our faces as much as possible.

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is always a huge party night, and this year was no exception. We played at Elda's on Lark to an awesome, enthusiastic crowd. Everyone came out including Tree Shurts who brought a very special Northern Lights friend...

Our drummer Steve is finishing up his senior project for St. Rose and needed some help from his fellow band mates on recording some MIRK tracks...

So this is the big week!!! The moment we have all been waiting for...our local album release party!

For those who have been living under a rock for the past 2 months, I will catch you up...Our new album 'Grind' is set to be released nation wide in March, 2012. However, our local, diehard fans have been waiting so long to hear this that we had to reward them for being so loyal. We decided to have a local album release party. There are only 500 copies of the new album available which we had printed up for a special fan exclusive. This Friday, December 2nd, we will give out these 500 copies to everyone that purchases a ticket to the show. The show is at the Armory in Albany NY. Check out this facebook invite for more details.



We are so proud to have this album and so lucky to be able to share it with you. We really appreciate your support and hope to see you all there.

Also, this week we ran an ad in the Metroland. Here is picture evidence taken by our keyboardist, Andy. Notice he is driving whilst he took this photo...



That's all we have for you this week. You can purchased tickets for the show HERE or at the door.

Until next time,

Rock Star - Cock Star

HELLO MIRKins!!

So this week was filled with more preparation for our album release party which is December 2nd at the Armory in Albany NY. Check the facebook invite HERE for more details.

Kate and Mike got together to work out some pedal effects for all the new songs, it eventually became a penis contest with all the pedals and even though Mike has the bigger pedalboard, Kate wins that contest hands down.



Also at rehearsal, Mirk decided he was tired of just be a singer, and wanted to experience what it was like to be a true musician...

Turtles in a Half Shell

Hello MIRKins!

Although we didn't have any shows this past weekend, we have been hard at work preparing for our December 2nd album release show at the Armory in Albany NY. We actually have been practicing so hard, that Steve hit himself in the hand with his stick!



It swelled up so much that he had to have his hand amputated and then it got infected and he died...



But we want to stress just how awesome this show is going to be. The official release of the album will be in March. However, we have such an amazing and loyal fan base here in Albany, and you guys have been waiting for so long that we are printing a fan exclusive only copy of the album, which you will get when you purchase a ticket.



Tickets are available HERE!

This week our music video for Beautiful Music was put up on WorldStarHipHop. Check out the video HERE.



I don't really know how to lead this video in, so Ladies and Gentlemen, here's Mike Thornton!

Well that's all we have for you this week. Tune in next week to see which band members gets killed off.
