2.21.10_Slave to The Metal Festival
Okay here’s the scoop: The show on March 6th is an Industry Showcase. That means that there will be representatives from the music industry looking for talent. So if any of you are interested in buying tickets in advance call or email me and we’ll make it happen. To entice you, there are two new tracks posted on our MySpace, www.myspace.com/mournedbyflies. They’re the first two songs at the top of the player, “Lambs To Slaughter” and “Paradise Lost.” Take a listen then download for free. Leave a comment to let us know what you think of’em!
Pre-sale tickets for the “Slave To The Metal Festival” determine the line-up of the playbill. If we sell the most tickets we get first choice on a time slot to play. We really need people to buy tickets in advance so that we don’t play at 2 o’clock in the morning and you all don’t have to wait until then for us to play, you’ll also save a couple of bucks. Tickets MUST be purchased before the day of the show. We turn all remaining tickets and money from sales in 2 hours before the doors open so that the promoter can make the line up for the night.
Tickets are $10 pre-sale, $12 day of the show. It’s a 2-day show March 5th-6th; we’re playing on the 6th.
2.12.10_Bender’s Tavern March 6th! As the lead in suggests we’ll be playing at Bender’s Tavern on March 6th. We’re using this gig as an opportunity to unleash 30 minutes of brand spanking new Mourned By Flies Metal! Everybody keeps asking when we’re playing another show, well here you go. Ask and ye shall receive. We’ve had a lot of false starts and gigs that seemed to disolve before they were booked, sorry that it took over a year to get the show back on the road. We can confidently say that it has been time well spent, confusion not withstanding This is some of the coolest stuff we’ve written so far. We’re playing the second night of a two night Metal show. That’s all we’ve been told so far. As soon as we get more info we’ll post it.

As we mentioned in June, we’ve been furiously writing some ferocious new material over this past Spring and Summer, Skar and His wife welcomed a new baby boy into the world in July Mr. Gristle went to San Francisco for a bit of respite and Greg traveled to Greece and Italy for some travel abroad. All in all it’s been a very busy summer. But, as we all have noticed, summer is looking to turn to fall and that means we are looking to book some shows! We’ve got a few irons in the fire but nothing concrete just yet. Stay Tuned……
6.7.09_Time To Write…All of us have a lot on our plate this summer so unfortunately we don’t have any shows currently booked.

12.19.08_Interview With KT Prod. We ran across an interview conducted by KT Productions with our guitarist Greg. This is actually from back in July. We had no idea whether or not KT would use and we never heard anything from them either way. At any rate, it’s on their site and It’s rather amusing, check it out and let us know what you think.
An Italian webzine did a killer review of our record, Signs Of Life. Go and check it out on the Merchandise page. It’s posted right underneath the CD. Thanks to Markus Ganzherrlich and Rock and Metal Bands.com for the sweet review.

2.8.08_Today is a red letter day boys and girls! We have several new shows osted in the Shows/Tour page as well as some new information on the forthcoming album. Now before I go any farther, there is some good news and some bad news.
The good news is this-The new album Signs Of Life is finished and in our hot little hands. That’s right the wait is almost over. Here’s the bad news. The official CD release party is a little ways off yet. Your mantra until then should be this, “Good things come to those who wait; and I’m good goddammit!” However, we will have a few with us over the next few weeks at shows. If you are really good, and we know that you well be because your mantra says so, we might have a few for sale. That’s right, you could be the coolest kid on the block because you got an advance copy of the new album FROM THE BAND, for a nominal fee of course.
Music doesn’t grow on trees. All of you little music pirates should keep that in mind. Illegal downloading will hurt everyone in the long run. If you want folks to quit making music, keep stealing it and it’ll go away in a hurry. Enough of the soapbox preachin’, today is a happy day. ROCK N” FUCKIN” ROLL!!!
1.29.08_To celebrate our new album, Signs Of Life, is at the printer right this very minute. Just think, the copy that you will covet until the very moment you can get your quivering, sticky little fingers on it, is being pressed at the replication factory as you read this. Because all of you are so rampantly dedicated to us, we have posted the whole damn thing for everyone to enjoy. In fact you’re listening to it right now. To hear it from start to finish, just let the music play and play and play. Or if you’re the anxious type you can skip to any track your little heart desires, the media player is at the bottom left of the browser window.

Speaking of events check the SHOWS/TOUR page for some new show updates.
Many of you may notice the utter lack of comments posted since September. Well chalk that up to learning the ins and outs outs of web administration. There were many until they mysteriously disappeared, accompanied by a startled “WHAT THE FUCK???” In other words, we really do keep up with regular news updates. We’re not lazy, just computer illiterate at times.
