Whalies! Vinyl! Gigs!

Wow have we had an amazing weekend! First...some of our vinyl came in! YES! We received our limited run (only 50 copies made) of our debut LP Red Over Red on clear red vinyl on Friday! It's absolutely gorgeous! The 200 copies on black vinyl are on the way! You will be able to purchase both very soon at The Telegraph here in New London and of course through us at shows! We will be looking into setting up a way for you to purchase the vinyl online through our bandcamp page, so stay tuned for more info on that!

Then later on Friday we played at The El-N-Gee Club with Weedeater from North Carolina, Snow Orphan and When The Deadbolt Breaks! Absolutely ridiculous show! Had a blast!

Saturday brought us to The Whalie Awards at Hygienic Art Park in New London where we were nominated for 5 awards and which we are proud to announce we won two!

[People's Choice] Best Hard Rock/Metal
[Critics Choice] Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance for "Gone by the Boards"

What's up next? Well this Sunday June 2, we're headed to Providence where we'll be talking live on the air with our friend Tony Jones on his radio show "The Tony Jones Show" on WARL 1320AM starting at 5pm!

We'll be back at the El-N-Gee June 15 with our friends Sadplant! We'll actually be playing on the bar stage -  it's only $3 cover and they'll have a bunch of drink specials! Should be awesome! Dig it!

Then we're off to our home away from home... Portland, Maine! We'll be returning to Geno's where we'll be playing with our new friends Saturns Return! Can't wait! Check out our shows tab for more upcoming gigs!

We've got a lot to update you on!!! We've got two really big shows that we're playing locally here in New London, CT this month!!

The first is actually this weekend, Saturday May 11 @ Oasis Pub (16 Bank Street) with our new friends, (who we first played with at Emerge Festival in Hartford back in March), Atrina - AND - our very good friends from Boston, Wrought Iron Hex! 9:30pm, $5, 21+ Facebook Event Page

Then... we were just added to a HUGE show on Friday May 24 @ The El-N-Gee Club (86 Golden Street) with WeedEater! Apparently this it their only New England tour date, so don't miss it! Also on the bill are another local New London band, Snow Orphan. Other bands on the bill will be announced soon. This is absolutely huge, and we could not be more excited for this show!!!

For those of you locally, you'll probably notice that the Weedeater show is the night before the WHALIE awards! Yup, gonna be a busy weekend for us! The Whalie Awards are the New London equivalent of the Grammys. A full-on event incorporating the glitz and glamour that comes with your typical award show... red carpet included!! We are nominated in the People's Choice "Best Hard Rock/Metal" category where anyone can vote! We'd sure love to win one of these babys... and would love you forever if you cast a vote for us here: www.wailingcity.com/vote

ALSO... it was a pleasant surprise to have found that Red Over Red was reviewed by the fine folks that run the local music magazine Sound Waves! You can pick up a copy of this zine just about anywhere in New London county... look for it at your favorite venues and restaurants... OR read it online here: http://www.swaves.com/

AND if all that info wasn't enough for you.. our song "All Hands" was used for two really cool videos! The first being Providence Roller Derby's promo for their next bout! Check it out:

The second was in the movie trailer for the upcoming documentary "Fantasm" about horror movie conventions! So cool! Check it out: 

More later!
