I Love Brand X In The Spring Time

Thursday, April 26th, 2018

Greetings,

As always, hoping that all is well to those who read these words. It’s been an incredibly fun and busy couple of weeks, but just as Spring comes into bloom, so too, do the shows! Brand X is getting ready to hit the road in May in support of our upcoming live Ep, ‘Locked and Loaded: Live at Longs Park Amphitheater’, which will be available for sale at the upcoming shows, including our performance at this year’s RoS Fest¬†on May [the] 4th [be with you]! This recording is a memento of the 5th show i had played with the band at that point, prior to officially joining the group and filling in for the incomparable Kenwood Dennard. The music and my relationship to the band has grown much since this recording, but it’s still wonderful to have something that documents the experience of that first run with one of my childhood, as well as my dad’s, favorite bands. Seldom do things get checked off the proverbial “bucket list”, but when they do, they should be embraced fully, warts and all.

Also coming up in pertinent news, Imperial Triumphant has officially announced the release of our upcoming full length, ‘Vile Luxury’, which will be out this June via Throatruiner Records and Gilead Media! We are very excited for this release, as well as personally, as this will mark the second album i’ve done for the band that includes some original compositions of mine, one of which to be featured on our upcoming music video. We will be releasing this one as a Gatefold double vinyl and in several options, so be sure to be on the look out for this one!

 

For those of you in NYC, I’ll be performing this Thursday with guitarist Jeff Miles at Bar Next Door, two sets starting at 8:30p

Friday, a double header with guitarist Sally Gates and bassist Trevor Dunn at Coney Island Baby at 7pm, followed by the Richard Padron Group playing the late set at Fat Cat, 1am-3am-ish,

Saturday, performing at the Flushing Town Hall with Arun Luthra & KJP, show time at 6pm!

 

 

If you’re in town, would love to see you at any of these shows, and for those of you who are fans of the BX, see you on the road!

Be kindness, to oneself and another. Sometimes kindness is not what one thinks it is, given the circumstances/time.

Cheers,

kenny

New Year, New Music

Greetings and Happy New Year!

I hope this message finds you all well and and at ease. Now that January is in full swing and my schedule has lightened, I will come back to updating this site and keeping you all abreast as to what is going on. As it is, I do have some rather happy news to tell you, so on with the info.

Earl Maneein-violinist and founder of the bands Resolution 15 & Seven)Suns– and I have been working on a new project together that we call, “Black Heart Sutra”, a group that exists well within the bounds of Metal, but is a place where Earl and I can explore our writing and improvisatory impulses, a medium for us to keep composing together. As of this week, we begun reworking one of the first songs that we wrote together under the new moniker titled, “The Transitioning”. I made a quick behind the scenes video of our session earlier this week documenting our new ideas for the song and making plenty of adolescent jokes.
