Now that the dust has settled a little bit, I can revisit these past few weeks with a clearer mind. Nothing catastrophic happened, but if you know me I can get really caught up and backed up with some of my work. But that'll be a post for another day.
Ghostwolf (SA Martinez, Evan Anderson, Ryan Siegel) announced a 3 city tour starting in LA then onto Omaha and ending in NYC. These shows were a long time coming and it was great to see these shows come together and so many people come and support them. I remember hearing the first demos at SA's house years ago and immediately asking him for a copy of it. That request was shot down quick, but not because he didn't want me to have the songs, but at some later date he wanted to re record them and give them a proper release. As you know 311 tours A LOT and what little time they have off is probably spent with family and gearing up for the next tour. So the wait for me to hear Ghostwolf again was well over a 5 year wait. That was about the time Ryan and Evan really started getting ƎXOE off the ground. I would hear songs here and there as they were being finished and finally when Lunar Halos was released, Ghostwolf was no longer a project. It was an entity. These songs aren't just put together haphazardly, they are amazingly crafted songs with substance. So you could imagine how happy I was to hear that they were planning these 3 shows. Ghostwolf would be accompanied by 3 amazing musicians in Kenny Schwartz, Dan Ellis, and Sherman. I'm glad I got to be a fly on the wall during this run of shows. (I couldn't make it to Omaha).
