What more could a band wish for?
We're releasing our brand new video IN-GAME.. In fact, it's being premiered in a virtual insane asylum. The mad geniuses at Artix Entertainment have devised an incredible live event based on the Committed video concept, complete with character voice acting from the band!
There will be even MORE in-game music by One-Eyed Doll -- and an entire CD release!! The first small batch of Something About a Dragon CDs will be sold exclusively at HEROMART and live shows, and the download will be available to fans at our MUSIC SITE.
We're so grateful to the Artix Entertainment crew for bringing us into their family. We hope you'll all join us Friday!
We're excited to be playing a HOMETOWN SHOW this weekend in Austin! Click the flyer for tickets, set times and details!!
DIRTY IS HERE!!!!! YAyyyY!!!! We only made 1000 of the first vinyl print, so get yours before they run out!!!!! Thanks SO MUCH to all of you who pre-ordered our record!!! YOU MADE THIS HAPPEN!!!!
SEPARATELY MASTERED FOR CD, DIGITAL AND VINYL!
Junior and I recorded this album with Sylvia Massy's amazing vintage equipment in Weed, California at RadioStar Studios. With our friend and engineer Zak Stirling and the blessing of the great Sylvia Massy, we were in great company.
We played the guitar and drum parts together old school in an abandoned church to capture our natural live groove. There were weird organs and all sorts of fun stuff for us to play with in there, and we took full advantage!! These songs resonate with darkness, dirt and the spirits who live in that old church turned studio.. I can literally smell the place when I listen to these songs.
This album is really gnarly and raw, a little bluesy and VERY dark.. It's serious and brooding.. kind of calls back to our Sabbath, Zeppelin, Pink Floyd influences. We couldn't help but revisit a couple of our classics in this style. You will hear three familiar tunes that we have always wanted to record in this way, and the rest is completely new stuff - some that I've been holding onto for years for the opportunity to record vinyl, and some new that I wrote just for this project. It's all INCREDIBLE sounding, so real you can taste it. :) Hope you all enjoy experiencing this music as much as we love creating it.
Goodbye to a beloved Austin icon, who I was honored to be flashed by on a regular basis when I worked on 6th Street at the tattoo shop and played shows on Red River...
We had a great time with Bots in The Garage in San Antonio... Check out the interview and two live songs!
Two girls in Holland gave their class a presentation all about One-Eyed Doll. We give them an A++++++!
Thanks so much to Jonny Flash for helping me deal with the switcharoo process. All that back end server DNS crap is not my thing, I'm telling you.. but Jonny is a wizard! See his wonderful website, VHPSTUDIOS.COM right HERE and hire him for something nerdy. Also buy his album, on which I am a backup singer!
A note from Jason, AKA, "Junior":
"I remember the moment clearly. It was during our 2010 Spring US tour. Kimberly and I were sitting at a coffee shop in Philadelphia, and she nonchalantly forwarded me an email from a producer. Kimberly gets lots of letters from producers hoping we'll record with them, but usually she just deletes them. Thus far I had recorded all of the albums... Break, Monster, Sleep and Hole - and she was quite satisfied to continue making our music in house. This particular email struck her fancy though, because it was from... gasp... a girl!
