So, we've been working on a bunch of behind the scenes stuff for the band lately. For starters we're switching email providers from MailChimp to Klaviyo. Why? Partially financial reasons. MailChimp is getting kind of expensive. Klaviyo is less money, the analytics are way better and it's got better features. The switch is pretty techy and frustrating but, necessary. Next up, my ten year old dinosaur computer needs to be replaced. It's pretty much done. So, for the time being I'll be limited working from my phone. Everything that you've seen that involves Go Evolution has been done on that computer so, I can't really complain! I've started a really cool new music video! But, that will get finished after the new desktop arrives. Spotify has added us to some playlists. So, I'll be talking about that more in the coming days! That's about it besides the mess of ideas that constantly float about inside my head. There just aren't enough hours in the day! Talk soon!!!
Go evolution is an American indie alternative rock band
featuring singer/guitarist Matt Phillips.
The video for CRY is done! I`m happy with how it turned out! I wrote it about the loneliness of a broken relationship.But, you can interpret it anyway you want.It took a lot of hours at the computer! I wouldn`t have it any other way though. Thanks for supporting us by watching it!!! Feel free to watch it over and over! LOL! Enjoy it!
A lot`s been happening with the band lately!The new album came out in April! It`s been doing great! We released it in a video series that you can still see even if you`re a little late to the party.Here`s the link- dark matters video series The Bigfoot video did really well on Youtube and Facebook! It was also a lot of fun to make. Scroll down to see it.
I`ve been keeping super busy keeping up with Facebook posts and promotion.Sending out a lot of emails to drum up support for the band. Also, working on getting the new tunes into some more music licensing libraries!
The new video for Cry is done and you`ll be able to see it very soon.
Busy, busy, busy is how life is right now! I wish I had some time to write some new songs! For now though I`m focused on bringing Dark Matters to more people that appreciate the style of music that we play. Thanks for the ongoing support! Spread the word if you can!!!
So, the new album is called Dark Matters! We`ll be doing something really different for this release! The majority of albums released come out the same way... The album is released, maybe you`ll hear a song or two from it, maybe a random interview, that`s about it. I always enjoyed the behind the scenes type stuff about albums... what are the songs about? How was it recorded? Are there any interesting stories that go along with it? Well, what if you knew what every song was about and were able to talk directly with the artist as the album was coming out? That`s exactly what we`re going to do with this new release! This album will not be available to the general public initially. We`re going to release it through a video email series! Each day we`ll release a video about the song and the song itself to listen to. We`re encouraging questions along the way too! So, if you`re a fan of the band we hope you`ll join us for this adventure! I promise it`ll be a unique experience and the only way to really get the feel of what this album is all about! Just fill out the form above. Can`t wait to see you there!!!
So, after many,many months we`re about to get underway with the new album! Things are looking good for a spring release! This is the first song off the album. It`s called This Is Now! It`s a song about feeling unnoticed, unappreciated and alone. Maybe you can relate? I`ve always been a fan of Bigfoot ever since I was a little kid. It`s probably why even to this day I still like taking long walks in the woods, sometimes by myself. Maybe it`s the fear of the unknown or fascination of it. I`ve seen some cool things alone in the woods before. Unfortunately not Bigfoot! My son, his friend and I filmed this over the summer and I thought the Bigfoot storyline really went well with the lyrics! I hope you like it! Stay tuned for more things to come soon!
Taking another big bite out of this project! The recording is done and mixed. Now it`s on to mastering. The album artwork is done. Now on to making a video for the first single which is called This Is Now. Can`t wait! We`re also going to be releasing this album in a unique way that I can`t wait to disclose. But, you`ll have to continue to be patient. It definitely won`t take as long as the new Tool album! Till then...
We`ve been wanting to design a new logo for a while now! So, check it out. Now we can move on to the album artwork! That brings us one step closer to album release!
I feel like I`ve been saying this for a while now! So, I`ll tell you what is actually done at this very moment. All of the songs are written, recorded and mixed. The album is titled Dark Matters. I didn`t actually have a song called dark matters.So, I decided I`d try to write one if I could without forcing it. I tried and it came about pretty easily so, the albums closer is called Darkness Matters. Next is mastering,album artwork and a video. so, this project is moving ever closer to the finish line and is a true test in patience for me! I`m confident it will be worth the wait!
Finally something new for you to listen to! We`re still in the mix process of recording but, we wanted to get something new out if we could. This song is called Rain. It`s a song I wrote about my dad after he passed. If you`ve lost someone close to you, you can probably relate to it. This is an unmastered version. So, the finished one will sound a little more polished. What I did was mute the vocals and sing to the backing tracks. So, these vocals are live [for better or worse]. Hope you like it! We can`t wait till we can let you hear the rest!
We've started recording #12 for the new album! This will probably be the last of this batch. It's called One More Chance and it's about going back in time and missing life when things were simpler. I can't stop tapping my foot to it's groovy beat!
