We’ve got so much going on these days it’s hard to know where to begin!
First of all, our show schedule for the season has shaped up very nicely for the summer and fall. We’re looking forward to playing the Old Cowtown Museum in Wichita and the Missouri Celtic Festival for the first time and we’re especially excited to be returning to Steampunk November in Dallas!
Check out our schedule!
And if you missed our livestream in April, you can listen here for a bunch of new songs we’ll playing in the future.
Secondly, (speaking of new songs) we’re going to start recording again soon!! It’s been a while since the first album, and lots has changed since then. We have new members, new instruments, new sounds, new gear, and new ideas! But don’t worry, we still have the same Steampunk flavor and folk/classical/whatever-we-are style as always. We can’t wait to get this rolling so we can share the audio goodness with all of you!
And last, but not least, we have a new drummer under construction! Yes- you read that right. If you’re new to External Combustion Orchestra, you may not have heard that our drummer is a robot. (He’s not very creative, but SUPER consistent!) Our resident evil genius, Hedera Helix, is building a bigger, better robotic drummer for the band to take the place of the first edition known as Junkbot. You can read more about the creation of Junkbot here, and be sure to keep an eye out for updates on the new guy! (We’re tentatively calling him “Slim”)
