(June 2nd, 2010)
A NATION IS BORN...
Greetings & salutations, and welcome to the very first installment of Octane 99's "State of the Band Address".
If you're reading this you already may be a proud new member of "NATION 99", Octane 99's brand-new official fan club! A personal thanks to all of you out there who have taken the time to support us by visiting the new site and signing up for the club in the last couple months - This is the age of a New Nation!, and if you haven't signed up yet, then what the hell are you waiting for?! Anyway, this address will cover some of the low-down on the band's new members & recent rebirth, Octane 99's plans for their very first, all original album, and info about new Octane 99 merchandise, as well as periodic new video, pics & sneak-peek song clips coming to the website this summer.
HERE WE GO...
As many of you may (or may not) have heard, Octane 99 is giving up it's cover-band roots to pursue the creation and performance of all-original music; After one-last private show scheduled for mid-June, the band is slated to enter the studio to begin production of their very-first all-original album (still to be named). In fact, the band is so headstrong about the new material that they have already begun early independent production of the album's first two tracks ("It Gets Stranger" and "Song Seven").
YES, IT'S TRUE (IN WITH THE NEW)...
Octane 99 not only has a new lead singer, but has also recently added a fifth member as well!
Fresh lead-vocalist / lyricist JT Walter joined the band as the new front-man in late February of this year; As vocalist / lyricist and professional multi-media producer / engineer, Walter is charged with the new album's lyrical content and *song writing, as well as all Octane's new graphics and production - you like that website & shiny new logo?!
*(But of course, all music will ultimately be written / composed by the entire band)
Shawn Coles, professionally acclaimed solo musician, has also recently stepped onto the scene this May as new guitar addition and back-up vocalist to help round-out that brand-spankin'-new Octane 99 signature sound that's brewing in the lab.
