Update from the studio!!

Greetings all!

So much has been going on, it's nice to take a step back and share a little.  Plus it helps you to see what you're actually working towards.

We're so glad to get this recorded and out to you guys, we've come such a long way in a short time since the Fires Ungoverned EP.  Seriously, this EP will melt your face. So be ready.  :)

Bass is done! Pif's guitars are finished, we've started on vocals (yay! I get to go in later today and do more work)

We have a title-this will be The Ascension Construct EP and we're rolling around some pretty awesome artwork ideas that we hope to be able to share with you guys soon.

Pif is feverishly working away at the 2nd studio update video and our first music video!!! The video for-... we'll I guess you'll just have to stay tuned and find out, but it'll be a lot of fun.  I've seen what he's got so far and I excited as hell!  Plus we get to release a single.  Just like the big boys.

But, our first love is performing and we've been itching to do some. But we're in luck!!!!

If you've got some time come down to the Garage Dec 18th for the Frostbite music festival and we'll have blast. Seriously. Let us know if you need tickets, we've got them for $5 vs $8 at the door. More money for presents y'know.

If you haven't already, be sure to check out our first studio update:







As always, you guy rock! Thank you so much.

Shows, Radio interview and Podcasts

Man… it has turned out to be a hell of a couple of months. We’ve got a lot of stuff to catch you up on, so here goes:

Aztalan Turf put us on her pod cast again (which is awesome!) She made it out to the show Friday and gave a shout on the voice print as well. You can check her out at http://www.aztalanturf.com and get the episode at http://www.aztalanturf.com/podcasts/aztalan-turf-016_2010-10-10.m4a

If you missed it we are also on episode 16, so check that out as well.

We are going to be doing a live interview with Infernal Rock Radio out of Milwaukee. It's a neat setup, for about an hour they'll play a few of our songs, several tracks that we've picked out and mix in some Q & A. It'll be Oct 28th at 9PM. We'll have details up about that soon, or you can sign up for the mailing list at www.thiraband.com and we’ll send them right to you. You could even email us questions that you might want us to talk about...

We are heading back to Ground Zero 11/5 to play with GATA and for Niobium's Farwell show, should be an amazing time.

Live, Loud and Local is coming to town! We are officially a part of this awesomeness, so if you would like a chance to see 30-40 bands plus FLAW & Future Leaders of the World over a whole weekend for only $10, give us a shout. It will be an All Ages show at Robert's in Moundsview. We will have pre-sale tickets available and will be blowing up the stage! Guess what? They will actually be paying the bands! Weird, I know. We'll have exact details on this right after this weekend so stay tuned.

Oh, by the by… we are writing again! Bring Your Bruises was a huge success at The Garage and Ground Zero, we’ll be rocking it again at The Enigma 10/30 and we’ll have a little Halloween surprise for you guys :)

I know that's a lot, but will break each event down as it comes up, do not fret. See you guys out there.

August update

What a fantastic month July was.  3 shows, we finally got the EP, we got the shirts in time for the garage.  I mean, yeah  our elevator was broken for the Rock show and we had to haul all our stuff down 3 flights and then we played in a tornado for the Station 4 show… but other than that it was awesome.

We’d like to take a minute to thank everyone again for coming out and showing us support.  A special shout out to Brandie for doing a fantastic job at the merch booth.  She moved twice as much stuff as we would have without her.  We really appreciate it.

We’re #2 on Reverbnation for Minneapolis Metal!  Man it feels good to say that.  Ok. Now on to #1!  Go.

One more thing: we are working on new material! So stick around boys and girls!

Emergency blog go! Full power on now!

#1. No, we did not disappear

#2. We apologize for possibly making you think that we disappeared

#3. If this is your first time here and you’ve never heard of us before today, ignore the above and thank you for coming.  If this is your first time here and you have heard of us… we’ll here is our blog.  We try to put good reads here.  You check back every so often and we’ll do our best to make it worth your while.

Perhaps you have a hard copy of our EP. Fantastics.  No?  please go here: thira.bandcamp.com and download it. If you do have a hardcopy, you can still download and read fun things and liner notes and lyrics and album art.  You can get it for free by entering $0 in the money box.  We are very much ok with this. We love to give this to people.  However, this is a very convenient way to help our cause (with $$) if you’re so inclined. And live in a different city/state/timezone/hemisphere/galaxy… (maybe 3 jokes were enough).  An even better way to help us you ask?  I shall tell you….  Come to our shows.  They’re listed here:  www.thirband.com We’d love it.  Seriously.  We’ll prove it to you…. But you have to come first.

Which brings me to:

#4.  We have ordered shirts.  We will have merch very soon. In fact, we’ll have it in time for our next show.  If you come see us, you can have an EP for $0 and buy a shirt for a number of dollars TBD soon.

#5. Show blogs are coming very soon.  1st show. 2nd show. Quite the events. Not just at the venue, starting long before.  Not now, but soon you will have them.

Well, now you have a reason to check back.  Until then…

Emergency blog stop! All power off!!

Thira is all pressed up

So here we are, thiraband.wordpress.com. Ever useful the myspace blog is, it ain't got crap on wordpress. Now for those that want it all:  reflection, news, venting and general awesomeness that goes on, it will be here.

So, we can keep the email to the important stuff. Remember what we said, we will not spam you. Wait, what's that you say? You have no idea what I'm talking about? Who is Thira? What email?

For answers to those questions go here: www.thiraband.com target="_blank" or here www.myspace.com/thiraband and find the bio. Check out the songs. We'll wait.

You're back? Here we go.

Tracking is done! I'll say it one more time. Tracking is done. Meanwhile, Arko is furiously working on finalizing the mixes so we can move on to mastering and then on to digital release to pressing and you can finally get a copy in your hands.

That being said, we are ramping up promotion and trying to get the word out. We wanted to ask you guys if you would help. You know… if that’s cool. It is? Sweet.

Go here and look on the left side where it says "Join the Mailing List"

If you put in your email address in here, it will send you a link to sign up for our mailing list. That would be that email stuff I was blabbering on about above. It sets us up to send you cool, direct, custom emails about shows, big news, etc. And in turn you’ll get exclusive downloads among other things.

Yep. Sign up for the list and you can download the complete EP the minute it's available. Or any of the subsequent minutes if that's more your thing. Who are we to judge?

Now did you see that little box that says “join the street team?” That’s where the real fun begins. If you want to, check that box and we can give you tasks, we can track progress and give you really cool stuff (show tickets, merch, things we haven’t even thought of yet) once you finish.

In fact, we've got a street team mission going on right now. The prize: a free t-shirt. Kind of cool right? Hurry up though, because it ends 5/23.

Ok. This is a lot for now.  Thank you and you're welcome.  I will leave with this tasty little tidbit.  We start booking proceedings next week.  Do with that what you will.

Welcome to Thira
