Welcome back to the blog, Malo fans. We're excited to have our first show under our belt with the new lineup. Things are looking real good for our future in 2017. Our new sound has been well received, and we couldn't be happier. It's great to have Mike Johnson on the bass, ripping it up; and Stone Martin on vocals bringing a new, more sophisticated sound to the band.
We played our first show together on New Year's Eve at Joe's Grotto. We had the early slot, due to various post-show activities that needed to take place. However, this didn't stop us from lighting it up and pouring our heart and soul out on the stage. The new material is a slight departure from what we used to play, but not much. The vocal style is the biggest change, and it fits us well! We had a great time, and look forward to playing at Joe's Grotto once again on January 27th for the Vape Gravy and This Old Vape Shop Presents: Y3K 3000 member celebration. There will be lots of great bands on this bill, so come on out and have a great time with us!
We're finishing up work on the next album, and only have a couple more songs to finish up. Tracks for the other 9 songs are done, and just need final mixing. We're hoping to release this baby real soon! Stay tuned.
As I mentioned before, we have a show at Joe's Grotto in Phoenix on January 27th. Our set time is at 11:00pm. We also have a show scheduled for March 17th (St. Patrick's Day) at the Rogue Bar. Make sure to catch us at one of these great shows, or BOTH!
We want to thank all our wonderful fans out there. We're glad to have you with us, and we look forward to a great 2017!
