03/24/2013: LET'S CATCH YOU UP TO SPEED
* RELESSER's festival performances from Fall 2012 were deemed successful. Pictures from both events have been posted in the MEDIA section of this site.
* If you have visited this site or RELESSER's pages on Facebook or Reverb Nation lately, you may have noticed some change ups in the music player. That's right, the band is working at a steady pace in the studio. The vision is to get about 10 to 12 songs complete before hitting the road again. Right now, with several songs in various stages of production, the guys are about half way through that goal. The band is discussing how and when to release the new music: as singles (one song at a time), in Chapters of 2 or 3 songs at a time, as EPs (4-7 songs at a time), or as an album. If you have a preference you would like to share, please post it on the RELESSER facebook page or email it to email@example.com
09/03/2012: Festival Bound
With one rehearsal left, the band is ready to go fall on their faces playing their first official gig in front of a festival crowd. In all seriousness, the guys are viewing these first two shows as a "let's see if we can pull this off" experience. The idea is to perform, review, and make even better.
"The lineup finally came together in mid July," says Asche. "All we've done so far is go through the few existing RELESSER songs and the Autumn's Descent back catalog and created a 25 minute set list. From there, we've only had the chance to rehearse that and plan for these two performances. We are really looking forward to sitting down as a group after these shows to discuss next steps. It looks like writing and studio time with an emergence to play again (hopefully) in the Spring of 2013. And we're expecting to have learned from these Fall 2012 gigs so we can bring a really great performance in the coming year. We really appreciate the growing fan base and words of encouragement. It has been wonderful so far!
"In 1995, I was at Cornerstone Festival in Central Illinois. I got to see something very special that year. I went to see two of my favorite bands at the time, Circle of Dust and Argyle Park. Opening the show was this new supergroup called Stavesacre. They were playing their first ever show in front of a festival crowd. They were really rough around the edges compared to what they would eventually become. They went on to be one of my favorite bands of all time.
"So if you can, come see RELESSER at these festival shows in September. I'm hoping we'll be like Stavesacre at that first show (or even better). Perhaps you'll be able to get a great story out of it."
