We are playing a show on January 8th at Roboto with Beartrap. We’ll be playing a new song or two. And eating Spak. Will you be there?
We finally put our track from Toxicbreed’s Casa de Diversion Volume 4 compilation up on our bandcamp. We play this differently live now, but it’s still the same song. Listen, download, and share as you please.
So things have been pretty quiet on our end as of late. We apologize and want to let you know that things are alive and well with Mere Phantoms, though we are taking things at a slower pace than we did over the summer. We don’t have any shows booked at the moment. If you would like to book us, please contact us on our Gmail (email@example.com). Because the three of us have all started new jobs recently, we are limited to only playing weekend shows for now and have no plans to tour in the immediate future.
We have been hard at work writing new material. We hope to enter the studio someday (as soon as we have the money) to begin recording our collaboration EP with Nyodene D. We hope to have another EP finished by the time we record that as well. (We played a song off this potential release at our last show with Ringworm, for those who were there.) Both of these releases will be partnered with zines including lyrics, essays, and other treats as we see fit. We are really excited to finish this material and release it. More updates to come on that in the future.
For now, we recommend you listen to Dead In The Dirt’s new LP, watch Maximum Tolerated Dose and Blackfish, read Ishmael and The Story Of B by Daniel Quinn as well as various writings by Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn, and enjoy the fall harvest of squash, apples, grapes, and/or whatever grows near you, if you have not done those things yet/recently.
This show is going to rip! You don’t want to miss it! Flyer thanks to EMS. http://www.tattoosbyems.com/
Here’s the flyer for our show on August 31st at Roboto!
We have two shows quickly approaching:
Saturday August 31st @ The Mr Roboto Project (Pittsburgh, PA) with Edhochuli and Jowls
Monday September 30th @ Basement Transmissions (Erie, PA) with Ringworm, Black Mask, Homewrecker, Slaves BC, and Starve
Both shows are gonna rip so make sure you make it out to them!
So here’s an update of sorts, if yinz are into that sort of thing:
Last night was awesome! We played at Basement Transmissions with Rabid Pigs, Smoke & Mirrors, and Discourse. Every band ripped and if you didn’t come out, you missed out!
Our next show is next Thursday in Pittsburgh with Thick Skin, Rabid Pigs, Purge, and Osho! Gonna be a really awesome show. Stoked to play in Pittsburgh again. First time back there since December, but since two of us are relocating to Pittsburgh, you can expect to see us a bit more often in that area.
We just updated our Storenvy. The “Our Hunger Knows No Bounds” shirt is currently sold out. We’ve discussed getting more of that design printed or maybe doing back patches. We will see. The CD’s are on sale so they are a little more affordable. Essentially selling them at cost because we want people to scoop these up!! Also there are only a handful of the album art shirt designs. Hopefully we will be getting some new shirt designs printed soon!
Lastly, we know we talked about recording our new EP this month but due to circumstances with everyone in the band, we’ve had to kind of put things on the back burner for now. We will get around to finishing it up and recording it eventually!
