News/"Beautiful" Story

 

Hello!

It's been awhile since our last blog. I hope you are all doing well. I certainly am.

First and foremost, we signed a contract with a small label on the UK called NUB Country Records. They are working on officially releasing our 2 LPs through their channels in the UK soon.I'm pretty excited about it and also stoked that the label is a small staff that consists of musicians!

Secondly, we just recorded a live set for a production company called VV & Yourself at Time Warner studio in Miramar. It felt good and we had fun. We should have footage soon and will keep y'all posted as far as when/where the edited version will air.

Things are happening for Roger! Thank you all for your support and encouragement.

Lastly, I've been asked by NUB Records to discuss the lyrical content of the 1st single they will release..."Beautiful." A simple little ditty I started kicking around in my LA days, back in about 2005. I never got around to recording it until about 2007. The lyrics are based on a brief and very torrid relationship I was in around that time. The verses are about her. The chorus lyrics are about what the relationship yielded...my daughter. Although the relationship was quite challenging and not a very good idea for me, I don't regret it. It ultimately led to the best thing that ever happened to me. My daughter has made me the man I would never have become, otherwise.

So, there ya go. For those of you that never knew what that song was about, now you know. 

Cheers!

...Ernie

 

What's up?!?!

 

Hello!!

It's been awhile since my last blog. Where do I start?

We finished the record(http://rogerthebandsd.com/store/wishing_for_boredom/) and had a great release party. Thank so much to those of you that were there!

I booked a tour of the southwest and it unfortunately turned into a solo acoustic tour due to unforeseen happenstance. It turned out to be a good time, anyway. Thanks to all of you that came out to a show, let me crash, got me a show, or got me some blow. Sorry, just kidding. It rhymed. I couldn't help it. Special thanks to Mister Lucky, The Sullivans, The March Divide, Ian Lawler, Ryan Thomas Becker, Tesoro and my sweet Ashley for helping me drive! 3200 miles in 10 days. Good times. Here's some pics...

Happy Holidays from Roger!

 

Hello, Roger! friends!

We thought we'd wish you a happy holiday season, as well as fill you in on what's been going on with us. We're just about done tracking for our second LP, "Wishing for Boredom." 12 tracks thus far, and a very collaborative effort. We're hoping to take a break from shows throughout Dec-Jan to mix and master. A tentative release date of 2/25/14 is the goal. Here's the 1st song that's done, minus the mastering...7_and_7_Is_v3.mp3. An awesome cover. "7 & 7 Is" by the 60's punk band, Love.

Another southwest spring tour is in the works. We hope to see our old friends and make some new ones, too. See ya soon, Cheers!

Roger! news 8.23.13

 

Hello, Roger! fans.

 We had a great time on our mini-tour last weekend. LA and Scottsdale were so much fun. Extra special thanks to Doug Preston and Mister Lucky. Check out their site, great band. We hope to play more shows with them in AZ in the near future.

Also, we're about halfway done tracking our 2nd album, still untitled. Many thanks to Henrique at Studio West for being so accommodating. Aaron will be mixing and mastering it. On a sad note, Mike has decided to leave the band for personal reasons. We wish you luck, Mike. Pablo Garduno has stepped in on part time bass, splitting the show with Joel Shedroff. Pablo and myself have been co-writing some new tunes, as well. Our next show is Thurs, Sept 5th at The Riviera Supper Club, in La Mesa. Come on out and hear some new tunes!

Roger news 6.2.13

 

Hello, Roger! fans!

Just thought we'd give you an update on what we've been up to. Our southwest mini-tour was awesome. Many thanks to everyone who helped and/or let us crash at your pads. Special thanks to David Chavez for all his hard work in Albuquerque.

So, since the tour, we've recorded a few basic tracks at Studio West, in Ranch Bernardo, CA. We've decided to re-record 'Slicktender" and a few other tunes not on "Dark Matter." An EP with these tracks, plus a live track from the tour, is in the works. 

We're all involved in other projects, so that, and our busy lives, have kept us busy. Aaron and Josh play in a band called The Stircrazies, Joel and Ryan are in several cumbia/latin bands that play around SD pretty often, Candice fronts her own band, The Woebots, Mike is busy being a new dad and auditioning for funk/latin bands, and I play bass in my buddy Pablo's band...Alas de Mosca.

Taking all of this into consideration, we've been pretty productive the past few months. We've had a buddy, Daniel Lewis, shoot some live footage for our 1st video, "Slicktender." Hopefully that will come to fruition soon. 

New songs and more shows are the focus in the near future. We hope to venture north soon, and return to AZ, NM, TX soon, as well. Stay tuned!
