Hey Scorched fans! Sorry we haven’t posted an update in a while but we have been hard at work on a new album for you! We are making some really great progress on an amazing, full length, studio LP. In many ways this album is bringing the Scorched to a whole new level! Seriously guys, the magic that is happening in the studio right now is incredible, and a lot of it has to do with the owner of this amazing studio, and new member of the Scorched, Sam Rasmussen! Sam is a Berklee College of Music graduate and sound engineer, who can play incredible piano, as well as other instruments. Sam is an amazing guy as well and the meld with the band just came natural; he just fit. So, keep a look out for Sam on stage playing scorching keyboard, as well as bass and guitar when needed!
A little about the album: without giving too much away, we are really focusing on bringing our songs to the next level with this album. We are digging deep into our roots of Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd to bring you guys an album that will take you on a journey and make you wanna listen over and over. Honestly, we are really pushing ourselves on this one. Our whole goal is to give you guys something unique, powerful, emotional, and truly the Scorched. Something that is OUR sound. Hopefully we will be releasing a single for you guys this fall and have the album finished by the end of the year, beginning of next. We will keep you updated! What we have so far is very exciting, and you will see what we mean on our next couple of shows!
Speaking of shows, here is our current fall show list:
September 16 – Chopper Johns F*** Cancer Benefit Show, Phoenix (Great Cause, Great Local Showcase, and gonna be one heck of a good time!)
September 19 – Rips Bar, Phoenix with Robot Jurassic (These guys are from the east coast and they are incredible! You don’t want to miss this show!)
