Coming to your city?

We get a lot of requests from people saying things like "please come to _____" or "why don't you ever play _____?" So, due to the high volume of such messages and comments and e-mails, I figured I would shed a bit of light into how this whole process goes.

First off, anywhere in the world we can come and play music is a place we want to be. But unfortunately, the world doesn't work that way. Promoters choose who to bring to their cities. Without those promoters, none of these shows would ever happen. But one must remember, these promoters aren't just music fans, they're businessmen. As much of a pity as it is, a promoter has no reason to bring a band to their city if no one is going to come see them. Let's be honest, would you invest your own money into putting on a show you weren't confident you could at best break even on? Probably not.

So how do promoters know who to sink their money into? They find out from YOU! You are the people who drive the business, you are the people who come to the shows. You are the people they depend on to make their events a success. So as much as we love hearing about how badly you want us in your city, make sure to tell your local DJ as well. Tell him to spin our music, tell him how much you'd love to see us in your town. Tell promoters if you know them and tell your friends to do the same. We will be back out on the road sooner than you think, and we'd be more than happy to come to your city!

Welcome :: All Beauty Destroyed

Welcome to the new blog. I've felt pretty overwhelmed recently trying to maintain so many social networking platforms. Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, VampireFreaks... the list just goes on and on. In the end, we will be working to consolidate all updates, info and goodies into one hub, www.aesthetic-perfection.net. So while there will indeed be updates made across these many profiles, the official website should be considered the one stop shop for Aesthetic Perfection goodness.

Now, I know what you might be thinking, "this is a blogger blog, it's not really tied to the AP site". Well, technically you're right but just bite your lip and let it go. The "blog" link on the website brings you directly here, so we're headed in the right direction. Baby steps.

More importantly this blog will be documenting the recording and production of the upcoming Aesthetic Perfection record entitled "All Beauty Destroyed". I'll be updating this fairly frequently with pictures, thoughts and perhaps some other stuff. I won't be posting any demo's, though. Why? Well, I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise, would I?
