Fly2Void Album Release Show and Miracles for Mirika

  • Print

A couple of gents from a band called Fly2Void stopped by the studio this morning. You might be familiar with a few of their tunes that we used to play on the ol’ radio speakers here at The X. The band just released their first album in 11 years, but “This Time Around” things are a bit different. The guys have all grown up and so has their music. This album is a collective creation that best suits each band member and represents the band as a whole. Although the new disc was mixed by Jay Baumgarder of Papa Roach and Sevendust fame and mastered by Tom Baker (Beastie Boys, NIN), Fly2Void wrote, created and produced it all on their own terms. No record labels or studios riding them, demanding how to formulate each song. No limitations. Just four friends creating some tunes and enjoying it along the way. Find out more about that in the full audio version of the interview right here. You can check out the album, "Take On The World" on iTunes and Spotify, or even pick up a copy at The Record Exchange. Catch the boys tonight as they celebrate the release of the new album at The Knitting Factory in Boise. The Fav and Actual Depiction are set to open the show, which starts at 7:30PM (Doors @ 6:30PM). Need tickets? The band will give them to you for FREE right here.

We also had another guest pop by this morning. A great guy by the name of Ryan Sigman joined the show to chat about a very, very important cause called “Miracles for Mirika.” This is a such a heartbreaking story. You can find out more by clicking here and also check out the full audio from the interview with Ryan right here. Please, please do anything you can to help them out. Here’s how you can contribute:

RoCk WaRs!

RoCk   WaRs

Nic - II    Big J - I

Monday - Happy Birthday Peter Loeffler! Hard to pick a favorite Chevelle song which is probably why there was a tie between Anj's choice of The Clincer and Big J's choice of Send the Pain Below. Tie it is.  

Tuesday -  Songs that could use subtitles that make sense?  The tie goes to Nic with his choice of Pearl Jam Yellow Leadbetter although Big J's choice of Static X Cannibal was just as inaudiable.

Wednesday -  Happy Birthday Spike Jones!  Thank You for the awesome videos you gave us. Today's rock war ends in yet ANOTHER TIE.  Nic's choice of Tenacious D Wonderboy beats Big J's choice of Beastie Boys Sabotage.  Hard to chose for sure but somebody has to come out victorious. 

Thursday -  Reality shows are everywhere!  What band would you tune in to watch week after week?  Big J wins with All that Remains Stand up beating Nic's Puddle of Mudd Give me Shelter choice. 

Friday - In honor of Mark Zuckerberg delivering a speech in Chinese we will war with bilingual songs. Big J's Romstein America beats out  Nic's Beck Loser.
