I hear Tony say it at every show: “This next one is a love song… about the apocalypse“. I take it as my que to count us in to Cities on Fire, a truly EPIC song that reminds us to fight for love. As an impending apocalypse may are may not be on the horizon, it never hurts to be prepared. To that extent, and most likely with only earthly bound vehicles at our disposal, it makes sense for everyone that wants to survive to learn HOW to survive by driving like a crazed yet controlled maniac. Sam Sheridan recently did just that and not only wrote a book about it Disaster Diaries: How I learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Apocalypse, but also a cool article on Jalopnik that you should definitely check out.
We just uploaded some pics to VISUALSof us from the show last Saturday in Waco. We had a blast sharing the stage with Orthodox Fuzz and HellGoat. Both bands are on top of their game and are a blast to see live. If you get a chance you should check them out for sure! Really a bunch of solid guys. We were honored to share the stage at Fast Eddie’s with them and look forward to the next time we can ROCK together!
Hey Martian Maniacs, we wanted to let you know we are still rockin. We’ve been playing gigs around Austin and out of town but we’re heading back to Red Eyed Fly on Feb. 16th to celebrate Tony and Space Viking Erik’s respective birthdays (before and after the 16th) it is going to RAGE!! We’ll have more details very soon!
We’re also building on our Martian empire with new tunes in the works as well as mapping our plan to dominate the Earth starting with Texas. As we travel outside of Austin and beyond the galaxy, be sure to check here as well as our more immediate feeds Deserts of Mars Facebook page and on Twitter. Tell your friends across the Universe!!! You’ll never miss an event if you follow us there!
Since Billy left to teach his daughter how to fight Rocktopi, we had to wait for the Curiosity Rover to do it’s real mission and find us a drummer. We’ve found the mighty Space Viking Erik Kinservik who thundered his way to our Martian home base and is now rocking the drums in DoM.
We’re playing November 23rd at Red Eyed Fly (our home base away from the home base) with an awesome lineup of bands!! Details Below:
Deserts of Mars returns from their home base with a new drummer and more rock than ever! Forget Black Friday… We’re turning it to the new post holiday: RED FRIDAY!
