Our first official Video!! (courtesy of Yukoh Films)

Hey Martian Maniacs!! It has been a while and we wanted give you and update on the state of Mars Metal. This past year or so has been akin to a mashup of “The Martian” and “Spinal Tap” mixed with a bit of “Apollo 13”. Never fear, Morgan and I have been writing as a 2 piece and while the sound is shaping to be a bit different than the DoM of the past, it is still always going to be Mars Metal – (Heavy, spacey, groovey, growly, and melodic, the only way we know how).

And now, we have our first video courtesy Maximiliano Contenti of Yukoh Films. Max is an all-around cool person that I met when he screened his film “High Five” (Relocos Y Repasados) and we hit it off, sharing a love of music and film. Over time he made this hard rockin’ video, which we hope that you love as much as we do. It’s certainly fueling OUR overdrive engines! Check it out and spread the word!! We hope to see you back on Earth in 2017!!! -Tony

First off we have an impromptu show at Red Eyed Fly on January 17th. It’s an early 8:30 show, but show up early because they start ON TIME!! We’re sad that it’s the end of an era for REF and our good friend Mike Boudreau is moving on to other endeavors. Red Eyed Fly was our first home away from the Red Planet and we are glad to be there to Rock it out in style.

On January 31st we are playing with our friends Final Drive on their No Exit Tour. If you haven’t checked out their new album, you need to do this ASAP! Heaviness will be brought, and there might even be a new tune in the mix…..

On Feb. 20th we celebrating Tony’s Birthday a little early at The Lost Well with our heavy friends Deguello (and more TBA). This one is sure to rule!! Thanks to Dusty at Wounded Earth Booking!!! This one is going RAGE!!
