Horror and Metal (and other stuff Tony does)

So, it’s October and while we’re getting ready for our show on November 15th, we wanted to share some of the other stuff Tony does. Currently he is part of the group that does the Castle of Horror Podcast (available on Stitcher and iTunes as well as other places) with Jason Henderson (with whom he co-wrote Psy-Comm and Clockwerx), Drew Edwards who writes Halloween Man, and Julia Guzman. As part of that, Tony is going to be doing reports for the podcast at the Housecore Horror Filmfestival which combines his love of metal and horror movies. To kick things of he did an interview with Jordan Gaw of Final Drive on his favorite episodes of the podcast and what horror he digs/is looking forward to.

Big News! New Members, New Show!!

Big news for Deserts of Mars! After braving all manner of cosmic anomalies early this year, the galaxies have aligned and we want to welcome new members Liao Hsien-Hsiu on guitar and Morgan Faber on drums.
We’ve been holed up in our bunker on Mars getting ready to rock some Mars Metal, and now we have a date for the debut of DoM 4.0 playing the stage with the mighty Mothership along with a KILLER lineup you will not want to miss thanks to American Icon Records (A.I.R)!!!
We hope to see you there to rock out and welcome the new guys on our interstellar journey!

The Rock(topuss) will not stop!

Hi Martian Maniacs,
Tony here with an update, because it’s been a while. This year we have been ravaged by solar flares, fought Rocktopi, and weathered all manner of cosmic mishaps. Earlier in the year we had a lineup change and the past few months have been spent scouring the landscape of Mars and the rest of solar system for a guitarist and bassist to fill the mighty space suits of our former members. The new members are now ready for new interstellar adventure and we will be filling you in more on that very soon. We just wanted to say thanks again for all of your support and hope to see you soon as we spread the Mars Metal throughout the universe once more.
In the meantime, always remember you can get our album for “pay what you can” on our bandcamp page:
and through Cdbaby and our awesome friends at Ozium Records for physical copies. We are also streaming on every service that digs Mars Metal.
