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
https://www.facebook.com/castleofhorrorpodcast (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 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!
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 http://www.oziumrecords.com/shop/details/953 for physical copies. We are also streaming on every service that digs Mars Metal.
Thanks to all the Martian Maniacs, clubs and promoters that made 2013 such a great year. We appreciate every CD and T-shirt purchase, download, listen, video view, handshake, headbang, and photo taken. We couldn’t do this without you. We hope to see you all over the the universe in 2014 with new tunes and at new venues. Be sure to rock out this New Year and be safe. We want to see you in 2014 rockin out with us!!! Best wishes and thanks!

Here are a few videos a Martian Maniac (a fan) captured at our Beerland show in Austin, Texas. We love it when people take pictures or video’s at our shows and send them our way so we can share them with you. We super excited to close out this year at Red Eyed Fly on December 28th (9:30pm) rocking with all of you! Check out the videos and let us know what you think.
FYI: The audio quality isn’t the greatest, in fact you might want to start the first video at 00:01:38 where the audio improves a bit. If anyone would like to help us film a show and capture some good audio with it let us know!
