It's My Blog I Will Say What I Want. KISS In The Rock N Roll Hall of Fame.

HA HA HA HAIR IN THE AIR!  Welcome back all you Rock N Roll junkies to Hair In The Air, The Official blog of 3D In Your Face.  What a wild last few weeks we have had here in our little metal world.  If your just joining us, on Dec. 6th 3D In Your Face released our 4th studio record "Midnight Devils".  The new album is available via iTunes, eBay, and at every show.  I have been on a non-stop promotional tour and I have made some amazing new friends along the way.  Before we get going I want to thank all those people that have stood by this record, thanks for buying our music, thanks for the great interviews, and thanks for listening to me talk.  And a very special thank you goes to you for reading this blog.  I feel as if this blog has become an exclusive Rock N Roll club.  Even though everyone is invited to read only the pure at heart actually take the time.  Thank you.
 This Fri. Dec 20th and Saturday Dec. 21st "Midnight Devils" release show in Kearney, NE

That being said I want to bring up something that doesn't really effect 3D In Your Face directly.  If you have been living under a rock for the last few days you might not have heard that KISS has been nominated to be inducted into the rock n roll hall of fame.  Now KISS being my all time favorite band you would think news like this makes me happy.  Actually quite the opposite.  I am happy that the band got the nod but really when has the approval of anyone ever meant anything to a true KISS fan.  KISS was the band that brought me into this world of Rock N Roll.  I heard "Detroit Rock City" and I knew right then and there what I wanted to do with my life.  I always thought it was pretty cool that KISS was so loud and abrasive that the rock n roll hall of fame wanted nothing to do with this band.  For me KISS represented anti-establishment, KISS was true freedom.  When I was growing up girls in high school wouldn't date me because I wore KISS t-shirts everyday to class.  I was different and misunderstood but in this thing called Rock N Roll I knew that I wasn't alone. For some reason that still blows my mind today, people at Fremont High School didn't think KISS was as cool as I did.

Now today Dec. 17th somebody up a decided that yeah KISS is cool and they should join the ranks of ABBA and Madonna in The Hall.  I think this is pure blasphemy not to mention they share their nomination with Nirvana.  Come on all our 16 year-old selves are foaming at the mouth right now.  KISS doesn't need some Hall of fame to let people know that they are and always will be "The Hottest Band On Earth".  KISS has always been about the fans.  The KISS Army has always stood behind the underdog, the misfits, and the misunderstood.  Now everyone has been asking me if I have "heard the news".  Hell yes I heard the news, but I don't like the thought of some jack-off at The Rock N Roll Hall of Fame telling me what band is worthy of being apart of their club.  (Sorry Mom) FUCK YOU ROCK N ROLL HALL OF FAME.  If you think I am being a little overzealous about this, you may be right. I like KISS today equally if not more than I did when I first heard "Detroit Rock City".  My apartment is still covered in KISS posters and paraphernalia. In my sweat opinion KISS has always been bigger than The Hall and it's members.  KISS inspired the youth and that is something that can't be measured by votes or record sales.

This Friday Dec. 20th and Saturday Dec. 21st we are making a nice little pre-Christmas road to trip to our home away from home.  We are playing a special two night CD release party at Shooters in Kearney, NE.  For all you western Nebraska Rock N Roll fanatics out there this will be your chance to pick up a signed copy of our new album "Midnight Devils".  The show has changed since the last time we traveled to Kearney.  We have new songs, new clothes, and old school attitudes.  I hope you are ready for a wild two nights because baby I could use a good road trip.  See you all real soon.

Also thanks to DJ Sexy Rocker Chick for the great interview.  I will be doing interviews Wednesday morning at 9:45 AM on 94 Rock Norfolk, Thursday afternoon with KLPR Kearney, and Thursday night with Mistress of Metal.  Also look for a write up about this weekends shows in The Kearney Hub.

Always Loud
Forever Proud

Midnight Devils Super Fail. Happy Birthday Hot Rod.

Hello everybody and welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official blog of 3D In Your Face.  What a stellar week.  If you have been living under a rock for the last week you might not have heard that we have officially released our brand new album "Midnight Devils".  After two long years of writing, recording, and touring we have finally put out the album we have always wanted.  "Midnight Devils" was released on Dec. 6th at The 21st Saloon.  The new album is 12 songs of straight ahead, honest, kick-you-in-the-teeth Rock N Roll.  Last week we launched the album and before I get into this weeks blog I want to thank everyone that came out to our release show.  I want to thank everyone that had a part in the making of this new disc.  Thank you to our friends and family for listening to rough demos, unmixed demos, un-mastered demos, recording sessions, art work sessions and everything else that goes into making a new album.  This was honestly one of the most stressful things I have ever done and I am so happy to be releasing this music to the world.  Most importantly I want to thank the 3D In Your Face fans all over the world for always being there and supporting us no matter what.  Now it's your turn to hear the real story behind the new album.
Friday, Dec. 13th Hot Rod's Birthday Celebration at The 21st Saloon. 

Let me take you back to Thursday Dec. 5th 2013.  The day before the album release show our Sound Engineer Troy Way sent picture texts to everyone in the band (except The Playboy, don't ask), letting us know that the new CD's had arrived in the mail.  We knew we were going to be cutting it close but this was tight.  I raced through my radio show HAIR IN THE AIR on The Big O 101.9 and headed over to the production shop to finally get a glimpse of our baby.  As I walked in I gazed upon 5 boxes full of 250 CD's apiece.  If you have never seen 1,000 CD's with your face on the cover, it's quite the visual to take in.  Troy and I cracked the first disc and examined every inch of the artwork for roughly an hour.  Let me tell you I was on cloud nine.  I grabbed a box and headed to rehearsal.  At the 3D studios Hot Rod and I marveled at the art work.  Soon The Playboy and Sniper rolled in.  We were all ecstatic.  Then someone asked if we had put the disc in a player just to make sure it worked.  Why would we?  I have heard the songs 1,000 times.  So Hot Rod puts the disc in the CD player and none of us can believe what is coming out of the speakers.  COUNTRY MUSIC.  Our hearts sunk.  The disc manufacturers put a 6 song country bands music on our brand new Rock N Roll record.  I was hit with what seemed like a panic attack.  Sniper just started laughing.  What could we do.  We were now the proud owners of 1,000 3D In Your Face CD's with country music on the flip side of the disc.  It seemed like the longest night I have ever lived.  The next morning Hot Rod got on the horn and had 100 limited edition CD's made up by a local manufacturer to cover us for the launch party.  Looking back now I find it one of the most Spinal Tap things to ever happen to a band.  The original manufacturer cover all the expense and is producing the right 1,000 CD's for our winter tour.  If you could only imagine the phone calls that happened that night.  I took a video of Sniper demoing the album for you.  I held on to it because I figured down the line this would be a great watch and I was totally right.  Check it out.  This is right in the thick of our panic the night before the "Midnight Devils" launch.

This Friday, Dec. 13th we are back at The 21st Saloon to celebrate The Man, The Myth, The Legends birthday.  Our beloved lead singer Alan 'Hot Rod' King will be celebrating another year of melting faces and destroying souls.  We are throwing one hell of a birthday celebration and we are inviting each and everyone of you to the party.  For you musically inclined people out there are bringing in our good friend DJ Steve to do 80's ROCK N ROLL karaoke during our breaks.  I have now been in a band with Hot Rod for 9 years and I am thankful everyday that I decided to join up with this Rock N Roll circus.  Come out and celebrate not only Hot Rod but 3D In Your Face.  Don't forget to pick up a copy of our new album "Midnight Devils" available via iTunes, eBay, and our merchandise table.
