Twisted To The End

Hello everybody and welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official Blog of 3D In Your Face and The Midnight Devils.  What's happening this week?  Sorry I missed last weeks blog.  Things just got a bit out of control with Thanksgiving.  The Midnight Devils hit the road pretty hard over the holiday weekend and I didn't get a chance to sit down and write to you fine fine people.  Things are looking very promising for the few weeks leading up to the new year.  We have a lot of show bookings starting to come in.  Next week we head to Des Moines, IA on Saturday, Dec. 10th for a Krazy1 Promotions big Rock n Roll party at The Fremont Bar with LyinHeart, Herman and the Hulks, and The Astrobastards.  We are still looking for a show for Friday, Dec. 9th.  If anyone can help us out with a place to play or can point us in the right direction for a show that we would really appreciate it.  As for this weekend we are taking a quick break and then back on board the Rock n Roll roller coaster until 2017.  Most importantly right now is the brand new music video for the 3D In Your Face single "Baptized by the Radio" from our latest album Lost in the Volume.  Click HERE!.  We are so very proud of this new music video and we would like to thank Jeremy Partridge for all the amazing work he does on our music videos.  Our goal is to hit 10,000 views by 2017 and we can't do that without your help.  Please like, share, and spread this video around the Internet.  This video is for you the one and only reason we do everything we do.  We hope you enjoy.

I have to say things are going very well.  I believe the shows are getting better and The Midnight Devils are become a natural cohesive unit.  We did our first lengthy road trip last weekend to Topeka, KS and it was all dick and fart jokes for three hours in the van.  That's a good sign that a band is happy.  We arrived in town early and met up with the head of security at The Boobie Trap Bar, John.  Now we were told by the owner that John had a hair metal museum in his basement that we just had to see.  Turns out John's basement looks a lot similar to our homes back in Nebraska.  Every wall was covered with show memorabilia, KISS merch, vinyl album covers.  We became instant friends.  I've said this from day one but there is an amazing glam rock/sleaze metal community spread out over the entire world and the moment you get two or more of the in a room it becomes family real fast.  John's basement is called The Twisted Diamond and for any band traveling through the Topeka area it's a destination not to be missed.  From that moment I knew we were going to have a fun night at Topeka surely did not disappoint.  We met some amazing people that will stick in my mind forever.

I'm a firm believer that people come in and out of your life for a reason.  There is no coincidence.  Through 3D In Your Face and The Midnight Devils we have gotten the chance to meet some absolutely wonderful people.  People I call friends and people I call family.  That's the best part about this job is that we get the opportunity to travel and see our friends from the other side of the country on a regular basis.  I have so many great memories and I know we are going to make so many more this year.  I am thankful for each and every person that has taken a chance on our band and I definitely don't take any of this lightly.  If our lives cross paths, for better or for worse, it was worth every second.  Rock n roll is just the tip of the iceberg.  It's the glue that holds us all together and inevitably gets us all high.  Rock n roll music saved my life.  Last week I celebrated 6 years of clean sober living.  I couldn't have done it without my bands, without my family, and without you people.  I won't get into the gory details but 6 years ago I was a wreck and headed one place really fast.  I was given a second chance at life and I made a pact with myself to live especially loud, if you get my drift.  Easier said than done.  It's been a lot of work and I still have to take it one day at a time but through rock n roll music I have had the chance to experience things I only could dream of when I was on the booze.  I'm definitely no saint but I am thankful that I've gotten the chance to make another run at it.  Most of all I'm extremely thankful for the people that have come into my life because of this crazy roller coaster ride.  In the end it makes it all worth it.
