Hi. We hope your new year is going as planned. We’ve got some exciting news for you: we will be officially releasing our Great Western EP on February 7th! It will be available on our official website, iTunes, and every other digital retailer. We will also have hard copies available at live shows for you CD enthusiasts. We will be celebrating the release of the EP in Salt Lake City with a live performance at Diabolical Records. Check our “shows” section for details. Perhaps you should get excited?
Hey everyone, Happy Holidays! Just wanted to give a quick update on whats going on with the band etc. Hard copies of the new Great Western EP have arrived, and they are burning a proverbial hole in our pocket. We can’t wait to share these new songs with you. The whole process of recording these songs was a blast, and I think you can feel a certain raw energy in them. They were recorded in a studio loft in downtown Los Angeles in 2.5 days by our friend Jon Siebels, and we think he did a masterful job.
The songs will be available digitally as well, but if you want higher quality versions, I would suggest purchasing a CD when they are available. Having listened to both versions personally, I have a hard time listening to the mp3′s after listening to the CD version. This concludes my little Public Service Announcement. To each their own! The official release date of the new EP will be announced soon, and we plan on holding a CD release show for you Utahn’s. For those of you who contributed to our EP fundraiser a few months ago, you will receive your CD and other other items within the next few days. That’s all we’ve got for now. Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays. We will see you in 2015!
Hey all, hope you are doing wonderfully. We are pleased to announce that our new “Great Western EP” is finished. We had a ball recording this thing in 3 days in Los Angeles with our pal Jon Siebels (Eve 6, Flybys) and we are looking forward to sharing it with you soon. We feel like each release is a little better than the last, and this one is no different. In our humble opinion, this our best work yet, and we think you will be pleased with the results. Stay informed on the official release date. For those of you that contributed to the album fundraiser, you will receive the new EP in advance. In addition to this wonderful news, we will be performing at an album release show this month in SLC for our friends Secret Abilities. Check our “shows” section for details. That’s it for now. If you wanna go even further in this friendship, you can always follow us on twitter: @mgstatuettes , Facebook , Instagram: mgstatuettes , and youtube: mgstatuettes. Have a lovely November!
Hey everyone. Happy autumn etc. Thank you to those who contributed to our album fundraiser this past month. You have helped make it possible for us to record the new songs without us having to go into debt. We are grateful for your contributions and are very excited to record the new tracks this month in Los Angeles. We will keep you updated on the recording progress and look forward to releasing this thing soon. You can also catch us live a couple of times this month if you so choose. Rumor has it that you can pick up a brand new limited edition Statuettes t-shirt while supplies last. Check our “shows” section to see where we will be. As always, you can find us on facebook, twitter, youtube, and even instagram (mgstatuettes). Cheers!
Hey everyone, the time has come. We have officially launched our fundraising campaign to record the new 6-song album. We hope to begin recording in October, so we will be running the campaign for the entire month of September. Just go to www.thestatuettes.com and click on the blue “donate to the statuettes” box. It will take you to the page that explains this whole ordeal (with a video) and shows you the various gifts that we are offering in return for your kind donation. We are really excited about these new tunes, and we think you will dig them too. No filler, just killer (or something like that.) Please spread the word and help us make this new release possible. You are why we exist. Cheers!
Hey friends. Hope your summer has been swell so far. We have been continuing work on new tunes for our next release. It’s looking like it’s shaping up to be about 6 songs, with a bonus 6 acoustic versions of the same songs available to VIP’s. We are in the process of putting together a fundraiser where you can help make this all possible. More details to come soon. In the meantime, check out another live demo version of one of the new tunes titled “Oh Please”. Copy and paste this link: https://soundcloud.com/michaelgrossmusic/oh-please-live-demo That’s all for now. Stay cool!
Happy July everybody. In honor of America’s birthday, the band will be performing a special and FREE show this month on July 17th at the Draper Amphitheater in Draper, UT. This is a community event that is open to all ages. The Statuettes will perform at 8pm, and will then be followed by a screening of The Lego Movie. Yes, The Lego Movie. I honestly don’t see how you could lose here. These hot summer nights are about to get a little hotter. Bring your family, bring your friends, and bring a gun. Well…maybe not the gun.
Draper Amphitheater (Draper, Utah)
July 17th @ 8pm
FREE SHOW followed by The Lego Movie
The band has also been continuing their work on new songs, and hope to start recording them late this summer, or early this fall. Here is a link to a live demo of one of the new songs: https://soundcloud.com/michaelgrossmusic/sooner-or-later-demo
Hope to see you at the show! Cheers!
Hey all, summer is kicking off and we couldn’t be happier. Lot’s of cool stuff coming up in the coming months including A NEW RECORD. We will be busy the rest of June hashing out the new songs and prepping them for recording later in the summer. We may need your help to help make this happen, so we will keep you posted on how you can help if you so choose. After all, we are all in this together right? Maybe? You get the idea. At any rate, have a fun summer, and stay cool.
Hi. We’ve been working on some new songs, and we hope to play them for you sometime soon. We like ‘em, but then again we’re the band, so I guess it doesn’t really count. We are thinking about releasing an EP or something soon. It’s the least we could do I suppose. If you’ve been meaning to catch us live, we will be performing with some other locals on June 1st at The Urban Lounge in Salt Lake City. You should come. I mean it. We also uploaded a new YouTube video on our YouTube channel about our last rehearsal in Jimmy’s jewelry store. It contains a performance by three of us of one of our new songs. That’s a lot of “of’s”. You can check it out here: www.youtube.com/mgstatuettes
Have a good month!
Hi. It’s April. We had a really fun show with Miniature Tigers on the first day of this month in Salt Lake City. If you haven’t heard of them before, head on over to google and type in their name. It could change things for you. If you missed it, you can catch us again soon. We promise. Lastly, we’ve also added a few new photo’s from the Miniature Tigers show in our “photo’s” section of the website. Give er’ a look! Stay real.
