Title: SUFFERSURGE
Post by: FXD on November 22, 2007, 06:59:00 PM
....is looking for a guitar player. Our main focus with this "reunion" is to record the pre "guitar player who quit to become a BAC and ruined everything" material that we wrote. We are heavy basic groove metal, no arithmatic or astrophysics type riffs, just your basic meat and potatoes heavy as shit tunes. We will do shows again, to knock off the rust but the main goal is to record. For an idea of the shit PM me and I'll send you some shit.

Hardly anybody knows this, but there used to be Suffersurge tracks hidden within Saskmetal, I wish Brent didn't take them down...

Well SM was originaly Suffersurges guest book. When we broke up Brent turned the guest book into the first SM forum so thats not surprising......Bre nt can be quite mischivious.

I'll haul gear if you pay me in Myung lessons.

If I didn't know who John Myung was, that'd sound awfully dirty. But no matter what way you look at it, you have yourself a deal!!

I'm pretty excited about this project, Suffersurge was one of my favourite Regina bands.  I look forward to learning the old Surge tunes and writing some new songs and performing them live.

It was fun playing those songs, and even though I'm the new guy, it felt like old times.  I don't think it's going to take us very long to get those songs honed to perfection.

 RFT5 - The Return of Rock For Telemiracle (The Exchange Jan 25/26)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE PRAIRIE PROPHET SPEAKS! After a year hiatus Rock 4 Telemiracle is returning with 2 shows and 8 bands to give you a whole lot of music for a good cause.

Bands that have confirmed with me are Psymatik, Stillseed, The Fifth Dawn, Chemical Horizon, and the return of Suffersurge!  Tickets will be available in the 1st week of January from Giltees for sure, other locations will be announced as well.

More details to come, including the final lineup and who plays on what days, ticket prices, show times and all that fun stuff.

As with the previous installments of RFT, all proceeds for these shows (after costs of venue rental and sound) will go to Telemiracle this year.  In the past I've always presented the moneys to them during the showing, but don't know if a trip to 'toon is in the books this year.  I suppose that really doesn't matter.

A thanks in advance to the help from anyone who has/will be helping with this event, to the bands who have agreed to donate their time and talent, and of course to anyone who shows up to support this great cause.

I'm looking forward to these shows very much so, hope to see as many people out there as possible!

I don't think I'm nearly as funny or dead as Mr. Hedberg but I'd gladly contribute a solo or two to a future Cupcake recording.


Title: Re: SUFFERSURGE
Post by: diamondbanger on June 24, 2008, 03:56:40 PM
How coincidental that a brand new tube fries the day we start our break.  Hopefully it was just a bum tube...  the other option could be pricey.


Title: Re: SUFFERSURGE
Post by: FXD on June 24, 2008, 05:42:02 PM
Ya, new tube amps ARE pricy....heh.


Title: Re: SUFFERSURGE
Post by: diamondbanger on July 09, 2008, 09:50:12 PM
It looks like I'll be out of commission till at least July 25th...  sometime after I get back from Whelan Bay I'll get the amp fixed.  For now I'll just pick up a tube and hope it was just a bum tube.  If the amp is fuckered, I got a zoom 505 or a MT-2 kicking around that can work in a pinch.
Hope you guys are enjoying the break...  I'm not...  way too much home renos for me.  Flooring, finishing carpentry, painting, mudding and there's probably a plumbing job..


Title: Re: SUFFERSURGE
Post by: FXD on July 10, 2008, 12:16:15 AM
no worries, enjoy the break!


Title: Re: SUFFERSURGE

Post by: Chad on August 18, 2008, 08:06:08 AM
Update:

Suffersurge is now a 5-piece.  We picked up a second guitarist by the name of Chad Chapman a few weeks ago.  Things are going really well...and we hope to be hitting the stage soon.  There are also plans to get us in the studio in November...more on that later.

I was browzing through and figured I'd post an update here.

Suffersurge is still around, we've just been out of the live scene for awhile.  Jon got his kidney transplant back in June, which required some much needed recovery time, and, Chapman had wrist surgery at the end of the summer to correct the botched wrist surgery he had last year.  We've been rehearsing and writing new material and should be ready to hit the stage by the end of January.  Contact us if you need a band for a show...we're itching to play again.
