YSLAR Updates: September ’12

Those of you who made it to Dragon*Con this weekend… I am jealous! It looks like it was quite a wild time. That would be the dancers from The Crüxshadows putting Nathaniel Johnstone and Steven Archer, half of Ego Likeness, in their places while Donna Lynch, the other half, watches disapprovingly. Or approvingly? It’s difficult [...]

VIDEO: The Crüxshadows, “Valkyrie” (Live at Dragon*Con 2011)

I usually spend the whole month of August posting about the different bands attending Dragon*Con. However, I am unable to attend this weekend for the first time in almost ten years! So I decided to take this month off from that. I do want to bring your attention to the new release by The Crüxshadows [...]

MP3: The Crüxshadows, “Anmi’s Christmas (Red, Green, Silver, & Gold)”

So do you want to hear a new Christmas song? Like… an actual original song that we haven’t been hearing for sixty years every December (and November lately, ugh)? Well The Crüxshadows have delivered a new song not to be missed. I know, it’s exciting. “Anmi’s Christmas (Red, Green, Silver, & Gold)” is an original [...]

MP3: The Crüxshadows, “Resist/R”

On yesterday’s date, August 28, in the year of 1963 on the steps of the Lincoln Monument in Washington D.C. Martin Luther King Jr. made one of the most memorable speeches in modern American history. He had a dream. It seems like a good time to post one of my favorite tracks from Dragon*Con regulars [...]

NEWS: The Cruxshadows Victims Of Theft

It really irks me when things like this happen to good people. The Crüxshadows recently returned to the States from their three month European tour. Unfortunately, their return marked a devastating loss for the band. While in New York City, shortly after landing, the guys and girls decided to stop for a bit of sushi. [...]

MP3: Sapphire Rebellion, “Satellite”

The Tallahassee based Sapphire Rebellion consists of frontman Tim Curry, bassist Jason Palmer, and Jay Godin on drums. Their darkwave sound has been garnering the band a bit of attention since their formation. You may recognize Tim Curry as a former guitarist of The Crüxshadows. After helping establish the band on their earlier albums and [...]

VIDEO: The Cruxshadows, “Quicksilver”

I woke up this morning to news of the highly anticipated new music video from The Crüxshadows being released. The video is for their latest single, “Quicksilver”, and after watching it I can honestly say it kicks ass. Remember when The Crüxshadows got shafted by Billboard after the initial release of the “Quicksilver” single at [...]

MP3: The Crüxshadows, “Avalanche”

This post is intended to serve two purposes. Firstly, The Crüxshadows. They are awesome. They have a new single out and you should all check it out. I also wanted to share a cool music site with all of you called ReverbNation. While supporting their new single, “Quicksilver”, The Crüxshadows have launched a new online [...]

REVIEW: Dragon*Con 2009

So Dragon*Con has once again come and gone. This year was a blast. I got to see a lot of cool shows, meet a lot of cool people, and… well… probably a lot more stuff that I can’t even remember. The first night of the convention is technically the day before the thing even starts! [...]

VIDEO: The Crüxshadows, “Quicksilver [Live at Summer Darkness '09]“

No Dragon*Con would be the same without The Crüxshadows present. Luckily, this year is no exception. The touring juggernauts are taking a break from their European tour to come play and hang out at the convention all weekend. The Crüxshadows are currently touring in support of their latest single Quicksilver, to be released in the [...]
