Roadrunner Sign goneblind
Posted on February 12, 2008Ladies and gentlemen, welcome the hardest working band in the business, goneblind. Hailing from Houston, TX, the band has spent the past three years touring the US - on their own accord and dime.Three years ago also happens to be the same time when Roadrunner A&R Rep Ron Burman started taking notice. At the annual SXSW festival in Austin, TX, Ron saw the band for the first time. Though some songs were in place, Ron tells that at the time something was missing.
Fast forward three years, late 2001, to a goneblind show at Arlene Grocery in NYC. "They fuckin' smoked," Ron states. "Fuckin' blew me away." And so it is, Roadrunner's latest band in the family, goneblind.
John Curry - vocals and guitar
Mitch Burman - bass
Marc Archer - drums
Artie Rincon - guitar
Description of the band? Hear for yourself - in our downloads section you will find an MP3 file of their song "Reminder", a demo recorded back in August 2001 in Orlando, Florida. For you tech guys out there, this demo was recorded on a lil' Roland 2480.
goneblind, welcome aboard.
