New Mexico based sludge metal warriors OLD MAN GLOOM have explained a hilarious miscommunication between the promoters of SOUTHWEST TERROR FEST 2016 and said band..
SOUTHWEST TERROR FEST is set to take place 10/20-23/2016 , Tuscon, Arizona @ CLUB CONGRESS.
OLD MAN GLOOM unleashed "THE APE OF GOD", 11/11/2014 via PROFOUND LORE RECORDS.
FROM OLD MAN GLOOM:
So here's a good one.
An unnamed festival, let's just call it "blouth blest blerror blest" got very far in the booking process to get old man gloom, and through a series of hilarious miscommunications, our booking agent thought they were inquiring about Sumac. When they realized a miscommunication had occurred, they tried to switch gears, only to realize we're far more expensive than Sumac. (I mean, come on. Those dudes are good, but you get what you pay for.) So they stuck with Sumac.
Needless to say, we think this is amazing. I probably shouldn't be rubbing it in, but it's just too good to keep "in house".
FROM SOUTH WEST TERROR FEST 2016:
It has come to our attention that a band from New Mexico, let's just call them "Mold Sham Doom" has recently released a statement about some booking actions with their "agent" (at least that's what he calls himself) that they happen to share with Sumac. Just to clarify, we always intended to book Sumac (obvs the better band) and during negotiations, even after the "agent" begged repeatedly (and tearfully, but that's another long post), we just weren't interested in booking this "side project" of Sumac. (I mean, have you heard this band? Most of it sounds like a homeless guy shouting at another homeless guy throwing trash cans around an alley at 4am.) Needless to say, we're pretty embarrassed about all this whole situation, especially after patiently explaining this to the "agent" time and time again. But you know, sometimes when you deal with agents, it's like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter how good you are, they're just going to knock all the pieces over and shit on the board. We hope this clears up any confusion with this matter. Thanks for your patience and understanding, everyone!
FROM OLD MAN GLOOM:
Adorable. These guys obviously took my online course "how to talk shit like old man gloom 101". Obviously They didn't pass their final. Honestly I think they took the course just to meet obscure bands with confusing logos. Mission accomplished, dudes! Line up this year is siiiiiiiiick! Put us down for 2018, when we're on the downswing from our current popularity boom.
Thanks-Stay Metal, Stay Brutal-\m/ -l-
