George GT Stergiou: Gibson Day

Gibson Day is a Gibson promotional day which runs on the last weekend of every month. On this day you can play Gibson guitars in selected Gibson Authorized shops across the Globe and put your name down on a list in order to win a Gibson guitar as a prize. The first 25 entries in this prize draw get a free Gibson t-shirt as well.

It’s the last weekend of October and the sun is shinning up in London sky. So we grabbed the opportunity to jump in the car with Mr. & Mrs. Hot and head to the Wembley Guitar Centre which is located just 5 minutes walk from Wembley Stadium.

Apart from the Gibson Day we were surprised of how big and well stocked this place was. The people who work there are very helpful and ready to give you any piece of detailed information that you acquire for any instrument or piece of gear & equipment that they have. Great job and thumbs up to these guys. more

“My new CD is a little different than my previous few releases,” explains Todd, “although it really may be more of a progression in being truer to myself. I really have gotten to the point where I am creating my music without any consideration of what others might think, or what I think others might think. Don't get me wrong, this is still a crazy guitar CD with tons of varied guitars flying around, but I had a lot of fun with the addition of 'field recordings'; a group of interesting recordings that I have made over the years and then I have built compositions around them or interjected them into preexisting songs. That was definitely the best time I have ever had making a CD and I am excited about continuing in this direction.” more

Misha Mansoor: PERIPHERY writing again!

Misha Mansoor:
"We are currently preparing for a long tour with DARKEST HOUR, VEIL OF MAYA and REVOCATION, which is going to be a blast and we can't wait to get back out there to play for everyone. Also, we encourage everyone to come and meet us at our merch booth after each and every show to come and hang with us. We love hearing feedback from our fans and getting a chance to meet new people. We also will have a fresh new, longer setlist with a brand-spankin'-new song and a few fun surprises just for this tour. We are also giving lessons on our respective instruments (a lot of days are already booked!), so please come out early to see us and jam with us. Contact us on MySpace or Facebook if you are interested in lessons.

"I am also really happy to announce that PERIPHERY is well into the writing process for our upcoming EP. We have tracked most of the instrumentation and vocals and are making final tweaks on everything but you guys are in for a treat. There will be some re-tweaked material, some rare material and some brand new material on it so there will be something for everyone. We have also been working on material for our second full-length now, so that we can have as much time to refine it before we record the final product. Our goal with our music is to cover as much ground as possible while staying true to our sound, and hopefully evolve from previous work all at once. It's a tall order but a fun challenge nonetheless, and we are doing our best to ensure that the new material will fulfill that goal. more
