I finally watched the footage from the Rock City Studios show with RVIVR. Footage of Albion Gold and of RVIVR.
We film every Albion show. Watch, re-watch, how can we play faster, how can I push that note harder. Re-watch and re-watch. I am my harshest critic. This is not news.
Watching RVIVR is like watching a light glowing bright. I am struck with inability to focus on anything else. I am lifted and troubles drift. I want to write the greatest song when I hear them and never write another song again. I will never be able to describe life and death the way they do.
I am gushing, but it is true.
I miss that night already. I hold it dear to my heart.
Here is a review from The Teeth Pit from Albion Gold’s first show of 2014. It’s always fun to play one of Lauren’s nights.
“Next up were Albion Gold. I’d never seen/heard of this band before but fuck I was blown away from their first song onward. They have a very scatterbrain-esque sound, think The Locust, if the Locust was a punk band. Their front woman is a crazy ball of energy who’s venomous vocals perfectly guide the the song (and listener) through the intensity of the bands sound. Definitely give these guys a listen!”
Here is a review of the last show of 2013 that Albion Gold played. It was a pretty rad show with Feeling Dave, Bitter Lungs, The Lost Cause, and Clowns.
Amy…Laura, we’re pretty much one in the same I guess.
“First up are Gold Coast ladies and gents Albion Gold who echo all things brutal and fun from a scene that is still quietly throbbing away in the underground of these parts. It’s short, fast, detuned, and spat with such venom from frontwoman Amy that’s it’s impossible to do anything but divert full attention to this highly engaging four-piece. Tracks Autoimmune and Bored And Braindead off Symmetrical Cemeteries get a good hurrah from the riff raff.”
I made this poster for the Gold Coast RVIVR show/One Brick Today.
We, Albion Gold, are also playing this show too.
I’m so over excited for this and feel so underprepared but life is and it does so let’s get on with it and be awesome.
