Future Leaders of the World returns to Springfield

June 18, 2009

Some may remember Future Leaders of the World from their huge 2004 hit “Let Me Out.” They reached top 10 on Billboard and thanks to the disintegrating record industry, they faded away. Phil Taylor (he pretty much IS Future Leaders of the World) has gone on to do A LOT of great things including starting a new band based out of Benton, AR called Machina with former Evanescence guitarist John LeCompt and drummer Rocky Gray. Phil also started a production company (Phil Taylor Productions), with which he produced a number of Springfield, MO acts including Tara James, Cinemascope and The Horizon is After Us. Phil and John also started RedRoom Studios. So, with a new band, production company, and recording studio going…he also started managing a few bands and booking for The Mustang Agency. Yeah, he’s a pretty busy guy.

On top of all this, he’s also been working on new Future Leaders music and spent most of the past 6 months recording the new Future Leaders album, titled “Reveal,” at The Brewery Studios in Seattle, WA. Having gotten the chance to hear a number of the tracks from the upcoming album…this stuff is REALLY freakin’ good. Lucky for us, FLOW is hitting Springfield in July…details after the jump.

korn

Not even 2 minutes after hearing of Saliva’s cancellation of the Saturday, May 30 show at Remmington’s Downtown, we hear that Korn is coming to town!

That’s right. One of metal’s largest acts will be hitting Springfield’s very own Shrine Mosque on Friday, May 29. No announcement as to how much tickets will be or when they’ll be on sale. As soon as we find out we’ll let you know.

Saliva cancels MAY 30 show

Cancelled

Cancelled

Just heard word that Saliva has cancelled its May 30 show at Remmington’s Downtown. The biggest loss here is the fact that local rockers TROY were going to open. This would have been a very positive move for local music in Springfield, MO.

Rock Talk (3/22/09) with guests Chris Aytes and Daniel Maple

March 26, 2009

kzrqrocktalklogo1

We apologize for the delay, but WordPress seems to be having some difficulties with the audio file upload system. Well, hopefully this solution will work just fine.

This week we had Chris Aytes stop by. He let us in a some new tracks and performs a few tracks live in the studio. (We super-dig that new track Chris). He also spills the beans on the cause of the band’s temporary hiatus. After Chris, we were joined by Daniel Maple (a.k.a. Johnny Bukkake) of the Never Saints and Urban Legends to name just a few of the many bands and projects he’s involved in. Daniel is hilarious as always, jams a few songs on acoustic, including a Tom Waits cover (nice!). He also made up a Rock Talk theme song ON THE SPOT and it rocks. Listen in because this was a fun one folks.

Happy St. Pat’s Day! FourFourTV – Episode 1 feat. Irish Rockers, Dirty Old Towne (CD release)

March 17, 2009

So we’re finally getting around to doing a lot of the things we want to with the site before the redesign (yes there is a complete overhaul coming to TheFourFour.com—more on that later). TheFourFour Show has started, and now FourFourTV. FourFourTV will be us capturing video of what we do 4-5 nights a week…hit a bunch of shows, nab some pics&vids and interview bands on the fly. Trust us, there will be a lot of these, time permitting (we do have day jobs ya know). 

In this episode, we feature celtic rockers, Dirty Old Towne, at their cd release show at Waxy O’Shea’s in Branson, MO on Branson Landing. The boys have been working on this record forever and now its finally here. We had to be there to support. Watch and catch some live vids and an exclusive post-show interview with the band. 

Thanks for checking it out. More to come.

Truckstop Honeymoon to play in-house concert at High Strung Music (3/25/09)

March 13, 2009

ts_honeymoon11

If you’re an avid Rock Talk listener, you’ll remember a number of weeks ago where we had High Strung Music come in and talk about their in-house concert series and the upcoming Truckstop Honemoon show. These guys are road warriors and have built a pretty big name for themselves playing festivals and events all over the country. Now they’re playing in a music store and the roof is going to blow off the place. High Strung isn’t more than a 60×20 room filled with acoustics, banjos, drums, amps, strings, and stuff—and these in-house shows are packing 100 people. That makes for a very rowdy, hot, cramped, helluva good time!
