Have you heard of “Self-Titled Debut”?

“Self-Titled Debut” is a group of five. If you’re from Queens New York you might have got the chance to see them live. This group consists of some major talent, Sal is the vocals, they got Gian working the drums, Mike and Tom control guitars and they saved Kris for the bass. They put their strengths in the right spots because all I hear is some amazing music. This band wants to play at warp tour and they are more than qualified so vote for them at here. If you want to here some more of their songs check them out on myspace.

Inside with “Pillar of Autumn”

As I said before “Pillar of Autumn” is a unbelievable band, this guys are kicken ass all over Detroit. They’ve taken off with some out standing songs like “Asthma” which took #1 Detroit City.com Also make sure to check out “Miles Away” and “Carpe Diem” on myspace. We had the chance to talk these guys and learn a little more about them and there history. Check it out.

“Pillar of Autumn” is an awesome name, does is stand for anything?

The name came from the name of a spaceship in the video game Halo. We decided to use the name because of the influence the game has had on the creative process of the band. When we find ourselves stuck in a song, playing each other in first person shooters is something that helps us clear our heads. Except for when Rob cheats. He always knows where to hide and find the good weapons. Alright, maybe he’s just really good… but we’ll still call it cheating.

Spencer: “Rob Wishes he was as good at me at Halo.”

Rob (replying to Spencer): “Spencer wishes he was as good as me at anything.”

Know how your working on a six song ep, when can we look forward to its release?

We are currently in pre-production and are finalizing dates to get back in the studio to record the final tracks. So we’re shooting for late summer but we haven’t settled on the year yet.

You guys come up with some amazing lyrics, what’s the writing process like?

Our writing process is quite crazy. We usually begin by jamming out melodies or rhythms that the band members have written that have caught our attention. Rob brings most of the musical elements to the table in the beginning, then we try to take the mess of parts and make it better. We repeat that until we find something that inspires us. Once we find that inspiration the song takes off. If we get lost, we look to each other to help out. Every member in the band can play all of the instruments we play enough to help with any part; it’s a team effort to the fullest. Then when Frankie says it sucks, we try it all over again.

SerTop puts the ST in ST Patrick!

Happy St. Patrick

We gotta give three cheers for ST. Patrick. He’s the reason we get all dressed in green and drink like the Irish till we pass out. St. Patrick was born in the west coast of Britain in 385 AD. St. Patrick was kidnapped at age 16 and then sold into slavery bought by a sheep farmer. After being captured for six years, he finally snuck his way out at age 22. St. Patrick did eventually get back to Ireland were he began converting people to Christianity. Soon St. Patrick became known as a legendary figure when he eventually died on March 17th 461 AD (St. Patrick’s Day). A lot of fun facts go with this day; according to the “Guinness Book of World Records” the most leaves found on a clover was 14. That’s crazy considering the odds of finding a four leaf clover are 1 to every 10,000 three leaf clovers. Did you know in Chicago they will actually die the rivers green for St.Patrick’s. Watch out for the leprechauns those little mischievous creatures stand only about two feet tall and got access to a pot of gold, you can find them by listening to their tiny hammers, if your lucky enough to catch one don’t take your eyes off them not even for a second those tricky little buggers will vanish leaving you lost without the gold. When you go out tonight enjoy the day that was brought on by ST. Patrick, drive responsibly, and don’t do anything SerTop wouldn’t do.
