We just learned that over on Shakin’ Katz Radio that “You Know I’m right” from our first album ‘Make a little mess with…‘ was the 8th most requested song of 2019.
Super-encouraging, and we’re in real good company on that list with the likes of The Devil’s Sons, Raygun Cowboys, Gutter Demons…
I highly recommend seeing what they’re all about over there if you’re not already in-the-know.
We are shooting a video for our next contribution to the indie radio waves, “Sour Mash” which is about exactly what you think it’s about.

Since we started talking about forming a band around Christmas time in 2016 and starting playing music together early in January 2017, remembering the anniversary of this band isn’t too difficult.
That 3 year mark is interesting, because when I think about what this band has accomplished and the regional notoriety we’ve achieved in that time, I’m particularly proud. With the official release of our second album on the horizon, the way our first album was received, and the quality of not only the last 53 performances we’ve given, but the calibre of the friends, fans, & acquaintances we’ve made along the way – it’s easy to get introspective, as well as optimistic about the future.
One moment of inspiration I’m brought back to was at our second time meeting & hanging out with our personal heroes; The Reverend Horton Heat.
Jim Heath & I were chatting and watching Jimbo Wallace climb up the side of the stage and over some precarious equipment so he could get his bass into it’s case when Jim turns to me and says “That there is one of the greatest men I know, we’ve played music 30 years together, and he’s my best friend in the whole world…” then a brief pause, and he continues “… and we’re about to watch him die.”
In that moment I knew exactly what he meant, and I know I don’t have to wait another 27 years to feel that way about this band.
I can’t wait for the next show… the next tour… the next record… I eagerly await these things and relish them while they’re happening.
Likely by now the floor around the tree is covered in spent wrapping paper and the more juvenile members of your tribe are sourcing out batteries for whatever noise-makers Santa brought, and you’ve likely recoiled into the corner of your sectional sofa to catch up on the social media tabloids…
Brunch is long since done, dinner is coming quickly, and you habitually stare into your smartphone curious about where your acquaintances are at in their day.
And then; Oh, hello… what’s this… a festive blog post from the Confusionaires… and wait, what’s this – they’re playing tomorrow evening? With Future Ghost Towns? At The Rocky Mountain Ice house?
It’s true… and a mere 29 hours from now you’ll be more than fed up with your current surroundings and festive formalities.
It’s time to change out of that ugly festive sweater and head downtown towards draught beer and loud guitars.
The return to normalcy is upon you.
We look forward to seeing you there! But until then… a happy whatever-you-celebrate from we three Confusionaires.
We’ll be closing out the year on Boxing Day instead of New Year’s Eve, and we’d like to invite you down to The Rocky Mountain Ice House on Thursday, December 26th, and for the low price of $5.00 you can see us & Future Ghost Towns from Calgary.
We’ll see you there,
Hey everyone (via confusionaires.com)
We’ve got a lot going on this holiday season – all of the regular holiday stuff PLUS preparing for the impending release of ‘From The Headache To The Heartache’
If you’re just tuning in now, here’s the most concise explanation to date.
We’re releasing a brand new collection of songs called ‘From The Headache To The Heartache’ on February 8th, and doing what we can to fill the calendar in support of that release all through the spring of 2020.
- The first song from this album is called “Many Miles To Go” and is very encouragingly closing in on 2000 views on YouTube, even as I type this.
- The second single from this album is called “Crazy Is Just What I do” and will gently caress your eardrums on December 12th, 2019 and will likely be the first (only?) non-holiday single you hear this month.
- December 12th is also a magical day for anyone who pre-ordered a CD or LP copy of the album, because we’ll be sending an advance pre-order out on that day as a special holiday gift to you.
- January we’ll spend a little time making a music video for yet ANOTHER single. You’ll be invited to take part.
This is all very exciting news for us, and it’s been very encouraging as the colored vinyl LP copies have gained a lot of momentum on their own, and the pre-order is really starting to move.
Thank you all for coming on this crazy ride with us.
We’ll see you all real soon!
