Heaven's Basement will be hitting the road this fall with The Pretty Reckless. Prior to these dates, the band will play several radio festivals across the United States. Lastly, they'll be touring with Black Veil Brides in Europe in winter. Dates for these tours and some other shows are below.
When do you plan on recording?
Iím not exactly sure. Iíd like to this year, but time is closing down on us. Iíd like to this year.
POZ: Is most of the record written at this point?
Nathan: Itís written and demoed out. Iím writing some more just to have. The Season was 12 cut town to 10. I want this to be 20 cut down to 10.
Yeah. I donít know if itís arrogant, but itís just like we have the tendency to just only look at whatís around us, generally speaking. So that was just a super inspirational trip. And the second one was when they invited me to play one of these shows that they put on, which is essentially a four-hour concert with anywhere from 20 to 50 different artists from all over the world.
Running the gamut from sketch to improv to stand-up and shining the spotlight on both veteran comics & rising stars (among which are the likes of Chris Gethard, Aparla Nancherla and Dan Soder), the 1st Annual Brooklyn Comedy Festival is quickly approaching. Luckily for you East coasters, however, our friends over at The Laugh Button (it's their day here today, I guess) are giving away three free passes to this great 5-day showcase beginning on August 19th. All you have to do is be over 21, head over to the contest page, fill out a couple quick boxes, and the rest is left to fate. If you're in the area and able, try your hardest to go regardless; the lineup is stellar for a first-year...
And sometimes itís not easy to be that person whoís like ĎNo, I donít know anything about celebrity gossip and no, I didnít watch that TV show last week. But I just got this new record and these lyrics on it are really important to me. Or I just discovered this artist, I really like the work they do and itís really meaningful to me in this way.í
One of my favorite comedy sites TheLaughButton.com has put up a cool new video feature called The Laugh Button Inquisition, which revolves around asking several comedians one single question. Nearly two dozen comedians were questioned, including Kyle Kinane, Paul F. Tompkins, Kumail Nanjiani and Pete Holmes. Head to the replies to check out a few of the videos, and hit up TLB's Youtube page for the rest. They will be released weekly throughout the rest of the year.
