KB and I are looking for new members for Suggestion. We dont care if youre a singer, a guitarist, a bassist, a keyboardist, sitarist, whatever; if youve ever wondered what it would be like to share the stage with us, nows your chance. You can e mail us as many sumbission videos, recordings, etc, as youd like; the more entertaining and creative they are, the better your chance. If you think you might know anyone suited for the task, send us an e mail too! You can do this by clicking the Contact Us section up top.
Were extending the 4/20 special through the next couple of days. This means that you can listen to our whole for free and download half of what you just heard for free, too. Dont take too long to download though...we arent extending this for long.
Also, if you ordered off Kickstarter and recieved a download code that didnt do shit, send us a message and we'll get it straightened out. We also need your addresses so we can ship out the physical copies!
In celebration of 4/20, we decided to team up with 20wt and Florida Green and put together a free compilation! The catch is that its only available for free today @ 20wt.com.
We also decided to stream ALL of the songs off our new album, All for Nathan?, for free on our site wide music player as well as making 6 of our songs free to download! Check out the Buy Our Shit section and scroll down to the album... half of them will be free!
Happy 4 20!
New Music Streaming
We just added another couple songs to the streaming player below. There are also a couple of songs that we have up for free in our "Buy Our Shit" section, so if you like what you hear, download the free songs now because they wont be up forever!
New Album and New Members
So youre listening to some of our music on the website and wondering why it sounds so different from the other music before. Well, we just finished peicing together our first full length album, All for Nathan. This LP is the culmination of three long years of hard work, perseverance, and absolute insanity.
I have to personally thank everyone who pre ordered this album off of Kickstarter; without the help of our fans, family, and crew, this never would have happened. We thoroughly appreciate all of the help that we have recieved from everyone interested and involved in the world of Suggestion.
However, these past few months have not been good to Suggestion- the album was nearly cancelled due to a horrible injury suffered by our bassist, Alin. Our guitarist, GrundleGarth, decided to part ways with the group after Alin's tragic accident. The crew has also been fragmented by these internal issues. However, Suggestion is not over. We are just beginning.
We are now looking for another guitarist or musician in general- if you think you or anyone you know has what it takes to make it in Suggestion, contact us through this website or send us a youtube video or something. Who knows, you could become famous, just like us.
LAST DAYS TO PRE ORDER!!!!
The last two days to pre order our upcoming album are upon us. We have TWO DAYS LEFT before our pre order hub @ http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/frankwolfman/pre-order-suggestions-upcoming-album closes. If youve been waiting to get yourself a copy, this is it!
We need to raise at least $5,000 to meet our goal, or we get nothing. You can even donate a dollar....every bit helps!
Frank and the Suggestion Crew
Recording has begun!
Studio work for our first upcoming album has begun! Me and Grundlegarth have been busting some serious ass over at Casey Grillo's studio...the songs are tracked, but there is a lot of editing to do. We will be realeasing tons of new info on this album soon.
Were also heading up to Jacksonville early next month to finish up the album with our friends from 20Wt (20wt.com). Guitar, bass and vocal tracks will be recorded up there, and hopefully we can fnish up the production and all of the post production shit up there. We will release a few tracks when we get them finished...keep coming back to the site for more information.
We havent updated this page in a while, and theres a reason- weve been working on getting studio time booked and the album completed. Weve come a long way, and we got even longer to go. Expect a cd/dvd combo and tons of new artwork and merch. Weve been listening and working hard to give you, the fans, what you want. If you still have any comments or suggestions, please, PLEASE use the Suggestions for Suggestion part of this website. We read all of them, and we love to see what you guys are thinking.
Were also thinking about pre orders for the album- 10 dollars will get you the album and free entry to the cd release show. We have a bunch of other packages were working on...let us know if you would be interested.
We're working on some new recordings too, so just sit tight.
Happy New Year!
And what a year it was. Between Alin's sickness, recovery, and subsequent injury; the hate crime committed on Wolfman and Bong, and Foghorns roid incident....were all just thankful to be alive. However, the people who jumped us and ran... youre going to die for making me cancel a show. A slow, painful death awaits.
In lighter news, the Roosevelt's Heavy Metal BBQ II was an amazing success. Thanks to everyone that came out and supported the bands and the new venue. In case you havent heard, the Roosevelt is a brand new venue in Ybor and is one of the only venues in the area that puts on all ages shows. They are a completely off the grid building and their progress is constantly being filmed. You can check out more info on them here
We also played the Tre Stylz entertainments Pour Out Your Talent Competition, and while we didnt win, place, or generate our usual buzz, we still had a lot of fun. Were still getting the funds together for a full length album, and were so close we can almost hear it already. Just wait til you hear what were pulling together.
As for now, were working on an updated merch store. We have tons of t shirt/ hoodie designs that we cant print as of now, but we have come across a website that may prove very beneficial to us and to the fans. We also have some cool new artwork that is pictured below.
As for now, im signing off. As always, you can talk to either me, KB, Ijas, Foghorn, and Pucey on Facebook. Either that, or send your inquires into the Suggestions for Suggesiton section of this website.
Our next show is November 5th @ USF's ampitheater next to the Marshall Student Center. Were playing for the metal club, but if you wanna come out, its free and its gonna be sick. The Autumn Air Festival is also coming up. Its a three day music and arts festival were playing at. Were going to have all kinds of crazy shit there...maybe even a fire hooper. Definately not a show youre going to wanna miss. We have tickets for $15, so if youre interested, contact us.
So, we also recieved some new artwork from the very talented Hallena Hinkle and Carlos Pons. These are definately going to be made into shirts in the near future. Check it out:
Photoshoot, Big Daddy's, and Booking
Its been a hell of a week for the guys here at Suggestion. We were interviewed by an online magazine called Nyght Scene Magazine, which has areported 50,000 readers a day. It turns out, were getting the cover and a six page spread in their biggest issue of the year! Needless to say, we are excited for the publicity and new fans. Were awaiting the day it comes out...just be prepared for the funniest, most ridiculous interview ever ( I mean, what would you expect?).
We also had a show this past Friday down at Big Daddy's in Tallahassee! Between drinking and partying with the locals, GG hitting the side of a pillar in our tour truck, nearly passing out on stage, and KB's subsequent eye infection, we all had quite an experience. Were definately going to be hitting Tally up again.
So, we got a few shows comin up, notably our Brass Mug show this Saturday with Imperial Conquest and our headlining show next Saturday at the illustrious State Theatre. We also are in the works for a Halloween show, a private show for the USF Metal Club, and the Autumn Air Festival in Ocala.
We also got a few more Suggestions for Suggestion...if youre not a total douche, check out that section of the site.
We just won the 2009 Rock Solid Pressure Industry Showcase! Suggestion took first place in the contest, scoring some very high marks from most of the judges. We met a lot of cool, interesting people who want to help us further our career. We also met dozens of new people that were hoping we see more of at our upcoming shows.
Thanks to J Rock and Patty for having us out that night! Right now were working with Nyght Scene Magazine for a photoshoot/interview...plans are were going to be in a big upcoming issue they have in the works, so you'll be seeing more of Suggestion around.
In other Suggestion news, GrundleGarth finished all of his vegetables last night, and were all very proud of him! Who knew the old boy had it in him?
Welcome to Suggestion's first attempt at a website that doesn't begin with myspace.com! Alin, King Bong, GrundleGarth, and myself are all very excited for the forseeable future- a website that allows the user to communicate openly with us, check out our latest news, and, amongst other things, buy our shit. If you want to tell us how good, or terrible, of a job were doing, simply drop us a line at the "Suggestions for Suggestion" page.
As of now, the biggest thing were all looking forward to is the:
* September 19th - Rock Solid Pressure Industry Showcase
Its at St. Petersburg's very own State Theatre, so if you would like to purchase tickets, well too bad... because theyre all sold out.
