Good review in HillyDilly last week

Our song Glasgow got a really good write up last week on the HillyDilly blog, it reads as follows:

The soon-to-be Vancouver buzz band, Combine the Victorious, dropped their debut EP,Crumbling Hearts, back in October of 2012 to what looks like a luke-warm response. However this should not be so, because when you take a listen to the EP, hearing the exceptional track, ”Glasgow”, will change your mind on this duo instantly.

With it’s trip-hop accentuated features that round out with awesome guitar sections & prominent vocals, “Glasgow” is the kind of track that shows this band’s promise in one swell swoop.

If you want to hear more, head on over to Bandcamp to check out the Crumbling Hearts EP

Video Release Party - May 30th Media Club

We shall be celebrating the completion of our Smoke and Choke video with a show at the Media Club Thursday May30th, 2013.  Director (editor, producer...) Stefan Sigerson is nearing completion of his dystopia evoking piece and we are keen to share it.  The live show will also feature entirely new material from our forth coming full length.  We're taking the tested and proven route of performing the songs live before we commit to putting them on tape (hard drive).

Joining on the evening shall be a showcase set from the beautifully voiced Badgerchild, guitar virtuoso Marc Wild performing a prepared guitar composition, and Blank Cinema to close the night with their brand of progressive angular rock.

Big thanks to Wonderbro for this exemplary work!!

A Change of Frequency

Our dear friend Todd Simko died last year and in his memory his wife Minna has fulfilled one of his dreams to put live music back into an ignored venue in New Westminster - The Columbia.  The music festival is titled "A Change of Frequency" and its proceeds will go to assisting Mental Health.  There is going to be two evening full of music, May 10th and 11th.  Combine the Victorious is included on the bill for the Saturday night, May 11th.  There promises to be several wonderful moments in this event, and we're all looking forward to performing (though Juice has the heaviest load of everyone!  Not only will he be playing with Combine on our new material but he's promises to also play guitar with Pure as well as drumming with Fine Times all on Saturday night!)

We've got a new song titled Brotherhood that I"m really looking forward to playing on the night.  The whole thing is going to be great, just check out the poster that the inimitable Rob Edmonds has designed!
