UPDATE [16 May 2005|12:12am]
oh wow. it's been a hell of a long time since i've (robbie) updated this.
from october to like, february, were the most retarded months ever. people around us were fiending on drama and making it hard on our band. we stuck together and saw past all things negative, and we're glad we did. major changes have been made too.

recently, we got a new italian bassist named Joey. he's a sweet dude. he drives aggresively, but im pretty sure i can beat him..destroy him in a footrace.
jose just recently left the band to pursue other things.
but in place, we got Robak from herd thinner. metal.

we recently played with daughters as well. such a fun show. the lead singer loves getting naked. its awkward at best. we played really tight, and a huge thanks goes to andrew mccoll for letting andy and i use his mesa cabs..and for letting me use his metal LTD. AMAZING. LOLERZ

uh anyway. we're looking to record with jay oyoung soon. robak will definitely learn the songs quickly so that we can get in the studio. or better know as his basement.

on may 29th, we have our first show in brampton! finally, fuck. its about time a good show happened in brampton. the lineup is as follows

closed casket funeral
numbers, revolt!
herd thinner
hell or high water
struck by truth
strawman fallacy
ghost stories
the wildcats

its at this new place in brampton. i dont know what its called.

all in all. numbers, revolt! is excited about what is yet to come with our new lineup change.
wish us luck in our queery future endevours. and pray that i dont see andy naked ever again.

[ mood | sick ]

soooo, we played a show in toronto at the rockit this past wednesday evening with xLIFERUINERx, Herd Thinner, Closed Casket Funeral, In These Walls, and Ion Dissonance. such a good show. the turnout was okay. not as packed as misery signals though. we played a good set, and it was a fun time had by all.
it was out last show for a good two months or so. it was a good way to go out, temporarily.

anyways, on better news, andy, jose and i recorded with Reverse Vampires' studio. we have recorded the drums, two guitars, and bass so far. the sound needs to be edited a lot to make it sound the way we want to, but it already sounds pretty decent so far. dillon is going in tomorrow to complete the tracks with vocals. yes, the songs should be done within the next maybe two or three weeks (a rough estimate), complete with mixing, mastering, and all the stuff i couldn't possibly understand. they will be up on hxcmp3 in about february for all your metal needs.

this just in, im really sick.

quick update [10 Dec 2004|03:06pm]
what's up everyone who reads this thing.
i've taken over this journal since mike is no longer apart of the band.
Things are going along just fine. we picked up erika as a temp bassist instantly. i'll update more on her situation when there is more information available.
i forget the shows we've played since i last updated, so i won't even bother to give a review about those shows, but i'll start after December 15th.
speaking of that show, it's going to be our last show for quite a while. jose is going to argentina for about a month, and dillon is going somewhere for the christmas break. andy, erika and i will definitely be writing a few songs while the guys are gone, and hopefully we can start recording when they get back and learn the stuff.
things with the guys are definitely looking much better than they were a week ago. for those who knew what was happening, there is nothing to worry about anymore. oh and..

Ion Dissonance
In These Walls
Numbers, Revolt
CLosed Casket Funeral
Herd Thinner

come out and have as much fun as we're gonna have.

Some good or bad news with the band, depending on you look at it.
I, Mike, have left Numbers. This was a personal decision motivated with my general unhappiness of playing a kind of music I wasn't passionate about, among other personal reasons. So this is my last post, and I won't be playing a last show. So thank you to everyone who has supported me through this decision, and all of the people I've met through the band.

"We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance."

I have moved onto other things, and am really going to miss all of the good times I've shared with the guys. I wish them the best of look. I'm also handed this journal over to Robbie, if he chooses to use it or not.

Take care.

So we have a new song.
Come check it out on the 9th, at the Misery Signals show in Toronto.
It's called "I cheated at Sorry and didn't apologize".

Take care.

October 13th - The Embassy- London

What a night.

So we all met up at Robbies, and got all of the gear loaded into the cars (Robbies and Nates), and we took off. It took awhile to get there, and when we finally did, the place was pretty much dead. It being a Wednesday night, and the Underoath/Senses Fail show going on as well, not many kids showed up. Which sucked, but the promoter was an amazing guy, and promised to get us some shows in the area soon.

So, having already gotten there, and being sore from an hour and a half squished car ride, we realized that we forgot my bass. Which really did suck, because I had to ask the guy from Cold Casket Funeral for his, and he was less than pleased about it. But, in any case, we got our gear together, and did the sound check. We then had a little break before we started playing, and who should I meet up with, of all people, but Marc, from Strawman Fallacy! And to my luck, he had his bass with him. So that meant no using a 5-string, C# tuned nu metal boat.

So we played decently, but, unfortunately, as I mentioned, no one was there. Some people seemed interested though, and we did get some awesome pictures out of it, so the night wasn’t a total waste. Besides us losing like 40 dollars in gas, and Andy getting in trouble. But we got home and got some sleep before the show we had the next day with Blessed by a Broken Heart.

Thanks to everyone who helped us out, especially Nate <3.

To give me confidence to stare... [02 Nov 2004|09:02am]
[ mood | gloomy ]

Okay, so I've been slacking a lot with this site.
But I promise to get caught up. Starting..... now.

October 9th - Scott Monk's Basement - Streetsville

So after much debating as to whether or not I should even write an entry on this show, I just decided to go for it. This show was in Scott's basement in Streetsville, where down the street at the Kinsmen Hall, another show was going on. So I guess that may have been one of the factors in why so little people showed up, but I also have a feeling that the remoteness of his house may have played a role as well.

So Maria drove me down there, and Robbie drove the rest of the guys. We got there at approximately the same time, and we took all of our gear downstairs, where the first band... Army Clit was already playing. I kid you not, there were two people watching them. So we get downstairs, and everything had this neon green glow, and it was really creepy. The house itself was creepy, from my point of view.

But anyways...

We set up, and we played. Hard. Our gear was majorly fucking up, and all of the levels were off. Not only that, but, none of us were tuned to each other. Fuck, we weren't even tuned to ourselves. I wasn't anyways. But it didn't even matter. 20 people watched us, and they rocked out hard. It was cool to see people getting into it in that kind of setting.

So we finished up a terribly sloppy set, and packed up. I took off right away with Maria, and the rest of the guys watched and chilled with Herd Thinner.

So thankyou to Scott for having the party/show, and to Herd Thinner for being such awesome dudes!

Take care.

October 1st - YMCA - Burlington

Robbie already made a post about this, but I'll do a more detailed one.

I got there pretty early, and basically just socialized, and waited for the band to show up. But of course, they had to scare the shit out of me and show up basically 10 or 20 minutes before we had to play. We almost lost our time slot, which wouldn't have been good.

So we hauled all of our gear upstairs, which wasn't the easiest task, and got set up. It was Robbies first show with us, and a lot of his friends showed up to support him, which was really awesome. In fact, we had a pretty decent turn out for an opening band. I'd say that about 50-100 people were in the room while we played, and maybe 30-50 of those were watching us. So that was really cool. A lot of our friends were there, so it's really awesome to see some familiar faces, as well as some new ones.

We played really tightly, even though Dillon didn't sing half of the stuff. Jose's drumming was so tight, it was unbelievable how well he held everything together. He often get's overlooked, but hands down he is one of the most crucial members of our band, and such a sweet dude. But in any case, we dropped 3 new songs, called:

Someone should tell them that Oliver is missing.
I've only had one sexual dream, and it involved Indiana Jones.
In memory of Lou Bega.

They were pretty well recieved, as well as the old songs that we still play. Actually, people were telling me that the old songs sounded exactly like the recordings, which is a good thing really. So while were on the topic, we have dropped most of our old songs, and now we only play: Bears can't fly, Is it you, and She Reminds me, as well as the three new ones, and our intro.

So awesome show, despite some problems.
Hopefully we can see everyone on the 14th with Blessed by a Broken Heart. You can see Me and Dillon each make out with 5 guys... again.

Take care.
Mike <3

PS.. Numbers, Revolt! loves meeting new people!
So come to talk to us at shows!!!

hey everyone!

our show at the burlington ymca on friday october 1st was awesome! me (robbie), andy, dillon, and jose were running a little late, but i couldn't be put to blame, it was no one's fault. we managed to get there in the nick of time, and have the promoters pissed at us. we rocked out failrly hard, and the rest of the show was a lot of fun too. the most serene republic kick so much ass. on top of that, adam nimmo is such a smooth/sexy drummer.

uh..anywho. we're playing with Blessed By A Broken Heart on the 14th i believe. it's the thursday of that week. i'm not sure if we're going to be able to make it to london for that circle takes the square show. the time demands are just too unreasonable for us to be able to make. sorry, london. maybe next time.

i recieved news from dillon that we're playing on november the 9th with misery signals at club rockit. and november 13th with moneen in woodbridge somewhere. these aren't definite dates yet, so don't get your hopes up. cause mine are. until next time..

take care!

HUGE shout out to Peter Tomaszewski.

This guy is totally amazing, and has been promoting us in Mississauga, getting our name out. So I'd just like to take this oppurtunity to thank him and everyone else who has done anything for us. This means all of you who buy merch, come to our shows, or even tell a friend about us. So keep it up, things are going so well with the band, and we expect huge things when we release our EP entitled Makeout Music in December.

Take care.

I have more details on the October 30th Masonic Lodge show:

Added to the bill are Policies and Procedures, The Lava Witch, and Turn Key. We will still be playing around 10ish, so keep that in mind.

This is going to be a costume show, since Halloween is the next day, so dress up! In fact, it's $6 with a costume, and $8 without.

I've been updating with a lot of information on shows and other stuff, but I realized that I never really provide a glance into the minds of the people that make Numbers, Revolt what it is.

Basically... As people and not musicians...
All Numbers, Revolt does is:
a)Make out with each other.
b)Tell each other how cute they are.

That's it.

Have a wonderful week.

Just a quick note...

I know that theres a lot of Mississauga kids that I've been bugging to come to the Masonic show on the 30th.. So here's the details:

It'll probably be like all Masonic shows, come around 6-6:30, and expect the bands to start around 7-7:30. In terms of how much it's going to cost, I don't know exactly, but probably no more than 7.

So there's set order yet, but the bands are going to be:

The Vulcan Dub Squad
The Smear Campaign
Numbers, Revolt!
Viking Club

And probably one or two more.

But heres the thing...
Numbers is playing in Oakville around 8, then were hauling ass to get back to Mississauga to headline, or play 3rd or 4th at the very least. So we'll be there around 10ish.

So please come out!

September 18th - Theo's House - Mississauga

So today was Theo's house party.
For Numbers specifically, it was one of two things; Sooz's last show with us, and Robbies first.

So Robbie drove everyone down there (It was packed I hear, and there was a lot of head banging), and I drove myself. We unloaded all of the gear, then the band and I went to McDonalds (minus Robbie). So anyways, after meat-related discussion, we got back to watch Sooz play with her new band, Ghost Stories. So some metal band played next, then, due to Herd Thinners sketchiness (joking), we were on next.

Really tight set.
We rocked out hard, and played really intensely.
Probably because Sooz was in her underwear. But in any case, we unleashed the two new songs with Robbie, and I was surprised to see some people rocking out. I always love when people get into our stuff. And when people talk to me at shows! I met some new people, which made me happy.

So in any case...
All of the other bands were amazing, obviously.
Herd Thinner was fucking nuts. Drawing a Day was so cute too, as usual. I just watched the guitarists feet the whole time. He's quite the little dancer. Then Strawman Fallacy. These dudes do it for me in every way possible. Their so talented, and just such amazing people.

But time to go home.
We had a good talk on the way home (me, Andy and Dillon). However, all I can say is... ANDY IS A FAGGOT. His pants down to this ankles, his feet on my dashboard, he starts beating it like no tomorrow. He was donkey punching his cock, and slapping his chode. It was nuts.

But anyways, thats about it.
Check out these pictures..
PicturesCollapse )

Those are the only ones I have as of yet, but if you check back, I'm going to post all of the pictures from that show, once their sent to me.

So thanks to anyone who came out and made it such a special night. As well, a super big thanks to Theo for putting up his house like that, and to all of those who respected it and didn't try and ruin things for everyone.

Take care.

August 28th - AFB - Hamilton

Terrible show, in my books.

With things temporarily resolved with Numbers, I expected good things. However, there turned out to be a lot of drama, which resulted in me and Sooz both being pissed at the other guys, and wanting to leave.

So, I drove down with Petey, Sooz and Ashley, and we got there pretty early. So some socializing went down, before we had to hit the stage: first. Shitty sound check, but we did get all of our shit set up fairly quickly.

Then we played.
3 songs in, I attempted a bass swing. Well... I forgot to attach my strap securely with duct tape, so it went flying into the crowd! I then realized that I had totalled my bass, and that it wouldn't work. So luckily... the dude from ARVOD lent me his.

More drama after the set.
On top of that, we got stiffed by the promoter, who took off.
The night ended with me packing 8 people in my 6 person car, and driving to Waterdown. Shitty.

Thanks to ARVOD, and Dead and Divine for helping us out with shit.

Mike <3
