More new music! This came with the following note from Will: "I thought I would post a treat for our fans. This is a live soundboard clip of a new instrumental song that we wanted to share. Although it isn't the best quality recording I believe the substance is a good representation of where our music is right now. We also don't know if this song will end up on the new album with a new guitarist but regardless...here it is."

Greetings all! Well, I know we've had some bad news lately so we figured the least we could do is reward all you faithful members of the Omni Army (man, that would be pretty lame if we actually called you that, huh?) Anyway, we had begun recording some tunes recently and since we aren't sure when they'll actually surface, we wanted to give you a chance to hear them. So, without further ado:
Breakfast of Champions (4.8 MB)

Hello all, I have a sad word to pass. Hans has decided to leave the band. Hans is a unique musician and was an important part of the group. Although this is a blow to the band we must go on. This is a void which will be hard to fill but we are very dedicated to our further progression. A band is nothing if not a group of friends and art is just a reflection of that personal relationship. Although anger is in place I know where my true feeling sits beneath. Hans I will miss you as a band member and as a friend. -Chris

Due to extenuating circumstances within the band, Omni will not be playing on Saturday March 27th at the Central Saloon. We feel horrible to let down our friends and fans and we would like to give our most sincere apologies to them. We would also like to thank the Central and their staff for giving us the biggest opportunity we've had to be successful.

We have a show at the prestigious Central Saloon on Saturday March 27th at 12:00 Midnight. This show will be a milestone for us since the Central has taken a liking to our music and is giving us the opportunity to play on a Saturday night, so we really need to pack the place. If you all come out and impress the folks at the Saloon, that could mean a consistent Saturday gig for Omni and the opportunity to play some of the other big venues around town. The Central is such a cool place just to go and hang out anyway, so if you feel like a beer it is a good place to go and drink it. Good people... The Central Saloon is located at 207 First Avenue, South Pioneer Square Seattle, Washington - 206.622.0209.

In other news we are still immersed in working on new stuff which is why we haven't been playing many shows lately, especially shows of the all ages kind. We understand that we have plenty of fans that don't happen to be of legal drinking age and we will be doing all ages shows in the near future, but we need new material to play live to put on a better show!

We'll be playing the Central Saloon on Wednesday, February 18 at 12:00 midnight. The show is 21+ and there is an $8 cover. The Central Saloon is located at 207 First Avenue, South Pioneer Square Seattle, Washington - 206.622.0209. In other news, we have been working on new material daily and are totally immersed in the writing process. There will be many good things to come soon!

We do it all for the fans! First off we need to thank everyone that came out to the Ballard Firehouse shows over the last couple of months to support us, it is much appreciated. We would really like it for all of the fans to e-mail us and let us know where you live and where you want us to play. We want to start expanding the area in which we perform to bring the music to our fans in other parts of WA state. In the works is a little promotional video project designed to both get people ready for the new album, and as a gift to all you lovely fans out there. The video will be a mix of interviews, live clips and snippets of new songs. If anyone is interested in helping out in any way, please drop us an e-mail. Our fans will also play a big part in this video as we hope to answer a bunch of questions regarding the new album, history of the band, plans for the future etc. The video will be included in our press kit package and it will eventually be on our website. You can e-mail the band, or you can connect directly with the mighty Will at his personal address livewiredrums@hotmail.com. Don't be shy, get in touch and one more time THANK YOU!!

The shirts and hoodies have arrived! Designed by our own Chris Cullman (that's the bassist for those of you who were sleeping through the review), these things look amazing. The artwork is reproduced with a 7 color screen printing process - that means vibrant colors and this bad boy won't fade after a few trips through the washing machine. Check out the Merchandise section for information on getting your very own Omni gear.

We are gearing up for our Paradox show on December 9th @ 8:00 PM. We should be the first band on out of 3 others (Mother, X-setra, Spanish for 100) although we aren't 100% sure of the band line up quite yet. It is an all ages show. Tickts can be purchased at the door for $7. The next piece news is that the Live Edge TV gig has been changed to the 13th of December. Tickets will be available ASAP from us as they are being sent and will arrive probably early this week and we will let you know how to get them.

So, our current dates are as followed:

Dec. 9th, The Paradox, 8 PM, Seattle, WA
Dec. 13th, The Rainbow, time TBA, Seattle, WA
Date + time TBA, Kentwood High School, Kent, WA

Also, expect to see plenty more gigs lined up for us after the new year. We are currently recieving our press kits which will be sent out to venues before the end of December and it usually takes 2-3 months at the least to arrange slots to play. In the meantime we are continuing on rehearsing our new material to be performed live. Thats all for now...

We have solidified some info since the last site update. The Live Edge TV show is taking place on December 14th at a venue called The Rainbow, which is right off I-5. It is located in the U District in Seattle at 722 NE 45th St. Apparently we will be able to sell tickets to anyone who is interested in going. When we confirm this information we will let you know where and when you can buy them. We are slotted to play about 5 songs and we may debut a new song or two. There will be several other live acts performing that night as well. Due to schedule conflicts that are out of our control the Kentwood show is being pushed back to January or February and we will keep you posted on details about that show as well. The Paradox show is still on for December 9th and we hope to see many of you there...thats all for now, take care.
