Back at Architekt to finish work on these new tracks. Drums, guitars and bass is all done. Matthew cut his vocals already, too. Just a few little harmonies left for me to do and then we’re on to mixing mode. Keep an eye out for “Nothing Stays Gold” which will be out soon. More details to follow.

We’ve been in pre-production mode, working with Mr. Clint Lowery on a few new songs which we should be recorded later this month. Studio dates are all but locked up. And you’ll definitely be getting a taste of some new DFH music in the very near future! -rob

Easy come, easy go.
…or in this case, is it easy go, easy come? We will be in RI on 3/15 after all, Thanks to the fine folk over at 1150 Oak Bar & Grill, we were just added to their show with Tantric.
Unfortunately, those of you waiting for our return to RI are going to have to wait a little longer. Due to a scheduling conflict with the club, our March 15th date has been cancelled. Sometimes things are just out of our control. We are, however, working on a new date and will share it with you as soon as we have it confirmed.
Last night was a fantastic evening…and it’s all made possible because of your incredible support. Thanks to the wonderful staff at bergenPAC and the crew in 3 Doors Down & 105.5 WDHA. Most of all, as always, it’s a pleasure and honor meeting so many avid music fans. THANK YOU!!! See you again soon.
It’s been a little while since we’ve been back to Providence. This coming March, we’re headed back to DUSK – Saturday night, March 15th, 2014 to be exact. And we’re bringing our Jersey friends, OneHundredThousand with us.
With all the acoustic ditties we’ve been offering ya, it’s only right that we do a little acoustic performance, wouldn’t you agree? Next month, we’re headed back to the bergenPAC to open the evening for 3 Doors Down, who will also be performing acoustic.

How’d you all enjoy the Dead Fish Handout we posted a couple weeks ago? Did it make up for last year? Do you want another?
This is our interpretation of U2′s “Stay (Faraway, So Close!)”. It’s one of those songs you wish you wrote for it’s brilliance. Enjoy!
We’re all caught up now on Dead Fish Handouts, until next time.

As the saying goes, “it’s been a long time since I’ve rock n rolled”. After some time away from the live circuit, we’re ready to rock out again and can’t wait to get back to Mexicali Live in Teaneck, NJ for an awesome rock show. Hope to see you there.
A special post for our Kickstarter supporters…
Hey all, Rob here.
It’s been a little while since we’ve posted here. As we wind down the year, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you all for sending us out on the road this Summer. It was a memorable experience and we met some incredible people.
By now, most of you have received your Kickstarter packages that you signed up for. However, a few, including the covers EP, is still in process. Without going into full detail, I’d like to apologize on behalf of DFH for the delay. I’ve had a rough go at it on the personal front which has slowed down production in the studio. I’d rather keep it at that, but assure you that we are working hard to complete the songs and expect them to be in your hands and ears in early 2014. Also, on the horizon are some new songs, new shows and more. I never wanted this delay to be a sign of lack of appreciation. I hope it hasn’t come off as such.
In the meantime, let me tell you a little about the very first song that Matt and I ever wrote – a song called “Guilt”. Back in the early days of writing what would become Dead Fish Handshake’s debut EP, we had about 10 song ideas floating around, six of which eventually got narrowed down for inclusion on “Across State Lines”. “Guilt” was one of my favorites – a sure shot to make the record or so it seemed, but we couldn’t decide between this originally stripped down, intimate recording or a full blown electric version. In the end, others came together and found their way onto “Across State Lines”, leaving no room for “Guilt” or the other few that were in contention. We’re very happy to be able to share this with you.
As part of this Kickstarter, we want to say thank you and offer a glimpse of the early days. I can still remember being in the room on a cold December afternoon watching and hearing this song come to life in a matter of moments. We hope you enjoy this.

Being on this tour has been quite the experience…certainly one to remember. We’ve met some incredible fans and bands. It’s reassuring to see so many people out there that love to rock and support live music. And knowing that you all back home are pulling for us means the world. Without you, none of this would have been possible. With that said, it’s only fair that we keep our DFH-family informed of all things Dead Fish Handshake. Unfortunately, we were forced to re-route some of our tour dates due to unforeseen circumstances. Our trek out to the midwest is no longer on the schedule. Our apologies to those who live in the areas that we are unable to visit at this time. We will do our best to get back out to you at a later date. We managed to schedule some dates up the east coast as we make our way back up to NJ and are planning another leg of the “Leave The Light On” tour to go with our current dates in NJ, PA & CT. Thank you all for the incredible support. See you soon.
Been a little busy as of late but recently had a chance to reflect on what it is we do and the amazing people that allow it to happen. As you know, we hit our Kickstarter goal, a hefty number… and I can’t put into words what that means and how it makes me feel. For all the detractors (and there are plenty), there is a substantial number of people here, there and everywhere that push incredibly hard to see us succeed. And in a time where the music biz isn’t what it used to be, I sincerely mean it when I say that you make it all worth it. Success is truly in the details. Thank you so much for all you do.
