The Skyline Social

This is a band that me and some friends tried to get started the summer of 2008, but we ran out of time.

The Skyline Social is a quintessential pop-punk band from Goshen, IN.

I listened to that Blindfold The Leaves song, it's really good man, lots of potential with you guys judging by that. But there was no vocals, if you guys can get ahold of a decent singer, that would be sweet. I'll have to check out the song with you singing yet.

haha sadly it'll be three of us singing (non of us being the best singers, but not awful) so hopefully it'll turn out alright. I'm stoked for it for sure.

Honestly, I quite enjoyed your vocals on "Micah The Beast of Sleep".

Makes me feel like I'm playing Tony Hawk on Nintendo 64 again. I like that feeling quite a lot

Ok I added the "Micah, the Beast of Sleep" song to the myspace just so we'd have something on there. I just couldn't wait till next week . Feel free to add us if you so desire. I already have plans to record like 12 songs over next as well as have pictures taken by a very talented friend of mine (he likes being paid in T-Bell. Works for us). I'm super stoked for this.

Edit: Still feel free to listen to the super rough versions of the songs and offer any advice or whatever if you'd like.

In case people were curious about the lyrics for the Micah, The Beast of Sleep song, here they are:

Micah, the beast of sleep
He can take down anyone he meets
When he kills you he will not make a peep 2x

He's the fiercest being of death and darkness
He will beat you up and eat your mangled carcass
His favorite hobby is frolicking in flowers
He sits on stumble (upon) for hours and hours
Micah, the beast of sleep

Micah, the Beast of sleep
He gets turned down by every girl he meets
SO HE EATS THEM! 2x

He's the fiercest being of death and darkness
He will beat you up and eat your mangled carcass
His favorite hobby is frolicking in flowers
He sits on stumble for hours and hours
Micah, the beast of sleep

Dance for us Micah!

The anthem of our Micah basks in its almighty and glorious reign
We love that guy, we love that guy
His antics are a little strange but still our views of him don't change
We love that guy, we love that guy

Recording is going FANTASTIC. We are still just doing it with our own stuff so it's not by any means the highest quality, but it is better than most local band's stuff I guess. We had a practice and good gravy it's so gnarly. By tomorrow night we should have four new songs up (including a cover song that you do not want to miss).

I thought that might be the general consensus.

But foreeldo, we had vocal practice today to the recorded t00ns and I think we're going to record them tonight and I guess maybe it's just because this is my first band that I've ever been in charge of everything for, but I'm more excited for this than any other band I've been in.

I've really debated putting these recordings on the myspace, as well, the vocals are just baaaaaaaaaaaaad haha (that's what happens when you try recording two people that just aren't very talented in the singing area haha), but I think I will anyways just for the sake of people getting the idea of the songs (although I won't start advertising the band until we get better vocals down). I do plan to re-do them myself tomorrow so they'll sound a bit better, but for now this is all I got haha. Please don't judge the singing, I swear when we play live it sounds fine haha.

So long story short, go check out the myspace and the new songs, ha.

Edit: I changed a bit of the vocals, also realized I really didn't mix much of anything but... whatevs.
