New Shai Hulud Album Now Available!!!

Good news everyone, Shai Hulud‘s new album, “Reach Beyond The Sun” is now available for purchase! Head over to http://www.metalblade.com/shaihulud/ to make your purchase!

Longtime SilverFox endorser Matt Covey holds down the throne on this 11-song metal/hardcore/punk masterpiece. Featured on the album is one of Shai Hulud’s first singers, and current guitarist for New Found Glory, Chad Gilbert, who also produced the album. After hearing some tracks off this new LP, I have decided that is one of the best representations of Shai Hulud’s total sound and feel.

Check out this interview with Chad Gilbert and Matt Fox of Shai Hulud:

You can find more videos and fun stuff regarding this new album on Shai Hulud’s Youtube Channel!!!

James Irvin: One Of The Youngest “Classic Drummers” Out There!

We just saw the nice article written about SilverFox artist James Irvin in the most recent Classic Drummer Magazine for his work with blues great Microwave Dave and the Nukes. Microwave Dave has received rave reviews on his albums going back two decades and from all around the world. Since most of their performances are in the southern United States (Alabama specifically), I would strongly suggest visiting their show listings, find the closest show and have some fun!

James is also a multi-instrumentalist, who has been seen playing guitar, bass, vocals, and more! He even released a solo record a couple years ago where he played all of the parts!

Check out his website for more detailed information! http://www.jamesirvinmusic.com

James likes to swing with the SilverFox 5A and Sweet Pea models (two of my favorites too!)

So much good news to share!!!

What a Monday!!! I got some great updates from two of our top endorsers!

First, the one and only Marcus Hunter who has played with Sean Kingston, Dwele, David Sanborn, Lin Roundtree, Amp Fiddler, and many many more, told me today he just got the call to hit the road with THE FOUR TOPS!!! From early October through May next year, Marcus will be performing around the country with these classic Motown heroes! Congrats Marcus, that’s how it’s done! Marcus plays the Silverfox CM model.

Now on the other side of the musical spectrum, SilverFox Artist Bob Falzano (Shatter Messiah, Annihilator, Sinners and Saints) got the call that he will be touring/playing/recording with the one and only BLOOD FOR BLOOD!!! If you know hardcore, you know these guys have been doing it a long time and have influenced countless bands and musicians! Bob will also be performing with several of the side projects coming out of BFB and also Tenebrae featuring members of The Unseen! Bob employs the Silverfox 1A and 1A-Nylon models to ensure total badassery.

And there is always more but I’ll save some for later in the week. In the meantime enjoy this little bit of awesomeness:

Getting Back To Basics!

Over the last several months, SilverFox Endorser AJ Nystrom has been creating a series of videos (Tips N’ Tricks) that show and teach all of the different aspects of responsible drumming: from tuning, to set up, placing mics on the kit, stick tricks, fills, etc…

His latest video was about reading properly and we feel this is one of the most important elements of being a professional drummer. AJ is great at breaking down and simplifying some of the things some of us find to be difficult in our daily drumming travels.

Here is AJ’s most recent video regarding READING DRUM MUSIC:

Here is the previous episode regarding NOTATION, STAFFS, RESTS, ETC:

Please feel free to visit AJ’s website, WWW.AJNYSTROM.COM, to see what other videos he has to help you out! AJ also does “Online Session Work” and can help with pretty much anything drum related! He’s also a local boy and employs Red Sox jerseys, a strong Boston accent, and the SilverFox SF-1005 Marching Stick!!
