Alright, a few things before I get into today’s post. The Poetry section has been approved for Emo Rawr, so from now on, every Monday a new poem will be posted by someone from one of the two forums. If you want your poetry published on the site, please submit it via the Promote section of the Emo Rawr forum. Be forewarned though that there are a lot of poems in front of yours and poetry is only going to be posted once a week so it will probably be a VERY long time before yours gets posted. In fact, I can make a pretty safe estimate that there’s enough poetry in the forum right now for about half a years worth of posts, if not more.

The dating site has also been approved, which I’m currently working on but running into quite a few bumps in the road. I’m not 100% sure that it will be going up any time soon as I’m currently facing a lot of programming issues with the software. Making it compatible with my current hosting account is a real bitch, to say the least, which is a good indication as to why the other dating site ended up going down during the move. Having said that, you’ll know when it’s up and running when the word/words “Dating”/”Emo Dating” have been added to the top navigation bar. I make no guarantees of when that will be though.

The first novella of the Emo Rawr novella series is in editing phase right now. I had a lot of time to work on it yesterday so it’s coming along much faster than expected. There’s a possibility it will end up being released on March 1st after all despite me just having posted a few days ago that it wouldn’t be available until April 1st. I’ll keep you posted on that.

Having said all of that, on to your regular scheduled programming

12 Step Romance

Band Members:

Adam Frie – Singer/Guitarist
Anthony Garbarino – Drummer
James Kline – Bassist

12 Step Romance is an emo/punk band from Southeastern, PA. I personally think they’re really good, though I have yet to be able to find any of their music on a download site or on CD. I was also unable to dig up any pictures of the band aside from an album cover and there really wasn’t a whole lot of info about them online. I think this is one band that didn’t quite make it, but should have.

I really like their song “A Lovely Day for Roses”. Their music is soft yet filled with emotion. No screamo with these guys, so if that’s your thing then you might want to pass on checking them out.

Then only information I could find on 12 Step Romance’s vitality is that they’re currently looking for a record label and spots on larger tours. Up to this point they’ve only opened for less well known bands, such as: Catch 22, Saves The Day, Ash, and Ridlin Kids. I tried to check out their website but it was down, which isn’t a good indication of the band’s current status. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if they resurface, though it looks fairly doubtful. Sad stuff. Anyways, I highly recommend checking them out if you’re interested in the softer angst ridden side of emo music.
