St. Diablo is also working on a live video that will probably be out by late Spring. It should include the history of the band,early show footage,but mainly
it will deal with stuff that went on last year. Check the tour section for more information regarding concerts.
FEBRUARY 11, 1998
St. Diablo is currently working on a live tape of shows they have done recently. This tape should be available in March, so be sure to check it out. Also, on the show on the 15th, at Jaxx, St. Diablo goes on at 10pm now, instead of 11pm. See you all there.
JANUARY 27, 1998
On January 23rd, St. Diablo played a successful show to the crowd at The Sports Garden in Garrisonville, with Munch and Mr. Pane. They will probably return in a month or two to put on a show. Mark your calanders for late February.
JANUARY 12, 1998
Saturday, St. Diablo went into Pierce Studios to begin working on their new album. Also, if you need directions to the show on the 23rd, check out the tour section.
JANUARY 8, 1998
A change has been made regarding the gig on the 23rd. Fannycracker is unable to make it, so the band Munch will be there instead. See you there.
DECEMBER 25, 1997
Merry Christmas everybody. Just wanted to give you my present. I'm announcing a new date for a St. Diablo show. On January 23, 1998, at The Sports Garden in Garrisonville;
St. Diablo is playing with Fannycracker and Mr. Pane. There is a $4.00 dollar cover charge and it starts at 8:00 p.m; but the fun won't stop till midnight. Only bad news is, you have to be sixteen or older. Check back with the tour section for more dates to come.
NOVEMBER 22, 1997
St. Diablo is recieving some extra help on the side from their friend Vince, who they've named their Manager. Helping him is Chris Sullivan, a real good friend of the band's, who is now their Production Advisor. They have narrowed down the search for a studio and it looks like we might be going back down to Richmond but a definate decision has not been made yet. The Getaway has been closed down and the three gigs scheduled for December have been cancelled. Please check the tour section for more information.
NOVEMBER 15, 1997
Studios are now being checked out for the recording part of the new St. Diablo release. Hopefully in about a month, a studio will be chosen and they can get to work. A rough outline has already been sketched up for a cover. I think on this new release you will feel a more emotional tie to the songs because they were all written about certain events that took place in the band's lives. This album will have more feeling than any other album they've released and we all hope that everyone can relate to
what they have to say.
NOVEMBER 6, 1997
Basically all we are doing with this, is giving you the low down on anything that comes up. St. Diablo is currently getting prepared to enter the studio again, but what they are going to record is yet undecided. They have eight new songs, but they only want to release four at the moment. The upcoming gigs in December are all going to be put on video and audio just in case they see or hear something they like. An idea of a 1997 video has come about for early in 1998. We figure since this year has been one of the best years we've had, why not share it with the fans. Well, untill next time.
