The 400 Club in Warrensburg, Mo., was a stopping point for Blameshift, an upcoming band from New York, as they travelled on their way to Hollywood.
Band members Tim Barbour, Jenny Mann, and Ben Fine played an acoustic set for the audience since their drummer stayed in New York for his girlfriend's birthday and will be joining them at their stop in Denver. They played a few originals and also a few covers including "Only One" by Yellowcard.
After touring for the last three years, the band raised $5,500 from fans through Kickstarter, and will begin recording their new album with Eric Ron in Hollywood. The new album is collectively written by Barbour and Fine with a different angle that is more defined, mature, and rock sounding. In previous albums, such as "The Test" and "Blameshift EP," Barbour and Mann shared the vocals about fifty-fifty. In the new album Mann will do the majority of the singing. The inspiration for the new album came from being on the road and meeting new people through touring.
"I never new what the world was like until I toured. Everyplace I go the people are different but they're the same. At every show there is always that guy," Barbour said.
While in California Blameshift will be playing a few shows and will kick off another tour once the album is finished. Visit Blameshift at www.myspace.com/blameshift.
