It's on fire.

Hey floodbuds, what's shakin'?

WE'LL TELL YOU WHATS SHAKIN'...OUR BUTTS, IN OUR BRAND NEW VIDEO! AHHHHHBUTTSWOOOO!!!!!!!

Sorry, needless to say, we're pretty stoked about the vid. Abracazebra Productions did an amazing job (as always) making us look extra kewl and bringing the ferocious energy of the song to the YouTube screen.

OUR EP IS AVAILABLE ONLINE NOW! RIGHT HERE! You can actually buy it. Woooah. Fancy t-shirts too. How awesome is that?!

And while we're talking awesome, our best buddy Shane Pugh helped us tremendously with the shoot, so we'd like to give him a big e - hug for being so radical.

*huuuuuug*

Thank you, thank you...*hold for applause*

We've got some wicked fun shows on the horizon, and we're just itching to get out on the road and share some good times with all of you! We've got some new material in the set, so ya better look out (I'm looking at you New Brunswick, PEI, and Cape Breton).

So come see us! Buy a CD! Watch the vid! This is going to be fun...

Luv,

Your Floods

Phew. Now that that's out of the way...

2015 thus far has been pretty darn special. Once again, we were honoured to be a part of the Take it to the Tiki competition. Alas, we were SLAYED AND DESTROYED BY THE ALMIGHTY LIKE A MOTORCYCLE. Luckily, we can't think of anyone we'd rather be mutilated by.

Our homebase, The Seahorse Tavern, changed locations early this year and we've been lucky enough to participate in a few of the festivities there.  What a wonderful space and we're looking forward with much excitement to watching this Halifax landmark grow and prosper as time goes on!

We payed tribute to one of our favourite bands, THE BEATLES, and had the wildest time doing so. Will we take it on the road?  Who knows. WILL YOU COME SEE US IF WE DO, EAST COAST?!  CUZ MAYBE!!!

The year is still young!  Lots of tracks left to be made.

The Floods could not be more excited to share IT'S THE FIRE with you this spring.

There's so much to come. Stay with us folks. Let's make it interesting.

Love, Yours Always,

Floodland

2014: A REVIEW

Hello, Floodites!

Here we are again on the Floodblog.  

We're here for a special reason and that reason is to LOOK BACK.

The 14th year of the 2000's was certainly one to remember for us. We started the year off with a bang, signing on to the The MacIsaac Agency and placing 1st Runner-Up in the Take to the Tiki competition. Not bad for January. Shortly thereafter, we opened for USS at The Marquee Ballroom, which was, needless to say, kind of a big deal.  In the words of Ash Boo-Schultz himself, "IT WAS THE BEST."

The spring saw us commence our biggest recording project to date. ITS THE FIRE began in March. Recording this EP brought us joy, elation, sweat, tears, blood, floods, buds, fun, coffee, coffee and more coffee. It was a completely epic experience. We recorded in warehouses and lunchrooms, basements and studios and everything in between. Much of our time, focus and energy in 2014 was spent with this record. When it is released in Spring 2015, we hope you'll take the time to have a listen and think of us causing mayhem in an old carpeting warehouse when you do.

In the midst of these sessions, we played shows with Alert the Medic, The Town Heroes, Carmen Townsend, Jessie Brown and the Black Divine, Quiet Parade, Like A Motorcycle and a lot more of our local favourites. We traveled the coast. New Brunswick brought us late night sing-a-longs. PEI warmth, hospitality and perfect park weather. Cape Breton saw us lounging lakeside and shaking barroom floors. We made so many friends everywhere we went this year, we can't wait to hit the road and make some more in 2015!

NSMW 2014 was a definite highlight for the band. Taking place in Truro, Music Week provided us, as always, with memories and experiences that we'll never forget. We played. Drank. Ate. Networked. Slept in lobbies. Didn't sleep at all. Played in the pool. Interrupted security and hotel employees. Bowled. Bawled. We did IT ALL. What a week.

For the most part, that sums up our 2014. 

We wouldn't have much to talk about if you didn't read, listen, attend and just generally be involved in our journey, so thanks to everyone for being there!  

We'll try and make 2015 even more exciting!

Love Always,

Floodland
