"Dating Myself traveled here in a time machine from 1996 and need your help to finish recording their album in 2012!!"
- Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins)
Yep, it's true. We are stuck here in 2012 until we finish our album and bring it back to 1996 to our record label. And we need your help. Lots of cool schwag to be had. Check out the perks.
The album has 12 songs on it and holy crap, they are awesome!
Here is a little story about us!
"Almost-were 90s bitch rock band, Dating Myself, have resurfaced after a 16 year disappearance into the “WTF happened to them?” file. Original members Laurda (guitar/vocals), Jessi✰ (bass) and Jen6 (drums), burst onto the West Coast grunge scene in ’95…well, as much as you can burst while on second stage Lollapalooza fame.
The girls claim they have been sent here by record mogul/amateur inventor/Mayan prophecy follower Doc Vig to record their first full length album and gather research on 2012's futuristic trends before the end of days. Doc Vig offered the band a record deal in exchange for testing out his AWESOME Bill-and-Ted-inspired time machine. No way!? YES WAY!
Carbon testing (they smell like cigarettes! Who does that anymore??), UK-made 8-holes, and the fact that they asked for Zima’s upon reemerging from Vig’s re-jigged Ikea cabinet (the ultimate Ikea hack) are all the proof we need to know the story is for reals. Dating Myself went straight from the ether to the recording studio to lay down the fat tracks they’d been working on prior to their 16 year long high-five freeze-frame.
After much confusion with new technology and a moment of silence for the passing of cassettes, CDs, and record stores, Dating Myself is staying true to their 90s sound. Prepare to have your longjohns blown off your memory-grapes and your evenflow disrupted…grrrrrrrrrrrrrrllllllrrrrrioters Dating Myself are back. To us. Even though they sort of never realized they went anywhere."
