Hey Fort Smith! We just got added last minute to a show at Heroes! If you’re in the area, come by and say hi!
You asked for it OKC and we have responded! We will be returning to Oklahoma City with our friends, Pulse, to Oklahoma City Limits for a night of in your face music! After multiple requests and anticipation we have secured a date with our friend at OKC Limits, Kirk to bring you a night of bad ass music, and one hell of a live show! Joined by our friends Pulse, from our label Dark Star Records, they will be joining us from the great state of Texas to tear it up and burn it down!
Bring your friends OKC, it’s going to be one hell of a night!
What an amazing year this has been, you guys have made this year a wonderful year for all of us here at A Beautiful End! We just want each and every one of you to know that we read every single post you send us on social media, we make it a point to try and meet each and every single one of you at the shows and hand sign every thing you hand us! The feeling is so surreal… words cannot in anyway express how grateful we are for each and every one of you that continue to drag yourself out to see a band from McAlester, Oklahoma play on small and big stages alike!
So back to business, the CD Release Party was absolutely amazing everybody! We held it in a small intimate venue where it all started years ago in Wilburton, Oklahoma at Eastern Oklahoma State College. We had our rock brothers Atrus and Sign of Lies from Oklahoma City there to share this special evening with us and you guys made it complete!
With the albums official release date coming up courtesy of our amazing label Dark Star Records and in association with Sony Music Entertainment, Planetworks and MVD, we couldn’t be more excited as we have already seen an expressed interest through social media and our shows!
We have some amazing dates coming up soon including our show with Jackyl in September at the Diamond Ballroom in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma!
Until next time….
It all started on July 17th, 2015… let us paint the picture. 4 great bands, 150 people, 4 1/2 hours of music and it all lead up to the biggest moment in our career! The bands were absolutely amazing… lets start there. We kicked off the night with a pre show VIP Acoustic Show for our VIP ticket holders. There is a video that was shared by a great fan that will give you a better idea, after a 30 minute acoustic set we did some Q&A with our very eager fans and then left the stage. Sign of Lies took the stage first and OH MY GOD they tore it up and really got the night started off right! Following them was a local favorite Shades of Grey and these guys continued the party by tearing it up and burning it down! They performed a load of covers and even some really nice originals in the mix… can you say Standing Ovation!? 3rd band of the night was our great friends and road brothers from Kirra (don’t act like you don’t know them by now!) and they lit the place on FIRE, we couldn’t ask for a better performance from any of the 3 supporting acts… they went above and beyond everybody’s expectations…a huge thank you out to them for being there on this very special night!
10:15 We hit the stage and open up with a track from our upcoming CD titled “Forthcoming” and the crowd erupted! From every lick on the guitar, every smack of the toms, every bass run and every lyric that came out of Dreaux’s mouth… the crowd hung on every single bit of it and gave every ounce of energy back to us that we gave to them! There wasn’t a soul left sitting by the middle of the first song and by the end of the set before the encore… our loyal and very supportive fans knew exactly why they had shown up that night… and so did we! Dougo Sims “our manager” and owner of Sims Entertainment took the stage along side our Marketing and Design Director Randy Kaster and made the label signing official in our home town by presenting us with a framed first run copy of our label signing poster… nice and framed! We then as a band and organization presented an unexpected (to him) copy of the same thing to Randy… actions spoke louder than words that night and we all knew that this is what we had all worked so hard for over the years!
We finished this epic night off with 2 more songs, including one request as we were ending the show with another song that will be on the new album titled “Runaway Child”.
There are many people we would like to thank for this wonderful opportunity and who made all of this possible… from the success, the label signing, the show…
A Beautiful End would like to thank first and foremost God almighty. We’d also like to thank Doug “Dougo” Sims of Sims Entertainment, Randy Kaster of iRock Nation, Sparky Sorenson of Sparkys Video Productions for taping the event… we can only begin to imagine how awesome this is going to be, Dallas Byles (also of iRock Nation) for helping us get some shows hooked up before the label signing show so we could spread the word, Darkstar Records / Sony Music Entertainment / Planetworks / MVD for taking a chance on a couple small timers from South East Oklahoma, all of our friends and family that showed up to work the event (there are so many to name.. you know who you are), you the fans for supporting us and buying our music.. without you this band is nothing more than a few melodies and some lyrics, InTune Guitar Picks for faithfully providing us with guitar picks since the very beginning, Silverfox Percussion for providing Jason with the sticks to slap the skins with, Mike Davis Music and Sound for providing us with equipment at the last minute (that’s some of that home town support y’all!) and last but certainly not least…. MJ Brickey from our local newspaper McAlester News Capital…. thank you for taking a chance on us and for the front page spot! We can not express how much the support means to us!
Please stick around everybody… it’s going to be one hell of a ride.. and you’re all on the train with us!
