“In any production, regardless of medium, what happens in pre-production can make or break the entire project. It sounds simple, but I cannot stress enough the importance of planning ahead. The sooner and farther out you can schedule the show, the better. Not only will the venue appreciate the lead time, but it will give you time to make changes when something inevitably goes wrong. For a release show in early April, we started booking in mid-February; and there are people who believe even that is cutting it close.”

Rory Lavelle’s “When The Crazies Come Out” has been featured on BBC‘s Across The Line, as their Track of the Day. Speaking about the song, they write “With excellent storytelling and goosebump inducing vocals ‘When The Crazies Come Out’ is an attention grabbing, edge of your seat, very dark alt rock track.
Made even more satisfying by the grand orchestral strings that combine into something very reminiscent of ‘Play’ era Moby, in terms of atmosphere Rory Lavelle has really knocked it out of the park with this one.”
