2 Girls 1 Band: Missing In Action

Well we may not have been kidnapped or fallen off the face of the earth, but we have definitely been held prisoner by our own lives most recently. Those of you who have been following us may have wondered where we have been and it’s been driving us crazy being away from our very own ‘blogosphere’. The truth is, that we’ve been putting a lot of our time and effort into the band and haven’t really had any left over for all the fun things, like talking about makeup and beauty! A long while ago, we started our first blog “2 girls 1 band” where we would review the dressing rooms ‘dressing rooms’ of some of the venues we played in which I have to admit was most fun and pretty hilarious to look back on. But it’s something we may consider carrying on under the Hellbent for Lipstick name if there is some enthusiasm sparked for it.

Alas I guess this is a rather short post to tell you all what exactly we’ve been doing with the band and why we’ve been surrounded by mic stands and cables instead of our all too familiar mascaras and lipsticks. Over the past few month’s we’ve been working flat out on the writing process for our upcoming album and part of this preparation was getting two new songs ready to play live for some upcoming gigs, the first of which was the Saturday just gone. This has meant full days spent in the studio rehearsing until our fingers and throats were sore, but we came through Saturday’s gig feeling overwhelmed with joy that we’d managed to pull off not one but two brand new songs in such a short space of time.

We’re still super busy with all the preparation that comes before recording our next album, but we’re still here we promise and will make sure we still get our dose of beauty blogging into the mix, even if it is interspliced with a bit of band news and us squealing mindlessly about how excited we are to be in the midst of album prep.

Here’s a few shots from Saturday night where we played the Quinphonic Prelude Party at the Barge and Barrel in Tipton. We had an absolutely amazing time, not to mention meeting some new friends with Rainover and Temperance the other bands playing – and our month away from the real internets truly paid off.

If you’re interested in following the band you can also head over to the Dakesis Website although we’ll most likely be shouting from the roof tops as album 2 progresses (however our next post is definitely beauty related!)

Totally hellbent for girls who surprisingly -can- play metal
