Wow....  No Shadow Gallery posts in well over half a year (did a search).  I've been on a Shadow Gallery kick the last few days. They've been one of my favorite bands for years.

Not sure how I could have missed this, but I totally missed this awesome song, from some foreign release of Digital Ghost.  I stumbled across it on youtube and was touched by it.. Features the vocals of Mike Baker (not from any previous albums).

http://youtu.be/Y2LyXVwDyZ4

Man, I love this band.  I really hope for a new album someday.  Last album was really good.  Despite their singer passing away, the album stood with the rest of the catalog.  That was a good time, I remember the new Shadow Gallery album releasing pretty much at the same time as the new Transatlantic.

Shadow Gallery confirmed for ProgPower Europe.

I'm going, but I would go there anyway. FUCK YES.

Hey, I had almost forgotten about this band! They have been silent for quite a few years. The last studio release was in 2010, right? Or was it 2009?

Late 2009. After that they did a short tour in Europe at the end of 2010.

Wait, what? I thought they were strictly a studio band.

Cool, you learn something new everyday.

Did you ever see them live? How were they?

Yes I have and they were awesome both times, but the second was arguably better; they were obviously more warmed up from the touring.

I saw them, along with Nick, ZepplinDT, and Phantasmatron (maybe others) at their first ever show.  It was pretty awesome.  Afterwards, the band hung out and had a bonfire.  Very cool dudes, I hope to see them in Atlanta in September.

Shadow Gallery played a local warm up show tonight for friends and fans who are going to RoSfest. Had to be unannounced as with most festival contracts they aren't allowed to play nearby shows. Had a fantastic time, and anyone seeing them on the current tour won't be disappointed.

The only album of theirs that I have is Tyranny, which blew me away. I'll probably stream a few of their other albums this week, in preparation for the RosFest show. Really looking forward to seeing them!!

Well, they are celebrating Tyranny's 15th anniversary, so if there is one album to be familiar with... ;)

(Though they are not playing the full album, so don't expect that)

I'm that one weirdo who loves every album except Tyranny and Room V. I don't know what it is, man. Those two drag me down every time.

I need to marathon the albums again though. I think the last time I really listened to Shadow Gallery was when Digital Ghosts came out. Hard to believe it's almost four years already.

Last week or so I listened to Carved in Stone, Tyranny and Room V. It was a while since I had played any SG. Damn, still so good!

Have to bump this thread under some very sad circumstances.

Saturday night/Sunday morning, Gary Wehrkamp was playing a show in Stroudsburg with two of his bands, and his wife and son were in attendance at the show. While they were out his home and recording studio were burned to the ground in a total loss. While thankfully no one was hurt, Gary is a musician who makes a living as a musician (though not with Shadow Gallery), and so this means he has lost his home and his business. There is a benefit being set up for him, and I will keep this thread updated with info. Not sure what people would be able to do, but it won't hurt to keep everyone in the loop in case they can help.

Yeah... saw that on FB. What a tragedy, though it could've been far worse.

This is horrible, I hope he also had some sort of an insurance.

yeah that is very unfortunate. You'd think he has home-owners insurance that would help. But if a Benefit is setup, every little bit could help.

Plus the loss loved items (photos, clothing, etc) which $ can never bring back.

Having been to Gary's house and studio, I would say there is a 95% chance he had insurance. The questions are how soon that money would come back to him, and what it would all cover.

I've seen a lot of that, for obvious reasons, but I always wonder; if someone had been home, might the fire have been put out when it was barely a spark?

An excellent point actually.  I don't think I've ever thought of it that way, but you're 100% right.

It is a good point. But, depending on the materials in the house, safety measures (fire alarm placement for example), origin of the fire, and actual location of the person at given time, a fire can still be extremely dangerous. People tend to underestimate how fast fires can spread. If there was anybody at home, there would be a chance to save their belongings, but there would also be a chance for (severe) trauma (especially in the case of children). As far as I am concerned something can be said for both.  I don't know what their living situation was so I can't really say anything useful about it.

That said, I wish the family the best, this is a really tragic event for them.

Yeah, I wasn't at all advocating that I hope people are home when a fire starts, it's just my mind always wanders and wonders, "what if"?

There is a benefit show here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1660421960872254/

And a way to make direct financial donations here: http://www.madysangels.org/donate.html

Thanks to anyone that can help.

I just donated. Shadow Gallery was and still is a big part of my musical life and I always liked all SG members not only as musicians but as people as well. I wish Gary and his family the best.

Even though they've let their official domain for their website go and some SEO guy is using it as a PBN to rank random shit, new things might be in the works. But I guess since SG works in a similar manner to Valve Time, don't get too hyped up, haha! https://www.facebook.com/brendt.allman/videos/10155631632316054/
