Tavu news!

Hails to you all!  The Tavu blog has been quiet for a bit, and it's time to enlighten you all to what's been keeping us busy so far.

First of all, we have maintained our #1 position in the XRP Radio Top 10 in the UK for an incredible 7 weeks!  We are more than humbled and astounded at your spectacular support!  It wouldn't have been possible without it!

***(UPDATE: As of Sunday February 2, we MADE IT to #1 for an 8th week!  THANK YOU ALL)***

To help us stay there, click on the XRP logo below and vote for Tavu again and turn those 8 weeks into 9!  You can vote once per week!  The voting cycle ends every sunday!

Second, we have been busy writing and demoing new music.  The muse has hit us hard, so we are milking her for all it's worth.  As you all know, we tend to be very detail oriented in our songs, so the demo process is very meticulous.  So far, we are extraordinarily happy with the ideas that are coming out.  Our latest album, "Clamor Victorium, Clamor Silentii" was a huge step for us musically, and the new material takes that milestone as a starting point to push the bar farther.

We will keep you posted on that!

We are also in the post-production phase of the massive new music video for "A System Without Honor".  As many of you know, we filmed it during December and have been extraordinarily psyched over the footage and performance we captured.  The editing process has been very detailed, and we sincerely can't wait for it to be done.  We will be announcing the release date soon.  

Here are some preview stills from the video!

Some of you have already heard through our social media that our drummer David McCloskey had a serious car accident in December.  A drunk driver nearly knocked his car off a bridge.  He was lucky and survived mostly intact, although some of his injuries will take a while to heal completely.  That said, we will be focusing on launching the music video, pre-producing the next string of videos, writing new music, and working on touring dates for later in 2014.  We have decided to confirm very few live dates until David gets a clean bill of health.  He can't wait to hit the drums and the stage more often, but one thing at a time.  Good thing is he can at least pick up a guitar and compose new music with the rest of the band.  

So remember people, DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE!

So that said, we only have two live shows confirmed.  A festival date June 21st (which we will be promoting later on), and the only one in March.  So if you want to get your Tavu on, your only chance to do so until David is healed enough to book more shows is March 7th at Hells Bells in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, with our bad ass friends Abstract Forms.  The entrance is FREE, and there will be an open bar for $10 from 9pm-12am.  

We hope to see you all there!  We can't wait to hit the stage more often, but health comes first!

We are also taking the time to solidify some more delicious endorsement deals for the band, as well as for touring outside of Puerto Rico later in 2014.

Apart from that, we are making new merch for you all, so keep your eyes peeled!

Don't forget our album, "Clamor Victorium, Clamor Silentii", is available on iTunes, Amazon, and directly at our Bandcamp (where we also have our merch store).

We will be sending you another update soon, which will include the awesome press and feedback, as well as the awards and recognition, that our latest album received in 2013.  Now, to make 2014 as amazing as 2013!

We love you all!
