Montezuma DONTON ANNAT Machine

Thursday night, we're bringing the noise to downtown Nashville. We haven't played downtown downtown (Lower Broadway for you locals keeping score at home) in about two years and some change so we're excited to be back. We're sharing the stage with two sick acts. The Jonathan Scales Fourchestra are a sick steel pan fronted instrumental group from Asheville, North Carolina who also have one of the punniest band names I've heard in a while. Also joining us are Two Bit Charlie, another Nashville group that we're stoked to be playing with. Here's some eyecandy for y'all, we'll see you guys at The Attic!

Saturday night at the Grind was a good time, the world needs more divey, cash only, haunted, late night coffee and hookah joints and the places like this that exist already need to have shows more often. Pre-production and click mapping continues, as does our Kickstarter campaign! We have met and exceeded our goal, if you want to get some cool stuff for pretty cheap and help us out with the record, you still have 13 days to donate.

More from us soon!  <3 MFM

Montezuma We Did It! Machine

Thanks to beautiful people like you, we have reached and surpassed our Kickstarter goal!

There are still 20 days left in the campaign for those who still want to chip in, we have great incentives for you guys. The link is right here.
In other news, we helped raise $700 the other night at the benefit show. All of the acts were superb, it was a great bill to be a part of. We're playing on the 25th at a new venue in the Boro called The Speedshop, here are the applicable details.

The pre-production for the new record has begun and so has the long process of making our first LP. They don't tell you about all of the work that goes behind making a record when you hear Metallica for the first time when you're 13 but we're really excited to be taking these preliminary steps. We have some great material in the works for you guys that we're really stoked to lay down. All for now, cheers!

Edit: The venue for the 25th has changed to The Grind! Same Bat place, same Bat time

Montezuma First Post Machine

What's up?

We are Montezuma Fire Machine from Nashville, Tennessee. You can download our EP "Frown Like a Lord" for free on our Soundcloud page. 

We are in the midst of our Kickstarter campaign! If you've been to a show or have heard the EP and like what you hear, here's a really good way to get directly involved in helping us record our full length album. We have a lot of cool stuff in it for you if you donate. Check it out!

August has some cool stuff in store for us!
  • We're making our Indiana debut at the Green Stock Music Fest in Nashville, Indiana. We play on Friday the 10th at 6:30
  • Our buddy Matt Phillips is putting together a benefit show at the Exit/In in our Nashville on August 15th. Our buddies Deep Machine and Triggerman (who just finished tracking their new record!) will be joining us along with the Smith Brothers from Roots of a Rebellion, Solo Jones, and Erin McLendon. All of the proceeds go to the Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance to benefit the victims of the shooting in Aurora. 
  • We're playing the Attic in Nashville for the first time on the 30th with a sick group called The Jonathan Scales Fourchestra. We're super pumped for this show, these dudes are intensely talented.
Thank you for reading the inaugural post, check back for updates soon!

Edit: It turns out that the show on the 30th is actually at the Attic and not the Basement, sorry for the confusion.
