DETHOLZ! come out of retirement w/BIRD NAMES
Buy tix @

Greetings, aficionados! It’s been a long time. Many worlds are colliding, many dimensions are being bent, folded and unfolded. Forgive my protracted absence!


First and foremost, thanks to all of you who have donated to Andrew Sole, our ailing drummer, whose condition shows a little improvement. He not out of the woods yet – not by a long shot – but he asked me to tell all of you how much he appreciates the support of his friends and fans.

He is currently weighing a number of treatment options. Your donations have allowed him to cover his many of his medical expenses thus far. Thank you!

If you haven’t already, please visit our SAVE ANDREW SOLE PAGE and give back to a great drummer and good friend. Like most of us music folk, he pays for his own benefits and is not paid very much to ply his trade. He really needs his fans’ and his friends’ help right now. Thanks to all of you who have donated and thanks in advance to those of you who will!


Colby Starck, of Bobby Conn and the Glass Gypsies, Head of Femur and many others, will be taking the reins as the Detholz! drummer in Andrew’s absence. If rehearsals are any indication, Detholz! will be able to pick up where we left off.


We will be playing through the new record, “Death to the Traitor,”  in its entirety, including a number of songs that have never been performed live.  It’s a bill we’re extremely excited about – BIRD NAMES is an eclectic collective making unique and strangely beautiful music – the aural equivalent of an exotic parakeet landing on your head!

After this week, I am planning on reigniting the Detholz! Mp3 Blog.  Again, forgive the long absence.  Between finishing the record, various scoring projects, two bands and two jobs, I have been teleporting in and out of this plane for the past month or so.

Hope to see you at the Hideout, June 7!

    Isn’t it just, bp? Isn’t it just.

    That show sounds so amazing I lost all feeling in my left eyebrow when I read about it. Curse this lack of 21-ness in mine age!

    It’s great to hear the SAS site has served its purpose. I do hope Sir Sole gets better soon.

    Keep it real, Cooperface.

    Bring the fire and re-ignite it. I’ve been looking forward to it.

    Hey Jim,

    Great show, I really enjoy how far the songs have grown since just hearing the demos. And with some that you’d already played live, they seemed to be a bit more thought out as well. Death to the Traitor, Stasiland and Future Wife were my faves, but they’re all sounding solid. That’s quite a batch of well-crafted rock songs.

    Could you post the set list, or at least the preliminary album order? Some of the songs I don’t know the titles to so it’s hard to know what exactly we heard.
