New Website, Upcoming Show 8/22!

We are excited to launch our brand new website created by Nathaniel Kraft!  The old site was innovative and fun, but the new design will allow us to easily keep the website up to date.  We’ve posted a couple new items to the Store section as well as new Video links.  Take a look around and feel free to add comments!

It’s been a quiet year so far for Karmella’s Game but quite the opposite for us individually!  Between crazy school semesters and weddings it’s been a super busy year.  Mandy got married in July and Aaron is getting married next month!  In celebration of Aaron and Amy’s wedding, we are playing a show at the Sidebar on Sunday, August 22nd.  Check out the Shows section for more details!

Some Bad News: Show Canceled

So we’ve got bad news – our Tuesday show in Cincinnati was canceled due to the house getting shut down earlier this week. However, it turns out we have much bigger problems. The van didn’t make it out of Baltimore without having troubles so we stopped to get it checked out before driving 8 hours to Knoxville. The problem ended up being with the transmission which is going to be too expensive for us to even get it looked at much less fixed. It seems as if the KG church bus is dead.

The good news is we’re going to borrow our dear friend Amy’s minivan and start what’s left of the tour this Wednesday in Nashville. We’re going to borrow equipment from other bands and make it work! We’re happy to not have to cancel all together and look forward to seeing some friends this week!

New Album: "You'll Be Sorry" Available Now!

You'll Be Sorry album coverYay! A new full length! You can NOW purchase the new “You’ll Be Sorry” as well as KG’s other releases from Insubordination Records. Go! Hurry! We are very proud of the CD and hope you like it too!

Our label has this to say about it:

“Karmella’s Game has built up quite a following. No wonder, they write some of the most infectious female fronted, pop songs imaginable. Their first two releases on Baltimore’s Speedbump Recordings are bright, hook laden and memorable. KG’s studio recordings have this way of drawing in the listener by emulating the fun and energy of their live show. Their sophomore album, “You’ll Be Sorry” is no different; KG has been able to sustain this energy. “You’ll Be Sorry” features fan favorites, “The Pit” and “A Test,” two songs that are sure to unabashed indie hits.”

Also, please keep checking back as we are working on an August mini tour. More info coming soon!

New Album in Post-Production

The CD is on its way to being pressed! Please join us at the release show, July 3rd at the Ottobar.  Tour dates will be posted soon. So keep checking in!

New Live Album Out Now!

Live Sessions album coverAs of today, our new live album entitled “Live Sessions” is available for purchase from the Insubordination Records website. Here’s a blurb from the insert to give you an idea of what it’s about:

“While these live performances are far from perfect, we wanted to give a sneak preview of some new songs from our upcoming album as well as throw in an “oldie” just for fun. Live Sessions is also an opportunity to present our music in a form outside of the studio setting. Beginning with our performance on Adventure Club, we wanted to let you hear a more subdued side of Karmella’s Game that isn’t often heard. Finishing up with selections from our set at Insubordination Fest, we hoped to capture some live energy that can sometimes be lost when in the studio. Hope you enjoy!”

We also wanted to give special thanks to those who have recently volunteered their time and services to us as well as those who have generously donated to our recording fund. We really appreciate your support: Gary Harthausen, Jennifer Stallings, Matthew Smith, Jamie Grace, Lily King, Quinn Callahan, Josh Venable, Alex Thomas, Jody Scofield, Matt Lame

In other news, we have 3 shows in a row lined up for April so mark your calendars! We’re on the home stretch with mixing the new album and are still shooting for a June release!

4/16 – The Black Cat (DC)
4/17 – The Sidebar (Baltimore)
