Months ago Metallica had a contest for local bands nationwide to join them on 5 dates on their Hardwired Tour. DFW rocked the votes with Messer and Mothership being in the top along with Local H from Chicago. Local H won.
4 days before the Metallica show at AT&T Stadium Dereak Messer got a phone call from Local H asking if he'd like to join them on stage! He would be singing one of his favorite Motorhead songs, "We are the road crew ." He absolutely said YES!
I spoke with Dereak and asked him how the experience was. " It was magical !" he said. He said the guys in Local H were very professional, supportive and they just clicked when they practiced a few hours before they went on stage in their dressing room. I said " Wait... Singing Motorheads We are the road crew???" That's allot of words lol!! You can see the fb video below Maddox took. Dereak nailed it!!!
Local H had also reached out to Mothership but they are currently on tour in Europe. Messer decided since Mothership couldn't make it, they'd show their support and wear a Mothership tee.
I love this! DFW we really are all so supportive of each other in the local music scene here!
I asked him what's in store for Messer and about their new album.
MESSER has completed their long awaited debut album after spending 3 long years meticulously crafting this masterful work. With the guidance of their producer Chad Gendason, they have honed their skills to become a finely tuned group with a live performance that sounds and looks incredible.
The songs on this album are mixed brilliantly by the great Ben Grosse and Paul Paveo (https://www.themixroom.com). The final mastering completed by the legendary Tom Baker.(http://bakermastering.com). The icing on the cake was left to graphic designer and artist Craig Howell (http://www.cheebaproductions.com).While the band is currently touring to support this self titled, album it is being shopped far and wide to ensure it reaches its maximum potential to leave its mark on music history.
