Bryce Avary - The Rocket Summer

is creating the B.A.treon Fun Club
Hey guys, this is Bryce Avary of The Rocket Summer. Welcome to the B.A.treon Fun Club. I've been excited about this idea for a long time and am so pumped that it's finally here. This is where our community goes even deeper. Join the Fun Club for:

SPECIAL LIVE STREAM MINI SHOWS (every other month)

Some of my favorite moments in TRS shows are when it's just me, my guitar and my piano with you guys shouting out what you want to hear... and I attempt to do that... for better or for worse. Perhaps I'll get to play some songs that tend to fall by the wayside on normal TRS tours. I'm excited about these shows as the wheels turn in my head thinking about the possibilities of what special themes these nights could entail. 

2 UNRELEASED SONGS, EVERY MONTH

High quality audio files, sent right to you.
These include:

- Album "B-Sides"
Unreleased / never before heard, fully produced and mixed meant for album songs. These are songs I toiled over for months but that in the end went to sleep for a bit in the decision stage of what does / doesn't make an album due to realities of "proper" album length. 

- Stripped down, Acoustic, studio quality versions of songs from records across the entire RS discography. You guys have often mentioned you'd like to have proper recordings of acoustic performances I do when promoting an album of songs where the album versions are fully produced out. Sometimes I too find the stripped nature of the songs can be better than a highly layered monster of a production. This is where that finally happens.

- Multi-tracked Live Recordings from various cities and tours that have happened throughout the years. Ranging from obscure loop jams to the most known RS songs, all with the accompaniment of your voices creating the energy in these moments that were captured on tape.

- Occasional, original bedroom cassette demos from the early TRS albums that have only lived in shoe boxes since their birth on these recordings. In the early beginnings of Rocket Summer, I made myself demo the songs using only 4 to 8 tracks, only one take through. These are the raw, lo-fi gems that I tracked before taking them into the nice studios where I'd produce them out by meticulously layering the songs and running the audio through the good gear. Once in a while these will make their way out of the shoe boxes and into your ears.

BEHIND THE SONGS
Once in a while, I'll show you around my recording studio, Sound Cirque, and show you around the songs. I'll open studio tracking sessions and solo out tracks, show you how I tracked the drums, the guitars, the stories behind them. I'm excited about this as my real life generally consists of my head being deep in songs and pieces of gear.

MONTHLY Q&A HANG SESSIONS
This is the spot to chat with other fans in the TRS fam. Additionally, I'll pop into the Discord chatroom to have monthly Q&A hang sessions.

RANDOM, WHO-KNOWS-WHAT THINGS
The beauty of the fun club is that as it grows, perhaps so do the ideas.
Like, maybe when I want to listen to an old record on vinyl, if you are around, you could join and we listen together? Perhaps once I finish reading a book, or see a film that resonates, we can geek out on it together in an impromptu stream session? I have no idea how frequent or infrequent things like this will happen, but I do know the possibilities of impromptu things like this are certainly there... so it's getting listed.

At the end of the day this keeps us more in touch, especially when I disappear into the studio for large portions of time. I want to bring you in to what I'm doing during those times and stay connected.

And of course by you being a part of this, you are helping keep the music going. I couldn't be more grateful for getting to make art, but every artist knows the logistical challenges of attempting to keep the lights on shining brightly in the studio and the headlights turned on illuminating the road to the next show. By being in the fun club you are helping ease that a bit all while having a deeper look into my musical world, and hopefully it's something that brings good vibes.
