    IF YOU MISSED THE SHOW LAST WEEKEND at The Rock Star in Fort Worth, then you’re in luck!  The same core lineup will be appearing together again this Friday at O’Riley’s.

    This past weekend’s show was a lot of fun.  Twenty3Fifty9 debuted a new song, which we will play again this next weekend, and we got to see two great newer progressive projects: From Creation and Millennial Reign, both of which put on great shows.

    9:00 – Hot Ash
    10:00 – From Creation
    11:00 – Millennial Reign

    I’d like to thank everybody that came out to the CD release party Friday evening, it was great fun and a huge success, especially given the early hour! I saw many familiar faces of course, and met a number of new fans as well. I don’t think I’ve ever talked so much to so many people in a single evening.

    I’ve been told we have some decent video of this show, so I may be posting something from that in the next couple days, so check back right here.

    And in the mean time, thanks to our long-time friends, Kevin Ehling, Dean Williams and Veronica Bradford, we have some pics from the show:

    This week the band has two announcements

    promo3Album Release Announcement

    This week Twenty3Fifty9 Twenty3fifty9 is proud to announce the release of their long awaited debut album, “The Count, Act I, The Soul of a Prisoner”, the first part of an ambitious progressive metal concept piece, with a guitar and keyboard driven sound that will invite comparisons with the likes of Dream Theater and Fates Warning, a song style that has been compared to both Kansas and Savatage, and beautifully illustrated with artworks by Ed Unitsky.  [read entire article]

    Though not quite a “festival”, as it kind of came together at the last minute, the show this saturday at O’Rileys bar and grill in Dallas will be an all-day musical journey into progressive, experimental, in some cases even avant garde music.

    Early in the day, be sure to catch ICE-9, the new supergroup consisting of members from Twenty3Fifty9, SpaceTime and Element-X — performing material from Queensryche and Fates Warning to Crimson Glory.

    Also — our good friends ASLAN will be at the show, be sure to catch their powerful set as well.

    Twenty3Fifty9 will go on at 11pm

    See you there!

    Also, if you’ve been wanting to come out to a Twenty3Fifty9 show and found that it’s typically too late in the evening … This is the show for you! This time, we will be hitting the stage at 6pm.

    Come on down to O’Riley’s on August 23rd, to catch up on the latest 23:59 material — we will be debuting another new song this time around, the final addition to the album.

    Speaking of the album …. This past weekend we finished up the vocal tracks so now it’s time to begin mix-down. We hope to have the finished product in hand some time in September–early enough to hand out a few at Prog-Power-IX, which Tom and I are attending. Look for a CD release party coming soon.


    Recording Progress and a Road Trip

    The final recordings are under way! Over the past two weekends, we recorded all of the drum tracks. Before mixing or EQ we can already hear that these will be the best drum recordings we’ve done. And of course Bill rocked like always!

    Today and tomorrow we’ll be recording the basic song structures over the drum recordings–the keys, guitar and bass. Hopefully getting to the leads by next weekend. We’re looking forward to finally finishing this thing up…


    June marks our first out-of-town show, we’ll be playing two shows, June 6th and 7th, the first in our usual haunt O’Riley’s, the second at Lucy’s in San Marcos–we’re hoping to see some of our Austin friends make it to this show. I’ve already got some excited email from several of them.
