U.S. blogger Charlie Deitch of Pittsburgh City Paper stumbled upon The Danger Bees quite by accident last year when he found singer David Macmichael's YouTube version of "Lover Please." Now it sounds as if he might be hooked. The man really digs the whole album, Wyatt, "from beginning to end" and is hoping The Bees will tour in the States. Let the campaign begin!

September 26, 2012

As some of you may know, we have started shooting a video for our new single "Standing Still". We are only in the preliminary stages right now and we need your help to finish it up!

We're looking for kids (male and female) aged 11-13 for a birthday party scene with a macabre twist. Don't worry, it's going to be G rated. Think Lord of the Flies meets the Goonies (not Friday the 13th). We're looking for volunteers who don't mind being on camera and can spend a day shooting. The date is going to be October 13th and we will be shooting on location (at a house) in North Toronto. It is going to be a non-union shoot. Please forward this to anyone you think might be able to help us out. We can be contacted at [email protected]. Please include a head shot/photo and a resume if possible.

Harvey’s, a bottle of wine, assorted beer and cigarette breaks helped fuel The Danger Bees latest recording session at Jesse Smith’s Oshawa studio. Produced by Luther Mallory, the band cut five brand new songs — “The Girls I Call (Don’t Call Me Anymore),” “Who’s Leading Me On, “Heartless Jane,” “Out Of Sight (I Must Be Out Of My Mind)” and “Bed Song” — which are currently being mixed and mastered. They will be added to the existing three songs, “Good Year,” “Why Won’t You Listen” and “Awkward Guy,” to make what kids today call an album.
