Fantazzmo then concentrated on the follow up to "Fantazzmo I: Enter the Fantazz." Fantazzmo entered the recording studio with producer, "Tone" and drummer, "Randy Cook" to begin recording "Fantazzmo II: Warpath" which was recorded in various sessions between April and November, 2014. Bassist, Mike Torres rounded out the team. "Warpath" will be released in late Spring 2015; along with a promotional campaign, new videos and tour dates.
Because "Warpath" would not be done in time for the upcoming Sturgis Tour, Fantazzmo released a five song EP on July 15, 2014 entitled, "Child of the Sun," which featured, "Lil Devil Stare," (originally intended as the first single on "Warpath") and "Can't Let Go," (which was previously only available to Fantazzmo fans via the Fantazzmo Official Website
"Child of the Sun" 5 song EP. Digital download available here: iTunes
Next up was preparation for the 2014 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Tour. Fantazzmo blasted off on a 3 week action packed tour of the U.S. and performed over 18 shows at One Eyed Jack's Saloon in Sturgis, SD for the Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Each show during the two week residency at Sturgis featured 5 sets a night by Fantazzmo. This is a heavy workload for any band, but Fantazzmo pulled it off with ease and kicked Ass!!! Of course, no tour would be complete without stopping at our favorite stomping grounds in KS, the Candle Club in Wichita, KS and Samuel Brewskies in Park City, KS.
Once the tour was complete, Fantazzmo went back to ToneDef studios in Los Angeles, CA to finish guitar tracks and vocals for "Warpath." Several sessions ensued with all tracks being complete by the end of October. By the end of November, "Warpath" was mixed, mastered and finally completed.
On December 27, 2014, Fantazzmo entered the recording studio once again with producer, "Tone" and drummer, "Randy Cook" to begin recording Fantazzmo III. Fantazzmo will re-enter the studio late January 2015 and is expected to complete the EP before the 75th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in the summer, which Fantazzmo is scheduled to perform at One Eyed Jack's Saloon.
