Season of Nightmares
The record received positive reviews from many critics including Rue Morgue Magazine, Absolute Underground and the Monterey County Weekly. 'Monster Mash Into the Fifth Dimension' also received a 2006 Rondo Awards nomination for Best CD of 2006. They spent that summer speeding through the desert without any air conditioning, in the company of close friends The Hatchetwounds from Bremerton, Washington, and The Massacres from Chicago. After both a logistically and financially successful first tour, SoN continued playing shows throughout Oregon, Canada as well as their home state until 2007, when the boys hit the road for a second time down the coast. Touring with California's Bamboula, Son the Blood, Sweat & Confetti Tour began in Vancouver, B.C.
It continued down the West Coast and again into the Southwest. It was on this tour that SoN made their debut south of the border, playing an unforgettable show in Tijuana, Mexico. Later that year, SoN appeared on several compilations including Flyer Saucer's 'The Sick Ones: International Psychobilly' compilation and 'All Revved Up and No Place to Go!' on Revved Up Records. In 2008, SoN and Bamboula toured together in Germany. After their show in Dortmund, the two groups travelled to Spain where they both played the Pineda Psychobilly Meeting in Pineda de Mar, the world's largest international psychobilly music festival. After returning to the states, SoN toured the East Coast of the U.S. for the first time with The Arkhams, which included their pal Sean from Bamboula.
Later that year, SoN recorded their cover of "Psycho Killer" by Talking Heads. The track appeared alongside a re-recorded version of their original tune "Exhumed" on the American Psychobilly Archive compilation. The songs were produced by Johnny Sangster, who has worked with Mudhoney, The Posies, Murder City Devils and The Briefs and plays guitar for The Tripwires and Mark Pickerel & His Praying Hands. Touring continued in promotion of the release. SoN performed at the 2008 Hollywood Showdown with the likes of Bamboula, In 2009, SoN accompanied The Arkhams on their first visit to the West Coast.
The following year, they joined power-pop punkers Shakes! on tour, unleashing their energetic live show to a more eclectic audience. Season of Nightmares is currently writing and recording their sophomore release. As recent as June, 2010, the band recorded four new songs in Berkeley, California, with producer Jason Carmer who has worked with The Donnas, Third Eye Blind and Kimya Dawson. The band continues to perform between writing and Phenomenauts tours (who Nick slaps for in his off-time!).
