Now that I've had some time to breathe it's time to update the pages, I've uploaded photos from last Sunday's Frank The Baptist show, put on by Hidden Treasure Music on the FTB facebook page. It was the best Chameleons show I've ever seen and we had a blast playing. The new songs (Which made up half of the set) were far better received than expected, good motivation to put out the new album. A big thanks to Ian P. Christ, Ina Diocan, Thomas Mixmeister for the sound, The Audience (Who were FAR too kind) and especially our cronies who got on stage for the sing along in "If I Speak". You'll see their mugs on the stage in the photos.

The vocal recordings for the pre-production demo went quickly and well so far. It definitely added to the excitement of a new album. Will others like the new songs as much as I do? Can you possibly fathom the size of the shit I do not give? :)
By the pricking of my thumbs something wicked this way comes.
Cheers and love,

Website artwork submissions

Howdy Folks,
So the framework of the new websites is already under construction and we want to give you the opportunity to submit artwork (banners, backgrounds, etc.) for the Frank The Baptist and Telegram Frank sites which could possibly be rotated between different submissions every couple of months in the future depending on the volume we receive from fans and friends. The framework of the sites enables change that allows involvement from all of you.

The doors are open and anything goes, all styles are welcome so feel free to send along things you feel capture the atmosphere and vibe of FTB or TF.
Send a private message on facebook or to:

Telegram Frank @ the Pech & Schwefel April 22nd

Telegram Frank will play a show at The Pech & Schwefel on Friday the 22nd of April.
If you haven't been to the Pech & Schwefel yet this is your excuse. The atmosphere of this show should be reminiscent of the old Speakeasy shows.

A Telegram from Frank: Column in Gothic Magazine

So Telegram Frank has a column in the 2011 Winter addition of Gothic Magazine (No. 70). I'm not sure when this issue hit the streets (Nobody tells me anything) so you may want to buy, steal, or borrow a copy soon before they're all gone. This one is a true story about an occurrence involving Yours truly in a train station in New York City.
