The Von Bondies are ready to return . The Detroit rockers plan to tour in support of the begin recording the follow-up to last year's
Pawn Shoppe Heart soon.
Frontman Jason Stollsteimer, guitarist Marcie Bolen and drummer Don Blum ,bassist Yasmeen Smith will soon begin the tour once a release date is set for the near complete new LP.
Stollsteimer, the primary songwriter, has recently also drawn on the songwriting talents of his fellow Von Bondies.
"We didn't know how to play our instruments when we did our first record, [2001's Lack of Communication]," Stollsteimer says, "so it was more open to just me being the main person. With this new record,the band is even more in synch. I've been pushing them to because I want to know what they can come up with.

Basically almost finished, Jason told me recently that the new album is yet another branching out in sound for the band. While remaining true to his love of blues based rock, the new album will introduce more synth ( nothing could make me happier, as I am a HUGE synth fan)into that patented Von Bondie sound. "The songs are changing and so are we," Stollsteimer says, "so we want somebody who fits where we're at musically. I think that having every record sound the same gets really boring. "

Amen to that. As Detroiters know, Marcie has recently done work outside of the Bondies with local rapper Esquire as well as Taylor Hollingsworth. It can only mean a more spirited album, this time around. If Pawn Shoppe Heart was any indication of how good this band has become, I'm even more excited for the follow up. Stay tuned.

what is up Von Bonders ? [04 Aug 2006|09:36am]

I heard from good sources that they are about to get dropped from Sire since the buzz about detroit is dead and chevy found a new band. Thank goodness, if i saw one more hipster at walmart with a white belt i'd go king fu on his butt. Plus jack white moved away and all so no rock stars left to punch Jason in the face for publicity. This community seems dead.

New Von Bondies board [13 Dec 2005|03:46pm]

Hey all... if you are interested I started a new Von Bondies board at Conforums:


I used to have the one at EZ Board, but after EZ Board had their crash and wiped everything out I figured I might as well switch. Not to mention that the ads on EZ Board were getting waaay out of hand. So, come on by, if you'd like. It's pretty empty right now since we're starting from scratch.

[ mood | mellow ]

Since this community needs a post... I am making one!

Thought this would amuse y'all.

I made it with a generator, but did some color editing. And yes, I have no life.

VB t-shirt [12 Mar 2005|09:21pm]


Hey guys this community seemed to short of die but I was wondering if anyone would be interested in this VB shirt I made. I would hate to see it go to waste because I made it for a friend but after I started it I realized I did it on the wrong sized shirt. And i'm too fat to wear it and I would keep it and make it into a bag but money is tight for me these days so I need to let it go. But it is one of my favorite shirts that i've stenciled and I would like to see it go to a good home.

It's a Youth Medium and it has never been worn.
I'll sell it for $13 and that will include shipping and everything.

There has been no posts for over a month o_O Sabriel to the rescue with a probably stupid question...

Are VB going to release anything else from Pawn Shoppe Heart?
