Other than some weekend warrior gigs, most of Sam and the band’s activity has been behind the scenes for the last few months. To tide you over for that new record, here’s a live performance of one of the new tracks from last weekend’s performance at The Dock in Ithaca, NY.
“The Haunt” is based on the life of Edward Rulloff, a Cornell linguist who was accused of killing his wife and daughter, and executed for the murder of a store clerk in 1871. His brain is still on display at the university.
Our good friend Dan Cole, host of 93.5 WVBR‘s Tuesdays With the Band, invited us in to promote our upcoming record and our night of Led Zeppelin music at The Haunt on 9/27. Not only did we play six songs live on the air, we also debuted the first single from the new album, “Lucifer Falls.”
You can listen to the entire performance here, or just check out our cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Trampled Under Foot.” Thanks again to Dan and WVBR for letting us make our joyful noise!

There’s been much going on behind the scenes in Ego Band land, not the least of which is getting our new record into the mixing stage. But in the meantime, we’re indulging in a very fun diversion: playing an entire Led Zeppelin album live.
