HO HO HO! It’s Christmas in the desert!

Hello Frequent Flyers! It’s been a while since we spread the news on what’s happening with the band! There’s a lot so hang tight!

We just released a new EP for the holidays! Inspired by the frigid 62-degree weather here in Phoenix, these tunes make that cup of warm cocoa all the more memorable. Oh, and did we mention it’s FREE!? Consider it our early Christmas gift to all of you for your love and support! Word from the wise: if you’re going to re-gift it, don’t tell anyone it’s free ūüėČ You can listen to it on Spotify, Google Play, Amazon Mp3, Deezer, Xbox Music, Bandcamp, and all those other .com’s we love so much.

In other news, we were selected to record a song on Alice Cooper’s Taste of Christmas Pudding album for 2015! The album features renditions of Christmas classics from the best of Phoenix’s local talent. The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear! Or something like that. Our friends Analog Outlaws, Doll Skin, UFN, and Vintage Wednesday are on the album as well!

Last month the band spent a few days filming a couple music videos with world-renowned music video director and editors. The shots looks FANTASTIC! Right now we’re waiting at the edge of our seats for editing to be finished, but we’re bringing in the new year with some stellar promo footage! Huge thanks to all of our fans who came to the video shoot and interviewed for our press kit!

What else!? We’ve been catching lots of Pokemon on Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire! James is still trying to catch up on¬†Heart Gold / Soul Silver. Pokemon battles are definitely in order!

See you at Alice Cooper’s Christmas Pudding show! Look for the us in the audience!

So as you may or may not know, we have been hard at work recording our first full-length LP! We chose to record at Phoenix’s studio oasis, SaltMine Studio. This is where Lil’ Wayne recorded his platinum “Tha Carter” album. Since Lil’ Wayne has been such a great inspiration on our guitar work, we’re hoping to channel his energy for this album!

This labor day we finished recording James’ vocals for “The Villain”, “Whisper On My Radio” and “Alaska”. These songs are sounding so killer it’s ridiculous! James drank 2 gallons of water and downed 1.5 bears of honey in one day while recording these vocals. That means that maximum moisture and premium rockitude was attained!

Stay tuned for our upcoming LP. We still have 6 more days to polish up this bad boy and drop it on your doorstep with a love letter and a dozen roses.

A little about James Mills:

Born and raised in Tucson, Arizona, James learned to play guitar and sing in 2004 and started writing music immediately. Now he is a multi-instrumentalist skilled in guitar, vocals, piano, bass, drums / percussion, composition, and audio production. His musicianship has been a key part of the several bands he has started and performed in. Over the years, James has had the opportunity to share the stage with such icons as Weezer, The Aggrolites, Authority Zero, The Slackers, Badfish, Strung Out, Scotty Don’t, Ryanhood, Angels & Airwaves, The Frantic, and The Jealous Sound. In 2005, he formed a ska-punk group called Evil Fudd, which played shows regularly and gained a great deal of attention and prestige in Tucson. Evil Fudd’s music was featured on 92.1FM KFMA, 91.3FM KXCI, and 103.9FM KDGE. He released his first album in 2008, which sold 750 physical copies and numerous ITunes downloads. Shortly thereafter, he played guitar with Weezer at the Arizona State Fair, joined by Angels and Airwaves. After Evil Fudd’s hiatus in 2009, James played guitar and backing vocals in a few other punk / ska bands, and opened for Sublime tribute group BadFish. At this point, James realized that he couldn’t be in any band position other than lead singer / songwriter. Using songs he had been writing since Evil Fudd’s hiatus in 2009, James formed Retro Future as an extension of his solo career. The band has been featured on 91.3FM KXCI and has received contract proposals from record labels. In 2013, James graduated from the University of Arizona with a marketing degree, and released his second album with Evil Fudd. Upon moving to Phoenix in January of 2014, James was contacted by People Who Could Fly to audition for the part of lead vocals. The band’s chemistry has been stellar, and the tight instrumentation of PWCF has been the perfect compliment to James’ dedication, energy and performance.

James’ influences include The Pixies, Weezer, At the Drive-In, Jaguar Love, The Killers, Muse, and Phoenix.
