Life Like Thunderstorms

Update (June 30th, 2016): I took about a 9 month hiatus from Life Like Thunderstorms. I am going to try to start things back up.  Got a couple of July shows booked.  With little or now promotion at all album “Awkward Balance” and song “Mirrored Militia” have accumulated 41,000 listens and c. 7600 downloads (Free Music Archive, Jamendo and  Pretty Amazing!  I am also in the process of writing a couple more songs.  For the time being, I made one major change in the live performance for LLT. I will not be playing bass. I will just sing.  Too many technical and sound problems during live show to accurately perform songs.  That is one of the main reasons why I went on hiatus for so long.  Debated what I wanted to do.  I never saw myself as just a vocalist.  Not my personality.  But here I am, that is what I am going to do to keep this project alive.

    Life Like Thunderstorms is a live audio project out of Bethlehem, PA (U.S.A.) created by Jared C. Balogh.  Plans of a steady flow of playing live shows are in the works.  Principle theories of Life Like Thunderstorms are combination of my online and live music projects of Jared C. Balogh (Compositional Work), Trans Atlantic Rage, Trans Atlantic Rage/Balogh, Aniqatia and Pink Hex. If you like bands/artist like The Melvins, Beck, Ween, The Residents, Mr. Bungle, Zappa, Skeleton Key, Charles Mingus, Ornette Coleman, Bill Laswell, Primus, Beastie Boys and Time Of Orchids then you might find interest in this project.
