About Domeshots: Domeshots just got off the road and are hard at work prepping new music for their sophomore album and playing assorted shows. Don't fear the band doesn't stay off the road long, as plans for a national tour are in the works. In her review of Domeshots' 2004 self-titled debut antiMusic's Joannie Foney wrote, " The busiest band in showbiz award belongs to hardcore industrialists Domeshots, with a whopping 180 shows since January (2004)…. But rather than sounding like something slapped together by a group too road weary to care about the important task of bottling their essence, this is a CD crafted with care and even attention to detail…. There is an energy displayed on every track that's palpable, and the walls of many musical genres are masterfully scaled." Check out the links to hear for yourself.
