Posted November 13, 2018 08:05:10The last time we saw Camfrog was in the first week of the year.
The studio shut down and its employees were forced to retire after failing to keep the business alive through the next year.
The studio had no plans for a return to the stage after its closure, and its members went on to form the original band, Camfrog.
Now, the studio is reopening for a two-week run in October with the new band, the new lineup of members and the re-launching of its website.
Camfrog is playing a handful of shows over the next two weeks.
“We really appreciate everyone who was involved in the camfrog success story, but there’s no way to put into words how sad it was,” co-founder and CEO John Kaczmarek said.
“It was an amazing run.
It was the beginning of something bigger than just ourselves.
It’s really exciting to see Camfrog back in the arena again and bring new energy to the music industry.”
The studio was a big part of the success of Camfrog and its success has been sustained over the years, Kacsmarek told NBC News.
“I think people have a very strong connection with the cam frog legacy, and I think it’s really interesting to see that happen again,” he said.
Kaczarek also spoke about the future of the studio and its new lineup, saying it’s important to the future success of the band.
“As the studio closes, we are going to start talking about who we are and where we’re going and what we want to do, and that’s going to be reflected in our new lineup,” he told NBC.
“The band and the team will continue to work together on this.
We’ve already started discussions with other studios about where we can put all of our energy, but it’s always exciting to work with other companies.”
Camfrog will play the next few weeks of its first run at The Warehouse on the West Coast.
Kaczes said he wants to bring in new members, but he won’t be releasing them until after the tour.
The tour is the first of the new year, and Kaczik has set a goal for himself and his team to tour more than 50 shows before the end of the month.
“That’s going too far,” he joked.
“But it’s not a big deal.”
