Greetings from the beautiful country smaller than manhattan bigger than burbank + without any bubble gum on the sidewalks – Singapore!
About to go on stage and play our first show in Asia since 2007. Where have we been? Prison, yes, but besides that time does fly.
Thanks a mill to everyone in Australia and New Zealand for coming out and making those some of the craziest crowds we’ve ever had. I think I saw chopper in the mosh pit. Careful with those ears kids they’re still a bit sensitive.
The best news this week was waking up to find that we are nominated for FOUR MTV VMA’s!!!
(FOUR!!!) INSANE IN DA MEMBRANE. Totally unexpected. My first words were basically. HOLYF***INGS***. F***. F***. F***. Yea so what I got a potty mouth…
It sure is an honor to get these noms. I know Bartholomew Cubbins would be real proud. I think he’s in the hospital for a little check up so not sure he’s been made aware yet. But you can send your well wishes + flowers to…”The Emerson Psychiatric Institute – Greenfield, Mass., 70032″
We are so incredibly grateful and humbled to be same company as the legendary Eminem + talented Miss Lady Gaga. Its not often MARS is in such prestigious company.
Yes, it may be a long shot considering we are up against some of the biggest acts EVER IN THE HISTORY OF MUSIC.
BUT… we will have fun with this battle and we will not go down without a fight! I wouldn’t be totally shocked if the ECHELON surprised a few people out there… And I’m not the only one…
And as I’ve said before… who knows – if you’re willing to walk the path of the dreamer, anything is possible.

Here’s a pic of people waiting to get into our Auckland, New Zealand show. I snuck up to this area and snapped it while no one was looking but then someone spotted me and all hell broke loose, ha! The show was epic, those kiwis know how to have fun!!!
Back in Asia again! Its been about three years since we have been back here and this is the first time we have been to Singapore. I took this photo from my balcony and just couldn’t believe how amazing looking this city is. All I could think of was this old book of drawings and paintings by an artist named “Sid Mead” that my dad had. This place could have been plucked right out of his books and placed here.
Such amazingly nice people, super clean streets, and damn good food too. It was great to finally play a show here after talking about it for so long. I really hope that we will come back here sooner than later and maybe do an entire Asia tour! Japan, here we come!!!
Russ from Ohio sent in this shot of his ceiling-grazing MarsHawk. Do YOU have a MarsHawk? Send your photo, name, and location to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to be featured in the next installment of Transmission!
Echelon of Spain killed two birds with one stone—forming their own Triad out of flyers prior to passing them out on the street, and posting them around town. Check it out below:
