We are still awaiting the final finale of this record. We are waiting on Tha D. But I would much rather be waiting on him than Josh. It would be weird if the drums were not finished already.
Schedules have been the hurdle. Sure we have all the time in the world but our schedules have not been matching up and holidays don't help either. Tha D is getting antsy too. But the longer we wait, the better and more conifdent he is becoming, and his parts are blossoming even more than before. Sometimes time and thought can be a good thing. Just wait until you hear Let's Go To War. It's nothing like you've ever heard him do!
The mixing process allows us to be productive while being unproductive. Not sure where we are in that but Daniel Rice has been working pretty hard lately. I know he has 6 songs mixed. Not sure if anything else.
We are practicing tomorrow. More like a jam because Tha D is in the magical kingdom for the week. We all feel a bit sluggish because the practices and shows have been fewer than normal but as the history of this band has shown, the fall is just a bad time for ALL of us. So far we have two shows in January, and possibly two others coming down the pipeline. There are also two in the works for Feb. and another one for March. Hopefully one of these shows will be the record release show for the album. That all depends on time now. I have given up on a January release date and i'm looking more towards a February release. It wouldn't surprise me if we have to wait until March or April though. I graduate at the end of April, so that will be perfect timing. I just want this thing out so all these up coming shows won't be for nothing. I hate playing 12 songs that aren't available for the crowd to purchase. There is also alot of promo work to be done. We plan on sending this thing out for reviews and hopefully generate some hype. I've got an idea for a 3-4 song sampler of the album. Just something to ge the taste buds flowing. We are just too damn proud of this thing and its making us nuts!! Ever since I finished my vocals i've been pulling my hair out. I just can't wait for the world to hear this wonderful peice of work we have spent nearly a year working on.
