Hey everyone, just wanted to drop some quick updates before I head to bed for the night. With me getting ready to move most of the way across the country I'm trying to take care of some stuff for the page and music before the long haul. I went in and scrubbed my bio today to make it easier to read and slightly more professional. Additionally, I rearranged the albums/links towards the bottom of the page so they are a little more streamlined and easier to look at, plus less space-consuming. I'm still writing music and will probably post a list of the songs completed thus far (though not all of them will be on the album) and maybe the titles will give everyone a hint of how this album is going. That being said, I'm about 1/3 the way done writing the total number of songs I want... so a summer release is still a slight possibility, at least for the initial EP. I'm also going to be working on making some banners in the next week or so to link to various other pages as well as this one. I'll try to figure out how to embed the code so you can copy the code and put the link/banner on your own page to show your support.
I'm really pushing myself to get as much done as possible before leaving. I'm even trying to get in one last photoshoot in GA, but we'll see. There are more important things, I think, to try and get done. If any of you have ideas for the page, or things you'd like to see on the page, let me know in the comments below and I'll see what I can do.
Wow... this is the longest "update" I've posted in a while. I'd better stop before you all get spoiled. Have a good one!
So, I have a bit of news to put out really quick...
1. The new album is progressing, if not slowly. I am now about 1/3 the way done writing all the material I want for it so hopefully I'll be starting demoing and recording soon.
2. I got official word today that I will be moving to Colorado next month (April) so there may be a bit of down time from being on here and working on the album.
3. As the new album comes together I'm starting to put together details. I have an idea for the album title and possible the cover, but we'll see.
I will keep pumping out information as it becomes available. Hope everyone had a good weekend.
Hey everyone, I know things have been frustratingly quiet around here lately. I've had a lot going on I've been trying to deal with. That being said, work on the new album was put on hold until things calmed down. Now, like as soon as I'm done writing this journal, I'm going to get back to work. I have a few ideas for songs that I'm wanting to try and punch out and see what happens. I'm still shooting for a summer release, but in order for that to happen I REALLY need to bust some ass. So, without any more distractions I'm going to go try to get some stuff recorded.
I just found out today that the internet provider I've been using is no longer offering service here starting around the 15th. I'm going to be shopping around for a new provider, but options are limited here. I WILL be back though, so please be patient during this transition.
Ok, so in my previous journal entry I asked whether you would prefer CD or download for your music. Most definitely the answer leaned towards the way of download, so here is my next question.
As I already offer the album as download and the EPs are ONLY download, what can I do to make the album more enticing? What can I do to make you more likely to buy an album?
All these questions are leading somewhere... I promise.
For some reason that's all I've been doing lately, and I don't like to, mainly because I know it does nothing to actually help. Sometimes I just don't want to burden other people with hearing my grief/troubles, especially when I know that we all have problems.
I know that I am sending this too all of the people on my friends list to see this and for that i'm sorry but, if you see this and have nothing but negative things to say about it. Please don't respond.
Honestly I don't really know where to begin I just like having people to talk to, I am not even really thinking about what I'm typing right now...its kind of a cool feeling not going to lie.
Well I guess that's what I'll conclude with, I hope you all have a great day.
My preference usually changes depending on the file format and quality the download would come in, cause, sometimes, you can only get the mp3's, and, WAV and FLAQ file formats are lossless and hold all of the sound, while the mp3's are lossy and the mp3 compression method loses some of the range of sound. :/
Hey everyone. So I just made it back to the Augusta, GA area and wanted to thank those of you who took the time to come see me while I was in NW GA. I hope you like the swag.
(Lesson for everyone else: if I say I'm go name be somewhere and invite people to hit me up, you might get free shit for hanging out with me)
Now that I'm back I plan to hit the new music hard. I've let myself fall behind where I wanted to be. As updates come out I'll continue to update.
Hey everyone, just wanted to drop an updated on the as-of-yet titled album. It's progressing fairly well and I'm really excited for you guys to check out the new material. Someone asked me yesterday how to describe it and I said "the angriest and yet most danceable music I've done to date".
There is not title for the album yet, so no concept for artwork either. I've only been writing the new album for a little over a month now but have 5 songs completely written with a couple more in the pipeline. I'm hoping to have the new album out sometime this summer, so you can expect an EP shortly before that, but I'm not making any promises yet. It's still too early to tell.
To give you all an idea of the direction of the album, here are the titles for the finished songs:
1. Anthem For The Betrayed
2. Rip It Out
3. Raise A Glass
A few other working songs right now are tentatively titled "One More Time", "Pretender" and "No More"... but those could change.
Anyway, I'll keep everyone posted as time goes on. Hope everyone is staying warm in North America and the rest of the world.
So, I've been trying to figure out why activity by fans has been so low the last few months on this page and others (do I stink? *sniffs armpits*) Well, tonight I discovered the answer it sucks, but not in a good way.
I'm going through my friends list and clearing out the people that have been inactive for 6+ months, something I do periodically, and out of 20 pages of friends I've gone through so far I've deleted TWELVE PAGES worth of inactive profiles. That is SO depressing. No wonder my journals aren't getting nearly as many comments, I knew I couldn't be the only one in love with my voice. *shifty eyes*
Anyway, I still have about 49 pages to go through, but I have a feeling the original 69 pages of friends is going to be down to around 25 at this rate. We'll see in the next few days...
Hey all, I've decided with it being a new year (PLEASE be better than the last) that I would start things off right with a new FREE download over at www.soundcloud.com/flamesoficeoffical . The song is a cover of "Disarm" by Smashing Pumpkins. I tried a few new things with this song including some new Guitar synths and orchestral parts. Go check it out, grab the download and let me know what you all think. Above all though, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
