What About That New ApologetiX CD?
Mon., May. 15. 2006 11:23pm EDT
Recording is well underway for the 13th ApologetiX CD, our first full-length, full-band, all-new, non-live project since 2003's "Adam Up." All of the drum tracks are complete, as are most of the bass tracks. Of course, that means we still have the keyboards, lead and rhythm guitars, plus the lead and backing vocals to go, but we have been rehearsing the songs together as a band, playing most of them in sound checks and a few of them in concert.
The new parodies are getting a great response from those who've heard them live, and we can't wait to get them into your hands, heads, ears, and hearts. We're excited, and we hope you'll agree with us that it's been well worth the wait. There are 20 songs slated for the project, and the lyrics are basically finished, barring any last-minute tweaking. As usual, the album comprises both classic and modern rock in a pretty even mix from 1968-2006. There are even two country songs, although they're modern country songs that have crossed over onto the pop charts and into mainstream culture.
After much consideration, we've finally decided upon a title for the project, and we wanted you to be the first to know. It's "Wordplay," our second-shortest title ever, just two letters more than "Ticked." Of course, many people mistakenly think the title of that 1997 CD is "Rolling Clone," so to them, "Wordplay" will be our shortest title ever. :) Look for more updates in upcoming newsletters, and listen for new songs at our upcoming concerts.
