I know I’m doing a lousy job keeping you posted about the progress on the new album, I’ll try to fix that.
The album is currently being mixed by Alex Argento. We had some technical difficulties and had to find a solution, and we have. Alex was not feeling well lately, wishing him a quick recovery, and he’s also busy preparing to tour with his band Icefish.
Meanwhile I’m working with Richard Bastarache on a new music video for one of the tracks from the new album (Carousel of Death). The music video should be out by March if not earlier, with the album release following after that. No hard date, on the album release yet, as pressing LPs take a few weeks.
Last night I was quickly checking my Facebook feed before going to bed and a very familiar photo caught my attention. The picture was posted by my friend Alex Argento, the amazing sound engineer and keyboard player, the very same guy who mixed Solipsistic. The title of his post was “Here is where it began!”
The picture is him as a kid playing this red toy piano that I immediately recognized… because I had one exactly like it (mine was orange), and I have a picture playing it (kinda) too, so I thought why not share it with him and with all of you.
Alex pointed out that my hand was on the power button, ready to call it quits and move to another instrument. But hey, look at that left hand constantly playing the lowest C, trying to sound as heavy as possible.
This is how you properly do a Throwback Thursdays,not with a picture taken two weeks ago.
