Friday 13th of February, 2015. Flesh Reunion is released.
I’ve been looking to the future (well, getting ready for tomorrow – we’re writing the next album). And nearly missed the fact that Flesh Reunion is out now! (I already have a copy you see).
It’s on iTunes (UK, US) and Amazon (UK, US).
You’ll get 13 raw and powerful rock and roll tracks with subjects ranging from death, to the number 13, to sleeplessness, to rioting, to wolves, to inanimate objects, even as far as love, and icepicks, and death again.
You should buy it. It’s only £2.49 on iTunes!
It’s Wednesday the 11th today, which means that Tomorrow’s Tomorrow is Friday the 13th. What do we do on Friday the 13th? Well, if we’re HowManyDevils we tend to release an album. Sadly we can’t manage one for every Friday the 13th, but we have got one coming this time. That would be Flesh Reunion. All new material this time (none of that 13ep here’s a song we didn’t record 13 years ago stuff), 13 tracks of the grumbly dark rock you should now expect from us. It’ll be on iTunes (UK, US) and Amazon (UK, US), maybe other places… And it’s cheap!
Meanwhile, we’re off on our next project.
(psst, free downloads on http://www.howmanydevils.com/fleshreunion – but if you buy it that would be great)
As Pete would say, Modern Living Is Killing Me (it’s a song he wrote and Sadistic Chicken recorded). Weeks have gone by and I haven’t blogged what we’ve been up to – I just don’t get the time.
So, in that time: We’ve had a good old listening session and criticised ourselves to pieces. And we’ve had an overdubbing session for Halfway There. I expect each song will have an overdubbing session of it’s own from now on, before we get to the mixing. We also came up with a stripped down version of Through These Eyes, I don’t know if that will surface at some point… Anyway, so long for now. Here’s another picture of Stumpy Boxhead.
HowManyDevils’ Flesh Reunion moved on from songwriting to recording on Sunday. About half the day was spent building our new home, the “medieval bog”. Not sure how medieval mikes, cables, and computers are though.
No monument to ill health was built out of convinience store food this week despite it being another chippy-closed Sunday. Pies and soup were brought in advance.
We got the live takes for four songs laid down. Insomniac, Carolyn, Set Him Free, and Halfway There. So nine more for next week… then drums, then overdubs.
HowManyDevils took a heavier turn this week with Halfway There. We’re heading in to Sabbath territory with the riff, and we aren’t afraid to go there. Song count: 4 for 3.
