Thank You –

September 11, 2015

Many thanks to all that made it to the first night of our September residency this past Sunday. It was real fun like with an intimate, speakeasy-type vibe. The band’s just warming shit up. And cheers to all the good folks working at Dirty South. We’re eagerly looking forward to this weekend’s show and sharing the stage with the wonderful Camp David, proudly representing Asheville. Posting vids and other content candy soon –

It glows like the sun, it really does.

 

It would take some time to completely tally up every single individual responsible for the making of this record; the CD booklet will be thick. A lot of life happened making this one, until the very end. It very well could be Full Catastrophe II.

 

But, I did it – we did it. To amandla’s supporters, to my family and my friends, thank you –

In the shed with a few of the core amandla; Dave Gilbert on guitar and drummer Kent Spillman. Sounds rocking.

 

Time for a long-needed update on amandla and the new record.

 

As records do, they sometimes end up taking years – they all seem to somehow, even those with budgets rivaling Lockheed Martin. When it’s money out of pockets for everything to get jumpstarted, things take even longer amounts time, months rolling over each other. The funding that was raised was stretched forever and ever! However, really it was shy of what was completely necessary to see the entire project through to the end, so things get snagged and stretched out.

 

Then you get work, it’s great work, its what you do, you do it, duh of  course, that’s the way it goes. And then you do more work, and more work –

 

Then you’re back. A finished record finally ready to master, a good studio to do you a good deal, players to assemble, get set go. Which is where we’re at! Things will start to be moving fast with some local regional stuff and a May/June Asheville residency while the fundraisers marinate with their record copies (and perks) and we set a release date. We’re also working into some of these fun local festivals including the glorious LEAF festival in the fall.

 

Once we get this record done, we’ll crack open the bubbly that’s still there – waiting in Austin.

 

The praise from the released tunes has been beautiful. Chomping at the bit am I to perform the music with some of the most beastly players. I’m playing LOUD. I like playing loud.

 

Again I have to express love and gratitude for the support and patience everyone’s given me. This record was essentially The Full Catastrophe Part II. It’s my hope that it will be an amazing thing to have been a part of and a most rad point of pride whilst amandla kicks it onstage. Cheers and please stay tuned.
