Seattle’s Stabbingback has checked in with the following update about the band’s activity and working on new material:
“What’s up everyone….Welcome back to the War. Well then, have we had a monumental year of decisions and change. First things first, we truly apologize for the lack of updates to the site. After the explanation, we hope you’ll understand why. To ensure all questions are answered clearly, we will lay it out in Bullet points.
“Has the band broken up? No, but we are currently not performing either. The band spent some serious time playing gigs and learned one thing. Without new product or a new audience, you will lose money. This may seem like an obvious statement, but when your always being offered gigs, its very hard to say no when you enjoy playing live so much. So we have shut down to embark on a different kind of journey, in recording.
“Is there anything major to know about new material? We intend on having guests on alot of the new material. Musicians and poets whom will be revealed as the songs get released.
“When will the new album be out? The new album has taken a whole new role in its own existence. Instead of ‘Redeemer’ the first album, it will be the first of a project known as ‘Project Redeemer.’ Its a 4 album endeavor which includes rerecording the first currently available for download on itunes, cdbaby, etc. and keeping absolution as it stands now. The 4 albums in sequential order will be…
Project Redeemer: The Voice
Project Redeemer: Visions of Clarity
Project Redeemer: Westward Resolve
Project Redeemer: Absolution
“The band has taken on a very unique recording pattern to ensure you, the fan, will always have something to look forward to. Here is how the recording schedule will roll… Recording schedule:
-Rerecord Song from ‘The Voice’
-Record Song from ‘Visions of Clarity’
-Record Song from ‘Westward Resolve’
-Post a song from ‘Absolution’
-Record stand alone tune for sale from a whole different album entirely called ‘Turn of Events’ (Caught you off guard with that one didn’t we)
“The part that is really cool for you, the fan, is we will be posting the songs as we complete them, mastered and all. The only one we intend on actually selling at this point is “Turn of events”, which will be posted as well, just for sale. This means you buy 1 song, you get 4. We could be wrong, but it sounds like a good deal to us. We just ask you tell everyone you know to be our friend on facebook and/or sign up for the newsletter on our website, so we can let you know when new songs become available.
“That’s it guys, that’s how we intend on meeting our high goals and keep you, ours fans, our friends, our family, a part of this project. Thanks for sticking with us through thick and thin. To those of you who have been fans for years and to those of you who finally found us. Thank you for your loyalty and honor. There are good things coming. Talk to you soon.”
