Well, I got a new guitar last night. It may not be anything super special, but I got it for free-fifty-free. The squire is probably only worth about $130. I am at that point with writing that I am ready to go back to working on softer stuff here and there (indie-rock), but the only electric I have is the 8-string. So, last night I took a bunch of my old tour gear out of the closest and went to Guitar Center. I had a specific guitar in mind, but they didn’t buy nearly as much stuff from me as I expected them to. So, I went with what I could walk out with free of charge.
I messed with it last night a little in the studio, and it actually sounds pretty good. Even got a little something-something recorded that I like.
Now I have two options in the studio (record deathcore or indie). Going to have to start getting these old vocals warmed up. I haven’t done any real singing since my tour days.
Yesterday I spent a few hours plastering the above flyer all over town. I hit a few of the Starbucks coffee shops, a few records stores, book stores, and of course… the local Guitar Center. Within the first five hours, even while I was still out posting them, I got a few hits. I’m hoping that this turns into something worthwhile.
If not, I have two options.
One, keep practicing vocals myself and come to the sad truth that my vocal tracks will just end up being very much below the bar of my hopes and expectations for the genre and the release of this new album I’ve been working on.
Or two, I can always just do another Kent Hovind style sermoncore release. To be honest, I am fine with this option, because at the end of the day, this option makes the project less about me and more about presenting the truth.
Regardless of which route transpires, I hope to find some likeminded people of faith to create music with out of this old school promotion attempt. I’ll be sure to post updates on what comes of it as things develop in the coming weeks.
