So in a world endlessly plagued with greed, bloodlust, power, the strong desire to say hopeful...this is the world we live in. In one tiny little place there is a country called Germany and a city called Leipzig. That's where White Wine lives. Frtiz and I have been building a studio over the last 6 months, in addition to writing and recording our next album. Oh yeah, and working. Working to pay for making the album and studio go and also just to eat. No complaints, though. It's been fun. Oh yeah, and then we finally decided to get a drummer. Sure we could continue as a 2 piece, but the things we were writing and recoding simply need someone else. That someone else had to be great, though. And we found him!
Christian "Kirmes" Kühr is one hell of a drummer and one hell of a great person to add to our little world. With him we've once again deconstructed how we are going to be on stage, similar to when I went from playing alone to playing with Fritz. It's a shit-load of work, but good and fun work.
Soon we will showcasing this new lineup and I can't wait. Playing with a full-time drummer is like going from dancing in rain boots to dancing in beautiful black patent leather shoes that fit perfectly. It's just better!
Next week Fritz and I are going to finish up tracking the last couple of songs. I have seriously NEVER spent this long working on a record. It is simultaneously anxiety-inducing and amazing. By this time next week we will have about 20 songs to choose from. I've never had this problem either. Usually because a release date is set with a label you are late to your own release date on the same day you set it. It's maddening. So, me being me, I usually tried to eat all of the compromise pills and just focus on enough songs for the record, leaving some, if not many, to die on the vine. I'm probably the only one who would ever care about this, but it's nice to try something different and not do that now. And hopefully...hopefully...you, the listener can tell the difference.
Ok, now I shut up. Take care. Thanks for your time.
