Fine. I'll take that hit. I'm pretty comfortable with disgrace.

Let's take all the studio/recording chat over there.
Another photobucket casualty... :(

I know the track record doesn't look that great when it comes to AB, but maybe, until after we actually hear the finished product and it doesn't sound like greatness, then we can go ahead and say that it's rushed or whatever. Just my two cents, no need to @ me.


As someone who had written music over many years this is my personal experience: tends to turn out the best in two situations.
1. Catching that lightning in a bottle and running with it.
2. Coming up with an idea, then coming back to it MUCH later and revisting it.

In my experience, the more time you spend on an idea the more you overthink it. Adding unnecessary parts. Removing parts you previously liked. Scraping the whole idea because you've heard it too much and are tired of it. You end up driving yourself crazy.

I don't remember the pre pro/recording months from The Last Hero.... i think they're similar, but Show Me A Leader was released in the end of July, so hopefully that happens again!

If I remember correctly it was released on my birthday July 26th.

Saw Flip at the hockey game in Tampa on Friday. Talked with him for 10 minutes, the guy is so cool and normal. I was able to tell him how much his music meant to me and how I feel like we grew up together because I have been following his career since 1997.
Anyways I prodded him about the new record a little bit. They tracked 14 songs , usual release time frame Novemberish. Sorry didn't ask about a single.

Wow that's really cool! Glad you were able to ask something about the new album without bothering him too much. Seems like a fun dude to watch a game with

I was thinking the same thing. I'm surprised he got any good words in with him at all, given the colossal disaster Tampa Bay faced that night. :lol

Ya guys , this season...it's like a nuclear meltdown disaster site. Run as fast as you can, seal it off under cement, don't go back to it for years if ever.
I just have no words....none.

Yeah, I haven't seen a meltdown like this since the Vancouver Canucks didn't win the cup in 2011 (lost all of their games in the cup finals in blowouts which lead to a riot) and they got beaten in the first round by the Kings (who was the 8th seed) in 5 games in 2012. They were the President's trophy winner in both those years. That team was never the same for the worst for them after 2012. :D

All I wanted in that series was the Kings to make it to 7 games or win the series against the Canucks. The fact they did that in 5 games and win the cup, makes me a very happy guy.

Anyway, while the atmosphere was tense during that time of the Lightning game, I don't think Flip would be the kind of guy that would be upset for a random reason while talking to a fan of his. Snarky in a playful manner, yes. Very upset? No.

A #MeToo song... A crushingly heavy victim blamer? Or a delicate "we're here for you" ballad?
Now more than ever what we need
Is love to replace all the obscene

Hard to speculate without any album / song titles but I'm wondering what the art style / subject matter will be like this time around. My personal guess is they will continue with the digital art style and lyric videos.
