as most of you know, we have had some changes this year with Aknew. the new line-up is ready for shows and finishing the cd were we left off. the cd will have 3 songs from the 2011-2014 line-up. tim and Ronnie will be adding guitar solos. we are working on the next 3 new songs to add. for the release we are adding the entire 1st cd as a bonus.
Great news. the recording sessions are sounding great. we are almost done with the 1st 3 songs and are about to start pre-production on the next 3. we are recording with our long time producer JIM FOX at Sweet Spot studio of LARGO, Fl. We have Also Booked a HUGE SHOW to start the new year. Thursday JAN 23, we open for NONPOINT at THE ORPHEUM in Tampa/Ybor. tickets are available NOW from any band member. we don't really have a definite timeline for the cd release. Summer is the best guess. we plan to hit the road for a 7-10 day Southeastern Tour to support the new cd. we thank EVERYONE for your support. happy holidays and happy new year!
we have a few shows this summer and are looking forward to seeing everyone. we are also gearing up to record the new cd. we have started pre-production and have written some awesome new material. we may even hit the studio to release a new SINGLE before the end of the summer! keep your ears open.
