I have started writing a new Bastards album with Alex Scott. This one will actually see the light of day. So far I have 4 completed demos, and 2 more ideas in the works.
The last record “Give Up” never came to completion for a few reasons. It was recorded at a very fragile time in my life, a point of realization I guess. I had finally started figuring out who I was, and what I wanted. The lyrics were wrote around some situations that, after time, didn’t mean anything anymore. By the time Alex had finished mixing the record, I had moved on. It was time to move forward. I was in a better mind set by one thousand percent.
Alex and I will start recording soon, hopefully within the next few weeks actually. So far, the songs are faster, louder, and more gritty than the previous. Alex will being playing drums for this effort alongside engineering, mixing, and mastering. We will be self releasing the album digitally. We will also be playing at least one show this summer.
