chad ginsburg and i have officially started laying down tracks for the next CKY record. we are approaching this record very differently than previously. we have been closely examining all of the music i have written in the last year and a half that i have recorded myself on my 4 track (about 10 hours worth), and choosing only the best riffs and songs to be included. this process has proved to be amazingly productive and succesful, because the 2 of us have been coming up with amazing melodies, rhythms, beats, and harmonies that we never had time for on our other albums. the whole band is very inspired because we get to work with the real music lovers at Roadrunner records who are supportive of CKY and...most importantly....fans of the band. that makes quite a difference when it comes to writing new material. the new songs are VERY dark and melodic. think "to all of you" and "escape from hellview". plus...we recorded a song tonight that will most likely complete a hellview trilogy! (or the 4th hellview song for the handful of OIL fans). its going very well, and i am very psyched about working on this record!
