Many thanks to all you you who helped make The Defiant album happen by being part of this Pledge Campaign. It’s been a roller-coaster ride, you’ve been wonderful and the message I’m getting is we made a pretty amazing album into the bargain.
Tomorrow night (Saturday 4th April) The Men They Couldn’t Hang are headlining 02 Shepherds Bush Empire again – one year on from our 30th anniversary celebration – as a way of rounding off things. We have great support bands in the shape of Merry Hell and The London Sewage Company. And, we’d love to see you there too.
Many people have been in touch and said how much they enjoyed the whole Pledge experience and are kind of sad when it finished. Many people also said that I should do a new solo album following on from The Godforsaken Voyage (http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00BBF9QP8). So, I have decided to tie the two in together and launch a Pledge Campaign to make a new solo album …ringing in plenty of guests …some very familiar to you and others not so. Let me know what suggestions you can think of for Exclusives …one I’m thinking of is a demo album of all the tracks I’m considering for the album…. maybe even releasing them to you 1 at a time until I have a whole bunch and then producing a limited edition CD. Then ask you to pick the final list of songs and I’ll work with a producer to arrange and record the songs for a final release.
I’m open to other ideas though and look forward to getting this project underway soon.
