KillWhitneyDead Issues New Album Update
KillWhitneyDead has issued the following statement about releasing a new album in 2010:
"The most asked question I get besides 'who is Whitney?' has been 'when are you guys releasing a new album?' Well, I am happy to report that work has begun on new KWD material for release in 2010 (most likely summertime, naturally). The material is only in the writing phase and nowhere near being recorded yet.
"It's been a long time coming for most KWD fans considering Nothing Less Nothing More and Hell To Pay were both released June 4th 2007, but to be honest with everyone out there I just haven't wanted to write anything recently (well, for the last 2 years actually). I have chatted with so many fans over the years about 'inspiration' and how that is important to KWD's music. KWD is not like most other bands out there in the scene. It is not our living, so we are not at the 'mercy' of the road and constantly having to tour. So KWD does not need to rush into the studio and write songs in a month so that a new album can be released in time to jump on the next big tour. We have never operated like that and, thankfully, NEVER will. So up until right now I have not felt 'inspired' to work on anything new for KWD, so I figured I wouldn't grind my gears on something I wasn't into doing. But, now KWD has entered a new era and it's time to dust off the mental cobwebs and get going again!
"Our good friend Metal Jeff out in Reno has been selected to do the artwork/photography once again for the new album. His latest work can be seen in our recent box set release. The album is titled Ever Thine. Ever Mine. Ever Ours. and is titled that simply because KWD is all of us. It is no longer just our creation, but along with our fans we are participating in this crazy thing together and the title was chosen to symbolize that.
"We are working on several exclusive components for the online purchase of the album. As everyone SHOULD already know I personally despise the digital sale of music. So I do everything in my power to make sure that KWD fans BUY our CDs regardless if you only like to purchase music digitally we hope that the only CDs that are on your shelf are KWD CDs. Ideas being tossed around for inclusion with our estore CD release (naturally none of these will be included on CD store retail versions).
1) Bonus live DVD (of archival footage we have gathered over the years)
2) Exclusive CD ONLY cover songs. we have 3 so far, so we will see how many we wind up with in the end. (these will be on retail version i am sure, just not on itunes version)
3) Exclusive bonus CD EP (this is the long shot of the bunch, but we will see how many new songs we wind up with.)
"We shall see what the future holds for us!"
