Get the latest Brad Sucks updates:
Guess who’s got a new album out? That’s right, it’s this guy. And probably other people. Click the cover art to check it out and possibly buy it:
It’s called Guess Who’s a Mess. Ten songs of kinda loud uptempo stuff. I think it’s about dealing with people’s expectations. It should be on iTunes soon.
The CD release party is tonight at Zaphod Beeblebrox in Ottawa. I’ll be on CBC radio today at 3 to say some things with my mouth.
Thanks to everybody for their patience and help and support while I struggled through the production of this record and my other records and my whole life. Here’s the latest song I posted to Youtube:
Creep me on Twitter if you require further updates.
Hey hey. You can now pre-order my new album through this website. It’ll be out November 2nd and then up on iTunes and Amazon and whatever else shortly after.
Also there’s still a record release party happening.
Finally got around to adding a radial email address finder to my Mappy Email Signup app. Mappy Email lets visitors/fans select their locations on a map and save their email addresses. So you can contact them only when you’re in the area (which is more polite). It’s basically an open source Eventful.com that doesn’t hang all your contacts up in a third party.
The new version finally has a page (/admin/) where you can specify a radius (in kilometers), click the map and see all the email addresses that are within that area. So you can paste them into whatever mailing list app you’re using.
Album release has gone well, thanks everyone! Decent sales, lots of positive feedback. Still lots of work to do, which I am working on doing.
I rewrote the guts of the music submissions/you section and added all the new album tracks and source in there. Still haven’t added all the items I was sent from the new album release, but that’ll come soon.
Some stuff I need to blogs:
- There’s a Fake It remix contest coming up at Remix Fight.
- The Fake It cliche video thing has sailed past another deadline. Still trying to figure out how to drum up more submissions.
- I nominate this fellow as â€œhappiest to receive my CDsâ€:
My new album Out of It is (FINALLY) out! Please listen to it! Please spread it around! Please like it! (And perhaps please purchase it!):
It’s got ten songs, you can pay what you want, it’s available in CD, MP3 & FLAC. There’s no stupid DRM and it’s Creative Commons licensed. CD purchases get instant downloads and the full audio multi-track source will be available in the next day.
Welp, I had a good time at the CD release party last night. Thanks to everyone who showed up and anyone who jumped on stage at the end there during the crowd-participation part of â€œOut of Itâ€.
Besides the talented Dave Norris and the Harvey Cartel who played, musicians in attendance were Jesse Dangerously, Claude from The Peptides, TheHipCola, Meredith Luce and MC Frontalot was on a phone in IM capacity.
Out of It goes on sale for everybody out there tomorrow night at midnight (EST). Woooooooo.
I don’t normally â€œweb logâ€ my feelings but I’m actually pretty nervous about this whole CD release. I was all â€œbeh whatever dudes we’ll see how it goes, just another day on the grind you know dogâ€ until a couple hours ago when I became like "!!!! HOLY LORD". It feels like my future "as an artist" sort of hinges on it but then I feel that way about everything.
Honestly, I think the neurotic anxiety has been getting to me for a couple weeks but I’ve had tasks to keep me busy. Two weeks ago I was sleeping away peacefully and then I guess I tore at my forehead with my retarded talons. As you can see from the picture up there I managed to put a two inch scratch in my dome. That ain’t relaxed behavior.
The CD release party is tomorrow night. It’s sort of a drag though, you folks who read my blog and have been with me for a long time are not generally in my town so you won’t be there. So that part breaks my heart kinda because I love you guys okay now the vodka’s talking catch you later.
First batches of pre-ordered Out of It CDs are away! Release is just around the corner! Some people said they don’t hate it! I’m nervous as can be!
Thankfully I’ve got a lot of mail processing to do, website and source to get ready as well as rehearsing for the CD release party this Friday, so that’s keeping me a bit distracted.
I had it in my head that I’d write a bit more about the process of getting to this point but there just hasn’t been any time. So maybe you can use your imagination?
Had to get one last week-long sickness out of my system before the album release. Ahhh much better.
The pre-orders are all ready to go and will be in the mail this week! Thanks to everyone who’s ordered one, it slightly counter-balances the release dread I feel.
Also: everything seems to be happening according to schedule. Crazy!
