You don't want them to write dark stuff because the fans expect that, while they're not going through any of those emotions in their actual lives and don't feel what they are singing. That would be an absolute guarantee for disappointment.
absolutely. Ttotally agree. and of course it's great for them if they feel like writing party songs and if they do I'm sure those are great. And I mean basically So Alive or Native nature pretty much are.. sort of.. struggeling-party songs maybe?
i dunno. it's really just a stupid fan's fear of being dissappointed in my case I think
It's not stupid, you just want them to keep up with the good work and evolve, don't you?
And to be honest: I was fearing party songs for some time as well. I find it difficult to explain and hopefully you don't think I'm trying to bash Simon, because I think he's great, he makes a perfect frontman for CD and has a lot of talent. But sometimes Simon gives me the impression he's more interested in partying and being a rockstar then being a musician. For example, I remember him writing on his facebook page when touring in the UK, he was actually glad he only had to headline for some gigs, because that way he had more time to drink! I actually found that quite appalling and a little insulting to the fans as well. I mean: I understand you're in a sleaze band, but when you start to say things like that so openly to your fans, who pay you and who's support you need to survive in the music scene, maybe it's time to cut back on the booze for a while... On the other hand, in his interviews he comes across as really enthousiastic about and involved in the band, so I haven't made up my mind about this subject.
Let's go, wings for victory!
I totally see where you're coming from, although I personally think that was a "okay lets find one good thing about short stagetime!" sort of statement haha.
No seriously I don't anyone to think I'm any negative about these guys, because I'm not. I never could, I said it probably a 18364238737312 times but I owe this bunch more than I could ever put in words, so they could probably do pretty much everything withoutb losing my support.
I'm just lloking forward to this album SO MUCH, that it's like... like if you don't like it something you are really looking forward to is basically cancelled! ugh.
don't really believe that will happen tho.

That could be very true as well! Let's hope so. Because just as much as you don't want them to make a disappointing album, I don't want them to turn into alcoholics.
But seriously, don't worry so much Viper. It will turn up fine in the end, even if they do disappoint you with this album. I mean: at least they will give you a new opportunity to see them live! And after that bombshell there surely will be another great album, great gigs, and another and so on.
Let's go, wings for victory!
About Twitter: I dod not see the point with it until I got an IPhone. Then it suddenly just clicked in. It's not a computer app, but totally a phone thing, as far as I think anyway.
Hollowood Tease: It's sort of a good song, but it lacks a chorus, it's a great verse, and pre-chorus, and then something that lifts it up is lacking I think. I know many loves it, but for me, it will never be one of the greater ones, unfortunately. But luckily, the taste is different in each and everyone of us.
And in general finally: I think what I've heard from the teasers sounds great. I hope the album will be as good as the teasers
New novel: "Ghosts, Drugs & rock n'Roll". About rock, sudden death, ghosts and a story from the past that repeats itself. Lizbeth Hellman about it: "Oh God, it's a lot like David's life too!" Get it at www.zorf.se (Swe, Engl & French) and support it for me at facbook.com/Zorf.se (Swe, Eng). The novel is in Swedish, but I'm looking for an agent and translator to English.
every time you hear a release date, always add a few months to the date you hear. Always seems to happen with every band and every album.
SO i guess a 2013 release will mean most likely no shows near the ends of this year when i am in Sweden
can only hope so. just a matter of waiting to see what gigs are announced during that time, crashdiet or otherwise.
I see dynazty are playing around the time i am there, but with other heavier bands i think.
And i know of 1 other tour that might be happpening, but nothing anonunced yet.
