I know, I (Tim) haven’t blogged in a while…I’m not certain if people even look at this site or read these things.
Anyhow…Souls Expired’s first album “The Defeatist Principle” has been out for a while now. We’re not certain if people have listened to it yet. We’ve given away as many CD’s as we’ve sold CD’s. We like it. That’s all that matters. We haven’t played any shows (beyond a few showcase gigs) and gave up on keeping our bass player (Randy) around. So…we have not played many gig’s since the album’s release.
As of my writing this blog (January 2013) Ali (the drummer) is in the southern hemisphere (with his girlfriend) on a 6 month journey/vacation. So far they’ve been to Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia. Me…I’m working on all these websites and recording demos for our next album (currently called “No Thing. Some Thing”). 10 songs are written and mostly arranged. All the bass parts will be written and recorded by me until (or unless) i find a new bass play by the time we record the CD. I plan on going into the studio and starting this next album before Ali returns.
I have also been arranging another batch of songs of mine for a solo album. I will call this solo album “The Truth Letters” as i had intended to do a while back. Some of the songs will be new and others are re-imagined versions of songs originally intended to be on the old “Truth Letters” album that i never released. Right now I have mostly mellow songs but who knows how they’ll all turn out. I’m thinking of doing “acoustic” type recordings with mostly just me singing and a guitar.
If people do actually read this blog it would be nice to know. Send me a message or “like” us on Facebook. I’d post more frequent blogs and information if i knew they were being looked at.
Greetings Souls Expired fans! Sorry for the lag in updates. We’ve been super busy with regular life stuff.
We have no gigs booked in the near future as our bass player Randy has unfortunately broken his elbow. That’s not to say we haven’t been working on things. New songs are in the works and we hope to start recording a second album in 2013…providing the world does not come to an end in December 2012.
The website is starting to come together. We are open to suggestions as to any changes or improvements that could be done. Email tim@soulsexpired with any suggestions you may have.
We’ll be setting up mp3 sales/downloads very soon…just gotta figure it out.
A “Band Camp” profile is coming too.
Tim is working on booking a solo acoustic show. Stay tuned for more info on that.
Thanks for checking in!
Our First Album
Our first album “The Defeatist Principle” is finished. We will have CD’s for sale at our forthcoming shows. If you live in Calgary, please email us and we can arrange to deliver one to you (or meet you half way). We will definitely set up a mail-order process in the near future along with digital download formats.
There will be two acoustic versions/mixes of our songs available very soon. Possibly in a single or EP format. We’ll be sure to let everyone know.
The website is being re-vamped in April. Keep checkin’ in!
I uploaded 2 more songs (different from the one’s on this website) onto our “MySpace”. Click on the MySpace link below if you want to hear them.
I’ve been tinkering with the website and how to put songs here for people to listen to. if you’ll notice to the right (scroll down if you are viewing on a mobile device) and you’ll see “For Your Listening Pleasure:”. that’s where i’ll post the songs. for now. the one’s i have there can be played on an iphone, ipod or ipad as well as all other computers/devices (i hope!).
i’m working our contacts list/link/page/sidebar next…
let me know what you think and who you are.
The CD’s ought to be ready before x-mas.
We now have a bass player! His name is Randy McGregor. He’ll be ready to go by January.
