As some of you will know, I have a Free Culture metal band called Severed Fifth, and recently I have been working hard recording the new album, titled Nightmares By Design. Well, I am pleased to announce that the new album will be released on Mon 11th October 2010 (the day after the Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat release!). The album will be available on that day at www.severedfifth.com and available for free in full, and licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license. The new album is far more accessible and diverse, it features 11 tracks and weighs in at around 54 minutes. I am really proud of it.
In addition to the new album, we are getting ready for our very first Severed Fifth show on Fri 1st Oct 2010 at Pine Street Sports Bar and Grill, 875 Rincon Avenue (@ Pine Street), Livermore, CA 94551 – things have been going really well and we have been rehearsing hard on a 2 – 3 times a week rehearsal schedule to get the live set absolutely solid.
There has also been a bunch of other Severed Fifth updates:
- Announcing the ‘Nightmares By Design’ album cover
- Video: inside the Severed Fifth rehearsal studio
- Video interview with Ron Crockett (bass)
- Video interview with Ben Gibbs (drums)
- Video interview with Jim Adams (guitar)
- The incredible Severed Fifth PA story
With Severed Fifth a full Free Culture band, we have set up the Severed Fifth Fair Pay system in which fans can help support the band, and that page now has an introductory video that explains how it works.
