The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of productivity, but not in relation to the actual writing of the book, The Broken. Instead, I’ve been pouring my efforts and resources into completing the writing of the album that may or may not accompany the book … when it’s ever released.
To that end, I’m excited to announce that I’ve (more or less) completed 10 out of the 11 songs for the album, and I know how the final song is going to go, too! I have song titles for all 11, lyrics for 10, and complete recordings of 9 – and as soon as I find the time (and isolation – it’s hard to record when your family’s making noise all around you), I’ll have them all totally finished!
That being said, there’s still a lot of work to be done on the production and mixing of the album, mainly in the sense that most of it is programmed, not performed, and I’m still practicing my singing/screaming to try and get as close to a professional-sounding recording as possible. I’m looking forward to the challenge, though, and to having something at the end of it all that I’d be happy to share and distribute!
Soon enough, I’ll start sharing the lyrics and recordings; for now, take a look at the track listing for The Broken’s eponymous debut!
- Get the F*** Out
- Leave You Behind
- In the Fields
- What’s Left
- We the Freak
- Face to Face
- Take the Fight Home
- Let the Scars Form
- Inside Out
I can’t wait for it to be finished … and to get back to writing the damn book!
