Yes were right in the middle of writing a new CD. 10 down 4 to go, there will be 12 for America i bonus for Japan and another for Europe. unlike LSA which took 3 years we've written the new CD in 8 weeks, with no comprimise! it turns out we love working at my house up in the hollywood hills, its secluded, lots of trees, squirrels and peaceful, i don't have any nieghbors so we can blast it out. its great! as i said in another interview this new CD might rival 'tooth and nail', i know thats a huge statement its up to you to decide. we love it, as soon as were done with the Florida dates and my 3 acoustic shows in December its full blown recording until its done, the release date is scheduled for may then off to Europe to do festivals, after that?
i will say that the new CD has a heavy modern sound, its still sounds like Dokken. some of the songs have the classic old school sound but some are a step out of the box, why? because thats what came from our hearts and minds. i had believed for a long time that our fans just wanted to hear the hits but as we see a younger audience more and more now we realize that Rokkers like good music, new or old so with that in mind we hope to please everybody while making ourselves happy at the same time as musicians. writing a song is like doing a painting, I/We have no desire to keep painting the same portrait, but like all artists we have our own style and it will be reflected on the new CD. just maybe some new colors you haven't seen from us before. thats the best way i can explain it.
peace to you all
Más o menos, lo de siempre. Al menos esperemos que en los conciertos vaya a dejar un poco apartado el greatest hits. También parece que el sonido pueda ser algo más "heavy modern sound".
Y aquí algo más que dice en una entrevista hace un par de semanas:
The new CD is awesome! Unlike LSA or Hell To Pay, it won't take three years. Probably since I’m now clean and focused, it's heavy, melodic and only took eight weeks to write. I love it and can't wait to get into the studio and put it down. All the boys are excited. It might even be our defining moment. It’s up to the fans to decide. I will stick my neck out and say it will be as good as Tooth And Nail.
I'm not a great singer, I have my own sound and always try to write from the heart and not follow the trends. We were at the right time at the right moment and all the boys were talented. It was the right combination as is now, it's the right combination. We do our own thing and if our music fans like where were coming from, God bless them, and many thanks. We'll give the fans our best shot on the new CD.
