So what's Bazan planning for 2017?

Postby paulhewson » Fri Dec 02, 2016 10:59 pm

More monthly albums? How is he putting out new music next year? The ink and echo teased some scheme he and Bob put together.

and then i read this:

What comes next for you? A similar forced-release writing process of new music or new explorations?

One of the things that we came up with in that plan for balance is that forced deadline is really effective for me and I’d really like to have that be a part of what happens. Albums still seem to be the format that you can really get people’s attention with these days. It’s counterintuitive since the record’s been dead for 20 years, we’ve been hearing, but you can’t get people to pay attention to shit unless you spend the 20 grand to hire a publicist and do radio and all that stuff. The record is still the way, so I’ve decided I want to put out a record every year on my birthday, for… I don’t know. I feel like if I do it for less than 10 years in a row I’ll be a little disappointed. Maybe there’ll be an EP in there every now and again. That’s the deadline and this time, this first January 22 we’re going to do an EP. So I have that structure in place for releases.

With this transition, a lot of things have been opening up for me. I was in my hometown [Phoenix] and something about that place just overwhelmed me in a way. I realized that I had a lump in my throat for 20 years without realizing it. Whenever I’m there, I have this longing, and it’s all a bunch of unresolved shit that I never spent time thinking about. It just occurred to me that’s the next thing that I’m going to be doing. Just go down there and spend some time [there] every season and write a bunch and at the end of it, that’s probably where the record’s going to come from.

Hell yeah, thanks for the heads up, Bob. Miss you and Dave (and everyone else) posting on this board.

Today's the day, fellas. Banner on top of Bazan's page has already changed to a photo of Bazan working at a desk, with BAZAN and CARE superimposed on the picture.

Should we discuss Bazan tweeting that he's just scraping by mental-health wise? Seems concerning.

As a fellow scraper, I am empathetic but not surprised.
