It’s been two months since Road to Ruin came out, and listeners have been slowly digesting the nutritious riffs contained within, so what’s next on the menu?
I have to confess that there is no solid plan right now! I put myself under a lot of strain to complete the album by June, and once it was released and I’d done a gig to celebrate the release, I took some time off from working on Myopic Empire to do other things or just practice my singing. It felt good to take a little break, but now I’m getting back into thinking about the next step.
Luckily for me, I think ahead and have lots of songs that are in various states that I am starting to work on and bring together into the next releases. I will be releasing a second album, and have several songs in the works for this already. I also have plans for an EP, so I plan to release the EP first and then the album. When these will be, I am reluctant to say – specifying dates this far in advance is a very bad idea! All I can say is that the wait between releases will be smaller than it has been in the past, which can only be a good thing, right?
Some people have asked if the Lucifer’s Fall split will be available in a physical format. This might happen – there have been talks with a label but they have been put on hold for the time being. If that doesn’t happen, then in future I will try to do something along the lines of a compilation, on CD, of all the previously digital-only tracks. This won’t be for a while though, as there aren’t currently many digital only tracks available!
I hope to produce another music video at some point. Releasing Wild One was really exciting, people have enjoyed watching it, and I hope to do something as interesting in the future. I’m currently in discussions with Potato Demon Productions about possibly producing another animated video.
So in summary, there are some exciting plans! Continue enjoying Road to Ruin and the LF split while I head dive back into my writing process to produce the next installment!
