The recording summer...
The recording summer has been going well. It looks like at this time there will be 16 tracks on this new album, inlcluding and 9 news, the 3 songs from the Massey demo and 4 minuets. We will be taking a little break from recording in mid-August to play a show with our Jager friends, Northwest Royale and Domeshots. Look to the shows page for details when they are announced.
Moving along on the new album
Thanks for everyone for some great shows lately. We've had a lot of fun and it's a nice break from writing/recording all of the time. The new album is coming along. We decided to upgrade some more equipment in our studio and just finished two more new songs last week. Soon it will be time to record the pre-production versions and decide what goes on the record and what doesn't.
Recording news and appreciation
We have inundated for requests and offers for shows. First, thank you very, very much. We very much appreciate all of the show offers and are listening to all of the requests for more shows, especially the all-ages ones. We are right in the middle of recording the new album and as a result we are trying to stay focused on that. Yesterday was the first pre-production mix of the songs that will probably make it. We are ALL very excited because this record is turning out to be pretty special. We will be returning to our normal show schedule and road trips as soon as we're done. We PROMISE! And, yes, that does include another tour through Cali-state. So, keep emailing us, we love it. Keep listening to the songs, we love it. And keep supporting bands and music, because we really love that.
Happy Birthday to Mike
Saturday is the birthday of Maximilian Klaw, better know as DF9 guitarist Mike Krum. DF9 will up in Seattle for a show on Friday. Make sure to offer your birthday condolences there.
Happy Birthday to Keith
Today is the birthday of our big, bad bass player Keith Foster. Happy to have been in a band with him for another year. Feel free to give him some "special" messages in the guestbook. ;)
It's a new year with new things to share
Work continues on the new album. This is the most organic approach we've ever taken to writing and recording and we think the results will show a record really true to what we are. We're pretty excited about things so far. Next, DF9 is now on myspace.com so there are more places to see photos, download music, and send us death threats. Finally two band birthdays coming up. Big Keith's birthday is Jan 31st and Krum's follows on Feb 5th. Make sure take any appropriate birthday action necessary for these two. ;)
Big news of YMike
DFiVE9 would like to extend a huge congratulations to former bass player YMike. He and his long time girlfriend Jenna finally tied the knot this month. Good luck to both YM and Jenna!
Work has begun in earnest on the new DF9 album. Besides polishing up several recent unrecorded songs, we have several brand new songs that we are getting ready. This album will be different than any we have done before. Stay tuned for more...
The song "Big Brother" was recently chosen to start off Hollywood Video's new GameCrazy sampler CD. The execs first choice was "Blind" from Korn. After 20 secs of "Big Brother" they changed their minds. (I don't think I would. Blind f--in rocks!)
DFiVE9 playing with Drowning Pool and HedPe
On Fri, Dec 3rd, DF9 will be playing with Drowning Pool and HedPe at Sabala's Mt Tabor in Portland. There are not many opportunities to see national bands like this in a intimate club. Make sure to get your tickets now!
