I'm not dead... not quite yet.

 

Well!  It's been over a year since I've updated this site.  I've completely and utterly missed the deadline I set for releasing 'Taciturn Verses'.  I got halfway through completing that album and things took a turn for the worse.  Life is busy and life is chaos, but that should come as no surprise to anyone who also lives one.  Things are changing, things are happening.  Of all the tasks I wish to complete and projects I want to take part in, this is still one.  So if you're into that kind of thing... you'll get it eventually.  I make no promises, I set no expectations other than my own sense of completion.  More to come.

 

Living Dream

 

Feel free to check out this new song "Living Dream" from the upcoming album "Taciturn Verses".  It's about the illusions we all create for our own lives -- be they for the better or the worse.  Mine tend to lean more towards the worse...


Work on the new album is progressing, but being delayed by crippling and persistent depression.  I still plan to meet my nebulous release date of "late March", so watch out for that.

 

Band of the month!

 

Skellytone was chosen to be band of the month on Radio Airplay.  Check it out!

Also, I hope to upload a new track this Friday, so watch out for that.

 

A Careful Eyeful

 

Just posted a new track from the as-of-yet-unnamed 2013 album.  Check it out on soundcloud:

Recording is going well on the new album (about 6 tracks complete so far), while video making has taken a back seat, but worry not, that video will get made eventually... eventually I say!

 

Further Shenanigans

 

Just recently I hit 350 fans on Jango Internet Radio... Many thanks to all of them!

In futher news, as it turns out, making a video is more difficult than I had anticipated.  It's still in the works, but I've also been quite busy creating new music for an album to be released (hopefully) sometime in 2013.  

In the meanwhile, whilst I finish work on the video, here is a track for you all to listen to.  I've decided to go with soundcloud for the purpose of posting demos.  It's easier than juggling files on here. 

The song is titled "Tellin' You" and it's of an odd origin.  It's a story in a song, set in Victorian era.  As you can hear in the beginning of the track, the inspiration for the song was a recording of a friend's son -- but don't let that fool you.  This song is as typically dark as you might expect from Skellytone.  Enjoy.

 

New single coming!

 

Recording is nearly finished on the new single called, "Pancakes".  This song will be released simultaneously with a video.  Work on the video will be starting soon, so be sure to check back for any updates.  Usually, everything I do musically I do completely by myself.  All the writing, performing, recording, mixing, mastering, web updates, graphics (minus some help from awesome friends for album covers), photography, social media -- basically I strive for all D.I.Y.  This video, however, may be a different story.  I have the camera and tripod and all the equipment to do the filming myself, as well as the software for editing and creating the video -- but -- I have never made a video before, so we shall see how it goes.  Check back here for updates soon!

Here is an excerpt of the rough unfinished mix of the new song.  Hope you enjoy.

A stirring is occurring...

 

Soon, I will begin filming a video for an as-of-yet un-named new single, to be simultaneously released.  Expect to see it at the very latest, some time January 2013.  Also coming soon, some pictures.  Excite!
