One of the tracks on our upcoming album is built around the sound this frog makes. I thought it was a pretty unique instrument, but turns out it’s just a form of guiro. Still, it’s not a run-of-the-mill instrument to base a song upon. We’re still working on the new album but the pieces are beginning to fall into place. It’s going to be a classic, ‘listen with headphones in a darkened room’ album. If ‘the album’ is indeed in its dying throes, as reported in the news this week, then ‘The Only Way Out is Through’ is going to be delivered kicking and screaming. In any case, The Eleventh Hour Initiative is currently committed to the album as a means to deliver music. When you hear the new one you’ll understand why the music we’re making needs to be made the way we’re making it. Until then, try and imagine some music alongside the sound of the frog’s back being stroked and his head being stoved in.
Well, it has been a fair while since we’ve published any ‘News’ on our site. We are currently beavering away on the second TEHI album. We have already spilled the beans on the name “The Only Way Out is Through“, but we are remaining tight-lipped on the content! I just wanted to say that, so far, we are really pleased with the progress we are making. The music is sounding sublime, and Bill is excelling himself with the lyrics. While it is a cliche to say things are a journey (“He’s been on a journey!” – when he’s just spent a few days in the Big Brother house, or sold a few milkshakes on the Apprentice) … this album will be a journey. Believe me. Believe us.
As I always type when I end these things – YOU’VE GOT TO CHECK OUT OUR PREVIOUS RELEASES, PRIMARILY THE SUPERB DEBUT ALBUM “ESCAPISM“. /ends shouting.
We’re excited to have our music featured in a promo for the great Noyes Museum in Oceanside, NJ
Thanks to all TEHI fans wherever you may be! Here’s to 2013!!! (It’s gonna be a good year!)
