Of course no one reads this, but I still wanted to put a new post up. Thanks to everyone on myspace for supporting the new song. The rest of the album will hopefully continue to dazzle you. It will take quite awhile for the album to really begin to form, but we're all really excited about it. We're getting really good response about the new stuff, so we will get it done as fast as we can. I know we can't wait until it's all done and we can hopefully plan a real tour. That would be fun...I'm going to work on that now. Good night all.

Check out "April in the Fall" - now uploaded to our Myspace.
It features our new orchestral plug-in we just got; that's why the orchestra and piano sound so lush. There's a PVC pipe instrument in one part, courtesy of Crimson Roots. Also, that's a fretless guitar in the odd-time section. We've really exploited the power of the 7-string on this one, as well. It's not the final version, since it's not mastered, but it's as close to the real thing as we're going to get for now.

Being in a band takes a lot out of a person. There is much more to it than just the music. What I'm getting at is that we, unfortunately, had to part ways with our bassist, Kirk Schwenkler. Since we didn't want it to be a personal issue, we took the easy way out and e-mailed him. I'm glad he took it well, since I (and the other guys) value Kirk as a friend. We just have been getting vibes from him that Suspyre couldn't be his life, since he is interested and talented at many other things, and decisions need to be made. He believes "I can't make this my main focus in life, and if that is what you guys need, then you do in fact need a new bass player.", which pretty much summarizes it. So, now we have to look for a new bassist, which isn't a huge deal right now since we're concentrating more on recording rather than shows.

Anyway - a new song will be up VERY soon. Maybe even tomorrow. Wow.

It's an interesting time around the studio right now. The songs are coming along slowly, mostly because we are so picky about the way it comes out. However, that's a good thing because all of you should be very pleased when it is finished...I know the band is excited with the early stages and the way it's sounding.

The first single should be out and released soon. It's going to be quite a while before the album is done, but we wanted a new song to give to the prog power compilation. We respect that festival too much not to try and get something new out for them, for ourselves, and of course for our fans. We will update you when something new happens. Peace...
