Looks like Who cover bands aren’t the only thing Gary Cherone has going on after all. Extreme is putting the finishing touches on a new album, with Nuno Bettencourt at the mixing board possibly even as I type! It will be the band’s first album since 1995′s Waiting For The Punchline, so I’m hoping they’ll name the album The Punchline if they don’t decide to go back to the whole roman numeral thing (V Alive, maybe?).
EXTREME FANS HAVE SPOKEN! And you are right! I apologize to you. Extreme have the most loyal and patient fans on the planet and you deserve an update every once in a while from the band. Is that too much to ask? OK enough with the groveling.
The record is finished except for one lead vocal and a few backgrounds. Nuno is working overtime finishing up the mixes, and believe the hype! These are the best performances of the band… ever! You’re gonna hear everything you expect from Extreme, and everything you don’t!
The release of the record will ultimately depend on the label, and what’s best for the band. We’re working on an American run for mid/late summer. Europe, Japan, and the rest of the world to follow!
Until the next time, yeah I know, what was so hard about that?
Your humble and lovable shoe shine boy,
That “shoe shine boy” line actually makes me feel a little bad for mocking Whiz Kid. All he wants to do is entertain the good people! Who am I to make fun?
