We’re out on the road again in February with The Heretic Order for a sort-of ‘double headline’ thing which should be a blast.
In the meantime we’ve opened up a forum/message board on the I.C.O.N site, which is cool. I like forums much more than the social media driven thing that seems to dominate everywhere today. We’re planning to put all kinds of stuff that is available only to the people that have signed up (free of course). Off to a good start anyway and we have a good bootleg from the mixing desk of the French show with Operation:Mindcrime; warts and all 🙂
Plus, we’re moving on with writing new track. About half of the next album is written already and plenty of ideas for the second half. The end of 2015 and beginning of 2016 has had been pretty depressing with the mighty Lemster and David Bowie both leaving the building. But it’s time to get back to living and move on. Both of those guys lost a lot of their own inspirational figures – not to mention close personal friends – over the years and never let it dent their drive to make new music. That’s another good example to follow 🙂
My favourite quote from Mister Bowie that’s currently doing the rounds:
“I don’t know here I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.”
What a great philosophy 🙂
