New Stryper Album

From stryper.com

Hey Everyone, Just as promised, I wanted to outline some more details regarding the new Stryper record. We grew up listening to many different styles of music and there is a list of bands that influenced us throughout our musical education. Bands like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Scorpions, Van Halen, UFO, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Kansas and many others, helped to shape our sound and make us who we are today, musically speaking.

We grew up on the streets of LA playing every club in town from Gazzari’s to The Whisky to The Troubadour to you name it. We played covers from all the bands mentioned above and we shaped our own sound from listening and performing songs from these classic bands.

We wanted to step outside the box and record a record that shows you, the fans, where we come from – our historical, musical roots so to speak. It’s a side to Stryper that no one has really seen or heard before, or at least quite like this. We performed “On Fire” by Van Halen on a few tours and we also performed “Breaking The Law” by Priest on this last tour. The response was far beyond our expectations each time we performed these songs. People seemed genuinely surprised to hear Stryper cover these songs and even more surprised to hear Stryper perform these songs relatively well. This will be an opportunity for Robert, Oz, Tim and myself to loosen up and have some fun.

For those of you who may think that we’re walking away from our faith – your wrong. We’ve never been more serious about our faith at any point in our lives. It is however important to enjoy what you do and lighten up from time to time. That’s what we plan to do. This will be a fun record to make and we hope that this comes through, as well as the chance to showcase the abilities that we’ve been blessed with. More details to come and a specific song list and sequence to follow.

We’re looking forward to getting back into the studio and more important, to seeing all of you on the road again this year!

Be well, be blessed and let the games begin,
Michael

The cover album will be called The Covering.

Disciple Announces New Album

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , on April 30, 2010 by crow237

Disciple had an interview with RadioU and this is how it went.

Jared: “So, how have you guys been? It’s been forever since Disciple has been hanging around. What’s been going on?”

Andrew: “Oh my gosh, well, we just spent December, January and February recording our new CD and we’re still not done. We have two more songs to record. So, as soon as we get home in May, we’re going to get to recording those two and hopefully have a CD out by the end of July. This album is completely different, we’re all really excited about the songs and we’re just like ‘I don’t care, let’s play ’em!’ So we’ll teach the crowd a few words to the new songs and we just roll with it.”

Steve Carell Done With The Office

From IGN.com

In a recent BBC Radio interview with Steve Carell and Tina Fey about their new movie Date Night, the conversation briefly turned to NBC’s The Office, which has been renewed for Season 7, beginning this fall. Carell was asked, “How long will you stay with The Office for? How many more series [that’s British speak for “seasons”]? How long does your contract run?”

“Contract through next season,” Carell answered. Asked if he could see himself signing a new contract to stay on beyond that, Carell replied, “I don’t think so. That will probably be my last year.”

NBC has yet to comment on this statement, as Carell’s words now raise the question: If Carell leaves the show, will The Office end? Or would the network attempt to continue the series without its main character?
