For the King's X fans...
KING'S X SIGNS WITH INSIDE OUT MUSIC AMERICA
NEW STUDIO ALBUM SET FOR NORTH AMERICAN RELEASE ON SEPTEMBER 27, 2005
The critically acclaimed, highly influential Texas-based rock trio King's X has signed with Inside Out Music America. The band's recent work has been released by Inside Out except in North America, and signing with IOMA unifies its label worldwide.
The first new King's X album from guitarist/vocalist Ty Tabor, bass guitarist/vocalist Doug Pinnick and drummer/vocalist Jerry Gaskill under the new deal will be released in North America on September 27, 2005. It is currently untitled and will include up to 14 songs; the track listing is being finalized.
"Signing with InsideOut is due to the longstanding relationship we have with the great people at the label like Thomas Waber in Germany and Jim Pitulski here in America," says Tabor. "It's another opportunity where we found ourselves free to make a change. We have signed with a new booking agent too.
"With Inside Out, we have that friendship and we have the same goals. They are also realistic and honest. They don't pull punches. It's a logical match."
Tabor first got to know Waber and Pitulski in recent years via his solo and all-star side projects such as Platypus, The Jelly Jam and Jughead that were released by InsideOut. Gaskill's solo album 'Come Somewhere' was also issued by the label.
The new King's X album was produced by Michael Wagener, who has produced, engineered or mixed work by the likes of Metallica, Alice Cooper, Queen, Ozzy Osbourne, Dokken, Megadeth, Motley Crue, Skid Row, Extreme and many others.
"This was a big change for us after years of self-producing our albums. We wanted to be free to focus on the music itself. Things were often fragmented the past several years. I had to oversee a lot of business things -- such as working with different labels for different territories -- that sometimes didn't allow me to really focus on the music as much as I wanted," Tabor says.
"Michael wasn't pushing us in any one direction. It was just four guys having a good time creating sounds and music. It's a broad-sounding record. It's hard to compare our music from album to album, but vocally this one has elements of early King's X and sonicaly it's similar to our recent ones.
"It feels so fresh to be able to concentrate fully on the music. I honestly believe this new album is our best record in many, many years."
King's X also plans to shoot videos for two singles from the album, their first promotional clips since 1998's 'Tapehead.' They will be directed by Dr. Teeth, who has helmed videos that are all over MTV for artists such as new hip-hop sensation Mike Jones. Tabor loves Dr. Teeth's hip-hop videos -- "The guy is extremely talented," he says -- and they met through mutual friends in Houston.
Tabor explains that the band is refreshed after having taken this year off so far.
"This was our first break after five straight years of torturous work on King's X and side projects. It was absolutely non-stop. Zero time off," he says.
King's X is back with renewed energy and creative fire, and the eclectic nature of the band's work and Inside Out's expertise in quality handmade music makes it a perfect partnership.

me and my Vast opportunities
Hello everybody. I'm new to the Live Journal scene. Blame Eric for getting me started. Anyway, I figured I'd let everyone in on what happened with me and Vast. It's my first entry in my journal but it's really freakin' long, so only read it if you have the time do so.
This looks like a very cool community. See everyone around soon.

Who all likes vintage clothing? I'm thinking of adding a vintage section to my site. A friend who owed me $100 gave me all kinds of cool stuff to sell and I'm sure it'll go cheep. I really don't want to pay for ebay's fees if I'm going to sell it so cheep. Anyone?

tell me if these are wrong,...
your body's empty now
As I hold you
now you're gone I miss you
but I told you
I remember bad times
more than good
there's no coming back
even if we could
I loved you to death
If I can't have you
then no one will
And since I won't
I'll have to kill
my only love, something
i've never felt
now you've gone to heaven
and i'll burn in hell
i loved you to death
and now i'm down below
and what do i see
you didn't go to heaven
you're down in hell with me
and now you're coming back
baby take me please!
i really think i would
if you weren't such a sleaze
i loved you once before
you kept me on a string
i'd rather go without
then take what you would bring!
i loved you to death!
sorry about the lyrics, i couldn't help myself. please tell me if i made a mistake. o.0 Current Mood: creative

Hihi! ^_^ Im newwwww. Hope Im not annoying you guys, Heres some of my poetry, read, or fear me. lol
The sorrow has sung
A torturous tune has begun
Beyond my torso
Lies a heart that can see
the soul and essence
the nature within me
At one with all,
imagination is the key
to tune out of pain
and bring it all back
back to the truth in me
Il take some innocence from you
and wait till the feeling dies
bring it back tomorrow
and feed the truth with lies
The beauty surrounds my head
the beauty in you,
its persistant and lovely
There are so many things to love
Oh so many things to see
So why do you stand there,
resting you face
sitting in that place
the place we were free?
Why so sad,
in the shadow of a dream
the thought you placed within yourself
captivating all youve seen
So are you lost my sweet?
In the song that sorrow brings?
Trapped in the lullaby
the cuts of lemon stings
Running round in circles,
when the path is so clear
never seeing me next to you
So blinded in your fear
Songs are pain,
prying open wounds
niggling in the corners
Changing with my moods
First they were ecstacy
you standing by my side
now they wash you away,
lost forever in the tide
There are so many things to see
Oh so many to enjoy
Why hide your eyes from me?
Singing of a sorrow that you eternally alloy? Current Mood: hopeful
