"The cds are going to be completely inspired by the color- so it could be from what the color feels like, to the colors place in musical and world history, to the metaphysical importance of the color, to the color's frequency dictating the actual tones and keys used for the music.
Our main focus will remain supporting Act II, and the Act music in general, but these records will have as much care and detail as any full length."
Alright, this explains a little more. Pretty interesting endeavor. I'll be interested to see how it goes. They definatey have the talent to pull something like this off.
Everyone so quick to whine, bitch, and talk shit. "Omgz Thrice is lyke the only band that can do teh concept albumzzz!!!1" Let it go...Casey and crew are just as creative as Dustin's gang, so I am sure this is going to be more than solid. Jesus.
it's not that people are doubting his skills or ambitions, it is just that nine 30-60 minute releases is more than most bands release in their careers nowadays. not to mention if they are only sold at shows it would probably either a) cost a shitload to fund the recording these since the only way to acquire such material is through live shows or b) production and quality will be shit.
if i was into this band id be excited and also terrified because let's face it, almost any band, especially one based upon a concept becomes tired and boring to the listener's ears after a handful of releases.
nonetheless, cheers to casey and the rest of his bandmates for having such grand plans.
