    also, new single Locomotive is on digital services, and is the lead single for upcoming album But For The Sun. Not sure how Brian's diagnosis will affect upcoming touring and the release of the record. They have some dates lined up this summer, and they are already talking like the end is near for Brian. 
    It sucks for sure. As for the touring, probably as a trio since they were doing that over the past year anyways.
    they were? I didn't realize they did any dates since the ILMO anniversary tour. 

    A few one offs and festival shows. They mentioned that Brian would not be there due to illness but didn't go any further than that.
    oh, so that's why they were saying people were asking questions. i was like 'how does a normal fan know anything like that?'

    I didn't realize they were still popular enough in the US for that extensive a tour.

    I don't think the number of dates is an issue, but I was surprised at the venue they are playing in Tempe. It maxes out at 2,500. That seems a bit ambitious to me. But hey, what do I know. Hopefully they sell a bunch of tickets and tons of people get to see this amazing band. Looking forward to the show regardless of how many people are there.

    Do we know if Brian was part of this new album when recording?

  • HughFreakingDillonHughFreakingDillon WinnipegPosts: 18,355
    hard to know. the press release i read seemed to indicate that recording of the record was completed prior to him becoming sick, or something of the like.  
  • RoeDawg13RoeDawg13 Posts: 130
    It sounds like Ian recorded all the guitar parts on this album as well as the last one. For Grace Street he said in an interview that recording was just him with Dave (bass) and Chuck (drums) and that was an economic and timing decision but that Brian (and Paulo at the time) would add their own flavors to the songs live.

    what's wrong with the quoting function again? fuck this website. 

    anyway, i find it really odd that they were the only two remaining original bw members and brian didn't contribute in the studio. how odd. 
  • RoeDawg13RoeDawg13 Posts: 130
    There may have been some collaboration. It's so easy to send licks and riffs back and forth to each other these days and I wouldn't be surprised by that. Who knows? Nobody that's said anything anyway. I'm curious to go through the Grace Street book and see what it has in there

    Same thing as Big Sugar. Gordie had Garry Lowe in the band for bass, and a great bass player at that, but yet Gordie almost always laid down the bass on the studio tracks himself. Never understood that.

    VIP packages went on sale this morning for the upcoming tour, and it's easily one of the most affordable artist VIPs I've seen. Says via their website it's $69.99 CAD, which roughly converts to $53 USD. And it includes the vinyl (which I was going to buy anyways), tote, soundcheck experience, and meet & greet. Heck of a deal as far as I'm concerned.

    the last vip for ILMO tour it was $100 or more (can't recall) without ticket, and didn't include a tote bag. lol. the vinyl was signed, but you can easily get this one signed at the meet and greet. 

    it is pretty cheap, but just to caution, my vip experience was a bit of a disappointment. two songs they wouldn't be playing at that night's show, but the meet and greet portion was a 10 second picture with the band. no time for questions or anything of the like. all depends on your expectations.

    Ian would be a perfect to do a one-off in Cornell's shoes if they ever got into the hall of fame. 
    Been listening to the new singles, yeah man, Ian definitely has a CC sound. I was always into Thornley first till I ventured into Big Wreck. I think he would be great for something if they did anything. Did he sing anything at the tribute?

    no. i think that would have been seen as imitating. like if nirvana had invited daniel johns (silverchair) to the hall of fame.

    Yeah, I'm not getting my hopes up too high or anything. It'll be cool for the experience of whatever it is, and will be nice to shake Ian's hand and thank him for the music I dig so much.
