BUMBLEFOOT TO RELEASE TITLE TRACK TO NEW CD âABNORMALâ FREE FOR DOWNLOAD
Ron Thal aka Bumblefoot is treating his fans new and old to a bit of free music before his new album âAbnormalâ is released to the public for sale, by offering the title track free for download. As with his previous albums Thal will be self-releasing âAbnormalâ online. âI never went along with the way the music industry did things, and have always been rebelliously against it, spouting off how the system doesn’t work, and how bands should be DIY and make it just about the music and the fans. 10 years ago I was giving away songs on Napster and releasing my own albums, selling them online. 10 years later, I still do it and still stand by it – fuck the business, connect directly with the fans.â The recording and creative process has also been a very fresh experience, as Thal has been making videos of the recording process and posting them online, running contests to include backing singers to perform on the album, and giving progress reports on his forums to keep everyone there with him while the album was coming together. âIt’s been great being able to share the experience as it happens. It’ll be another month before the CD is manufactured – until then, I wanna give away a little taste. Download it, share it, delete it, it’s yours to do as you wish.â âAbnormalâ, the follow-up to Thalâs previous offering âNormalâ, is a hard rock album flavored with a light-hearted mix of different styles and genres, with catchy hooks and blistering guitar work. When asked about the new project, Thal had the following to say: âIt was October last year, I was about to fly into a fucking rage, went to go crash out at the studio, and all these songs just started flying out of my head. Spent the next few months recording drums, bass, guitars, vocals, opera singers and tuba players. Some people heard it and said it reminds them of the Sex Pistols with a little Beatles/Queen vibe to it. Didn’t have a plan, just did what I felt, and in the end this is what I got.â With recording completed and finishing touches being added to the tracks and art work, âAbnormalâ will be ready for release In early June, with the free track available for download Monday May 19th, 2008. See www.bumblefoot.com for more information. Along with CDâs being available for purchase, the tracks will be available for download on iTunes, and a very special limited edition Fan Pack will be available for diehard fans that want something a bit different in a limited quantity. The CD will be available at www.cdbaby.com , www.amazon.com as well as Bumblefootâs own artist-run partner Bald Freak Music. www.baldfreak.com ABOUT BUMBLEFOOT Ron Thal is from NYC and is a member of Guns N‘ Roses, as well as a songwriter, producer, music Professor at SUNY Purchase College, and volunteer with the MS Research Foundation.
