Brad Skistimas of Five Times August is teaming with kickstarter.com to raise $20,000 in 31 Days (July 16th – August 16th) in an attempt to raise money fund the release of his next album. Support from his fans will enable the independent Dallas singer songwriter to release the next Five Times August album ‘Life As A Song’ with enough financial backing to properly promote the CD. Brad’s message about the effort has since been removed.
Five Times August’s Brad Skistimas checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@fivetimesaugust) on Thursday (June 18), talking about working on a new album. The Dallas, Texas pop singer writes:
Right now Kelly and I are back home in Dallas getting everything in line for the release of Five Times August’s next album “Life As A Song.” For those of you that don’t know, ‘Life’ will be sort of a “best of” album. I chose what I think are my best songs and what I think are the fan favorites, re-recorded them and will put them out as one collection later this year. The album is finished and ready to go, but we still need to do the album cover photo shoot and film the first music video before we move forward with a release date.
It was hard choosing which songs to put on this album, I hope everyone is happy with the song selection. I am positive it will be an entirely new listening experience compared to the old versions of the songs, THAT I can promise. So far the few people that have heard the album all feel that even though a lot of the songs have been released before they sound new, refined, and feel like I’m moving forward as an artist, which is what I hoped to accomplish, so that’s good! A lot of thought, care, and meaning went into this album, I can’t wait for you to hear it!
Five Times August’s Brad Skistimas checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@fivetimesaugust) on Sunday (March 1). The Dallas, Texas singer songwriter tells readers:
I’ve been meaning to write a blog update for a while but things have been crazy between a few tour dates, recording, band auditions, and moving to Nashville. We made it out here February 9th for a week to hold band auditions and go to a conference. We didn’t have too much with us so we were basically sleeping on the floor the entire first week… not the best sleep I ever had, I’ll be honest.
After that we had to drive back to Texas to finish work on the next album. I was in Austin for seven days working with producer/mixer Andy Zulla on the tracks. If that name sounds familiar to some of you it’s because he mixed the last album “Brighter Side.” I really wanted to work with him again on polishing up some of my best work, so we chose 12 songs from my back catalog and got to work. Essentially the next album will be a sort of “best of” collection, but it will be all brand new versions of the songs.
