Y&T Hoping To Release New CD On June 1st
February 2, 2010
Y&T frontman Dave Meniketti has revealed that the band are aiming to release their new studio CD on June 1st via a forum post at www.meniketti.com.
Meniketti states, “Just thought I’d mention for those that are wondering what the hell we are doing. Well, we’re holed up in my studio every day, watching porn and drinking! Well, maybe a little bit of that – but mostly we’re working the song ideas and tonight we’re really noticing the CD is finally taking form.
We’ve written a ton of ideas and some are in various forms of completion, but tonight we sat down and made note of all the songs we feel have a serious chance of making the grade and it turned out to be around 15 tunes (I know I mentioned 18 a few days ago on my Facebook page, but this is the absolute latest). I already dropped a few of my ideas that I thought weren’t up to the grade, and we eliminated some from the list for the present that are in too much of an incomplete form.
One thing that is for certain about the tracks we have currently – it’s got attitude! Of course it’s still early, but I think there will be no confusion about our direction with this CD. Straight ahead honest Y&T rock.
Still lots of work ahead to put all the final touches on the songs we have, plus a few more need to be written, but we’re almost there now as far as the vision and the main part of the writing is concerned.
Other than these 3 shows next weekend, we’ll be back in the studio every day until this CD is finished and released June 1 – if we don’t screw up and miss the deadline.”
