I think this new album is going to be beyond incredible, but that won't take away from the previous albums at all. They are each amazing in their own ways and we all have a history with them, so I don't think you have anything to worry about, Christophe. Smile

And yeah, six days and still nothing! I'm going out on a limb and saying today is the day!

I know I love Airplane love the part where he is trying to land the plane and sweat is pouring off him haha.

I suppose you are right Shannon that we all have a history with the albums and can all appreciate them individually. It might be harder for new fans hearing Handwritten as their first Gaslight album to appreciate their previous albums I don't know.

I really hope you are right Shannon. Someone needs to pull their socks up and just RELEASE THE INFORMATION! I am growing weaker every day with lack of news.

Haha, I think some of us (me included) will no longer be able to function by the end of the week if we don't get SOMETHING! geek

Hmm...I hadn't thought about new fans. That will be interesting to see if they end up loving the older albums as well. How can they not?! I would have a hard time calling them true fans if they didn't love all of those amazing songs. I guess I feel kind of protective over the music in a way because it means so much to me. Can you imagine the outrage if a bunch of new people signed up on here and said they don't like anything before Handwritten? Shocked I bet they would be immediately shunned! :p

Yeah I agree I think if they love Handwritten they could not help but fall in love with their previous albums. If they did sign up and slated Gaslight's previous material they would be chased out of this town with pitchforks haha lol!

Based on the most recent Tumblr entry, I wonder if the label might be playing with the dates a little. Maybe a month or two ago they told TGA about a June release, so that's what the guys told interviewers. Then the Bieber album was slated for mid-June and it threw everything out of whack.

Quote :
just waiting to get the OK to start releasing info to you all about the first single and release datesÖitís coming so soon, I promise, we just had to get everything ready so you can get everything in a complete form.

So, maybe they were told one thing, then told another, and they had to change their plans. That's what happens when you go from being the big fish in a small pond (sideonedummy) to being a small fish in a very, very big pond.

I hope it hasn't been pushed back because if Justin Bieber of all people. The horror! affraid

In the other Handwritten thread, a good point was made (the quote below), and it makes sense to me. Until I hear something official that says differently, I have to believe that it's still going to be a June release.

Seeing as in the Island/DefJam/Mercury Newsletter, they link to the Spin article in which it says that the album will be released in June, I think we can be just about positive JUNE IT IS!!!!

Why can't they release Gaslight and that kid I shall not name at the same sort of time? It's not like they are similar and competing against each other.

That's what I was wondering. Do record labels release albums by different artists on the same day? That kid's album is coming out on June 19th (I heard the date when he was on The Voice - ugh, so so stupid!) and my first thought was, "Oh no! Does that mean Gaslight cant release on that day too?"

It's a question of resources. Releasing an album is not simply sending it to radio stations and stores - they have to mount a whole PR campaign. I imagine Bieber requires a lot more people to launch his album, so perhaps several who would be working on the TGA release were diverted.

Labels tend to have surprisingly small staffs, even at the Mercury level, so they would try to avoid releasing too many things at the same time to give only one album the utmost attention.

It's possible that means simply pushing Handwritten back by a week or two to avoid overlap.

Maybe not. I'm not sure how it works. I think Gaslight will be released on June 25/26.

Very interesting. If it was pushed back to be released the week after Bieber's [stupid] record, then it would still be a June release. I am so sick of guessing, I just want to know for sure which day! Even if it's not June (which I still think it is), I just want to know already!

Yeah that is interesting hopefully if it does get pushed back it will only be a week or two. Wonder if they would consider bringing it forward so it came out before brat-who-must-not-be-named's album does?

Oh man, I hope so! But that would only be 6 or 7 weeks away, so that seems unlikely since we haven't heard ANYTHING AT ALL! I really hope that will happen though!

I am the same way at work! WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO US?! Seriously, I'm not some little fangirl who drools over rock stars. Really, I'm not. But this album has become an obsession, probably because I hate not knowing what's going on. What has happened to my life? Shocked Embarassed Razz

Someone should make a documentary entitled 'Handwritten: An Obsession' that tracks members of Dimestore Saints and how they are struggling to cope waiting for this album. It focuses on how it is affecting their everyday lives and slowly turning their lives into a living hell. The documentary could even feature footage of those of us who have sought medical help in order to try and overcome this cruel disease Wink

Laughing Yeah, that could be a bit tough. But, I suppose there are some good documentary film-maker chaps in England, yeah? Smile

...maybe you could even find someone with ties to Gaslight so they could get their professional advice!! Very Happy

Here's a fun project to help stem the tide of anticipation...

I just went back to Sink or Swim for the first time in months. Honestly, I'd forgotten how awesome that album is. Listen to that for a few days. Maybe mix in Senor and the Queen.

Then move on to 59 Sound. Really soak it in, put it on a loop.

Then American Slang. If the first single or the new album isn't out by the time the "cycle" is over, start at the beginning again.

Listen with new ears, as if each one of the old albums is the new album. Listen for chord progressions and tone changes. Try to catch the subtleties. Then sing along at the top of your lungs.

The new one will be out before you know it!

PostSubject: Getting through the agonizing wait...   Mon Jun 25, 2012 9:47 pm

I don't know if there's already something out there like this, but I'm losing my mind waiting for Handwritten. Last night I dreamt it leaked and woke up very disappointed and had a very sad day, haha. So what if we have a thread where we talk about other upcoming albums or things that we've been into lately and try discovering new artists/albums/songs/etc. Like I said, I'm not sure if there's something like this on here already. For me, I've been really into Biffy Clyro lately. I discovered them when they were touring with Alkaline Trio but never checked them out until a little over a month ago. I'm surprised they're not bigger here in the US. I also just downloaded Eddie Vedder's solo records, which I'm digging so far. I also love the new Sigur Růs album, Valtari. Very awesome stuff. Actually, what if instead of making this just about other music, what if we discuss anything that we've been into while waiting for the album. Like...I recently started watching Breaking Bad (so good o_o). So yeah, anything, like music, movies, video games, books, writing, painting, playing music, work..whatever. I thought this might be a good idea, let me know if it isn't! haha.
