I’ve finished the writing, arranging and the pre production work of all the songs of my next upcoming solo album that will be called "The Awakening". The next thing is to start to assemble and involve all the different drummers, it looks like there might be quite a few, and decide who will play on which song/songs and then start recording the drums.
As for the new live project where we'll do our interpretations of songs from the two first Iron Maiden albums as a 3-piece power trio called Järntrean (Fe3), we’ll start the final round of rehearsals in a month and then it’s all ready to take live on stage. Really exciting.
I also have some other studio works in the plans but due lack of time at the moment I’m not sure when I’ll be able to execute them, but when, and if, they happen, you’ll be the first to know.
I am so thrilled to finally get to play live again, was way too long ago and I really, really miss performing live on stage. Playing live is, aside maybe writing the music, the whole deal for me to be doing this and as much an improviser as I am, live on stage is where I belong, where I really am, doing my thing, there and then.
