IVx17 Self-Destruct Code

I've finished writing a few new songs - but the first one that will be finished is called: IVx17 Self-Destruct Code. Its about aliens and the end of the world and possibly a techno-organic virus. I'm told that it is plenty complicated like I would hope for. I'm playing and recording on upgraded equipment and software. I am positive that you will hear the difference. I have a semi-rough mix done. Its very close to being arranged the way that I want it to be. Its catchy. The bass hits. It tells an interesting story. Its also something that everyone can relate to. There will be a new T-shirt to go along with this song's release.

I can also confirm that the album that it will be on is titled: Mutants, Humans and Robotrons. I'm not sure how many total tracks there will be but I'd guess between 6 and 10. I'm hoping to release a track every 2 months or so. This is the artwork (close to final) that will appear on the front of the T-Shirt.

What does "I'm Back" even mean?

I know that some people don't use Facebook and that is where I post most of my news and happenings. In the years since my last release I've gotten married, had 2 kids and earned a Master's Degree. Now that school is done I've been working on new material. I have 7 songs that are mostly written. Most of them only need a little bit of recording and then some mixing to be finished. I'm not 100% sure how I'll release them but I would expect to hear at least 1 of the tracks by the end of January. A long time ago one of my co-workers and I used to joke that all rappers feel the need to announce that they are "back" on each album . . . I don't think I've mentioned it in any of my songs. . . but it's still worth joking about considering the roads I've taken between releases. Its been a challenge to stay focused and continue writing and creating. I might beat Tool though - at least there is that.
