For this month’s ChicagoVerseUniteD cover story, every day in January will preview 2012 plans for a Chicago talent or tastemaker. Today: Blah Blah Blah!
2011 was a big year for Blah Blah Blah, with the group releasing their Thank You, Thank You EP, touring the country, and even performing on Chic-a-Go-Go. Now, the indie rockers are looking towards their first full length effort, as Blah Blah Blah’s Solomon David and Phill Ferguson inform CVU.
“The new music is more aggressive and more melodic than previous releases,” Ferguson reveals of the band’s new material. “It will be thought-intriguing, upbeat, and inspiring,”
“My prediction is that everyone who hears the album, in it’s entirety, will find one of their new favorite songs in life.” David adds.
The group is hoping for an early summer release for the album, which the band is “playing around with” calling Guns In The Greenroom. Before then, the band is also looking towards new video releases. The group is also preparing for two KCRW-sponsored events in LA next month, including a pre-brunch show before The GRAMMYs on February 11th. Also on the 11th is an evening performance on the rooftop of The Roxy. (Show info fixed from earlier post.)
“This year we’re really looking forward to working with the most talented producers and engineers to produce a new yet familiar sound,” David confirms.
Find the group’s new video for “Soon As I Get Home Tonight,” featuring a cameo from The Cool Kids‘ Chuck Inglish below, followed by the treatment for “A Game We Play,” both off Thank You, Thank You. Those videos follow David’s CVU podcast interview from 2011, and are followed by the group’s Live At The Alley appearance alongside Urbanites.
