Tropic Of Cancer is making a new CD... Yes we can...YAY!!!
It is so sad...when the night is over and you realize that we have played our last song and Colin is packing up his drums to leave...But you can keep the music coming...by helping us to complete and release our new CD - It only took 10 years to get it started and this will ensure it doesn't take another 10 to get it done. We are older, wiser and better looking now, and the sound...well hopefully you've heard us playing out sometime this summer, is still the same, awesome new world lounge sound, but different. We want to record the music for posterity and make it possible for all of you (us included) to listen whilst in the comfort of your home or whatever is your pleasure.
We are in the process of recording now, with local legend John Citrone, and the plan is to release a new CD of some old favorites (retuned with a new vibe.....literally) and some new classics. We envision the final product to have 8-10 tracks and be a mix of the old sound and some new flavors, AND we already have 5 tracks in the can. The goal is to have the CD completed and ready for release by the end of October. We will finally have merch for the merch girl!
Your help will ensure we can finish the project by funding the costs of finalizing the recording, the editing and mastering, the creation of the artwork and the replication of all of those CDs!
Thank you for all of your support and for helping us to finish our album!
