Crippled Black Phoenix update

as we reported previously, crippled black phoenix started work on two albums back in 2007. justin greaves posted the following on the band's myspace blog earlier this week:


There is a plan, whether or not we'll stick to it is anyones guess, but for now here's the pitch...

Both albums "The Resurrectionists" and "Night Raider" will be released together in or around December as a limited box set which will also include a vinyl version, a book of sorts and maybe some other limited artwork type stuff....This release will be in advance of the "regular" version which will be out early January. The length of time this album has taken has been a little frustrating but at least there's some light now, this is one reason there has been a few previews posted on the profile player.

The full tracklist for the two albums is as follows (some songs we have been playing live over the last year!)...

Burnt Reynolds
Rise Up And Fight
Crossing The Bar
200 Tons Of Bad Luck
Please Do Not Stay Here
Song For The Loved
A Hymn For A Lost Soul
Human Nature Dictates The Downfall Of Humans

Time Of Ye Life/Born For Nothing/Paranoid Arm Of Narcoliptic Empire
Bat Stack
Along Where The Wind Blows
Onward Ever Downwards
A Lack Of Common Sense
Trust No One
I Am Free, Today I Perished

....proof of actual work being done!

There may well be a video done for the song "Rise Up And Fight" but i'll believe it when i see it!

We also intend to be touring later in the year and early next, the first thing looks like it will be a few UK dates with the great band Manatees. There's some other plans too...maybe i shouldn't say anything just yet...don't want to curse it!

So anyway, just a bit of something if yer interested.....there may be another preview if ye lucky.......go on.....pick a tune, y'never know, i might feel generous.
further details to follow as they emerge.
