bottomless pit third record hype!
« on: 17 Dec 2009, 02:33 »

http://bottomlesspit.us/dates.php

yea so. i'm the kind of guy that really likes a band, but I never get obsessed over one that I check for updates every day and download every demo/bootleg/whatever. anyone named tommydski have an extra info maybe?

"The band will be working on their new record this winter"

New LP is all but done. Finished in January for sure. Not sure what's going to be on it but I'm pretty certain there's a new version of the song 'Winterwind' which was up on the myspace a while ago. Unfortunately we won't see the record until the middle of 2010. I wonder if Blood Under The Bridge is going to be the title? Sounds quite appropriate. Reports from the studio suggest they were really happy with what's been recorded thus far so I'm very excited. I assume people knew about the Congress EP they released last year. That absolutely destroyed me. Tim's two songs are amongst my favourite he has ever done. Incredible work.

In other related news there will probably be a new EP by the rock band .22, which is the other band of Bottomless Pit bassist Brian Orchard. There's also a massive odds and sods compilation in the works which will hopefully see the light soon. If you like Bottomless Pit but haven't heard .22, now's a good time to catch up. All three of their records are on iTunes. In particular, the second album The Worker is one of my all time favourite albums. The last one The Patriots is no slouch either. I actually talked to Tim about the possibility of Brian writing songs for Bottomless Pit, maybe the new record will have a surprise for us. He's a terrific songwriter and has this really unique voice which I never get tired of hearing.

Alternately, there's always Silkworm. I heartily recommend all of their records if you don't have them. They didn't make a bad one and they all seem to get better as I get older.

Oh, this is good news. Bottomless Pit is a band that I listen to in fits, it seems. When Hammer of the Gods came out it made everything else irrelevant to me for about a month.

Blood Under the Bridge is definitely the title of the new record.

I thought the art on the first record was quite shoddy.

That's an evocative title anyhow. Hammer of the Gods seemed in many ways to be about coming to terms with a sheer bloody-minded randomness of fate. The new title possibly suggests that it will deal with moving on from that, exploring what comes next.

I mean I guess the actual quality of the photos and what have you weren't of the best quality, especially at 12" size but the concept and layout was excellent.

Hammer of the Gods seemed in many ways to be about how rockin' Led Zeppelin III is

Conversely, the whole package of the Congress EP was amazing.



It was also my absolute favourite record of 2008. 'Red Pen' and 'Pitch' are just incredible.

The CD comes with the vinyl as a convenience. I believe Shellac were the first band to do this. It makes a lot of sense considering CDs cost a few cents.

I actually did not think I was going to get a CD, so that was an awesome surprise. I also liked the artwork for that, generally. Just saw the cover for the EP.

I just want this album to drop!

I'm pretty blown away by these songs.

The 'Bar Ice' melody at the end of 'Winterwind' is a beautiful touch.

I can't pick one, they are all great. The solo in '38 Souls' is some classic Andy Cohen wailing though.

Wig's drumming is ace in all of these.

New promo photos by Darren King -



Also, I recently heard from Seth Pomeroy that the SKWM film is nearing completion. Exciting!

If you like Bottomless Pit and can be in or around Chicago in the middle of June, please PM me and ask for details about a very special show.

Contrary to what you might have read about in The Chicago Reader, absolutely nothing is happening on my Birthday (June 12th) in Chicago.

Nothing at all. I hear the whole city it going to close down for the weekend. It's nothing to do with the subject of this thread either.

Well, put it this way. This is where we were standing for this show -



The stage was so small, Tim and Andy played back to back most of the time. During 'Red Pen' they were basically supporting each other during the giant twin guitar crescendo. The sound was perfect despite the absolutely tiny stage. They even played their first and only encore ever. Tim also brought me onstage to sing Happy Birthday to me, which was pretty great and also really embarrassing to say the least. They gave everyone these neat little badges and I snatched a set list too. Most everybody bought a record and shirt. As per usual they were really friendly offstage. Tim talked to us for ages after the show and we drank the cooler of beer he brought in about an hour.

Best birthday ever, basically.

Also, I only cried three times which was pretty impressive. Once at the point in 'Red Pen' where Tim sings the "Silver moon..." part and again at the end of 'Winterwind' as we were screaming the closing refrain from 'Bar Ice' over the top. Naturally if there was a dry eye in the whole room for 'Human Out Of Me' I didn't see it.

Afterwards Steve Albini dedicated the festival to the memory of Michael Dahlquist. It was an incredibly touching moment and highly appropriate.

Man, looking at some of the video evidence of the BBQ kind of makes me embarrassed--headbanging during Bottomless Pit's set? The fuck was I thinking?

Nevertheless it was easily one of the best shows I've ever seen and Tim Midgett is basically the nicest guy, and it was all I could do not to be a total fanboy in front of him, even though I pretty much failed at that. Hopefully I get to see them in the near future and not be as blubbering as I was that night.

I took a walk this morning and listened to Congress and Hammer of the Gods in succession; fuck, the music this band makes is absolutely G.D. brilliant.

This is hecka bittersweet, I don't wanna wait a month. Obviously any of you dudes who know what is happening in my life this week know why I can't buy the LPs, as much as I'd like to. Will everyone here hate me if I download it illegally and pay later? Should I just send them some money via PayPal?
