I really hope that they are goind to release the album in May... but there's no chance... so it's my supposition:
- April - May --> the record sessions will end... the album is recorded
- May - June --> Chester is working on DBS
- July - August --> A few concerts or maybe a small tour...
- September --> The album is released...
- November --> A big tour
I want it in May, but they won't be ready after such a little time... so I thing this programme is the most realistic... and it's nice, too, except of the release date of the album...
I agree somewhat, but I defianntly agree that Chester's window to get DBS started up WILL be next Spring/Summer.
I think they're still writing and still tracking rough vocals and instruments right now. I think they definantly have a "concept" for what they want to do and topics they want to talk about RIGHT NOW. They might even be a few songs in already.
I see LP finishing up the album around March-Aprilish. Then they would mix the album in May-June. Chester would probably have a 1-2 month window to market/play a few shows and get DBS up at that point, as the album's getting mixed. Then that summer/fall LP would go on an international press tour while simulatenously playing some shows in those cities, get a single on the radio, and prep for the album's release that late summer/fall.. I see a stadium tour early 2010, few months off, then proj rev summer 2010.
No matter what I think LP is going to start cooking up albums a lot faster here on out. Judging by Mike's posts on his blog about getting material out there, profiting, etc it sounds like being independant and releasing albums digitally is the way to go, so I can see LP releasing albums to get out of that contract in the next 2-3 years. I see a Greatest hits album on the horizon, 1-2 studio albums, and one more BS album like R2R ( not to say it was BS but it was quick to cook up and satisifies an ALBUM for warner).
