Where is DANGER DANGER Already?

I was sorting through some old emails last night and I happened upon a couple from Ted Poley. He and I conversed via email a few times when it was first announced he was back in Danger Danger. THAT WAS ALMOST 5 YEARS AGO!!!

 

Anyone have any REAL insight on what's going on and when we can (if ever) expect a new album from these guys? 2009 marks the band's 20th. anniversary... it only seems fitting something should get done THIS calendar year, no?

I've read on Melodicrock.com that they are hard at work and do expect to release some new stuff this year. Like you, I'm getting a little anxious to hear anything form them.

Yeah, I've heard the same too. That it should be out this year. I think I heard it was meant to be early this year too? I thought I'd heard somewhere it was almost completely done and they were just waiting for, was it Ted's vocals? I forget. I think there was one thing to be recorded and it was all done.

 

Dying to hear this one...

In that case, we should expect to see it spring 2010.

I bet it kicks ass!

 

I expect it to be one of the top albums of the year. :tumbsup:

I don't expect much. I just expect it to f*cking crucify every single CD from 2009 and possibly the last decade.

 

Seriously, I'm expecting the best album of 2009... not one of them. :)

I would love to get my hopes up, but I wouldnt wanna be let down hard.

I find it always best to have low expectations, then anything even slightly good, will seem a lot better.

Expect a lot, and something that is only good rather than awesome, will not get its dues, as you will then be disapointed with it!

I just hope they stick to the formula and don't try to sound like the 10,000 other "modern" bands releasing "music" now-a-days.

 

I'm in need of some big hooks, tons of backing vocals, lots of whammy and guitars that are tuned UP rather than tuned down. I want sunshine and fun, not rain and dispair.

 

God I hope this one doesn't disappoint... I'm banking on Danger Danger to renew my faith!

I'm actually a little leery of Poley's return to the D2 fold. He hasn't done much that has impressed me since he left the band and I'm afraid he'll bring that decent-but-formulaic-and-uninspiring style to D2, who were knocking it out of the park when Laine was fronting them. That said, I am hopeful the reunion will bring out the best and we are given another melodic hard rock classic. The potential is there, but I'll keep my hopes reasonable until I hear reason to do otherwise.

I agree....not a huge Poley fan post D2 other than Bone Machine but I think it's due to lack of background vocals & production of cd's which should be no problem for D2. Lets hope...

I'm picking up what you guys are putting down. Although I LOVE his two solo albums, the production was clearly lacking, as it was on the Melodica CDs as well as obviously the Poley/Pichler disc. But even though Pleasure Dome was one of the weaker project post-D2 I actually thought he sounded really good with a great production behind him. And same with the Rivera project. Whilst it was very good, it was not amazing song-wise, but the beefier production suited him.

 

So, as I am 100% sure that the production job will not be an issue, and Bruno Ravel/Steve Brown are one of the most reliable song-writing pairs in the genre, I can only assume this is going to kick ass. :)

 

I hope. ;)

As much as I like the debut IMO Screw It was better and Cockroach is right there as well. :tumbsup:

All three albums are above 90% imo, but here's my thoughts:

1. Cockroach

2. Screw It

3. s/t

    • When it comes down to it, it is the love that matters. I feel the love of Christ in my life. I feel the certainty that He loves me. An atheist says that does not exist, it's imaginary. You even deny love to even be a thing, it's a chemical, it has no meaning. You walk outside, you see trees, you hear birdsong, and it means nothing. I see beauty everywhere I go, the beauty of Christ and His creation. I know beauty can be corrupted. I know evil exists. I know there is death. That is free will, baby. A person chooses to do what they do. Do I care if you believe what I know to be true to my core of being? No, not really. It's like someone saying to me "Def Leppard's Pyromania sucks". I know the music moves me and I love it. With Christ in my life it is that feeling x 1000. If it angers you that I have this love, as it seems to for some here, I can only apologise. It would be like not breathing to deny it. If that hurts your feelings cause once upon a time some church or Christian hurt you, I can just say, don't blame God for the followers. Evil appears in every element. Humans are fallible. Humans do bad shit. I am only responsible for my own soul. Do I want God to come down and intervene in every evil? Hell no. I love that we are free to choose. Forcing someone to love you is not love. Also, how about people be responsible for what they choose to do rather than blame God? You say there is nothing but death and darkness at the end. I know this is just a plane of existence and death has lost its sting. Again, I stress, I don't care if you agree or not. I'm not here to judge you. You are free to choose. I just ask for the same courtesy that you accept I don't share your views and that you can move past your hatred for that choice (not all on this site, just some).
    • Probably the wisest thing said on this thread.  Realistically, we're all in this position.

    • From MelodicRock Classics: MRC008 – HEADWAY (Featuring Steve McClintock) – Headway                                     1CD Limited Edition Unreleased pomp-AOR / melodic rock album from 1980 featuring vocalist and guitarist Steven McClintock. Includes original master tracks plus a couple of live bonus tracks recorded in 1981.    
    • To be honest, it doesn't really concern me if he did or didn't. I put it out there are a kind of olive branch (ie: not everything is completely imaginary and made up) Not many lives were well documented 2000 years ago. Likelihood is that he existed, and had some small amount of notoriety. Was killed and became a Randy Rhodes or Jeff Buckley. A lot more famous after death than when alive. The bibles changed over the years, his exploits became more impressive and eventually  became a demi god. Ironically I love easter and Jesus stories. They make great stories
    • That's really not proven. Opinions split. On the balance of it there is a fair chance he existed but it cannot be proven definitively he did.  His life isn't well documented outside of the bible.  It's long but this is a good video on the topic.     
    • I thank that may be partially due to his delivery style. He'll read part of a quote/sentence/article, make a pithy remark, lather rinse repeat. So it takes him a while to get through things and for the full point to come across. I think if he cut down his breaks by 50% it would be much more digestable. Still, as Lefties go, he's seemingly got more brain power and common sense than many...      
    • New song 'Irreversible'. From Frontiers: 'Irreversible' is a new single from Norway's Big City. The track is from the recording sessions for their most recent studio album, "Testify X", which is out now. Fans of bands such as Firewind, Queensryche, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall, Europe, Fair Warning, and the like should look forward to being introduced to this exciting band.
