Where is DANGER DANGER Already?

Recommended Posts

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 asked this question on the Melodicrock board recently. Here's Ted's reply on January 24th:

 

COMING SOON.....

and to describe it in a single word-AWESOME.

:)

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...

Nothing they have done can touch the S/T

 

 

I disagree dear...Cochroach & Screw It touched it...several times :)

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

    • I know zero about cricket, unless your speaking of the darts game, that I can bury some ass in, Baseball will be my favorite sport until the day I stop sucking air.
    • Not gonna ruin it with a sneak peek. Was listening to Bia Bang today. Damn, they have some great stuff, want a new album from them. Gonna go and see if they have anything in the works.  
    • haha, yeah, I mixed up Electric Circus with Restless Gypsy. or perhaps I was thinking the LA Guns. Andy Timmons also did a song by that name. I know this as I wrote the lyrics for it.
    • Yep, need a few more listens to the EP though.
    • Van Hagar is my preferred VH. Over here, we really didn't get too much of the earlier stuff. Jump put them on the map, unless you were harcore 'metal' back then. I mean when 1984 came out I was 14 or 15, so I was just moving to hard rock, getting into Kiss and Maiden etc. I mean I Was Made For lovin' You pretty much put Kiss on the map in Australia, and then Shandi solidified them. So VH never toured Australia with Sammy or Dave. Sammy toured solo, and VH toured with Dave in 2013, but we never got to see the real Dave show. In the end, I'm not a huge fan of pre 1982 stuff. There are a few songs... More a fan of early Sammy stuff, post Montrose. The last album they had contained a few songs. Stay Frosty is great.
    • MLB. Don't even get me started on a Cricket vs Baseball/Softball comparison. That's a whole other can of worms.
    • Sorry Terry I was being a smart ass, you kept commenting on how good BTE was live, so I axed you again, truth is, I know your not lying or exaggerating, because I too saw them in 96 with Tonic, Sponge, and Our Lady Peace, BTE were extremely surprising, as they took to the stage and the guitarist opened with a fucking huge solo, I never saw it coming out of that Alpha Gama Ray fraternity looking dude, blew me away, but I gotta say, after that night, I went from having only heard of them, to being a lifelong Sponge fan, they were mind blowing, and their discs do them no justice to their live act.
    • Now I never said that, why you trying to do that bro? LOL, pretty smooth though, Rugby's a brutal and awesome game, I enjoyed the brief time I learned to play it, it's just not an easy sport to stay up on here, unless it's soccer or darts, we don't get a whole lot of international sports coverage, I mean I guess if I cared enough to go looking for it I'd find it, but I don't care, at all, I don't even care about American sports outside of the MLB this year, I refuse to watch them, and just like all the other leftist bullshit going on, they are too digging their own graves inserting the communist rhetoric into sports, and it may be unrepairable, this leftist shit is going to turn out to be a kiss of death to anyone who affiliates themselves with it, mark these words. sorry got off track there, oh fucking well!!
    • Oh I was most definitely lit, I was high as Giraffe pussy bro, there's shit that happened that one of my friends will say "remember when this shit happened" and I will not remember a single moment of it, you know like the years 98 to 2018, those years, so I am not to hard on myself for not remembering shit that I heard, because more times then not, I'll have heard it and completely do not remember, unless it stood out,, so yeah no bi-polar here, just completely fucking bashed for 2 decades, so don't be mean, or axe me to remember anything.
    • They certainly became more appealing to the masses under the Hagar regime but apart they were much better, Standing Hampton anyone? And yes I do prefer Dave over Sam in VH, the songs were more appealing to me, kind of like the Phil Collinless Leppard. As I prefer the Willis era. To each their own.
