Well someone at Spotify thought the same thing and they are now featuring an exclusive set of commentary tracks where Jon, Max and Tony
discuss each track on Speak In Code!
wrote the bass line for Downtown and Max doesn't think he'll be able to play it live and sing at the same time!
Tony Fagenson is a great drummer, but some of the drum patterns seem repetitive and uncreative.[Editor's note: Tony actually confirmed this "dirty little secret" in a recent interview on Westword.com.
Luckily, during the years between It's All In Your Head and Speak in Code, Max and Tony
put out music under the Sugi Tap moniker.
stated in interviews that Speak In Code would sound most like Horrorscope I became even more excited for the album.
has a bit of a new drum intro to Amphetamines.
In an orderly fashion the VIP's lined up to the side and groups were given a chance to meet the guys, get their laminates signed, and if you had a camera with, a staffer would snap a photo of you with Max, Jon, and Tony
didn't even hesitate to grab it and get it signed.
Max was on point right from the word go on this song, as were Tony
and Jon of course.
and Jon left the stage, Max picked up an acoustic guitar and, though I'm probably not getting the Maxism entirely correct, said something to the effect of it being a new tour and they were going to try something new tonight that they may or may not try again tomorrow.
Max hung onto the guitar for Pick Up the Pieces next, with Tony
and Jon back and fully plugged in.
Max and Tony
have been touring as Eve
6 since 2007, so the official tracklisting for the album contains many "new" songs that were familiar to the hardcore Eve
Eve 6 will be in studio at San Diego's 91X for an interview and live acoustic performance, according to a tweet by drummer Tony Fagenson:
In an October interview with AlternativeAddiction.com
talked a bit about the progression of Eve
6s sound and what Don Gilmore has brought back to the table (emphasis added):
"I think if I were to be honest it would be a little bit more of a return to a "Horroscope" sound.
"It's All In Your Head" was sort of a rawer record.
continued, "We stripped away a lot of the additional production that we had put on "Horroscope" to show a different side of the band and to show more of what we sound like live.
This quote from Tony
via last week's interview on AlternativeAddiction.com
speaks to that idea:
You'll spot archive footage of Jon's spiky red hair and bridge piercing, Tony's
frosted tips, and even an appearance on MTV
with Carson Daly.
The quality is OK, considering it was recorded from Tony's
living room through a computer.
has gone on the record to state that they've recorded 16 tracks for "Speak In Code," we've often noted that Tony
stated in a 2003 interview that over 50 songs were written "It's All in Your Head.
was first mentioned in an April Fool's Day post that Tony
made in 2010.
Eight months later, Eve
6 very graciously gave fans an awesome present for the holidays - a never before heard demo of the song.
It has appeared on set lists since.
Underachiever was first mentioned in the same 2010 April Fool's Day post by Tony
Will the song "All the Things" (played only once at Eve
6s first show back) get some love and attention in the studio and makes its way onto the new record? (unlikely, based on a tweet from Tony
that mentioned it was not one of 16 songs recorded in the studio.)
Will an incredibly catchy song like BOLD (Brotherhood of Lost Dogs) or Peace of Mind from The Sugi Tap EP be remained as Eve 6?
