Wow!!! Its December already again! However 2020 has been quite the year for everyone indeed. Usually I’d be saying things are slowing down due to shopping and spending time at family functions and gatherings. Well thats just not in the cards this year. STILL I’ll be keeping busy with all things Chris Cyanide related.
First up. I’ll be releasing another single the week of Christmas as a free download. I’ve decided to go with my track “Cobra Strike”. It will be available on my Reverbnation as well as my Soundcloud sites along with my previous release “Bomb Everything” I’ll leave them both open as free downloads from Dec. 24th. to Jan. 1st. Thats a total of 9 days they’ll be available free. I felt that the last time I released a free download for Halloween, I didn’t really give a lot of time for anyone to check it out and download. You’ll have plenty of time now.
New album: I’ve been hard at work preparing things for the release of “Don’t Look In The Bassment” by The Chris Cyanide Bass Solo Project. Getting the album art together and working things out with getting all the CDs made. I’m shooting for a release date in hopefully January. I’ll have the actual release date announced in January’s blog. Everything seems to be moving along nicely and I should have a brand new album out for the new year.
New merch: New Chris Cyanide t-shirts are being designed as I write this. I’ve needed new t shirts badly. I still have some of the old ones but they don’t represent the Chris Cyanide of today. They’re being designed by Sinister Visions which also happens to be who designed my new album cover. I also have plans for a new run of Cyanide Hats but that will have to wait until later in the new year as there are a few hurdles to jump first. I’ll of course keep you all updated on that.
Cyanide content. I just did a live stream show with Shannon Fatale in the newly revamped Cyanide Studio. We both felt that this performance came out exceptionally well! The sound and video quality was good, Shannon killed it with her dancing and looked awesome and I played my ass off and didn’t really make significant mistakes. I also happened to have recorded the entire thing. We thought it would be a great idea to break up each song into individual videos and post them to Youtube and Facebook. The first one “Undead Nanites” is already posted up on Facebook and you can go there to check it out now.
Shows: Still no real shows are happening for The Chris Cyanide Bass Solo Project. I still see a few things getting snuck in here and there with some other bands but it seems that live stream is the way to currently go as of now. My next live stream event will be 6pm December 20th. I’ve decided to change up my setlist to keep things fresh and perform 6 songs and possibly include a few covers depending on if I can get anyone to sing. Either way you’ll be getting a dose of industrial metal, bass solo awesomeness!!!
Thats all for now. I’ll keep you all updated if anything changes. I wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season and I’ll seeya all in the new year. —Cyanide Out
