Tom Keifer: New Album Features the ‘Heaviest Stuff’ He’s Ever Written or Recorded
Cinderella's Tom Keifer enjoyed a solid run for his first solo album The Way Life Goes, and while speaking with Trunk Nation host Eddie Trunk, the singer revealed his follow-up is nearly finished with a tentative plan to release it in late summer.
"We did our last show in November 2018 and went straight into the studio. We've been locked away as a band for a couple of months cutting tracks. We moved over from the tracking room to our studio at home, and we've been doing overdubs for probably the last six weeks or so, kind of 24/7. And we've actually almost finished the record, so it's been going really smooth," Keifer told Trunk (as transcribed by Blabbermouth). "The chemistry and the energy that you see with this band onstage translated amazingly into the studio. So we're very excited."
As for what fans can expect, Keifer added, "It's a little more focused. Every record that I've been involved in in the writing was always… I like that journey from beginning to end, that we have heavy, intense stuff and stuff that comes down to very organic, acoustic kind of stuff. So the way I would describe this record is the extreme ends, which is the heavy and the more intimate things, are as extreme as they probably have ever been. The heavy stuff is probably the heaviest stuff I've ever been involved in writing or recording. [And the organic stuff] is as intimate… where you hear every breath of the vocal — it's pretty exposed. Then things in between that are middle ground, but the heavy side is probably heavier than ever."
Giving an update on the status of the album, the vocalist stated, "We're hoping August. We're almost finished recording, and then we'll get into mixing. Our goal is to deliver it by the end of March to the label, and then they need setup time."
At present, no tour dates have been revealed, but with the album coming to its conclusion, look for Keifer to start lining up support for the upcoming release.
