NEWS SOURCE: Bride, a report
January 12, 2008

Bride Legendary hard rock / metal act Bride has begun discussing their latest project, previously rumored to possibly be their final album. Frontman Dale Thompson writes...

"In the next coming months things here are going to be crazy. The process of writing music for us is an adventure and filled with unimaginable excitement. Troy and I have decided to take the band into a direction that we should have gone a long time ago. When we were growing up there were so many great and talented bands writing memorable, age lasting songs. Bands such as Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Kansas, Blue Oyster Cult, Black Sabbath, Eagles, Deep Purple, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, Slade, ZZ Top and a big favorite of the band The Cult which came a long a little later.

With that said what we hope to do is combine many of the same vibes that we grew up on and produce an intense raw CD which showcases what we do best. And what we do best is play live. Over the years so many people have told us after seeing us in concert that the concerts were so much better than the records we were producing. Not to discredit any of our past producers but it is very hard for (a band on our level) to capture that energy of a live show in the studio. There are too many factors involved.

But we have learned a few studio tricks over the years and believe we can give our audience the raw essence and the soul of Bride.

The serious writing has already begun. Dale and Troy have been collaborating and will soon bring in Michael Loy on drums and so far they are still searching for the right bassist.

At the present Dale is involved in many things outside of the band. He is doing EMS work for the county in which he lives. He is also now a Personal Strength Trainer and Couch at the local YMCA. Along with his day job he doesn't have a lot of time. But once the full direction is none as to which way to point the band, Dale and Troy (who is still in computer operations and management at Fort Knox) will devote their time to producing the next Bride release.

A plan for a "Fan Financed CD" is being drafted and once this is complete you will be given the instructions on how to participate inn this venture.

As for now, keep Bride and their families in your prayers and expect great things (maybe even a tour) for 2008.
