YOU HAD ME AT “RWAKE”
Rwake is a band we don’t write about as much as we should because, honestly, they don’t generate as much news as we’d like. They only tour occasionally and haven’t released an album since 2007’s nut-bustingly awesome Voices of Omens. I’m hoping they’ll get a new album out in 2010, but haven’t really heard anything. The band announced that they were “writing some more tunes” on their MySpace page, but that was back in March already.
At least we know that vocalist CT has been keeping busy: according to Invisible Oranges, he’s co-directing the documentary Slow Southern Steel, about, uh, well, it should seem obvious. The film is apparently still a work-in-progress, but since that never stops Hollywood from releasing a trailer, why should it stop CT and co-director David Lipke?
You can get more info on Slow Southern Steel here. It seems to have a tentative release date of May 2010.
