Amber Pacific has posted a big update about their current status, new singer, and future plans. Check it out below.
So we’ve definitely been M.I.A. since around December of last year and we would just like to clear up a lot of what’s been going on in the world of Amber Pacific.
We know a lot of you are under the assumption that our former label Hopeless Records dropped us; this is not the case. We signed a deal with them in 2004 that was for 3 records which consisted of 1 EP and 2 LP’s. We have finished our end of the deal with them and have decided to part ways to pursue other label opportunities, were appreciative of everything they’ve done for us and I’m sure they appreciate us bringing All Time Low to them, ha! I only bring that up because I saw someone post something about us being jealous of where they are right now, this is also not true, we are entirely supportive of that band and it’s been a trip to see how far they’ve come in the amount of time it’s taken them to get there and we couldn’t be more happy for them, keep it up you sexy skinny jeaned, long haired, hoodie wearin’ dudes.
We would like to send out a huge thank you to everyone who submitted something for this spot, we received hundreds of emails and to get that kind of a response really was special for us. As some of you may know we think we’ve found someone with a special talent, a huge range, and someone who just might be skinnier than our wonderful bass player Greg. At any rate, we have big plans for this new voice and plan to reveal much more in the coming weeks, again from the bottom of our hearts, thank you to everyone who tried out.
Sitting at home since December has given us a lot of time to really focus our efforts on writing the best 10 or 12 songs we want you all to hear. We will continue working on this in the coming weeks but are also planning to have some new demo’s for you all very very soon so please stay tuned.
How could we pass up not talking about myspace right? Well here’s the deal, we have certainly neglected the page for the past couple months but with good reason. For some strange reason our friends number seems to be stuck right around 135,000 refusing to move up or down from that number yet we add several hundred people a day. We are working vigorously to fix this problem but in the mean time we plan on having a new look to the page that will include blogs, vlogs, and new pics of what our band is looking like these days so again, keep an eye out for those changes very very soon.
We are currently looking for anything that is going out in August on. We have been strangers to the road for far too long, in fact, this has been the longest we’ve been home in 4 years and we are damn near crazy. One can only play so much Halo before realizing their lives consist of music and the road so please if you are a band reading this and are looking for support, please feel free to reach out to us, we would love to hit the road for the rest of our lives.
We definitely plan on being out on the road as much as possible as soon as we find a new label. I’m sure we will have enough songs to record a new record by the end of the year and hopefully will be able to put it out early 2009. Our eyes are set on making a career out of this and we really appreciate the continued support through a very tough time. We’ve met so many great people along the way and you all are the reason why we want to keep this going. Make sure to get out their and support as many bands as you can, as you all know gas prices are through the roof and it is making it extremely hard to stay out on the road for a lot of bands so go say hi. Thanks again for everything and you’ll be hearing more from us soon, thanks!
