New Tracks Released From Make Music

Welcome to the first post of the year for A Rising Force – we’ve got new tracks for you! It’s been a while since the last update and we wanted to let you know the status of the album – Make Music. We’re still in production, but in the meantime, we wanted to release four of the new tracks that are finished.

These are the four tracks that we referenced in the previous post – Tour, Bright Eyed, Anyway… and Pickmeup; they were all mixed at the end of last year. While Tour, Bright-Eyed, and Pickmeup are mostly cleaned up and polished versions of the existing songs, Anyway… has evolved quite a bit since the last time I shared it. There is now a viola/violin string section that comes in about a minute into the song and adds a lot more depth. Please let us know how you like the new version in comments on SoundCloud!

Make Music - New Tracks on SoundCloud

Listen to the all the tracks on the album Make Music on A Rising Force – SoundCloud

While only a little less than half the tracks have been posted, the album is now more than halfway finished being mixed and more tracks will be posted in the coming weeks. The total number of complete tracks for the album is now up to five of thirteen. The next tracks that will be posted are Song3 and For All The Days My Muse Called In Sick. Both tracks have final recordings and just need to be mixed and mastered.

Please make sure to like, comment, and share A Rising Force Music with your friends to help us reach new people.  Do you have a favorite track on the album?  Let us now by liking it on SoundCloud! We hope you enjoy the new tracks and can’t wait to post the rest of the album!

Make Music Video Track Reviews For First Five Tracks

Lots to talk about tonight!  I’ve posted the first batch of content for the video section, adding track reviews for Opener, Tour, Bright Eyed, Anyway…, and Pickmeup.  With the videos comes the launch of the A Rising Force YouTube channel.  The first five videos have been posted to the Make Music – Track Reviews playlist.

The other thing I’ve done is launch the Facebook and Twitter accounts for the band.  You can follow our tweets @ARisingForce or look us up on the A Rising Force page.  There are also buttons at the top right side of the home page to follow our twitter feed or like our page.  Please share them with your friends!

Finally, I’ve finished up the links in the gear section – so you can check out all the pieces of equipment that were used in the production of the album.  There are also a new set of links on the righthand side of the page to companies that make cool and useful things like computers, music/video editing software, blogging tools, music/video sharing, etc.  I hope you find them helpful.

Next post will be an update to add more demos from the album to our SoundCloud.  Speaking of SoundCloud, I’ve updated the account recently so you can now download any of the tracks that are on the band page.  More to come this weekend…
