yeah but having the amount of studio time and money will make a difference how and when it can come out. The 1st record took almost 3 years to finish.

If I ever win the lottery, I'm going to set aside $100k just to support small bands in ways like this. I'd love to be able to give them all the money they needed to make the album they want.

another post on facebook in regards to the projected timeframe. 1 album a year through and including in 2016?

Quote
Epilogue - Album #7 (2010), Mars/Brighton Part II - Album #6 (2011), now if you do the math, you will find out just the minimum amount of time you'll have to deal with us.

also I put on the demos again today. Man, the arrangement of the Dimmer Lux DEMO is awesome! I almost prefer it to the album version now. The vocal harmonies and string arrangement is godly.

from a bitrate standpoint, they're 320 kps. Some of the songs sound like demos, but some certainly sound more than good enough to listen to. I mean Jessy emphasized in that video, some of them are only demos and weren't mastered, but say compared to The Dear Hunter's early demos, they're just as good if not better actually.

Just listened to a random track, and this actually sounds pretty cool. Guess it was my luck that I looked at this thread for the first time today.

So, if this Epilogue was the first album of six or seven, how many of the others have they released (if any)?

Epilogue is the only one that's been released so far.

I just noticed Casey Crescenzo posted this on twitter

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fallingup/falling-ups-new-album

Falling Up, Jessy and Josh Shroy's other/older band, are also working on a new record, and looking to fund it (like they tried with the upcoming TRE album). And it's impressive to notice how many pledges and and how much money they've already raised (over $7,000). I chipped in anyway, for one, because I do enjoy their last album, Fangs, especially. But also am curious what they may do next.

I need to pickup a copy of Falling Up's "Fangs" soon. Some excellent tracks on that record, perhaps my favorite being "The Chilling Alpine Adventure."

so the aim for the new The River Empires record "Mars/Brighton II" is now more likely Fall. And there's supposed to be a documentary of some sort included with it. Jessy mentions it in a new interview here:
http://sideburnsmovement.blogspot.com/2011/03/interview-with-jessy-ribordy-from-river.html

I am pretty excited for that, but in the short term, Jessy's focus right now is with Falling Up who announced their new album "Your Sparkling Death Cometh" is being released in June (28th according to Wikipedia).

Will it end up on the new album? I probably wont listen to it if it does, don't really want to spoil it.
Really been waiting for a new album by these guys, feels like it has been post-poned several times, though 2 years between albums isn't long. :P

TRE was probably one of my top 3 discoveries of last year. I'm hoping the new album will be released sometime soon.

Update about future updates.

http://www.facebook.com/theriverempires/posts/10151357038970140

Hello there fine folk! So I wanted to update everyone, being it's the last day of 2012, and obviously the new album hasn't come out yet! I'll keep this brief and to the point.

During the last two years, a few situations have occurred. Due to some sensitive subject matter, I shouldn't explain the details. But because of the circumstances, my priorities had to shift around and a couple other projects had to be finished first. I've worked on the new TRE album for two years and slowly ebbed away at it. But I haven't been able to put the finishing time into it that it deserves, due to what's stated above.

Once in a while, when I'd see the light at the end of the tunnel, my excitement would overwhelm me (hence the premature declarations of the release date). So for that I apologize.

I will no longer announce dates until the album is packaged! That's my New Year's resolution to all of you TRE fans. And despite all that has happened the past couple years, I am still stoked as ever for you all to hear the new album. Although it will still continue the tale, moving backward, it also holds a lot of my personal experiences within the songs. I greatly treasure what this new album is becoming with each passing day, and I look forward to sharing it with all of you. Thanks for being the best fans! Looking forward to a great year!

bump.

I know this is super old, and this bump is nothing HUGE, but

Jessy did reply on twitter a few months ago about The River Empires, The Gloomcatcher and an Unnamed Musical Project he is still planning to have.

@FigureFilbert TRE, TGC, solo project, unnamed band all will continue, but their releases will just be spaced over the next couple years

Their album was so good that I'm still bummed we never got the promised sequel. Maybe it will happen but I've heard so many "its happening next year" or "we are gonna do it" that it's almost another Tool situation. :(

you're right (although with Tool, the financial part may not be so much of the issue, that TRE it may), and it may be awhile, but the post I passed along before was from December.



He just added a few minutes ago:

I'm waiting to announce until the first single and artwork are ready so that it's special. Keep holding tight. You're all the best!

I guess I'm not sure why he would have started a new unnamed project at least, and not actually do anything with it.

TRE though, it's music that requires so much time and people I presume, the time frame could be well longer.

Now I haven't heard of this band, but looking at the posts here, it seems like they started off with something way too ambitious for anyone to attempt. It's like Sufjan Stevens trying to write an album for each US state (50 of them), or Guillemots, who attempted to release 4 albums in a year based on each season. Coming up with the ideas is the easy part, the actual execution of those ideas is somewhat harder. And it leaves fans who were anticipating them to happen disappointed. I mean, look how long it took Mike Portnoy to complete the 12-Step Suite. It became a far bigger beast than even he thought it would.

I think you would definitely like it knowing how much you like TDH. It's perhaps more to the indie side than prog, but if you like the strong melodies in TDH I think you will really like The River Empires. :)
