So, a couple of updates and exciting things ahead. First off, the last podcast for everyone:http://wpapu.com/ep-326-featuring-subsignal/
After a week off for vacation the show returns featuring a fantastic band from Germany, Subsignal. Theyve recently released The Beacons of Somewhere Sometime, their 4th studio effort. The band continues to distance themselves from their precursor of sorts, Sieges Even, and continues down a slightly more atmospheric sound as time moves along.
We also played the brand new Jolly song Ava, from their forthcoming album Family. The band is doing a newer form of crowdfunding called Patreon, and you can check out their campaign here. We will be discussing this new format on our forthcoming Music Mixer in December. Other definite topics will include the new Steven Wilson EP, 4 1/2, and the tough choice Transatlantic will face on future tours. Check out the video for Ava below.
Then there is the many bands that made their debut on the program tonight thanks to Cruise to the Edge. If you like what you heard tonight, please visit the online homes of Airbag, Bad Dreams, Messenger, Casey McPherson, and Lifesigns.
We also played the new track from Spocks Beard, Falling For Forever. The song comes from the new compilation, The First Twenty Years. Its not often I tell people not to buy something, but if youre already a Spocks Beard fan, go ahead and skip this one. Compilations mixed with original material are the devil, and buying them only assures that well see more of it.
A small Canadian trio named Rush also had a recent live released, with R40 Live. Still on the fence about this release, which can be found here? Well watch this video and then throw your money at the screen already.
To my American listeners, have a happy Thanksgiving, and to everyone else, a fantastic week, and thank you!

And now onto what's upcoming. Next up is the regular show this Wednesday. Then, on Friday my review for Cruise to the Edge will finally be finished. Much like with RoSfest, this will be an audio only review. Then Sunday the December edition of the music mixer will go online. A lot of good topics again this month, and so I'm really looking forward to doing that.
In the more distant future, the year end lists from Mason, Joe, and myself will be posted sometime mid to late December. In addition I really like Mason's idea for doing the audio this year. We'll be doing the audio portion together as opposed to doing separate audio for each of our lists.
Finally, as always, there will be an extended year end show exclusive to 2015 material. This will either be Dec. 30 or Jan. 6. Before I set the date I was hoping for some input from regulars on if there was any preference.
