————————————————————————————–
Producer/Frontman for THE ALIEN BLAKK Joshua Craig, has announced the release date for the new offering from THE ALIEN BLAKK, entitled “Bekoming” as April 6, 2010 for retail outlets in the North American territory.

Craig, commented on the extremely long delay of the new release saying, “I was signed to Black Lotus records, which went under. then, I was signed to Rotten Records and I bought the contract back due to many aspects, including but not limited to the fact that I missed a few deadlines and I ended up spending so much time and money in the studio working on newer music (Bekoming), that the label let me buy my contract back. I put in an extra thirty five or so thousand on top of my advance, which was no where near my advance figure. Oh yeah, before that, the originally intended drummer for the record and I were going to try to give this music a go, then went from Instrumental to vocally based. So, the direction and time line also got shifted, as did events in both of our lives.

Originally when the writing began for Bekoming, I was actually working with, get ready for this one,…the Brian “Head”  Welch camp. I had my own room in the recording studio where he was recording his solo effort, with my wall of guitars set up, pictures of friends and family hanging up in my room at that studio, my new signature guitar by Paul Reed Smith all ready to go, the whole situation seemed promicing at that point in time. I was working with Tony Levin, jammin with Steve Gadd and a bunch of cool musicians etc. I later felt, what I thought I wanted, had nothing to do with that projects objectives. I then disengaged from that situation. I was supposed to sign a recording deal for The Alien Blakk, but that label was a bit unclear of their intentions and I ended up not having any desire to work with that label. I was then offered a book deal, so I got a bit side tracked and wrote a book. -More on that later. but the book will be released before the cd (check the buy page on this site!).

Fast forward to a year later, when I was done recording and re recorded some parts. I recorded newer tracks and paid for an Alien tour of the U. S., just to try out the new music.In the end, I had the record mixed in a country where I was unable to attend the mixing sessions due to my book deadline commitments. I did all mix approvals thru e mail. Also, the mix engineer then got so much other work, my revised mixes took quite a while longer than I had originally perceived. Then (getting winded yet?!), by the time the music was done, it was just recently that I even began to shop this. I got 3 or 4 solid offers and of coarse, in the United States, you will be able to get it through this web site.

To wrap all of this up, you can also go to i tunes if you may like. If you may like a hard copy of the disc signed, it will be thru this web site for now!
