    Since talking about the band is apparently anathema (harhar har) on this board, here's a sticky thread for people just looking for information on the band and not the warm and lovely chatter of the regulars here.

    New album: motW is still laying down tracks for the new album. Drums were recorded in May, guitars and bass are what is currently being recorded. Everything else comes after those are done. The band is shooting for a "summer 2003" release, it's anybody's guess whether or not that will actually happen. The release will be a single CD, with a running time of about an hour, and will feature five songs, whose names are: The Antique, A Pitcher of Summer, The Manifold Curiosity, Wayfarer, and Marathon.

    Purchasing merch: All three motW albums are readily available from Dark Symphonies: http://www.darksymphonies.com . T-Shirts from the first album (the "Part the First" shirts) are now and will probably be forever more out of print. If you feel passionate enough about it, drop Dark Symphonies a line telling them how much you want one. If they get enough people asking, maybe they'll do another run. Who knows. Neither the band nor DS have any old stock to sell.

    If you want to hear what the band sounds like: Please visit our mp3.com site at http://artists.mp3s.com/artists/153/maudlin_of_the_well.html

    Fair warning: Pretty much nobody talks about the band in the other threads. Doing so will probably get you made fun of. Well, not really, but you might not get a ton of serious responses.

    Chupe666 is in November's Doom. So is November's Paul. Tell Chupe how much you like his watch.

    just to add to Sam's post. I just got back from the studio. And now the bass for the new motW is essentially done on all five songs, aside from little bits Nicholas may want to fix up at a later point. And I layed down some improv stuff tonight and will hopefully finish all of my part of the album tomorrow.

    Huh. I thought they were planning to do a new one, not reprint the old one. Maybe that's still the plan.

    <---- Out of the loop.

    as long as no one asks when the new album is coming out or if it's going to be another 2 cd release because we had about 19 threads asking the same question

    so here's another update from the studio.

    Drums, Rhythm and lead guitars, bass, and special effects are done.

    Next up: keys, vox, strings, and winds and then we mix and master and release. :headbang:

    ANNOUNCEMENT: I am no longer an actively participating member of the entity known as maudlin of the Well.. It was a great 4-5 years and the departure was 100% amicable.

    You guys must keep in mind that this band has done 5 full lengths, and each one has had a different line up. "Begat" had 3 members, "Wife" had 5 members, "My Fruit" had 6, "Bath" and "LYBM" had 8, and this next record has 5, with guests of course.

    The point is, losing/gaining members is nothing new. Look at motW as a 'project' as opposed to a 'band' and it makes more sense.

    true. but it's still dissapointing seeing a whole new line up on every cd. and i know we've asked this many times, but are you ever going to re-release "begat" and "wife"?

    considering the better versions of most of those songs appear on Bath/LYBM then no.
