The Livid news RSS news feed for the rock band The Livid en (Adam Benning) (Bart Nagel) Sun, 07 Feb 2016 00:01:00 -0600 Tue, 22 Sep 2009 00:00:00 -0500 Music RSS generator 0.92 by Bart Nagel Update Hey gang!!! It's been a while since we've had any news so we thought we'd bring you up to speed on what's new in Livid-land. Pre-production for the new record is scheduled to commence within the next week. All the songs have been written and we should be in the studio recording them by mid-June. The new album will be entitled "The Ambition Within" and will have 10 songs on it. We're hoping to have the album ready to sell for some time in August of this year. We'll keep you all posted. On another note, we hope all the kids are gonna be coming to the show at Club Rockit in June cuz it'll be the first chance for most of you to see The Livid at real venue that sounds a lot better than the Masonic Lodge. It's a Friday night, it's in Toronto and it's all ages!!! Tickets are $8 and we only have 21 left so e-mail ASAP if you need any. See you soon!!

Good times will be had by all... </p><p>On another note, Season 6 of The Sopranos started last night (March 12th).

It's called More Than a Lifetime and has four brand new songs. The lineup for this release is a mixture of new and old: Chris on guitars of course, Adam and Rob on drums and bass and the original singer, Jeremy, on vocals. The EP is available for download from the website for $8 CAD. Go get it. All the money will go towards hitting the studio again in the future. We're hoping to get it up on Itunes and similar at some point but we're not sure how long this will take. The band aren't going to be touring but they are looking to play a show or two in the near future -- it'll be announced on the site when plans have been made and I may send out another email at that point. I've also re-enabled registration on the forum in case anyone new wants to come along and talk about the record. If you're an old member and have forgotten your password (I did) shoot me an email at bart at and I'll reset it for you. Your username (even a rough idea) would help, or the email address you registered with. Hope you enjoy the record! Bart Tue, 22 Sep 2009 00:00:00 -0500
