I don't think it's that... they've probably been working on it in a sporadic way for lots of reasons, and they didn't start recording until last year (I think). It's not like they've been in the studio since 2007.

The recording has to be finished to be able to mix it. I don't know if it's completely finished or not.

They knew they'd be finishing soon and given that it normally takes 2 months for a company to get a cd out I see why just two months ago SA expected it to be a Fall release. I'm guessing they assumed they would be dealing with a normal company. It sounds to me like they're dealimg with some start up company that doesn't have their finances/facilities in order yet. I think the band can do better for themselves.
Three months is normal for an album to come out after it's completed in the studio. Anyway, it's too early to presume that they're dealing with a start up company. If they just recently signed with this record company, then it's normal that there has to be a lot of financial stuff to be taken care of and I can imagine that they want to take their time to (like I said before) put the word out and start some kind of promotional thing.

But anyway, I'm just guessing... it's not like I know what the deal is.

Well what I meant was do you think it's possible they could've recorded all the parts of one song, mixed it, recorded the next song, mixed it and just did it song by song? Or do they always wait till every single song is recorded to do the mixing? (I don't know anything about the process of making an album)

I suppose that's possible, but it would be a strange way of making an album... usually the person that mixes an album doesn't come in until the whole album is recorded.

It seems my earlier reply didn't go through. I voted April 2012, though I hope for much sooner. Us die hard fans are ready and if everyone else hasn't realized the awesomeness of this band yet, they never will. Due to the bands recent track record of release dates, I propose they call the album "Whenever, If Ever, Whatever" :lol: I can't wait for the new record and to see them live again!!

I blame Tommy. He brought that GnR Chinese Democracy curse to SA. (joke)
Remember when it took forever for Chinese to come out? BTW it also took BOSTON a long time to put out albums. I hope they arent over-tweaking it.
Its rock & roll. press the record button - and throw it out there.

I don't think it's that... they live spread out over the country and it's probably not easy getting everyone together at the same time, and there's no rush for them to do it... I wish there was though... and I can become a fan again.

That's fucking hilarious

According to Tommy in a recent interview he seems to think it'll come out in the 1st or 2nd quarter in 2012
Interviewer - You're a busy guy -- GN'R, solo, and Soul Asylum.
Tommy Stinson - Yeah, [Soul Asylum] did a whole new record, and I think it's probably going to come out soon. Hopefully first or second quarter.
You can check out the entire interview here but there's nothing more than that on Soul Asylum. http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/uponsu ... tinson.php
Never, forever, whatever!
