I’m proud to announce that on April 20th, 2018, my new album Acquiescence will finally be released.
The album can now be pre-ordered via Bandcamp and will available in both CD & digital formats. You'll receive the first 2 tracks off of the album immediately upon purchase, then...
Once the album is officially released, not only will you get the entire 16 track album, you'll also receive these choice BONUS ITEMS:
The album will be on iTunes soon, if that's your bag. (but you won't get any of these neat bonus items I'm including in the Bandcamp download)
Be sure to follow me on Instagram to watch and hear more clips from the album!
Until then...be excellent to each other.
What does that even mean? I don't know...it sounded cool at the time. Anyway - ACQUIESCENCE is done! "The dishes are done, man!"
If you're following @geoffbarone on Instagram then you'll be seeing daily posts of little slices of the cover art for the album.
Check out the first post below and don't forget to follow. When all slices have been shown, then all will be revealed about pre-order and official release dates.
Hi folks, Geoff Barone here.
It's been awhile. It's February now so you may have asked yourself "Geoff, what's up with your album? Are You Done Yet?" ...almost...
As you may recall, I announced the release of Acquiescence was going to happen way back in August 2017...well obviously that wasn't the case. See, I got to a point in October that I just didn't wanna look at the sessions anymore...I just couldn't. I was burned out. It was a mixture of burnout and fear….
“happy anniversary, happy anniversary!!”
Five years ago today, I released my concept album: Conversation Pieces.
It was a success on a few levels. First, it garnered some really great reviews from such publications as PROG & Progression magazines. It was featured on both 8BitX and Progtopia Podcasts and sold out of all the limited number of physical CD’s I got pressed (well a ¼ of those I just gave away)
Do you ever feel alone?
Do you ever feel like there's no one around to talk to?
I've spent a lot of time by myself whilst recording Acquiescence and as you will see in this new album update video, it seemed like the only person I had to talk to was... myself. ;)
Hope you enjoy it..I know we did.
Geoff! Summer is over, where's the new album?!?! Tell me, what's the deal!?
Well, I had hoped to get Acquiescence out by August, but then the summer happened. August came and went and now it's almost October!! Oh, and then my ADD took over and I started working on my rock opera again and then Kim Rose flew into town for another super songwriting weekend, etc etc, excuses, excuses...
Hello everyone, Geoff here and this is an album update number #3. (aka Geoff sucks at guitar!) I wanted to give you guys a little glimpse into the guitar recording process for this album.
See my goal was to utilize many different guitars that we combined their respective tones and timbre’s to create a nice...
This is album update number two blog for Acquiescence... and although this is kind of an extension of my first update and I may be repeating myself just wanting to give you a bit more insight and a little bit more background about the album...
Alright!! After mulling over a few names, I've decided my new album will be entitled "Acquiescence" Set for release this summer, (which is looking like mid to late July at this point), this album will contain 14 new tracks, written back in February. With the exception of the instrumental and one of the bonus tracks that were written back in 2012 during Superstorm Sandy. The styles are ranging from hard rock to bluegrass, acoustic ballads to face-crushing progressive metal blah blah blah.
As I mentioned in my Blog post from March 2017...
Well…the songwriting bug hit me something fierce at the beginning of February. I mean, I am always writing…always creating. Even if it’s a little riff here or a little lyrical idea or song title, I am always open and have my antennae on. At the start of February, instead of jumping into...
