So I must apologize for my tardiness (again), but I have been bizzybizzy.
Mainly I've been dividing my time between working on my biceps by benchpressing Ferraris filled with supermodels and teaching the homeless to read.
All the rest of my hours have been spent slaving on Blaqk Audio. We're entering the studio in a matter of days to record vocals. We're very excited.
I'll be posting a tracklisting and an album title when it's finalized.
We also have a website, blaqkaudio.com, which will be undergoing a major transformation very soon.
If I have any time I'm going to try to put together a couple of simple t-shirt designs too.
In the meantime I thought I'd post lyrics to one of the songs, just so you know I'm not lying about us finally putting out this album.



Black-Ink Style


So she found him in a sprawl, collapsed and glowing pale

on the ground. His hair spread like a melting angel

like a fire crawling across the floor.

In this moment, in this still inchoate

she loves him.

In this moment, in this light she loves him like no one has.

He held onto elegance easily.

She'd never seen him this way.

She holds on to this picture lit perfectly

and she holds the dust forever.

So he finds her in a sprawl, woven deep in memories revisited and reworked.

The scars get covered up with cherry blossoms that never felt

as soft as this

He held onto elegance easily.

She'd never seen him this way.

She Holds on to this picture lit perfectly

and she holds the dust forever.

Freeze the frame right here he found the perfect pose.

It comes to him naturally.

Freeze the frame right there he found the perfect pose

It came to him naturally.

Surely you must remember him?

ElysiumYarns said...

Oh wow, I really excited now!

Jen said...

I can't wait to wear my BlaqkAudio shirt to work, having everyone stare at my chest just to see if they can decipher what it says - presuming it would in fact be written someone on the front of the shirt.

Just don't put a disco ball on there, k?

LydiaT said...

Ha! You never fail to make me laugh! I am so amazingly exicted about this now... And I know it will not disappoint!

Girls Don't Cry said...

As much as I encourage your selfless ways, I must confess that the Blaqk Audio update is the most exciting thing here.

The lyrics are amazing, as usual, and I can't begin to express how excited I am for this long-awaited arrival.

Give those fancy biceps a flaunting kiss for me.

Paige Murder said...

Ah! Jade! These are amazing!

I cannot WAIT to hear what you guys come up with!

Ingenious. Simply. Ingenious.

Endlessly,
Paige.

stephanie said...

Katie said...

That's so nice of you to teach the homeless to read.
As for the benchpressing ferraris filled with supermodels... well....

Anyway... I can't wait for Blaqkaudio and thanks for the proof that you're not lying. Sounds amazing already.

That song is beautiful Jade. I absolutely can not wait now!!

Love the update!

Ashling said...

How exciting!

Glad to hear from you Jade. =)

Fluffo said...

That reminds me of an x-rated fanfiction I wrote when I was thirteen.

Fantastic- I promise I'll be first in line for the record in my general area. Hurry up and record it already; I could use some new electro lovin.

Psyhco muse said...

This is the happy news I needed after realizing sats are in two weeks. The lyrics were awesome

Nightmare Nikki said...

WII!!! (<--new official spelling of "whee")

So exciting ^_^ I can't wait for that website to be interactive -_-

The lyrics are lovely and so full of imagery *_* Both you and Davey wrote or just Davey? And will both of you sing? I hope so :x

Can't wait to hear!

volare said...

WHOA.

OH HOLY SHIT.

I am going to pee when it comes out!

MK said...

totally breath-taking lyrics.

Amazing! =]

xo

volare said...

Waaaaiit a second.. bench-pressing supermodels doesn't count. Might as well be lifting styrofoam, it has about the same degree of personality and that special, artificial plastick-y feel...

auntcp said...

Eagerly awaiting the cd. Thank's for the update

Bailey said...

Sweeeeet.
Sounds awesome.
And we all know I'm not one for the buttkissing...in fact, I avoid anything that could be confused with it, but this...
Well, it's good stuff.

But how do we know you're not lying and those lyrics aren't even real!?
What if this is all just a figment of my imagination...?

Earth Day said...

Ohy!! BA is coming along!

MalleusMaleficarum[♥] said...

You're such a pimp, you and your supermodel babes, Ferraris AND now the homeless.
Son of a beesting, I'm rather excited :]
and those lyrics are extreme, however, if Blaqk Audio fails to travel to my wee island known as New Zealand, I shall be saddened, and you shall no longer be the pimp you are.
Okay I lie, that isn't possible.
Love love love love

-Take care.

Lil Laker said...

natalieee! said...

Hey Jade! Can't wait to see the Blaqk Audio shirts. The lyrics sound amazing. You can always put a smile on my face :D I'm so proud of you helping the homeless read. But the ferraris with supermodels, no comment. Well I hope your biceps are coming along well and good luck in the studio! And say hi to Davey, Hunter, Adam and Smith for me. And just one more favour! Please come to Canada for my birthday. Later

courtney said...

I've never rad lyrics so beautiful. Truely gorgeous. The reality of the lyrics almost brought tears to my eyes. Who wrote them?

Verdiana said...

This will be the highlight of my year. :D

WHITEgillis said...

i am quite excited for blaqk audio; i truly need my electronic fix. i have been listening to the faint and fischerspooner the past few weeks nearly non-stop (along with some intermittent afi). thank you for the sampling of the lyrics; they were simply stunning. i applaud the author of the lyrics; whether it was yourself or davey i do not know. i wish you luck in the studio!

s omber resplendence said...

Benchpressing with supermodels?

... are you sure your girlfriend doesn't mind?

Haha. Well, I'm glad you and Davey have gotten this thing worked out. I can't wait to get the new album. :]

Bandito said...

Badass.

jadedgeekgirl said...

Yays. That's a tight song if songs can be tight. I'm pretty sure they can be though cos I have heard people say they like songs, and then they say the song is cool, which also means tight. Now I'm just rambling.
Fucken Aye

Nixx said...

Ugh, amazing, Jade! Thanks so much for sharing this with us, we've been growing impatient :P.

Hope all is well and I can't wait to buy the shirts. I'm excitedly anticipating the record :).

accidentalcharm said...

Congratulations- you made my heart beat faster by making this post.

There are no words to describe how excited I am, except maybe incoherent ones. Perhaps you derived inspiration from APB or VNV? Regardless, I know the product is going to sound AMAZING.

Ciao For Now,
Mel

AnotherFireInside said...

Jade,

I am so unbelievably excited to read this, get some lyrics, know that you're actually going to record, know Davey is singing, read the word "bizzybizzy," and then eventually hear this album. I've been listening to VNV, Apop, Covenant, Cesium, Assemblage, and anything else electronic lately (shit! I almost forgot Depeche Mode!), and since I love your programming on DU, I'm sure I'll absolutely adore this Blaqk Audio album.

Jennifer said...

Those lyrics are beautiful.
