Title: FROST
Post by: PH on Fri, 2005-09-30, 08:29:59
I don't know if you already know this.
FROST is a band (I don't know everything about it) with John Mitchell playing the guitars!
on their official website (http://www.f-r-o-s-t.com) you can download some examples!

In fact, I find it very new, and I'm not sure about that genre...

I will follow this "Million Town" project anyway.

Regards,

Paco

Whoa, cool. I like what I hear, extremely! This sounds very promising!

Who's Jem Godfrey?
Title: Re: FROST
Post by: PH on Sat, 2005-11-05, 17:26:54
I don't know who Jem Godfrey is... Never heard of him...

Anyway he's singing on this one.

There are other samples on this website than there was before...

By the way, I'm liking this more than I did at first.

*BUMP*

I begin to like this more and more now.
It almost sounds like something similar to Kino. (But Frost is heavier).

Even the front cover for Frost's Milliontown is designed by Paul Tippett who also did the cover for Kino's Picture!!

(http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/5895/1207/400/Picture%201.2.jpg)

The album is being mastered on February 3rd.

There'll be an epic song that lasts 23 minutes and 45 seconds!!
And when I listened to No Me No You sample I thought I heard John Mitchell sing! It's so similar. Maybe he does backing vocals too.

Promising stuff.

Yes John did sing for this

Anyway, this afternoon before I staggered off home, I managed to capture the voice of John Mitchell who's added his lovely rasp to a couple of the tracks.

It's really fun to read the blog on FROST's site!

I digged into the archive and found something funny:

There is now an almost finished version of Black Light Machine (10:05) with opening vocals by John and loads and loads of really great/magnificent/awesome guitar also by John, check it out at the link above.
I've got to say i'm really liking where some of this modern prog is going!

Arena is one of the bookest bands I ever came across. Of course not as book as Genesis which still remains the bookest band on earth.
By the way, I think it's also very book outside nowadays.

How dare you say Genesis is the bookest band on an Arena-forum! Shame on you! You obviously think you are book, but guess what: You are not!  :P ;D ;)

Book down, book down! ;D


Anybody heard anything new about the album?? I can hardly wait...



EDIT: This is soooooooo hilarious!
Jem Godfrey's rendition of a Genesis classic, "All In A Mouses Night" sung to the tune of "Fit, But You Know It" by The Streets. (http://www.f-r-o-s-t.com/Resources/FIT.mp3)

"C'mon baby, let the poor thing go..."
"I'm not sleeping with that fucking thing around here, no!"
LOL

*written by Tony Banks*

So hilarious.

Jem Godfrey will be doing something on the next KINO album too!

Who's Jem Godfrey?

Jem Godfrey played keys in a band called "Freefall"
http://www.lazygunrecords.com/freefall/freefall.htm (http://www.lazygunrecords.com/freefall/freefall.htm)

The release of "Milliontown" is planned for the summer 2006, followed by a tour in autumn. Look for the "Frost - Milliontown" topic on the IQ forum website.

Cheers, Michael

I've put Black Light Machine on a CD a few days ago and found myself listening to it nearly everyday.
It's just an amazing song with a lot of odd twists and an absolutely BRILLIANT guitarsolo.

Does anyone have heard something by Freefall? I don't know it. But it's not prog is it?
Title: Re: FROST
Post by: Micha on Thu, 2006-04-20, 21:42:26
The music of Freefall was a mixture of prog and metal elements: http://www.gepr.net/fm.html#FREEFALL (http://www.gepr.net/fm.html#FREEFALL)
You can turn to the IQ-Forum at http://www.gep.co.uk/iq/ (http://www.gep.co.uk/iq/) and try to contact Jem Godfrey (Nick: Jem) for further informations.
Title: Re: FROST
Post by: Stuart on Sun, 2006-04-30, 21:47:52
I'd suggest that the easiest way of contacting Jem is via his blog http://www.milliontown.blogspot.com/ (http://www.milliontown.blogspot.com/), as commenting has recently been turned on.

Looks like Milliontown will release July 24th generally in Europe, but July 21st in Germany for some reason, and July 18th in the US, all on Inside Out Records.
Title: Re: FROST
Post by: PH on Mon, 2006-05-01, 09:24:04
Why first the US? And then Germany?? And then Europe? Which means UK gets it last. Jem lives in UK but it's the country which get it last...

Strange.

Ahh it's just a matter of a few days.

Title: Re: FROST
Post by: Stuart on Mon, 2006-05-01, 17:20:21
I guess it's the logic of a predominatly US distributor who works through different channels in different regions, though why Germany is not in Europe I can't fathom out, and at this point I'll save you all the Euro rant ;)

Frost has been the subject of some forum love this week too. The chaps at the Mike Portnoy forum have been casting their learned eyes over here, as have the Arena guys and the Spock's people in Germany amongst others. The only trouble is I think I've become the victim of administrator discrimination. I've tried to register at both the Portnoy and the Arena forums and have been stonewalled. My inbox remains devoid of my confirmation emails.

Oh and while I remember, can I just say THANK YOU! to Pallas. For reasons that will become clear shortly
in your blog.

Could that mean that you're going to tour with them?

And then you say

I've spent nearly 2 years crafting this musical thing only to delete the whole bloody lot at the end

Why the hell would you have wanted to do that? I'm a "non-deleter", I keep even the crappiest pieces of code I come up with on my machine...

Sadly we had to ditch lightbulb man as he was too expensive. So we shot all our own stuff instead. I think it's looking pretty cool though. The CD booklet stuff is even better!  :)

I've got Paul Tippett to thank for the artwork. He did the Kino album last year and I think he's gone one better for Frost. IMO.

With regard to Pallas, there is some talk of us supporting them on their Autumn tour. Nothing definite yet though. Contracts and all that...

Then perhaps we'll work our way up to a few headline shows after that. I need to write a bit more of the next album first though or else our set'll be a bit short! ;)

It looks GREAT *horns*, and the stuff on your weblog is also great *horns*, I can't wait to see the full booklet!! ;D


I've got Paul Tippett to thank for the artwork. He did the Kino album last year and I think he's gone one better for Frost. IMO.

The style is indeed somewhat the same as Kino's! Kino was Paul Tippett's first albumartwork right? He did a fine job on that, and now this absolutely wonderful artwork for Frost! Amazing!


With regard to Pallas, there is some talk of us supporting them on their Autumn tour. Nothing definite yet though. Contracts and all that...

Pallas instead of IQ? Well, in that case I've got to get my dad into Pallas first. LOL. No matter with whom you'll be touring, I'll be at the Dutch Frost-gig, I can't wait!!!

Hello Funkster,

Why thank you :). it was only 2 A.K. number 1's though. I co-produced Holly Valance's Kiss Kiss track as well, that went to number 1, but nobody ever remembers that one! :D

Anyway, gigs! Yes there are some dates appearing, only support slots for now. We haven't got enough songs for a full set yet...

I'm not allowed to reveal what they are yet though. There'll be lots of info on the shiny new Frost website which will launch in a couple of weeks time (ish) ;)

Lastly, you leave The Boy Edwards alone!, he's a delicate flower and it took him ages to get his hair right.  ;D ;D

Hip-hip-hooray!

I've got a question for you Jem. On the downloads I heared so far, John sings with a somewhat distorted voice. To be very honest, I think he has a great voice without effects, so what made you decide to use these effects?

Congrats indeed! ;)

So what for should we be on the lookout? Pallas or IQ?
I want to make a schedule, because I want to go to Frost, Stream Of Passion, Kino, Arena etcetera etcetera...

Pallas' website isn't very informative, but where can I find tourdates for Pallas?

Hip-hip-hooray!

I've got a question for you Jem. On the downloads I heared so far, John sings with a somewhat distorted voice. To be very honest, I think he has a great voice without effects, so what made you decide to use these effects?


Good question JJ II, in production terms, John's voice untreated just didn't fit in to what the track was doing at that point. Black Light Machine is about television and I wanted to give the impression that the voice was coming out of a crackly old analogue TV. A bit blurred and flickering. I love to experiment with sound and I don't hold the human voice as so sacred that it can't be messed about with. I was always inspired by how Gabriel used his voice so creatively, he could take it from emotional to absolutely frightening. Most of the time he did it with effects and I'm very much the same. I treat the voice just as I would a guitar, sometimes you have to shove it through a whole bunch of distortion or degredation to get it to sound "right". There are more 'normal' bits of vocal on Milliontown, but there's also extremely effectd bits. Light and shade I guess. Just to have an untreated voice singing an hour's worth of music would get a bit boring for me. It might as well be just an accoustic guitar and a folk singer :) I'm going to be experimenting with my voice too when we go out live. I've got a TC Helicon Vocal processor which my microphone will pass through before it gets to the mixing desk. I've got pitch shifters, bit crushers, formant shifters, a vocoder...loads of interesting possibilities. Should be very interesting I hope.
Title: Re: FROST
Post by: JJ II on Wed, 2006-05-31, 10:36:16
Interesting approach, though I tend to disagree with you on the comparison of a guitar with the human voice. Of course you could say both are instruments, but personally I think a voice says a lot more about a person than the equipment he's working with (a guitar, for example).

I see what you say about contrast, it works very well e.g. in Arena's Mea Culpa, where the moment when Rob comes in with his REAL voice is one of the most stunning moments. On the other hand: the effected vocals in that track are not half as emotional as the second part. My point was: this kind of a change doesn't happen in BLM, so the contrast is lacking...

For some reason, with these treated vocals (and I don't mean just bits for effects, but when it's all the way) I always think 'well, (s)he probably can't sing'. This happens a lot with the modern top of the pops material, but it was done with Madonna in the 80's as well.
Maybe it's a matter of taste, but I tend to find real voices more personal than effected ones. They touch me more. Especially in John's case, for example in the end of Losers Day Parade or in Picture...

Anyhow: it was my only minor comment on the track I heared, because I liked it very much overall.
Title: Re: FROST
Post by: PH on Wed, 2006-05-31, 15:23:16
Hmmm I think it's all good actually.
I've just listened to the excerpt of Milliontown on the myspace site. 'till now I've only listened the small samples, but the excerpt is already stunning! Can't wait to hear the full song, it might even be better than BLM!

By the way, I played some Prog yesterday in the supermarket, noone complained. There was one colleague who liked everything he heard, and there was also one who liked nothing of it (he only listens to U2 and nothing else...).

Black Light Machine was the highlight of the evening for me. So many instrumental solos, too bad I only had to work one hour more, I hoped I had to work two hours more!! Hehehehe.

I bought the Shrek soundtrack, Genesis' The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway and Arena's Pepper's Ghost there, so I think when it comes available they'll have Milliontown there as well. *horns*

Yes, it is quite good isn't it!!!

Actually... yes... it is one of the best in my collection! I'm very proud of it! ;D

My favourite tracks are:
- The Other Me
- Black Light Machine
- Milliontown

Snowman is very unique too, it comes right after my three favourite.
Milliontown is something difficult, 'cause it seems it's not really a whole. The parts don't fade in each other (don't know how to say it properly in English). For example. Moviedrome is very much the same the whole 20 minutes (while still very good ofcourse!) while Milliontown is more like a couple of different songs glued to each other.
But then again the different songs are quite good!
Title: Re: FROST
Post by: johninblack on Thu, 2006-08-03, 20:34:07
I know what you mean, for me the better tracks are

Hyperventilate - One of the best album openers ever
No Me No You - Is this what happens if you mix Prog rock and Punk Rock, so incredably different
Black Light Machine - Magnificent and Bombastic
Milliontown - There is a bit of almost everything in here, 26 miniuts of magic

And the other tracks are very good too!

Great stuff there!

I'm listening to one of the new songs right now and it's GREAT!! Really! Maybe even more prog (in some way) than what's on Milliontown!

New songs:
Afraid Of Summer (with a woman on vocals, sounds good! Who is it Jem? ;))
BIGsmall (nice song)
The Man With The 2.4 (If you think that title sounds strange, you should listen to the song, soooo funny "nice man".)
Wedding Day (haven't listened to this one)
Within Without (same here)

I have also heard the first three songs and I can imagine that they didn't make it to the album 'Milliontown'. The first song indeed is nice, but I find the tracks on the album way better.

I'll say "hi" to John M (and the rest) from The Shattered Room, OK?

Also, Paul Tippett, the artwork designer for Kino AND Frost* will be there too! Finally I get the oppertunity to get my CDs signed by the artworkdesigner too! 8)

That's cool JJ II.
Yeah, they are really nice people.
But sh*t... are all those Englishmen so terribly short? I mean, I am very small, but I was taller or at least as tall as the Frosties.

Quote from: http://www.frost-music.com/board/viewtopic.php?p=3153&highlight=#3153
Dear all, there’s no easy way to tell you this so….

It is with great regret that I have to announce that Frost* are calling it a day for now.

Increasing time, financial and commitment levels have decreed that I'm no longer able to give Frost* the attention it was starting to require and, as such, I have made the decision to suspend the project indefinitely. With my professional music career entering a new and significantly more demanding phase, the imminent arrival of my second child and the hours in the day being limited to just 24 on this planet, Frost* has had to be the sacrificial lamb or else I’ll die much earlier than I’m planning to.

The remaining 4 gigs will still go ahead as planned.

The remaining T-Shirts will be available via the website shortly. We shall put an announcement up with pictures for all to see. If you’d like to buy one (or four!  ), payment will be via Paypal (just as soon as I’ve set an account up!)

Can I take this public opportunity to thank the other 3 Frosties for all their time, skill and effort - dear little things that they are.

The website will remain up and running.

The View From The Cube will stick around too, but after the final instalment of the tour diary, I won’t be updating it for the foreseeable future. (Unless my Tardis collapses during the winter in which case, there’ll be a full report…)

As and when time allows, I shall be continuing to write and record. If there’s anything worth hearing, you’ll be the first to know. Also, although I will try to be around as much as possible on the forum and MySpace to say “Hello!”, it won’t be as much as it used to be for the time being. Lots to do I’m afraid.

I hope you’ll understand.

Lastly, can I just say a HUGE thank you to you lovely people for being so supportive of the whole Frost* endeavour. We’ve had a total ball and we couldn’t have done a lot of this whole thing without your love, enthusiasm and, most importantly, humour.

You’ve been brilliant. Thank you.

Until then, then.

Pffff, I remember quite well when Jem was boasting about the number of albums he wanted to make with Frost*. Now that he's been on tour with the guys, he's prolly seen that it's actually a HUGE AMOUNT OF WORK :D and that the revenue is not earned as easily as with making an album with the Pop girlies, as he's been used to before....?! Don't want to be harsh here or anything, but this gives me a feeling like he was in a state of "OK, Prog Rock experiment done, successful music-wise, not too much otherwise, so now let's move on".

Though I'm REALLY disappointed, I do understand how difficult these choices can be.
With a wife and kids to take care of and a music career that cannot afford to just kick around a bit doing hobby-projects, I think he's a wise man....

I have a feeling we will here more of him in the future. Though I think chances are that it's on TOTP rather than in The Boerderij,... so to say.

I can imagine that it's quite hard with a family, the band and maybe other stuff. It strikes me as a job where you are, especially when touring, constantly on the move. I too can remember that he didn't want Frost* to be a one-day-fly so this decision, though quite understandable, comes a bit out of the blue. Really unexpected.  :-\

So i can respect his decision but i'm nevertheless a bit sad and hopeful that he will give it a try some day. Miliontown is definitely a work of art.

So, after all, what's all the buzz about "suspending" then? Seems to me like a perfectly normal "release rhythm" or so...

Indeed, but it was Jem giving up and later on changing his mind. So they DID quit.

The new Frost* album will bring Declan Burke to the mic and he will handle the guitars too.
And John Mitchell won't be playing guitar on this one.
Andy Edwards does the drums BUT will also be playing a guitarsolo...
Jem's doing keyboards, guitars, bass and pointless loony dancing.

But no fear: JM will be writing with Jem on his new project: The Accidental! (Sounding somewhat between The Urbane and Keane)

Ahh, do I like it when it says that! :D

I'm just bumping this thread because I stumbled across these two wonderful vids of Jem Godfrey and Declan Burke playing Hyperventilate and Snowman in Jem's studio. Give them a listen, you will be amazed!

Here are the links.

I figured it's about time to bring back the life in this topic, since Experiments In Mass Appeal is on it's way and Frost* is on the road again as the support act of Spock's Beard.

Maybe some of us, at least Iggy and me, have seen (or will see) them this tour, so this is the place to post your comments. I know I enjoyed the gig immensely. The guys put on a great show. You could clearly see they were having fun on stage. But the main thing of course is the music, which was great as well. The new songs really sound superb. Some great guitarplaying by 'our' Johnny, but that's not surprising at all or is it? ;)

Also bought the new cd with a couple of 'pre-release' versions from Experiments In Mass Appeal as well as some other stuff like an acoustic version of Snowman from the previous album and some other outtakes. That'll keep me satisfied until they finally release the new album, somewhere in October. :)

You can listen to 3 new songs here as well: www.myspace.com/planetfrost

I couldn't get hold of the Cd so will have to wait.

The boys were great it's a shame they don't appeal to a wider audience.

I get what you mean but this EP contains 3 tracks that will appear on the new album but the EP tracks are different mixes and in some cases have sections changed/removed you also get video of Snowman and Hyperventilate as done by Jem and Dec, Plus a very special  Frost* report that is probably the best yet.
Went to Islington and Leeds, both gigs were superb, Both bands gave 110% *horns*

Yeah the EP is great! Looking forward to the new album. I'm curious to find out what the differences are between the tracks on this EP and the album. If I remember correctly JM played a beautiful (lenghty) guitarsolo at the end of Experiments In Mass Appeal at the gigs that is not on the EP. Here's hoping they include it on the album...

For me there has to be either melody or edge. E.g. Genesis have a lot of melody and some edge, and Nevermore have a lot of edge and some melody. I can't find much of either in Frost* music, it just sounds bland and machinelike to me. Sorry  :(

News from Frost*:
Frost* Shows Cancelled

We’re sorry to announce that Frost will be unable to play the double headliner shows with Magenta on Friday April 10th at the Boerderij and Saturday April 11th at The Rock Temple.

This is due to the continued inability to find a replacement drummer for Andy.

Jem says, “In truth, there is a guy who I am really keen to have in the band, but he’s on tour with another band during the month that we’re scheduled to play these shows.

As you know, Frost’s music is hardly something that you can teach a chap in a couple of hours and it’s this that is providing us with the problem. Combined with my already very intense dayjob schedule, it’s simply going to be impossible for me to spend February finding a dep, every weekend in March teaching the dep how to play our set back to front only to have to repeat the who teaching procedure again with the new drummer after that.

Obviously, I know you’re thinking, “Why not just keep the dep then?” but if you’ve already found the right girl, metaphorically speaking, you’re hardly going to start snogging her mate shortly before she moves in with you are you? And I believe, with the man in question, I’ve found the right girl. If you see what I mean”

Magenta will still be performing on these dates and there’ll be an announcement shortly as to who will be taking Frost’s place.

Again, sincere apologies to those who were looking forward to seeing the band, we’re very sorry, but hope to catch you out there at some point in the future.

However, Frost would like to reiterate that they WILL performing at RosFest . There’ll be a further announcement about this very shortly.

Apparently Alex (what's in a name  ;D) Thomas is a good friend of Andy Edwards.
It seems that he searched and found his own replacement.

By the looks of it he's good.

But anyone who can play drums and does that better than me, usually is.

Seriously though, I think the new guy is a very good drummer! Indeed a bit jazzy, just like Andy Edwards. I hope he fits in well in the madness that is Frost*!

Funny.

Both you Tom and you Paco talk about Jazzy drummer but when i listen to either Milliontown or EIMA i can't hear any jazz in the drum-work.

How odd.  :-\

No, but Andy IS a jazzy drummer. Take a look at his weblog for example.

Andy himself would tell you that he is much more at home as a jazz drummer. The fact you can't hear that in his playing is an indication of how good he is.

Head over to http://www.myspace.com/planetfrost, there is a new song to be heard!!! It's called 'The Forget You Song' and it's a leftover from the EIMA-sessions I believe!

Yep, you're right.
I've read that this song and a few other songs will be released on an EP later this year.
Don't know if the rumour is true or not.

Ha, funny! I was listening to Pocket Sun on my iPod while I was typing that post, so that got me a bit confused I guess. Of course I meant Wonderland! :D

It's quite good, isn't it? 8)

A large chunk of Black Light Machine live from RoSFest is up as well on www.myspace.com/planetfrost

And this is what Jem said on the Frost*-forum about a live-album release...

Quote
Well, the live album is about 50% finished and sounding jolly good I must say considering it's my first attempt at a live album. There's about 1 hour 45 of material -

Intro
Hyperventilate
The Forget You Song
Falling Down
EIMA
Black Light Machine
Milliontown
Saline
No Me No You
Snowman
The Other Me
Pocket Sun
Wonderland
Dear Dead Days

Obviously only so much of this will fit on a CD so there'll be a limited edition CD for sale at the Dream Theater gigs much like we did with Spock's last year that will have the tracks that don't get on the main live album plus hopefully a couple of other goodies if there's time.

The main CD will also have a 45 minute Frost report on an accompanying DVD. There'll also be 4, possibly 5 extra Frost B-sides like The Forget You Song, 1976, New World and so on and will be available from Inside Out and all the usual places.

So all in all, it should be a properly Frosty summer! :D

Great news or what!? *horns*

I guess he couldn't stand the freezing cold and just wanted out. I can understand that, especially since he's bald...

Here's an update of all things Frost* by Jem on his MySpace blog:

Quote
Well, here we go. Summer's done and off we go once again into the land of cold, dark, ice and frost. So it's not all bad then! Ark ark...

We're currently getting started on finishing the mixes to The Philadelphia Experiment which we hope to have ready for sale by Christmas. The CD will feature as much of the gig as we can fit into 80 minutes. The accompanying DVD will feature the full 105 minute show in WAV format so you can load it onto your i-device and enjoy the whole thing as it happened. There will also be a 42 minute documentary on the DVD that charted the course of our prep for the gig and some other wee treats. So lots of fun to be had if you pick up a copy, which if you did, it would be very lovely of you. Ta.

As of this time, we've also parted company with InsideOut. Our deal was for 2 albums and after a lot of very amicable chats we both decided that our paths lay in different directions going forwards. So as of this moment, Frost is an independent entity although we are looking into some distributions options for the live album. More news on that in due course.

Elsewhere, myself, John Mitchell, Andy Edwards and/or Nathan King are playing a small number of shows in November under the moniker of "An Esoteric Evening With Two J's And An A". We'll be trawling our back catalogues and playing a bunch of stuff that needs to be heard frankly. We're looking to head over to Cardiff and up to Birmingham to play, but the first show we can announce is at The Peel on Nov 7th 2009. Check out http://peelmuzik.webeden.co.uk for more details.

Then in 2010, I'm planning on doing a few solo gigs most likely in the form of support slots for other bands. I've got a lot of mad stuff planned for that and may well have some new faces for you to meet as well...

But what about Frost 3 I hear you saying. Well, not being signed anymore means a lot more than maybe it first appears to the casual thoughtster. The world really is our oyster now and the sky is literally the limit. First off though, I have to move house. I'm leaving East Sussex and heading to Bath, a place I've always loved. Once there, I need to set up a new studio which could take some time and indeed, the whole moving process could take anything up to a year to happen, maybe more. So there's much to be done twixt now and then.

After that though...

Tom

Is it really happening? Is it really going to be? (Is it really going to last?)

This YouTube Frost Report reminded me of eagerly awaiting the release of the EIMA album.
Jem is sooooo funny. I love the little bloke.
Anyone else who cannot wait for Frost* #3?

Yeah, he's funny.

But he's also weird.
Can't make his mind up if he's going to put Frost* on ice or eternal sleep or just make music until the end of (his) time.

I'm glad that he's working on some material again, I really enjoy listening to the first two albums.

Frost* last night at the Scala were amazing. It was a different line up except for Jem and John. The drummer was brilliant. I cant remember the setlist but it included Milliontown and a new song called Fanfare (I think). It was a good performance with lots of laugh. Im looking forward to a new album. *horns*

Ok, here's a confession.

I was a total fanboy when "Milliontown" was released and was looking forward to "Experiments In Mass Appeal". I was pretty active on the Frost message board in the early days and I followed every 'Frost report', which were hilarious by the way.
When EIMA was released I liked it (still being in fanboy mode then), but later on, my initial enthusiasm was tamed a bit, and I haven't listened to EIMA for a long time now. I guess I think "Milliontown" is a better album overall.
Thanks to Jem's on and off attitude towards Frost*, I lost interest in the band. Occasionally I heard some news about the band, but then they disappeared into nothingness and well, the status of the band changed so much, I wouldn't even know...

Anyway, I just listened to the song The Dividing Line on YouTube and thought it was really good. Now, I only have "Milliontown", "Experiments In Mass Appeal" and the "Tour CD" EP. So what exactly am I missing?
I know there have been live albums and what not. But where can I get the new songs? And does anyone know the status of the new album? Is it even going to be released at all?


EDIT:
How many of these non-album songs are there anyway?
The Dividing Line, Heartstrings, The Forget You Song, etc...

The Rockfield files, see a few posts above ;). Seriously: fun to watch and the music is great!

No idea, there are a few new songs on 'The Rockfield Files' (DVD/cd).

I have the live album The Philidelphia Experiment, the song The Dividing Line is on that album (3cd's) and I really like it.
Nick D'Virgilio is playing drums on that album and the intro is so typical Frost*.
Lots of humor in it.
