Randy Ellefson to Issue New Album July 31; Mp3s and New Website Available
Hard rock instrumental guitarist Randy Ellefson will release his second album, Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid, on July 31, 2007. The first single, “Blue Sky,” is now available as a free download. He has also released a new website, www.randyellefson.com, with streaming audio and a free Demo Club membership allowing more mp3s, videos, guitar tablature, and other items.
“This album sounds much better than the first and is more straightforward rock and metal,” said Ellefson, who also produced and co-engineered the effort. Drummer Jeff Moos, formerly of Mercury Rising, and session bassist Dave DeMarco have contributed to the album, producing a tight performance that would do early Metallica proud on tracks like “Pitter Patter” and “Mantra Dreamscape”.
“Even my hard driving songs tend to pump people up,” remarks Ellefson, “and I often write major key, upbeat stuff. I just like fun music and that’s what I write.”
The track listing of ten songs includes: “Better Things To Do”, “A Trill A Minute”, “Blue Sky”, “The Waltz”, “Everlast”, “Just Passing Through”, “The Key”, “Pitter Patter”, “Mantra Dreamscape”, and “Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid”.
In addition to the new single, Ellefson has revamped his official site, www.randyellefson.com, adding among other things a flash media player where more songs from the new album can be heard in their entirety. Visitors who join the free Demo Club can also download another song from the album, “The Key”, plus a demo version of a song from the next album, “Crunch Time”, with more features to be added regularly. Demo Club members can also access more music from the first album, videos, guitar lessons, and tablature of songs.
Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid will be available online July 31 from randyellefson.com, CDBaby.com, Amazon.com, and Guitar9.com.
