NEWS SOURCE: Bride, a report
April 10, 2009

Bride Recently, Bride released details on how fans can get involved in the recording of what will most likely be the band's final studio album. The album, tentatively titled Tsar Bomba (which means "Mother Of All Bombs"... let's hope it doesn't critically live up to that title!), should be ready for the fans by this Summer. The band writes (from two recent reports combined)...

Bride will be in the recording studio working on a new project starting in late April. Without a major label to finance the project, we must come up with the money on our own. An idea we would like to pursue is a Fan Financed Album. What this means is that you will help us finance our new project.

This is how it will work:

- Donate $20 or more to Bride to help finance the new project and we will get you a signed copy of the release when it becomes available.

- We will also email you links to places where we will post pre-production "rough" recordings of the songs so you can listen to the project as it is happening. This will also allow you to send us email comments and participate in the production of the next Bride release.

- The project will not be completed and pressed (in CDs) until sometime in late June or early July. We're sorry for this delay, but that is how long the process takes. If you choose to help us, you should receive your copy in this time frame, but we will keep you posted via the Web site as to the progress we are making.

It is a pretty simple process. Basically, you are buying your CD in advance, which will help us produce a better product.

We accept Paypal or US money orders.

Troy and Dale have been writing songs for the past few months together. This upcoming project may very well be Bride's last endeavor. Back in 1985 when Bride first was formed Dale and Troy never imagined that the band would still be viable after over twenty years of music making. Bride has had incredible opportunities to write record and release songs world wide while also touring to support every release. This 2009 project is a no hold barred when it comes to creativity and music making. This labor of love should take the listener beyond any imaginative work Bride has ever done in the past and challenge the audio senses.

It is important concerning this work tentatively titled "Tsar Bomba" to capture the listener and to unpredictably throw them into the vat of mechanosensation.

Tsar Bomba simply means Mother Of All Bombs and was the largest most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated. It is important for this work to leave such an impact. Even though some would argue that a Christian CD should have nothing to do with such destruction, it is our belief that in this day and time a certain amount of destruction leads way to new growth and a fresh start.

Back with the Thompson brothers is drummer Jerry McBroom. It is only fitting that the most popular drummer in Bride's history rejoins them for the finale. G.W. Watts notoriously known for his Hong Kong sessions will be contributing bass guitar. Also returning will be the guitar virtuoso Steve Osborne.

One of the most exciting aspects to the new work is the studio master Tim Bushong. Tim will be exercising all of his recording talents to the project.

Expect to hear raw rock, heavy metal, and all of the surprises that make you smile when you hear a Bride release.
