    Here is the message, Alex Band has written on the message board at www.alexmaxband.com in February '09:

    Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been around but things have been crazy recently, both personally and professionally. I've been fighting to the death to get everything together to release this album and I'm happy to say that with the help of private investors and a partnership with a new independent label we are ready to go! The first step will be a first single release to radio in the US only, which will coincide with a full US tour to support it. We need to break this record domestically before we go global. I wish we could do the whole world all at once but it just isn't possible. I will let you all know the details of which song the first single will be and when exactly we will be taking it to radio. The album release date will be contingent on how the first single does and how long it takes to do what it does...if that makes sense;) But bottom line is both the first single and album will be out this year soon enough and I will touring again. As soon as possible after we've secured the US we will take our tour and the single to Europe and Asia and South America. I wish I had an exact time, but there are too many variables to know now. The good news is I can finally move forward, and in a way where a major label can't hold me back or ruin my chances of success. It took forever to get to this point, but it will be very much worth the wait.
    All you Brazilians should know that the duet with Marjorie of the song Arms and I wrote IS happening and I plan on coming there soon to finish working on the track, do press, and shoot a video. I am just waiting on our schedules to mesh right.
    And regarding the DVD, it is almost completely finished and turning out amazingly, but we have yet to decide the right course of action to take with it's release. As soon as I have more info I will let you all know.
    We will be attacking all avenues of entertainment to help support the release of the single and have many great things in the works...and of course we'll need all of your help the most! So as soon as everything is in place I will bring you all into our plan of attack. Again I am so sorry for the ridiculous delay of getting this album out, if you all only knew the bullshit I have been through! Thank you for sticking with me, I do this all for you. Talk to you soon. All the love...

  • New Message from Alex Band

    18 Jun 2008, 19:41 by Senga77

    There is a new message from Alex Band about the upcoming Brazil Tour and more!

    I'm off to Brazil! It's been waaaaaay too long and I am so excited to be coming back! Thank you all for supporting this tour and helping promote it! I wanted to let you all know that I've made a NEW EP CD that I will be selling at all the Brazil shows (you can also buy it at alexmaxband.com). This new EP has one new song in place of "Coming Home" called "Here With You I'm Found". It's a beautiful acoustic ballad that I think you will all enjoy. And remember all you Brazilian fans, I am going to do my best and stay after each show I play there to sign for everyone who buys an EP. And of course if you already have one just bring it to the show and I will do the same for you:) Also, we will be having a free giveaway of a signed EP and photo with me for one person per show. Just write your email address when you come in and you'll be automatically entered in the drawing! The band and I have prepared a really awesome show for you all with lots of Calling favorites and many new songs...the longest set I have ever played! AND...I am bringing my friend and video director Jethro with me to video the ENTIRE tour. We will also be professionally recording one of the shows with the help of a local production team to create a LIVE DVD! The DVD will have a full live show, interviews, fan participation, crazy backstage footage, life on the road and more! I'm hoping to have it all done and ready for you guys by the Holidays!

    Besides getting ready for this Brazilian tour, I have also been working hard to put together my very own record label and figure out all the intricacies involved with releasing my first solo album without the direct help (or hindrance!) of a major label. Everything is coming along great and I'm doing my best to speed up the process as much as I can. I did pass the first major hurdle which took quite some time which has allowed me to now say that I am 100% officially free of Universal Records/Geffen and I OWN my whole album (this was not an easy task!). Many exciting things in the works! I'll be checking in with you all again soon. But for now, I'm off to Brazil for a wild ride! And I will return with the first Tour Diary entry in many years!!! All the love...
