Can Crowdfunding Deliver a New deadhorse Album?
"Myself, I wanted to get back to the two-minute song format," he says. "I'm not working on getting out commercial product that's long enough to get on radio. I'm not interested in that. I'm interested in getting great songs that blast people's heads off.
"That's what Horsecore was kind of all about: It was raw," he continued. "That's really why I kind of want to put out Horsecore II, to bring people back to that roots kind of thing."
Price says that he has big plans for the end of the year that he's not quite ready to discuss yet, but it's clear that he's more than ready to get the 'horse back up to a full gallop. Getting their first new album out in over 20 years would certainly go a long way toward achieving that goal, and the band is working hard to get it happening. At Saturday's show, Price will be auctioning off a bass used during the band's performance to help fund the record.
Whether the Kickstarter succeeds or not, though, the bassist is adamant that fans will receive the goodies they paid for -- and that the 'horse will be heard from again.
"With deadhorse, we've promised our fans things in the past, and it didn't happen," he says. "Since we got back together, that's been my goal: to never, ever do that again."
