Ya but its just a single, if it was "Full Circle" the album than thursday would be cooler for a release date. Metallica's "Death Magnetic" album was released on a Friday worldwide so everyone could get the album at the same time. Anyone thought that maybe the 23rd release date was for Australia? US could be 21st? where is Lex when you need him????

Re: The Official Creed Press/TV Thread
 
He sent me a PM this morning but didnt address the single matter cuz i didnt ask him in my message a few days ago. I just sent him a message asking for confirmation on that date and he didnt reply lol cuz he isnt online

oh and regarding the metallica thing, i had signed up on mission metallica and preordered the album. the week it came out i was all psyched for friday. tuesday i came home and there was a package from warner bros in the mail, i thought "thats weird" so i opened it and it was my copy of DEATH MAGNETIC!!!!! haha i was so stoked

I remember the day I picked up Death Magnetic, Hurricane Ike blew through Houston so I couldnt listen to the album while my power was out..I was beyond Pissed...

I wish we could know something else. I don't believe we'll hear the single next week but who knows, maybe it's soon. Hope Lex comes here soon!

Im just downloading the interview now I will post a link in a few hours. The Website is crap same with VH1's no information whatsoever. Unsure if 23rd is our time or yours.

Maz (The interviewer) asked Scott so when will we hear the new song. He said 23rd in 10 days or so same with the cincinatti radio interview. That might just be played on the radio not sure confirmation would be nice.

we got the Green Day single same time as you. That was a Friday our time Singles don't normally come out til Sat here either. So it has happened before

Re: The Official Creed Press/TV Thread
 
Same but I would like something offical.

I found this article it says Album release date is 25 August 2009 again nothing offical so I am cautious but here it is anyway:

Just got the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine. Creed has a full page promotion of the tour on the inside on page 86. Gives website info to get tickets and the VIP packages.

So now it looks like Creed is starting to get more attention in the media. At least Rolling Stone subscribers (and I know there are a lot of them) will know now about Creed's reunion :D

Creed is back, really

by Ray Waddell - Jul. 23, 2009 09:10 AM
Billboard


Music fans love reunions. Big bucks can flow when bands reconvene, from the Police who got back together in 2007 after more than 20 years apart - and earned more than $350 million, according to Billboard Boxscore - to this year's sold-out Phish reunion. Absence, after all, makes the heart grow fonder. But has Creed, a band whose commercial success hasn't come without its fair share of drama, both real and imagined, been gone long enough to inspire this kind of nostalgia? Creed announced in April that all four of its original members - Scott Stapp, Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips and Brian Marshall - are back together for a summer tour and a new album on Wind-up, "Full Circle," to be released this fall. On paper, the band looks ripe for a reunion: Creed's 1997 debut, "My Own Prison," sold more than 6 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The follow-up, 1999's "Human Clay," was certified diamond for sales in excess of 10 million copies, according to the RIAA. Creed's last studio album, 2001's "Weathered," sold 6 million-plus. A 2004 "Greatest Hits" package has sold 2 million copies.
Creed also stood out as a touring act. Between November 1997 though the end of 2002 the band reported more than $70 million in grosses and 2 million tickets sold from 220 shows, according to Billboard Boxscore. When it split, even amid controversy and rumored turmoil within the band, Creed was still more than viable commercially.

But despite all this, the band is only starting to see traction on its latest efforts. The tour, the band's first in seven years, begins Aug. 6 in Pittsburgh, and ticket sales have ranged from "mixed" to "disaster," depending on whom one speaks to and, to be fair, depending on whether one is involved in the tour. It is safe to say the trek is not an out-of-the-gate home run. Has Creed been gone long enough for fans to miss it?

"We, frankly, came up to pretty erratic sales, a real mixed bag," says Creed manager Paul Geary of AGP Management. "We sold way more tickets right out of the box in some markets, and in other markets it was, Whoa, what went wrong here?' "

Once the band starts making media appearances and an impact at radio, it is conceivable for Creed to see a resurgence. The band's commercial clout during its peak was undeniable. That, of course, is one positive, both for the tour and the album. "I'm glad that we kind of went out without failures," Tremonti says. "We went out leaving some meat on the bone so people would want more later on, which I'm thankful for."

Gregg Wattenberg, chief creative officer for Wind-up, which has always been Creed's label home, calls the new album "challenging, but I would say every record I work on seems to have its challenges, so it's nothing I haven't seen before."

Having this sort of track record gives Creed a leg up, Wattenberg says, but in the end it comes down to the songs. The title single to "Full Circle" will be worked the third week of July. "These artists that come back with a lot of hype and expectation, if the song delivers it just opens all the doors that need to be opened," he says. "If the song doesn't deliver, it's an uphill battle. I told the guys, Let's keep it squarely focused on one song at a time. All the other stuff is going to follow if we take care of that.' "

When Creed split, the band was already feeling a backlash from both the media and some music fans, not uncommon for acts that experience such a rapid rise to the top. "I think when we parted ways it was kind of a good time to let people step away from Creed for a bit, once we saturated the airwaves the way we did, " Tremonti says. "It sort of seems the world has a way of building artists up, and once it reaches a certain level, when you're no longer the underdog, people sort of stop rooting for you. So it's nice to kind of step back and start fresh again."

Post-Creed efforts by band members have not scaled the heights they experienced together. But it hasn't been dismal, either, especially by today's standards. Tremonti, Phillips and Marshall launched Alter Bridge with Myles Kennedy on vocals and rhythm guitar. Alter Bridge's 2004 debut, "One Day Remains," sold more than 500,000 copies in the United States, according to SoundScan, and its 2007 sophomore release, "Blackbird," sold about half that number. Stapp's 2005 solo album, "The Great Divide," sold 394,000 in the States.

It is unfair to gauge a tour's success until Boxscore reports start coming in, but no press releases about quick sellouts have appeared about the Creed reunion, booked by veteran Creed/Alter Bridge agent Ken Fermaglich at the Agency Group. "I think they've been missed all along by a certain segment of the population," Geary says. "What's gone wrong here is not so much that they have not been greeted with open arms, more so they've been underpromoted."

Geary admits the launch left a little to be desired in terms of creating buzz. Without an album at radio and the "40,000-foot look" that national TV exposure provides, "where the band comes out after seven years for the first time, looking great performing some of their biggest hits and reminding people of why they were so big," they were limited. "Frankly, I'm amazed at how well we've done without anything," Geary says. "We basically just went on sale with surgical strikes; in each market that we went on sale we had a marketing spend, you buy print and radio and some television locally to support the tour."

Later the band nailed down a June 26 "Fox & Friends" TV appearance, and it has at least two other TV appearances in the works, according to Geary. Hopes are high that that exposure, along with a big single and an invigorated marketing push from Live Nation, which is promoting the bulk of the dates, will provide the juice to the tour.

"Live Nation agree and we agree that the launch had its shortcomings," Geary says, "but we're back with that now and we're onboard, and I feel really positive we'll have a big success in the end, now that we have a major budget put toward reaching the people."

It doesn't help that Creed wasn't the critics' darling, despite its commercial success. "Creed's never been popular with the print media," Geary says, adding, "I have to tell you that middle America, Joe Work Boot, loves this band. These songs strike a chord for so many people, evidenced by selling 35 million records and their touring being as significant as it was."

At first, Creed considered reuniting for just a tour and not make a new album. "We got together planning on just doing a tour," Tremonti says. "Then, after a few meetings, we just decided if we're going to do this, let's do it right, go 100 percent and do what we've always done: support a tour with an album and single and go out there and give it all we've got."

While the writing for "Full Circle" took place in five or six weeks, according to Tremonti, "some of these ideas have been worked on for years, so it's not like all of this stuff is coming out of thin air."

This time, Creed was able to recapture its chemistry "fairly quickly," Tremonti says. The title track "was pretty much one of the first ideas we started fiddling around with. I think that song was what broke the ice."

When the band first got together to play at Stapp's home studio, it didn't quite know how to get started, Stapp says. "So I said, 'Let's just go back to the beginning.' We played My Own Prison' and it was like we hadn't missed a beat. In fact, we played it better than ever, and we hadn't jammed together in years."

Whether it all falls into place with a blockbuster tour and a hit album, for his part, Stapp is ready to reconnect with Creed's audience from the stage. "The one thing we like to pride ourselves in is playing these songs better live than we do on record," he says. "We only know one way to do it and that's from the heart. I believe everybody who comes to those shows is going to feel it."

^^^^So they realize that not being in the spotlight and no new muisc has caused poor tickets sales?? SHOCKER!! I want the tour/album to be a success as much as anyone else, I just think they have to rebulid their fan base.

Re: The Official Creed Press/TV Thread
 
Has anyone else realised in a recent interview Stapp said the single would be here on the 23rd of July?

I just woke up today and i'm like... "Hmmm when will we be getting new Creed stuff" and then I finally realised the 23rd was yesterday...

They also just might not be the draw that they once were. Seems like nobody in the Creed camp considered this before going ahead with the reunion.

Okay..this is ridiculous. Its time to put some pressure on Wind-up or whoever is responsible for making us wait so long. Fucking email the shit out of them. Im tired of waiting for new music, its been nearly nine years. At this point, Creed deserves any bad press they get and the poor concert sales. Usually I defend creed but they're treating their fans like shit. I'm done.

Agreed... I just want a single, or atleast a confirmed released for a single, i'm sick of Scott or Mark saying "oh it'll be here on the (insert false date here)"

Re: The Official Creed Press/TV Thread
 
Ya everyone needs to calm down, I want new music just as bad as anyone else but atleast we are getting new music, Creed originally planned on just a tour and not an album. Lets not rush perfection! I think we will get more album/single news next week as the tour gets underway.

Re: The Official Creed Press/TV Thread
 
^^^Couple of points from that interview:

Scott mentioned new single in couple of days??? Well we need to get that single by Thursday or its going to be all over the internet on someones camera phone like Scott said!

Glad to see Scott have alot respect for Myles. I could have seen Myles and Scott getting jealous over who gets the rest of the guys and when after the tour lol. Sounds like Creed and AB can co-exsist. Although we will see, Scott sounds like Creed are where the guys want to be full time, or just Scott.

well I flew over from aus. IM putting new songs on the net. I will still buy them when they come out

XALTERBRIDGEX 08-03-2009 07:35 PM

Re: The Official Creed Press/TV Thread
 
The band know the songs are going to be on Youtube but sounds like they want to have the single out on or before the tour starts Thursday, it would be the right way to do things I think.

Dark_Knight 08-03-2009 08:45 PM

Re: The Official Creed Press/TV Thread
 
You would think they would send it to radio tomorrow...since it's a Tuesday. Time to pray haha

XALTERBRIDGEX 08-03-2009 09:01 PM

Re: The Official Creed Press/TV Thread
 
since there was no announcement for a release tomm, I doubt its tomm. My money is on a special Thursday release, and we will hear somthing tomm or wed. LET US PRAY!

Dark_Knight 08-03-2009 10:15 PM

Re: The Official Creed Press/TV Thread
 
I meant just them sending it out to radio, not announcing it just yet...I'm sure they have to get it in advance anyway, but like you said though it could be announced on a Thursday or maybe even Friday when the tour starts.

BSC 08-04-2009 04:47 AM

Re: The Official Creed Press/TV Thread
 
Atleast we get a good quality version of the single...

Do you know how many awful videos of that song live we'll get on youtube?
