Earlier this year, Toad released “All I Want,” a collection of fan favorites that the band has reimagined and re-recorded.
In a statement posted on their website, the band said, “Like most bands who recorded for major labels, we didn’t actually own many of the recordings we did during that time. ‘All You Want’ is us reclaiming our past for ourselves. While making this album, we got to look under the hood at the parts we’d written so long ago, pull apart some of the magic of the originals, and in some cases, update arrangements, tempos, or attitudes that we thought we could improve upon with the benefit of a little hindsight.”
The album, “All You Want,” is available for purchase through the band’s website, toadthewetsprocket.com, or at one of their concerts.
Toad’s been out on tour over the summer, with a few dates still to go on the east and west coasts. While on tour, they’ve mentioned the possibility of a new album in 2012, and have played a couple new songs. A few of those songs have ended up on YouTube. Check ‘em out — they sound great!
