It's a world where we don't TRY to be rock stars, we simply ARE rock stars. We're just not famous. Or rich. And we don't trash hotel rooms (yet), so we're still a relatively safe bet for your yard party or festival—in a loud, über-present, over-the-top concert performance sort of way. A way that we think rock fans really appreciate. Like blending the on-stage raucousness of David Lee Roth in his prime with the guitar wizardry of Jimmy Page, sprinkling in the flamboyance of P-Funk, adding a generous splash of requisite tongue-in-cheek cockiness and two handfuls of sequins, and pouring it all in a big glass with some Jack Daniels. Or almond milk, it's your deal. Can we strike a rock-star pose to that song? Grind our voices to gravel by the end of it? Shred our fingertips? Push our personal abilities and simultaneously pout like Poison? Twirl around on the stage and almost lose balance? Yes? Then that song is definitely on our show set list.
Maybe WP4$ has tapped into the Zen of rock music, although we would never call ourselves masters. Better that we are old souls of rock and roll, young at heart and clever in mind, but never too brazen to learn and grow, to delve into new territory traveled by the musicians who have gone before us, and to write new songs inspired by those masters. Put the tunes on a CD, mash up some cover art, call the album something crazy like Not For Sale, and sell it for $3.33. Or work up our second album that's shaking up the music scene. Folks, let me tell you, it will absolutely transport you to rock and roll bliss--in a frickin' limousine. It's called Ante Up, All In, Cash Out, Make It A Double. And doesn't that just make you LOL and start obsessing over what kind of crazy rock and roll music is on that disc as you slap down a credit card for a measly ten bucks. (UPDATE: We have sold out of physical copies of Ante Up, but you can order CDs and downloads on CDBaby.)
And that's not the end of our rock star road, oh no. We've got more creativity and fire in us, so get ready for another innovative production! How far will we go? Here's how far: we thought it would be a kick in the pants to do a "concept" album, so one of our BlipsWerx producers wrote a full-length screenplay and we're writing songs based on the script! It's a crazy-cool story about how humans should probably get together instead of fighting. But hey, we like the idea of lalalala-love! We will let you know as we get through pre-production into mixing and manufacturing. And yes, we have a title for the album . . . but ain't telling yet!
Is it gonna top our last CD? Well, since you asked, we will answer with all of the humbleness of a yoga instructor: Yeah, this one will blow your effing mind, baby. (Okay, if the yoga instructor was Mick Jagger.) WORD: be ready for an epic concept album that will have you dancing, singing, crying, laughing, wondering, wandering, and, quite possibly, willfully working toward a better you, a better world.
