Us? Well, we’ve all been busy doing our own thing for a while, but we have had this sense of unfinished business. Ever had that gnawing feeling in your mind that lets you know that there is something you have to say or to do? We did too, and that’s why we’ve decided to pick back up where we left off, clear the cobwebs, blow the dust off our music and get things rocking again.
We’re coming back together to play some of our classic set, but also begin recording a whole new album of material. Luckily we had a pretty good start when we put things down, but things are even more clear after some time away.
So there it is! Delusionist is resurrected! We didn’t know if this would happen, but we’re glad it is. We’re looking forward to sharing some of the new music we have in the pipeline and to playing out with other local Denver bands in the near future.
With our powers combined, we are Captain Delusionist! Delusionists Assemble! Delusionites form of thrash metal!
Er… whatever rally cry or slogan you may prefer, we’re back!
Although we discussed how we wouldn’t do this, and it’s likely no one will notice, I feel compelled to give it some sort of finality. So it’s with no satisfaction that I announce Delusionist is no more. Although it’s not impossible this project may be revived in the future, for now it’s done.
Somehow no matter how inevitable it may be, it still feels strange when a project comes to a conclusion. I don’t think any group of musicians really want to focus on the end because we all want to believe that a project has the potential to go all the way. It’s why musicians do what they do and commit so much time and energy over and over again. However, in the back of our minds we all secretly acknowledge that at some point it will be done. Maybe that’s how it should be, maybe every project needs an end so we can devote the proper energy to some shared goal and then move on.
