    Default Create your (realistic) ADKOT follow-up 12 song album wish list

    If by the grace of music gods these guys decide to put out another album (current line-up), I’m guessing they’d do a follow-up to ADKOT, using some (or all) of the remaining songs they managed to put together a few years back and perhaps even already have in the can (for a variety of reasons we all know).

    Since I don’t think any of us know what other songs were re-hashed for the ADKOT sessions, I wanted to create a 12 song wishlist for the next album. Keeping it realistic by assuming the other songs they did or would do are re-worked demos or riffs, with 2-3 new songs. Even when the boys are not on good terms or just spitting something out, I feel like they can hammer out two new songs (see: the Best of Vol 1 and ADKOT)

    There would probably be a bunch of title changes, especially for some songs that are ripe for lyrical updating, like Honolulu Baby (that one is right in 2015 Dave's wheelhouse). But, here’s my personal 12:

    1. Peace of Mind
    2. Eyes in the Night
    3. <new song>
    4. Babe Don’t Leave Me Alone (first single)
    5. Light in the Sky
    6. We Die Bold
    7. (Here's) Just What You Wanted
    8. Get the Show on the Road
    9. <new song>
    10. <cover they’ve never done before>
    11. Honolulu Baby
    12. Angel Eyes

    Yeah -- I was kinda trying to stay away from songs already used in some capacity or another (though I may have inadvertently put one in that has an intro or solo elsewhere)

    Throw in a new Ed instrumental in there somewhere, and you've got perfection.

    Yeah, I'm with the new song lot.

    I barely or don't even know some of the Zero/WB Demo tracks by name, I listened to them a couple times out of curiosity, but they never excited my ears too much. One reason that I can forgive a lot of the tracks on ADKOT more than some, I suppose. I never had much of a prior connection to them.

    Whatever they wanna release, if it ever happens, is cool. Of course brande new stuff would be preferable. Would be interesting to see what they come up with now. Could go either way, but with the way they're playing and considering that some of Dave's best lyrics are on ADKOT, I'd be guardedly optimistic.

    I don`t expect anyone to agree with me (well maybe a few) but technically anything they put out weather is was written in 1976 or 2016 would be a new song seeing as it was never officially released by the band before. I know that does`t jive with the hardcore fan but just saying

    I agree, 51501984! If hasn't been released officially, it doesn't count to me either.

    They're not going to make another album of rehashed demos or new material as Dave and Eddie haven't written songs together since the 1980's.
