    He is really hurting the band by not putting the new album out and they should just release the new album and start working on a followup album. Tour for the new album when possible. Extreme has only five studio albums and releasing a sixth album and working on album number seven isn't a bad idea for them. So put the new album out this year tour a little for it and in 2023. Work on and record a seventh album and put that out in 2025. Nuno has solo stuff coming out in between. The longer they shelve the new album it doesn't work in their favor.
    Thanks for sharing those!

    I just realized--not only Extreme--but Gary hasn't even released music almost 10 years, which is by far his longest stretch. That was Hurtsmile's "Retrogrenade" in '14 and they didn't even tour (or mini-tour) in support of that one. And he's usually relatively active with other projects.

    Well, except a Kanye West cover and this song:

    He did record this in 2018...

    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    At this point the whole band of Extreme should be put on a milk carton as missing. Quake is a good song I think it's only on the vinyl release.

    edit: just checked they never even released the vinyl version of the album. it was announced but never released for some reason. I would have bought it. so Quake is only available digitally it's not on the CD.

    More tour dates added. It says 2023, so at least the band isn't breaking up! A rock cruise.

    As for the new album they have ready to be released is putting out albums in Japan even a thing for them anymore? They are pretty popular in Japan always have been. With every new Extreme record there was always some kind of Japanese exclusive. For their last album it was cause I have it an HMV exclusive CD with a sticker. The Japanese releases are always superior to USA pressings, love em. For WFTP there was a sticker version and fold out poster and bonus track Fair-Weather Faith. III Sides the sticker and extra 3 inch Don't Leave Me Alone CD. Pornograffitti I don't think has anything special with the exclusive. Their debut album a different cover. Their Pornografftti live tour a CD with an exclusive cover. The limited edition vinyl cover CD's from early 2010's that were super cool of four of their albums. I have most or all of that shit I listed. So yeah there has been many Extreme goodies coming out of Japan including Nuno's stuff away from Extreme which had exclusives with a bonus track. Might be a good starting point for them in putting the new album out it has been the trend almost with every Extreme album or Nuno related thing to see a Japan exclusive release first. Make them import it.

    There is weird stuff going on in Extreme. The record has been 'done' for 4-5 years now...ready to be released. Then the band is breaking up and Nuno has material ready to go (assuming he referenced the Extreme CD)...but they're touring. Why not release it?? I mean, for the love of god - I know there isn't much $ in releasing new music in today's world - but surly it's got to be better financially to release something; they know they're going to get some sales - which would (help) offset any costs associated w/ the recording process.

    Which is why I brought up the Japan market usually Extreme drops a new record in that market. If it's about finding a record label, etc which Nuno said in interviews they are a bigger band in Japan so they should drop the new album there and let fans import the CD, Vinyl versions. It's an Extreme tradition anyway to drop a new album in Japan. They shouldn't have any problem getting signed in Japan.

    Definitely like you said weird stuff going on with the Extreme camp other than they are touring or want to tour (covid shit lately). It's really odd for a band to have an album ready for release and shelve it like they have for this long. I do hope they drop this new album sometime this year. At this point they should already be planning a quick followup album to expand their studio catalogue. However that's not how it works in the Extreme camp. They trend has been a new studio album every 15+ years, lol, and .

    Put the record out guys, life is to short to take yourselves that seriously.

    Maybe they just don't think it's worth the hassle to release it.. probably won't make anything off it, it won't get radio play. Only the 45+ die hard crowd will even care

    If that is the case than what do they have to lose buy just throwing it up on iTunes Music or some streaming service without a label or as a Japan exclusive CD/Vinyl version. Nuno has this weird thing going where he wants the record released with a live tour so they can play it to the fans, etc stating Extreme is a live band, etc. I disagree only the 45+ die hard crowd will care they have more fans than just 40 year olds. Anyway you can't make new fans if you don't release new music. Extreme's last studio album released in 2008 and prior to that 1995. If they have no fans it's because they aren't giving them any new material to care about.

    I want them to release an album. I want them to tour. That said they likely know that they are what they are. A somewhat successful late 80's early 90's band and are now likely relugated to doing shows here and there. I am assuming that their "day" jobs are able to sustain their current lifestyle. I mean they have not released new music in over 10 years and they are not on the street. Nuno obvioulsy has worked for Rhianna but Pat and Gary are liking able to put food on the table.

    They likely have the same amount of fans today then they did when I saw them 10 years ago in Buffalo. I admit that with me being selfish I want 10 albums. However to those people posting in a sub thread of a sub threat on a VH message board, we are not the typical Extreme fan. They know if they put something out, we will buy it. All 10k of us. its their product and I will simply think that they figured if they waited this long, they can wait a little longer.

    I do wonder how setup financially a guy like Gary is. Assuming he has a normalish dude lifestyle, gotta imagine he's made enough to never have to work again.

    I had a guy that looked exactly like Gary help me at McDonalds today. I complained about the burger being cold and he told me to get the funk out.

    joking.

    Their finances are really none of our business but they are celebrities and of course people will be curious and nosey. Obviously Nuno touring with Rihanna helped pay for his LA home. Pat has that alpaca farm, Kfigg is a drum teacher. As for Gary who knows but none of them have been spotted homeless yet despite not releasing a new album with Extreme in over a decade and a half. As for the new album yeah it likely won't do Pornograffitti numbers or get any kind of airplay or what not. Same with Nuno's solo stuff he said he would release just like 10,000 people will care like with the new Extreme album. Of course putting out new material and touring increases your number of fans. Extreme only tours here and there but the lack of new material is not going to win them any new fans for sure.
