Just a quick update before I fly back from Austria (it's been great over here playing Miles Davis material with Mike Keneally, keyboardist Adam Holzman, trumpeter Franz Hackl, and drummer Abe Fogle - killer catz!) and launch into a seriously frenetic August:

  1. There's been lots of updates to the details of the August MyKeneally tour appearances. More shows are public than there were before. Check out the calendar on the profile page - we might be near you!
  2. The Steve Vai Live CD/DVD "Where The Wild Things Are" - a document of the 2007 String Theories tour - comes out on 9/29. If you were following me on Twitter you'd have a link to a special secret 7-minute video trailer of the DVD already: www.twitter.com/bryanbeller...
  3. The new Dethklok CD "Dethalbum II" is done. I've heard it. It's fucking brutal beyond belief. I'm on one track, called "The Gears." It comes out in September as well. And there's a tour announcement about 72 hours away, and you're not going to believe who we're playing with. (Some of you already know - I have to wait just a bit longer before an official announcement.) I can tell you that the tour is from October 1 thru November 21 and it's all North America. More soon.
  4. Special gigs coming up: my wife Kira and I in NYC at Rockwood Music Hall on Sun. 8/30 at 5pm...a Beller bass clinic at Bass Specialties in Philly on Sat. 8/29 where I'll show off (for the first time) the new Mike Lull T-Bass I'll be playing on the Dethklok tour...and a new one, a Beller bass clinic on Mon. 8/31 in Fredericksburg, VA at Forte Music, organized by the lovely and talented Brittany Frompovich. I don't get to that part of VA very often, so if you're in DC or central VA, hope to see you there.

Now halfway through the show, and I feel as if I’ve only seen a fraction of what’s new Lots in the world of featherweight, Class D amp heads, tons of cool new basses, a few new strings, effects, and accessories.

First, it's come to my attention that the kind folks at Bass Player Magazine have launched a new website (www.bassplayer.com), and as part of it they're posting blogs by their writers. So some of the stuff I write here will end up over there. If you're reading this at the BP site already, well, hello!
