Mia & I recently sat down with the folks from the BuzzCutz this week for an informal chat/interview about life, music, etc ;) Check out the mp3 file attached to this entry to listen to the podcast episode which also features a sneak peek of "Cemetery Gates", one of the songs from the upcoming CD.
We're excited, and even though the song isn't completely finished yet, you get a good idea of how things are coming along ... PLUS this is the world premier of Brandon Hensley's drumming on this single. So you gotta listen... and leave some love in the comments for Brando..
If you would like to be able to listen to the CD as it nears completion, and get minute by minute details -- check out gretchenland.com/ritual for the latest info on the progress. This link below point's to a progress blog for now, and alter will be a splash page for the CD.

So what do you think? What Cover Song Should we do?
The band is in the studio right now working on 14 new songs for our upcoming CD "Ritual". There has been some discussion about possibly including a cover song on the disc, and while we've got a few ideas ourselves we thought that it would be cool to see what you guys think. We've always included a cover in our shows and as you know we did "White Wedding" on our first CD...
Previously we did "White Wedding"
SO Basically we are open to just about anything, but here are some general guidelines...
· Genre doesn't matter, though we are looking for something that can be rocked up.
· The song probably doesn't need to be something that has already been done by a female artist. (The whole point is to change it up, right?)
· We'd prefer it be an older song.
· A well known song is better than obscure (so we are looking ideally for something that's already been a hit on radio once ;)
· Lyrical content needs to be CLEAN, --- so that means we're not going to rock out to the "lemon song" by Zep (though we've played Rock-n-Roll before) So kinda keep that in mind too ;) · No instrumentals
