2023 Thread Discussion

Hey guys, not too late to wish you guys Happy New Year right?

Anyway, what are you hoping to see from Lifehouse, ØZWALD and Jason this year?

ØZWALD gonna release an album this year. Definitely looking forward to that. After their Future Wars EP, I’m excited to see what sound they gonna explore next.

Also, I really wish to see Jason next album to release this year too. Especially after he said that there will be new versions of Butterfly and Eighties. And also hoping to see another demo album too.

While for Lifehouse? I don’t know if they are still active anymore but it’d be a pleasant surprise to see if they release another EP like Goodbye Kanan.

Happy new year Snowfist et al.!! Hope you all had some time to rest or treat yourselves well over the last few weeks.

I think 2023 will be a good year in the JW/OZ/SS camp. Definitely expecting Garden of the Sun to come out, as well as Jay’s next solo record. Lifehouse I don’t really expect since Goodbye Kanan is so old — they said it predates Ozwald and I was under the impression Jason wrote and recorded much of it with Winnie in 2017. I remember him saying that after sessions for “another project”, they would go late at night and record Winzlo for fun, so that would put it in early ‘17 if GK was that project. In my mind LH has been inactive for about five years so who knows.

Future Wars was my favourite set of songs from Ozwald (along with Sweet Delirium) so hoping for more of that. Their music has really grown on me lately though — find myself putting on Artificial Odyssey more and more, and Young Suburban Minds lives in my car CD player a lot of the time too. Fingers crossed for more goodness!

J recording old music is interesting, especially that clip of Wash. Who knows what’ll happen… I fully expect this year to have a lot of solo stuff which I’m really excited for :slight_smile:

I finally have gotten this rare gem!
It’s the pre-releaee special collectors edition
And the price is kinda reasonable for how rare it is
The cost of this was 96$

I still am searching for the Geffen records version of it if that even exist.

Wow, incredible find Jonathan! That’s something really special. You should be proud of having it :blush:

Not sure that Geffen ever released a version of it — my understanding is that Lifehouse wasn’t involved with them until 2004 when they funded the self-titled album’s recording. Perhaps Dreamworks, when they briefly changed the name to “Bliss”?

Would love to see a photo of the back cover and liner notes / disc… always wondered what they look like :stuck_out_tongue:

Ermm guys… I noticed Out of The Wasteland is no longer on streaming services. I checked Spotify, YT Music and Tidal. Is this just temporary or will this be forever? :pensive: That album is one of my absolute fav, gutted to see it’s not readily available

Happy New Years everyone! Last year was relatively quiet on all fronts so I too am thinking we’ll see JW and OZ at least. I’m super pumped for Jay’s record and I would love to see a second Demos Vol but he hasn’t brought it up in a few years so I’m not holding my breath on that. I’d also love to see more Future Wars-style tracks and the long-awaited Garden of the Sun record.

@JonathanDisarray1 I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if that DLD copy says “Geffen”, “Pre-Release” or “Special Collectors Edition” on the disc, it’s a counterfeit. They’ve popped up from time to time and I even fell for it myself on eBay just last week (same price) but caught it in time to cancel. When they toured for the self-titled record in 2005, I asked Jason if they would ever re-record/re-release DLD. He said that him and E (Ean Mering) were playing around with some of those songs but that’s it. DLD was never commercially released nor was it ever released by a label. I had an original copy in the early-00s before foolishly selling it and have tried getting it back ever since (would love a CD rip in FLAC!).

@snowfist I checked Deezer and it doesn’t show up under their discography but I did find it by searching. However, the release date is 12/31/13 which is a bit early lol

so my copy is a bootleg lol i mean at least it has a working disc and it has its cover art btw i will show you a picture of the disc

The Disc

its not Geffen i did not say it was Geffen

Ah sorry, read your post wrong. But yes, that is a counterfeit. The CD is a burned disc of the MP3s circulating online.

hey shawn by the way have you read my reply in Live shows download links?

about what you said
well mom won’t be happy paying 96 for it imo that guy should be kicked off for selling something that was never published but oh well let him do what he likes selling things i guess

If you paid using PayPal, open a claim. People like that won’t stop taking advantage of others unless they’re stopped.

Jumping over to your other post…

I see it on Spotify up here in Canada!

i can’t seem to get in touch with this guy hope he’s alright he’s the one who made me a Lifehouse fan and Vertical Horizon

He might not use his account much these days. You can contact me on YT or FB but I don’t use them so I would never reply lol

I checked through what I have and I think I got myself confused. I have the Rock AM Ring concert from 2003 in its entirety - DVD quality as well as the VH1 unplugged set. I don’t have the video for Pinkpop 2003 anymore. I had that one a decade ago but it was likely lost to time. It’s available (or was?) on YT but the quality is pretty much garbage from what I recall. Sorry to disappoint! Maybe Rock AM Ring is of interest? Same year, similar set. Serge is there as well as Sean.

i mean thats fine you can give me rock am ring

i happen to had house of blues Cleveland OH 2005-05-07 will post it on the archive . org later
