|Josh Freese chronology|
Since 1972 is the second solo album by California based drummer Josh Freese.
Freese released the album via his website on March 24. It will be available on wider release from April 14th.
Inspired by the value-added packages offered by Trent Reznor for the last Nine Inch Nails release, Freese has come up with his own value-added purchase plan for the album, however Freese's version is a whole lot wackier. Those that are willing to pay a little more than the $7 base price for a download of "'Since 1972'" are offered a plethora of incentives. At the $50 price point you get a five-minute "Thank You" call from Josh, who promises you can "yack it up" about whatever you want.
As you rise higher in price, the bizarreness of the stuff on offer increases. Items on menu (which can be viewed at JoshFreese.com) include a trip with Josh to a sensory deprivation tank followed by a steak and all-you-can-eat shrimp dinner at Sizzler. For $20,000 Josh will write and record two songs about you that he will then make available via iTunes (you can even sing backup). And, for a $75k, you get a signed CD and Josh in your band for a month. Other packages include crazy golfing and a nefarious trip to Tijuana and call on the services of many of Josh's celebrity buddies such as Twiggy Ramirez (NIN and Marilyn Manson), Stone Gossard (Pearl Jam), Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo) and Maynard James Keenan (Tool). So far the multi-tiered marketing plan has achieved its primary objective -- to get attention for the album. The UK's Guardian has written about Josh, as have NPR, The Boston Herald and numerous other newspapers and websites. Josh describes his scheme as "a prank that wasn't a prank, a publicity stunt but all completely legit " and promises that he is ready to "make good " on all the items offered. He ultimately hopes to film some of the experiences and post the footage on YouTube.
