Aiden to Release New Album in the New Year

Good news Aiden fans, the band are getting back together. Well, kind of.

According to frontman Wil Francis (aka William Control), the band will be coming back to life (pun intended) after being quiet for several years while he went off to do several solo endeavors.

In a Facebook post uploaded earlier in the day, the singer revealed that the group will be putting out a new album in 2015 which might lead to them going out on tour this year. This confirmation should come as no surprise since on Dec. 30, after two years of silence “2015” was posted on their Facebook.

The only catch in the recently announced plan is that Francis will be the only original member still attached to the project.

In the post, after his personal reflection on the year that was 2014 and all the good that came from it which included tours and for some reason booty short, he begins to explain why each member left the group. (Long story short, playing in a band does not pay the bills.)

To read the full post, head on over to Aiden’s Facebook here, or you can read that portion of the post below.

“Lastly… Yes you heard that right. There will be an Aiden record and most likely a tour. Aiden has been on hiatus for a while now but it’s time for me to answer your requests. 

Aiden was my life for a long time. We spent years on the road playing shows and releasing records, making friends and creating lasting memories. Towards the end it was clear that punk rock wasn’t going to pay the bills, which is why both Angel and Jake left the band initially. Nick stayed on for a while but after his whole t-shirt printing debacle and inadvertently scamming some of you out of money he’s decided that he couldn’t continue playing bass for Aiden. 

I want you all to know that going forward I have a very reliable merch girl that will get whatever you order, to you, in a reasonable amount of time. If you paid nick some cash and still haven’t received anything, please contact him. Either his twitter or his instagram is the best method, as he does not have a phone to call. I’m sorry that he did this but it in no way reflects on the business of Aiden moving forward. 

So the question begs an answer. As the only original member, would you still like to see Aiden come to your town and play these songs you love so much? I have a lot of love for this little punk band that gave me so many incredible experiences and would be honored to come play these songs for you one last time. It’s something to think about over the next few months. We can address that question again soon.”

Aiden’s last album was 2011’s Some Kind of Hate through Victory Records.
