Dean Ween Group Announce New Album Deaner Rock 2

The Dean Ween Group have announced that they will be releasing their sophomore album "Deaner Rock 2" on March 9th on next year. We were sent the following comments from Dean Ween (aka The Deaner):

Ween recorded the album at his dedicated studio facility in Lambertville, NJ, across the river from his native New Hope, PA. Here's how the Deaner describes the genesis of this new body of work: "A lot has changed since I released my first 'solo album' a couple of years ago.

"Since 1984, I dedicated my life to recording in all of my free time. Later on, after living with Aaron for a few years, I moved into an apartment with my girlfriend (who is now my wife; Hi baby!) She would get up at 5:30 am to go to work teaching and I would record all day while she was gone. When she came home I would stop. When she went to sleep I'd go over to Aaron's place at Brookridge Farms and record all night with him, or Guy Heller, or Billy Fowler.

"30 years later and I've found myself back at that same place, at a different address, with the best equipment money can buy. See, that's the thing about being a musician (I dare not call myself an artist, although technically I guess I am). Anyway, success affords you better tools for your trade-money buys you time as well. There are no excuses when you have sh*t like Neve consoles and Neumann microphones, that sh*t is there to be used.

"For 4 years now I have been in my studio recording all day and all night, every day and every night when I'm not on tour. A song-a-day sounds far-fetched I know... we usually average at least 2 per day. Sorting through all of this has become a task unto itself, I still haven't caught up or begun to catalog everything I've done since 1984 so there is a log jam in the filing and archiving process.

"This album is a snapshot of the fall of 2016--there have been a lot of tunes recorded before then and even more since then, but this is my second official solo album. These were written for this sole purpose and recorded with the entire lineup: the best band in the world, Ween -- Claude Coleman Jr., Dave Dreiwitz, and Glenn McClelland, also the other best band in the world, the lineup of the DWG -- Mike Dillon, Bill Fowler, Ray Kubian, Scott Rednor, and the other 50 members and usual suspects.

"I'm pretty proud of this one; it represents the first time that I was able to take what we do onstage and put it on a record. 2017 is a strange time to be a musician, live music is really your main outlet for making a living. I never thought at this stage of my career that I would be putting in this much time on the road and in the studio, but I am, and I'm enjoying it more than I ever have. The only difference now is that my wife tells people that I "work nights" and even with all of that time I put in recording while she was at work or asleep, it's nothing compared to the amount of time I spend now, and the music is way better for it.

"Take a peak into a couple of months of that groove with this album, Deaner Rock 2. Every little thing I've ever learned is somewhere on here, somewhere. Maybe you can find a little piece of it that means as much to you as it does to me. There are many more albums like this one sitting on magnetic recording tape at my studio, but this is a glimpse of a couple months of writing and demo-ing, and about 2 weeks of tracking with the band."
