Obwohl man sich 2008 auflöste, haben sich AMBITIONS nun im Studio wiedergefunden. Es wurde sowohl Material für eine Compilation als auch für eine 7" namens "Surface To Air" eingespielt. Jay Aust hierzu:
"This past December, we were asked to do a cover song for an upcoming Chain Of Strength tribute 7". Although we hadn't been an active band for some time, it was hard to pass up the opportunity to record again.
Since our last show in Fall 2008, we have been busy with various musical endeavors (Jeff and John formed Daybreaker, Jake has been playing in Defeater and his new band DreamTigers, Keith has been touring with Energy, and I have been keeping busy with Unforgiven). Despite everyone's schedules, it has been a cool experience to get everyone together, especially given we are spread out over 3 states.
The Chain of Strength compilation, which is being released by 1124 Records, will include a 2x7" vinyl and will also feature songs from our friends in The Geeks & Offsides, Reign Supreme, and others. Our contribution will be "There Is A Difference" off the True Till Death 7".
While in the studio, we also decided to record a few new songs. In late spring, we will release a new 7" entitled Surface to Air. The recording is currently in progress at Getaway Studios (Bane, Shipwreck, Defeater) by Dan Rose and will be mixed by Jay Maas. Everything is going well and we should be wrapping up around the end of March. More release details and updates to follow...!
Lastly, we were recently given the opportunity to play a one-off show in Texas in June alongside With Honor. Having never had the chance to play the Southwest, we are very excited to get out that way! The show will take place June 18th @ The Abilene Civic Center in Abilene TX.
Although not officially back together, we may do a few shows in support of the new release late spring/early summer. Hope to see you soon!
