6 months in the making and six years since the release of the last record, ever-evolving artist Ace Enders sets a release date for I Can Make A Mess Like Nobody’s Business. The new record entitled “The World We Know” is the follow-up to 2004’s self-titled record. This release marks the end of an era for Enders, and the start of a new decade fresh off west coast independent Drive-thru records.
The record is the first of a series of three bundles of music that will come out this year, each of them appropriately considered “albums.” The first release will be available everywhere digitally including Itunes with a presale on Amazon and signed copies available on tour. The second record will be released immediately preceding the Van’s Warped tour and the third will be released in late fall. Another touch that makes this record completely different, it’s one 40 minute song. That’s right although the record consists of a standard amount of songs, the record never really stops, the songs continue into each other. It’s a vision that Ace has had for awhile and is finally able to do with a record outside of the standard riggers of the record label system. Ace comments, “I certainly have no problem with people buying songs instead of albums, but with this project, much like the last Mess record, I want it to be about the experience.”
On the new record, Enders has something a bit different than his recent records back to the basics. Fans of songs like The Early November’s “Ever So Sweet,” “Sunday Drive,” and any of the I Can Make A Mess songs from 2004, will likely embrace this record. “This is a record meant to listen to when you’re alone with your headphones on,” comments Ace when speaking about the new music. Enders would admit that the first record was about growing up, and not a lot has changed, “The World We Know” is a social commentary on continuing to grow up, how things change, and the changes in life with the birth of his new child in late 2009.
