Electronic rocker Celldweller has made some pretty big announcements this week detailing his plans for 2013. He states that there will be a “…pretty nonexistent touring schedule” this year because he plans on releasing a new album, which will be the followup to last year’s Wish Upon A Blackstar.
He also states that Wish Upon A Blackstar is a conceptual album and that “… the visuals surrounding it were there to help tell the story.” As a result, he has teamed up with 5 time award winning author Josh Viola (The Bane of Yoto) & renowned author Keith Ferrel (Bloodmoon: Birth of the Beast) to write a Blackstar novel, which will be released in three acts. Upon their initial release, the books will only be available digitally but a physical release is planned once all acts are out.
Additionally, Celldweller will be releasing a soundtrack to accompany each act of the book. There are hopes but no official plans to release a full score album upon the full book release.
