In 2013, tracks from the Xavier Xerxes debut album began trending on Reverb Nation (a major music site). Inspired by renewed interest in his music, Xavier Xerxes announced in September of 2013 that he was going to record a second album. This album was going to be made with a back to the basics approach and contain the best songs Xavier Xerxes had written in his life. This time, the lyrics were going to more serious and engage the listener very much on an emotional level. The music would be straight forward old school/classic heavy metal using even time signatures and standard guitar tunings.
Production for the “Back To The Basics” album began in October of 2013 and was completed in July of 2014.
I have successfully funded a Kickstarter campaign to fund the manufacturing of CDs. The CD manufacturing is now complete and the Kickstarter rewards have been fulfilled. The album was officially released on October 1, 2014! Links to purchase it are below!
