Earlier this month I told you a little bit about what's going to be happening in the world of music group afterschoolspecial, and I just got word from the man himself on the album release party and the upcoming album.

afterschoolspecial is proud to announce the release of the band's second album and first full length, IT'S ALL IN YOUR HEAD. A follow up to the band's first 5 track EP, NOT ONE FOR WORDS, IT'S ALL IN YOUR HEAD, takes listeners on a much more complete journey through the mind of afterschoolspecial with 11 tracks that mix rock, rap, folk, and soul.Definitely make sure to get on out and pick up a CD and enjoy the show - because it sounds like it should be pretty damn cool.
Less of a diagnosis and more of a statement, IT'S ALL IN YOUR HEAD, is a message that all the disturbances, distractions, excuses, pressure, and struggle that we all feel is ALL IN OUR HEAD. It's once we realize this and find methods to get beyond, that's when we can truly create, learn, and grow. The album gets inside the heads of the band members and uses the sometimes dark and scattered thoughts in a more positive constructive manner, making music.
afterschoolspecial is blessed to have been joined by some very talented people in the community as guest musicians on the album. Artists that the band has looked up to and shared stages with in the past are featured on multiple tracks. This includes:
Derek Kan of Magnetic North + Taiyo Na are featured on the track BE
Paul Dateh are featured on the track NAME
Pigeon John, Dumbfoundead, Traphik (aka Timothy Delaghetto), Bart and Jo of Just Kidding Films, Verseatile, and IZ (454 Life Entertainment) are featured on the track FR*A (Future rockstars of America)**
