Bill Ward’s Dark Half Hour Released!

This morning Bill Ward released a track from his forthcoming solo album “Beyond Aston” over at his website. The track name is “The Dark Half Hour”. Here’s a message from Bill about the release…

Hello everyone,
It’s been an extremely busy beginning of the New Year, and I would like to wish you all a happy, healthy, and rockin’ 2004. We’ve been hard at work in the studio completing mixes for “Beyond Aston,” and I wanted to share one of the new songs with you now. The song is titled “The Dark Half Hour,” and it’s about sexuality and sexual shams in part. This version is a close master mix, and therefore, will be different than the final master that will end up on the album. This version will only be available here as a free download. I hope you like the song.
I would also like to thank everyone who purchased a copy of “Straws” over the past few months to help raise money for several deserving charities. For those of you who have e-mailed to ask if you may still purchase a copy “Straws” — yes, the CDs are still available via the web site. I greatly appreciate all your generosity and your support of this project.
Hope you enjoy “The Dark Half Hour” and look for more information on “Beyond Aston.”
— Bill Ward
