Heat Stroke – The Retrospective

My new album Heat Stroke came out 3 years ago! It was unleashed unto the world on January 27th, 2015. I wanted to document the writing,  recording, and preparation for release of the album. You know, just in case someone cares. I think I genuinely care, but maybe there are others out there that might be interested. Some of this might have already mentioned in the Recording Heat Stroke series, but this should be less fluffy. I’ll preface this by saying I’ve rewritten this retrospective once completely, and again once or twice partially. Originally, I talked a little bit about each song in the order that I remembered working on it. I thought it would be more interesting that way, but after reading it over, I decided that wasn’t the case. And that’s mostly because for about half of the songs I wasn’t absolutely sure when I started working on them. Or if I did remember the order, I was going back and forth between them all the time, so it was hard to say which I really started in which order. Anyway, I’ve since reworked this so that the songs are talked about in the order that they appear on the album. Enjoy. Continue reading “Heat Stroke – The Retrospective”

My Next Album Will Be Weird


Over the last few months, I’ve been trying to explain on here what steps I’m taking to make a decent album. Not that I listen to my old stuff THAT much, but I probably listen to it more than anyone else. And I’ve come to discover what I don’t like about some of it. Details on all that has been explained at length on here before, but in short, some songs go on too long and others are just kind of boring. So I’m trying to make shorter, more interesting songs now.

Kill the Buffalo Single Releasing Soon!


Awwww yeah. That’s right. My new song “Kill the Buffalo” is ready to be heard! If you like your songs heavy, about specific clothing patterns, shortish, and a tad strange, “Kill the Buffalo” is for you!

Creating this song has been quite the experience for me. My goal with these upcoming songs is to pay more attention to certain aspects and less attention to other aspects compared to my older songs. I’ll get into all that stuff in a later post.

Oh, you wanted to know when you’ll be able to listen to “Kill the Buffalo?” Sure, I’ll tell you. The release date is April 28th, 2017. Hey, that’s less than 4 weeks away! Can you believe it?! And if all goes as planned, there will be an accompanying video to go along with it. Then…maybe a full-length album will be imminent…

Fun times. Let’s do this crap.

The Making of Merry Effing Christmas


Hey, did you know I’m releasing a Christmas song called “Merry Effing Christmas” this Friday? You didn’t? Oh, well, I am. I announced it a week ago. Where have you been?

Yes, this Friday, December 16th, 2016, this little song called “Merry Effing Christmas” by Robby Suavé will be available for you to buy, stream, steal, or ignore! Work on it began in late October if my memory serves me correctly. As is probably predicted by anyone, working on a Christmas song in October is strange. While everyone was getting dressed up as vampires and witches, gobbling up candy, having fun and whatever, I was holed up at my computer, constructing a song about Christmas instead. Not that I didn’t have fun making the song of course, but…it’s complicated. Continue reading “The Making of Merry Effing Christmas”

Merry Effing Christmas!

Merry Effing Christmas
Yes, I made a Christmas song! Fittingly entitled “Merry Effing Christmas,” it sort of exhibits my feelings on the holiday. I’ll save the details of the songwriting process for later, but right now I just want to announce the thing. It was sent for digital distribution yesterday with a release date of December 16th. Depending on your preferred streaming service of choice, you might not get to hear it where you want in time for Christmas unfortunately. But it will be on Bandcamp and YouTube on the 16th for sure, since I’m in control of those outlets. Amazon tends to be pretty quick with putting music up. iTunes is a little slower. And then for the various streaming services, Spotify is usually on time, but the others are less swift in updating.

So yeah, an awesome Christmas song is coming to your earholes in a couple weeks. It’s a fun and upbeat little ditty. I’ll remind you once or twice in the meantime, but still, don’t forget!

Boobs, Butts, and Feets Is Now Available!

Boobs, Butts, and Feets
Hooooooooly balls! Before I talk about the good news (the album is finally released), I’ll acknowledge the fact that it’s been over a month since my last blog update and what’s been happening during that time. You might have noticed that this site was down for just about that entire time. I’ll spare you from all that drama in this post, but I’ll write about it in a future post, in case you’re interested. Anyway, so that delayed the release of the album a bit. I kind of wanted to be able to post about the album before or just after it was available for listening, so…yeah. On top of that, I ran into some weird music publishing snafu relating to Oxford commas and creative capitalization. Again, I’ll explain that in a future post.

Robby Suavé the Shirt: Da Return

Everyone I Know Is an Alcoholic shirtsSo “Everyone I Know Is an Alcoholic” to the world now. Before, it was relegated to owners of Rock Band 2, Rock Band 3, or Rock Band Blitz on Xbox 360. Now, anyone with an Internet connection can listen to it. That’s awesome. To heighten the experience of listening to it, I have designed multiple types of shirts in multiple colors featuring the Jack Daniel’s motif as featured in the digital single cover art on teespring.com.

You can get the design on a basic t-shirt, a long-sleeved t-shirt, a sweatshirt, a unisex tank top, or a flowy/girly tank top. As I mentioned in the first paragraph, they come in multiple colors. Wherever possible, I made black, purple, and green color options. And the girly tank top is available in neon pink, because…why not?

These will be available for sale until next Monday, so order now! I mean, you know, if you want to.

You’re going to be able to listen to my super popular hit (in Rock Band) song “Everyone I Know Is an Alcoholic” very soon! At the end of this blog post, you’ll find links to stream and/or download it. Continue reading “New Single! Everyone I Know Is an Alcoholic”

Eagle Hooded Sweatshirt
You guys have been hounding me for Robby Suavé lunchboxes and action figures (and flamethrowers!), but I’m not quite there yet. I presented Robby Suavé the T-Shirt! a couple months ago, and now you have your chance to get Robby Suavé the Zip-Up Hooded Sweatshirt! Very fancy! Super-fan Sead, you’ve been wanting this. Like with the t-shirt, you’re able to get it through Teespring’s campaign-based sales period. The deadline is this coming Tuesday, November 17th.

I’ve posted about this regularly on Facebook and Twitter, but I neglected to hype up this opportunity here on robbysuave.com. So if you’re interested, head on over to Teespring and buy one! One of these days, I hope to get the lunchboxes, action figures, and flamethrowers manufactured. Until then, we’ll have to take baby steps to get to the REALLY cool stuff. Not that this sweatshirt isn’t cool. It is pretty cool, don’t you think? Baby steps, baby steps…
