The Apple Picking Festival
After watching TAPF perform at the lakeside park gazeebo Color Copy records signed them to a huge 6 album contract. Following the signing buzz TAPF decided to head back to the studio and record an Extended Play. In early 2007 they released the "Doosh is what weez gay for EP" and although it was loved, many including the band find this EP to be the worst album they have recorded. in March of 07 color copy decided to re-release "Touching Yourself".
Along with remastering all the tracks CCR decided to throw on the EP and a few bonus tracks resulting in the first TAPF "greatest hits collection". This greatest hits collection was a huge hit in the south where the band personally sold many copies to random hicks while on tour. Now with a bigger fanbase TAPF seemed unstoppable as they spent the summer writing tracks for what would become the "Dr. Quinn "The Inferior" Medicine Woman EP".
While recording the EP tensions arose between the members and by the time Color Copy released it the band had announced a break up. Citing personal conflicts and in fighting no one ever thought TAPF would get back together. After a few years of silence out of nowhere in 2010 TAPF released "Fuck Ye Merica" a country album in which the band shares there dream for America. While interviewed Synister and the Rev B said that "the album needed to be made and we put aside our differences to make it".
Rev said the motivation for this record was" the US bein in the shitter because of Obama and them wanting to make a album to rally the tea party in order to take back the nation". This album was a huge success and it shows the huge progression the band has made both musically and lyrically. After seeing how loved the album was , TAPF decided to reform. They spent the next 6 months in the studio writing and recording there brand new concept EP "Its good to be the king".
A 27 minute 1 track affair "Its Good to Be the King" shows the band stepping into a even newer and braver direction.....THE ROCK OPERA. While asked on why they decided to make a rock opera Synister stated "Awhile back Kid Rock and Scott Stapp released a sex tape. Those two men our are biggest influences and we feel that the story of the faithful night that they recorded the tape needed to be told.". Although not out until January 17th the buzz for this album is strong and many say this may be the most anticipated TAPF to date.
