Unwritten Law

.
This week we speak with Scott Russo about what's happening with Unwritten Law and his other music project Scott & Aimee. Scott took a few minutes out of his busy schedule to answer some email questions for us. 

2&2: You guys did something different with "The Hit List" by rerecording/rearranging your fan favorites. Was this simply done because your old label owned the mastered or did you take the opportunity to redo the songs more to your liking? 

Scott: We wanted to do a best of disc to connect the dots for people who had heard these songs on the radio or TV, but weren't familiar with the band..in doing so, we were confronted by gathering tracks from 5 studio records and 4 labels.. It was going to be impossible to get the 4 labels to agree to give us the tracks ,so we seized the opportunity tore record these songs to make them fresh for us and for the fans..

2&2: Speaking of which, are you finding more creative freedom now with an indie label than the old major label "hit machine" mentality? And what can we expect musically from Unwritten Law in the future?

Scott: we've really never had a record company hold us down creatively.. they've let us create what we wanted to musically and we've always sat just outside the norm.. you can expect U.L. to continue to grow and change musically.. we never want to make the same record twice..

2&2: What's next for Unwritten Law? Any big tour plans etc?

Scott: we're planning on releasing "The Hit List" Jan 2..we're gonna be touring and promoting this record the first early 07..we currently have U.S., Australia, and Japan on the table now and we plan on hitting Europe and Canada on this cycle..

2&2: I hear you have a side project called Scott & Aimee, can you tell us a little bit about that? How it came about, who is involved?

Scott:I'm involved with a project called Scott and Aimee… it's not a side project, as I'm equally loyal to this as well.. we recorded a record called "sitting in a tree" that we just released and is currently available at scottandaimee.com… we're still in the works of finding a distribution home for it.. we plan on touring the s*** out of this..the band consists of my girl, Aimee Allen, my brother Jon Grill, and long time friend Dylan Howard… it's in the vane of southern California rock and reggae.. you can get a sample at www.myspace.com/scottandaimee if you'd like to check it.. Aimee is the new voice of female empowerment.. I'm very proud and xcited to be side by side with her on this.. Aimee and I met when Aimee was supporting U.L. on a U.S. tour as a solo artist on Elektra records.. We ended up hanging out and writing songs within days of being on tour and thought it would be dope to record and tour as a duet.. the result was "sitting in a tree"..

2&2: Any touring plans for Scott & Aimee?

Scott: we plan on touring and promoting "sitting in a tree".. it's costly to tour, so until the record is in stores ,we can only play shows in the south west U.S. ..I think we have a slot in Austin in March for South by Southwest which will be dope..
