New album in the works.

It’s been almost a year after the release of ‘Not So Innocent’ and TIEKEN is already working on a new album. This new album will feature not only Trevin and Trent Tieken but also guitarist Grimm Speck. This will mark the first TIEKEN album to feature Grimm. On 2012’s ‘Not So Innocent’ all recording and performances were done by Trent and Trevin, with Trevin taking on double duties as bassist and guitarist on the album, this new album will still have some guitar parts done by Trevin but will also showcase Grimm and his amazing guitar playing. All aspects of this album will be independently done, just like NSI, but the writing, performances, recording and production will easily be recognized as being even greater than what TIEKEN did on NSI. Currently demos and pre-production are underway and no title has yet to be established. Stay tuned for all the latest info on the album’s progress as it comes in, and for little teasers and snippets during the process.


TIEKEN ‘NSI’ Illinois Entertainer Review

In the May issue of The Illinois Entertainer, our album Not So Innocent was featured in a dead on, short, sweet and simple, review by IE writer Jeff Berkwitz.

“Ursa, Ill., (pop. 627) isn’t known for its music scene (or much of anything else), but that hasn’t stopped resident misfits Tieken from putting out an impressive 14-song set…” -Review Excerpt

New EP and more in the works…

We are currently working on a new EP to be released this summer that will feature new guitarist Grimm Speck. The new EP will feature songs written, performed, recorded, produced and engineered all independently by us (Trevin and Trent Tieken) in our home studio. We also have many ideas circulating about some big show plans for later this summer. We are asking for help from fans and friends to donate to help fund the band for any cd production, merchandising, show funding, etc.. needs.

If you want to help, please donate through PayPal here:

Without you, the fans and friends, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. Thank you and we love you!
Trent Tieken, Trevin Tieken, and Grimm Speck (TIEKEN)
