My band are trying to come up with an album name.
Its got to sound pretty decent.
Were a prog/rock/melodic blues band.
We sound like some where between wishbone ash, jethro tull and muse crossed with jimi hendrix, jeff beck, the rolling stones and pink floyd (syd barret era).


Our name is IndigoChild - spelt like that and were trying to come up with a name for our first album that we have started to right.


Could some one help us come up with some thing that sounds decent?

I'd use a song title as the title...it makes the album seem more personal. But if no...

Into The Blue
Melodic Landscape
Evolving Time

???

for a prog band? well it has to be something awesome, seeing as your name is indego child. what about...............romance on jesus satelite? eh? anybody?

I know it's a bit of 'the done thing', but naming a debut album after your band name does have the effect of making sure the name of the band (which is what you want to get well known before song/album names) is stressed as much as possible - people don't have to remmeber "Album X" by "Band Y", they just remember "Indigo Child" by "Indigo Child".

How about 'Fishin' for Sea Snails'?

Y'see, the pigment that makes the colour 'indigo' used to be extracted from Phoenician sea snails.

Agreed, I think 'IndigoChild' would look good emblazoned accross the front with maybe some surrealist art or something in the background.

^ Some inspairation wouldnt go a miss though!

Id defently like to see what other people think.
I have been looking at things created with spray paint and other types of hand made stuff, but my singer said 'what does our music have to do with spray paint' so maybe thats not the best path to go down?

Progressive rock to me always conjures up surrealist images. Genesis, Floyd, Yes, ELP, they all had surrealist images on their album covers, so nowadays, if you have a surrealist image on an album cover, people would probably think 'I bet that's a prog rock band.' Which isn't a bad thing, it attracts the people who would want to buy your album to your album's cover in a record shop.

Which basicaly means you can put what the hell you like on there, a fish on a bike, a guy with a tomato for a head, an elephant with exhaust pipes for tusks, anything because it's surrealist.
But make sure it's purple.

Self titled?

Or you could do what Billy Talent did and stick a 'I' at the end of the band name.

There was a Canadian indie group called Rheostatics whose debut album was called Greatest Hits. I thought it was awesomely funny when I first heard that too.

We pondered that, though briefly, for our first CD too.

Now I really want to do that. But my band members arnt going to allow it.

Do an album called "Bigger Than Jesus" and have the cover your band members doing the abby road walk except on water

What's the topic of most of your lyrics? If they're about death, war, pain, blood put suffering your album tittle.

If it's sex love touching put compasion.

I'm being extremely general. Of course you'd get more indepth and use some better, more elaborate words.

If its your first album and you give up then put your band name.

Maybe take the name from a lyric from your first single. This way people will hear the name and might, if they have heard it enough, associate it with the single so they can remember how good it sounded.

I like this idea even if your not going to have singles from it, because it makes it more connected to your music.

Also, I like the idea of doing what The Libertines (and later Razorlight, but they got it from The Libertines because Borrel was briefly in The Libertines) did and keeping your name as the title of your second album.
