PROFILE: Ruetschle

...boasting one of most difficult names in Dayton to spell and pronounce correctly (it's Rich-ly), local powerpoppers Ruetschle are gearing up for their third release on Poptek records. Taking a break from recording the new album (which is due out this Fall) to play a show this Friday, frontman Mike Reutschle took a minute out of his schedule to talk with us here at The Buddha Den...

The Buddha Den: So Reutchle has been laying low since last fall, primarily working on new material from our understanding. How is the new album, Color Theory, coming thus far?

Mike Ruetschle: We are been spending time writing songs versus playing shows over the last 4 or 5 months. We have about 7 songs ready to record, and are just waiting on finishing up bits and pieces of another 6 or 7 songs. We will weed out as many as we need to, swap some out for new ones that we haven’t even written yet, and put 10 or 11 songs on the next record. Our plan is to have all the songs written prior to going into the studio so the recording process can be completed as efficiently as possible.

TBD: By the way, where did you come up with that title?

MR: Andy can up with the name Color Theory. Given that my day job is an architect – the name strikes a chord with me. Color is back!

TBD: We assume that the new album will come out on your Poptek label, correct? When should we expect this release? What else does Poptek have coming up?

MR: We will release Color Theory on Poptek Records. We hope to have the release sometime this fall, maybe even at the Dayton Music Fest. Poptek Records will also be releasing Yesterdays Forever by XL427 (Andy Ingram’s project), and putting out a digital only re-release of Ruetschle’s first record, Self-Titled Rock LP.

TBD: With your decision to do a show to kinda test out the new material, should we anticipate that there might be a more active performance schedule for the band with the release of Color Theory?

MR: We will be trying 5 new songs at this Friday’s show. With this fall’s release of Color Theory we will return to playing out more actively.

Ruetschle will be performing this Friday night at Canal Street Tavern, along with The Poor Devils and the rarely-seen Nick Kizirnis Band...

griZZZZy bear has a pretty particular spelling, but i guess it's easier to explain: "Four Zs and no L."
