Chapter 03[edit]

In late August, Bret mentioned working on a new track, 'Not Over 'Til We Say So',[20] that would most likely appear on the next chapter. On October 10, in a "Stahlivision" video, Bret revealed that 'Not Over 'Til We Say So' was almost done, and that Emma Anzai of Sick Puppies had contributed bass and vocals to the track.[21] It was later released as a single on February 16, 2015.[22]

In a recent episode of "Ask Blue Stahli", he conceded that Chapter 02 was "the last chapter for this album", and he is now working on releasing the remainder of The Devil as soon as possible.[23]
