Heyy,

First of all… all of these awesome photos below were taken by the talented Yuliya Peshkova and we are lucky to have her around.imageimageIn 2 days we were able to record and edit 11 songs for drums at Applehead Recording. Bottom line, if recording was an olympic sport, Chris Bittner and Dave won.imageimageOver the remaining 3 days, we finished 11 songs for both Erik and Kyle’s guitar parts and John’s vocal parts.imageIt was a lot of hard work but I mean that in the best way possible. We love what we do so it’s worth it! Honestly, we wanted to live there and just record forever but all things must end so after 5 awesome days, we headed North. imageimageSunday morning (6.22.14) we left the studio and headed to Saratoga Springs, NY. WEQX put on a killer FREE show at Vapor Nightclub featuring Kaiser Cheifs wsg us! We thank people a lot but we really do mean it. Thanks to everyone who made Sunday possible, perfect ending to a perfect week.

imageWe are launching a Kickstarter in the near future to fund the new album and to also act as a preorder for it. Money will go towards mixing, mastering, studio time, and pressing physical copies. Who knows, if we raise enough maybe some vinyl?

Hey!imageLast Thursday (6.12.14) we experienced some early Friday the 13th bad luck. Someone thought it was a good idea to smash a couple windows on our bus so we had to get creative with some temporary windows to head down to Applehead Recording.imageimageimageWe hit the road Tuesday (6.17.14) to the studio to begin tracking for our new album. For the first day we worked on drums. Chris Bittner and Dave were tag teaming drum editing to make the process go quickly.imageimageAt the end of the day we ended up finishing 6 songs on drums. Today we plan on finishing drums and moving onto guitars.imagePeople with Snapchat! Follow “erikneversleeps" (just for this week) to catch some sneak peaks of songs and studio living.

Friday (6.6.14) we brought the bus up to the Paddock Lounge in Saratoga, NY to play a lot of music with This Renaissance. Even though the Paddock isn’t really a “venue”, the night was surprisingly awesome. Thanks everyone for making it happen.image(Photo Credit: Piotr Gurin)image(Photo Credit: Franklin)

The next day (6.7.14) we loaded in early at The Armory for the Take Back Tour. Playing in a big space like that is always a great experience and for everyone that made it possible, THANK YOU. After playing some new tunes all we can think about is next week.imageimageNext week (6.17.14 - 6.22.14) we’ll be reporting from Applehead Recording recording our new album.

7.25.14 - The Bitter End - NYC, NYimageThis past weekend Dave, John, and Kyle went down to Applehead Recording in Woodstock, NY to work at a live recording session. Here’s a little bit about it from Dave:

"Every few months I’ve been running live sound for a concert series called "Woodstock Sessions". What makes this concert unique is that it’s actually half live show and half studio recording. Each band that comes in to the session is actually recording a live record in front of a small studio audience. We mic the band like they are making a studio recording then provide a little bit of live sound mostly for vocals and a few other things. The audience was not only seated in the live room with the band but also in the control room with the producers to give audience members a few different perspectives of the studio process. In between sets dinner was served at the catering tent, where Kyle and his girlfriend Abby dished out the grub. Both John and Kyle worked in crowd control, parking and helping people find their way around the studio. This months artist was Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes. I honestly didn’t know too much of the Crowes music but it didn’t matter, he played mostly his own solo material and a few covers from his favorite artists. I have to say after sitting thru probably 8 or more hours of his music this weekend I became a bit of a fan. Really good, down to earth rock with some folk influence. The best parts about being back down at Applehead for me was seeing a ton of old friends and getting pumped to record our new record there in a few weeks! Can’t wait! Overall a great weekend!”

Hey:imageIt is the last week of May which means our crazy June is almost here. We’ve been working really hard preparing to go back down to Applehead Recording.

We’re still writing new ideas everyday and will continue to write even while recording.imageJune also means its time for some big shows. Hope to see you out!
