Headline: 'Bout Damn Time!
Greetings & Salutations!
If I had a nickel for every time I've had to type or speak the words "upcoming CD", "forthcoming CD", "new CD", or some variation thereof over the past 18 months....well, I'd have a big pile of shiny silver coinage, you can be sure of that. So I'm happy to announce that last night we officially broke ground on recording.
Matt's in the producer's chair again, and we've decided to go all-out DIY rather than revisit a conventional studio, so we've moved all of his recording gear up to Greg's place to capture basic tracks. Last night, we got everything dialed in and took a few passes at "Nowhere To Go."
So far, all the equipment is functioning, the music is sounding good, and I can't speak for the rest of the guys but my spirits are sky-high. It feels so good to stop spinning our wheels and finally dive into this thing.
The plan is to get as many drum tracks as we can between now and early September, when our gigging schedule starts to pick up again. Should be more than enough time to get all the raw material we'll need for this go-round...and maybe even a little extra. ;-)
