Studio Day 4

I couldn't write about day 4 on day 4 because i was driving home and settling back in but as I listened to our reference mixes in my car last night or now on my home stereo I'm starting to realize what we've done. We spent all of day 4 mixing, re-amping and applying effects but mostly listening. When you're crtitically listening like that you don't get to take in the whole picture. Having now had time to do that it is apparent truly how far we have come since Red Over Red. While we still love those songs and that album, Fortunate Some will be more than a step forward... it's a short sprint ahead of Red Over Red. Needless to say Justin is a hugely responsible for this. The notes and suggestions he gave us as well as his ability to mic a room and mix sounds to make them more than a sum of their imputs has made this album so much bigger and better. Not only was he willing to let us get weird when we felt the need but he encouraged it and nutured our weirdness and helped translate it to sound. So thank you Junstin, you have once again made recording an enjoyable and enriching experience. I'm not exactly sure what else to say here. The recording process is complete and mastering wil be taking place in around 3 weeks once again with Carl Saff. We still have to figure out art and things so don't hold your breath but rest assured we are going to continue to work to get this album out to you. Be prepared for weirdness and some singing and a whole bunch of heavy and did I mention weirdness? Thanks for reading, keep your eyes peeled for more updates as they happen.
