As most of you have probably noticed by our recent posts on our Facebook and Twitter... we have been recording. We locked ourselves in our home recording studio on August 25 & 26 and recorded 11 tracks ourselves. We've just about completed basic mixing and we are pleased with the results. However, these tracks will most likely never see the light of day... this recording session was done for practice purposes and will serve as a "road map" for actual studio time which we've booked the first week of October. Which brings us to the next part of this post...
We've booked 6 days, (October 1-6), recording time at Sonelab in Easthampton, MA with Justin Pizzoferrato. During that week we'll record those tracks again, and it will become our debut LP, Red Over Red. We cannot tell you how excited we are for this!
You may have heard of Justin by his work with New London's very own Suicide Dolls. Justin recorded their album Prayers In Parking Lots which was released earlier this year. Such an amazing record. If you haven't heard it yet, go to that link above and buy it, now!
Justin is also known for working with Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr. and Black Pyramid, (to name just a few), and in May, opened his own studio and rehearsal complex, (along with Mark Alan Miller), Sonelab, where he's more recently worked with Chelsea Light Moving (featuring Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth), Black Francis (of the Pixies), and a number of others.
We feel extremely lucky to be working with a producer/engineer of
Justin's caliber. We're excited about this opportunity and will
absolutely be making the most of it.
If all goes as planned, we are hoping for a late 2012 release, with a possible December/January release party. Please stay tuned!
In the meantime, come check out one of our next shows... we've got a few shows lined up this month before we hit the studio. Hamden, CT, Somerville, MA & Providence, RI - we'll see you soon! Check our "shows" tab for all the details.
