Random Studio Update

I don’t even know where to begin seeing as life has been totally insane (in a good way when it comes to music) over the last 2 months and I have not even had time to blog! So as opposed to a full update on life, this is gonna be short and sweet and just about the band. On this coming Saturday (April 4th, 2009) we are moving all our gear from the jam space in Leduc (Thanks Again Ryan!) to Kevin Hoskin and Bill Kennedys Studio at Beta Sound. Sweet BuJesus it’s finally fucking happening!

Over the last 2 months we have been rehearsing our asses off getting our EP songs ready to go. In the last 3 weeks alone we did a whole round of Pre-PreProduction using our own low tech studio gear, and it was definitely worth it to get most of the kinks out of the way before heading into the studio. We multitracked drums, tracked both guitars, did up all the bass tracks and even got the vocals recorded. It will be interesting to compare these Pre-PreProduction tracks to the finished product when it’s all said and done.

The game plan moving forward from here (for recording) will be to do Pre-Production with Kevin at Beta for 2 – 3 weeks (about 6 – 8 rehearsals), then we’re into full on high end production mode, tracking everything as massively huge as possible. So freaking stoked I can’t even begin to explain how awesome this is going to sound.

So that’s the update, there is a lot more coming down the wire but nothing worthy of blogging about (unless you go by internet standards then everything is worth blogging about, ha). More updates coming soon and more frequently in the coming weeks and months.
