Recording Update – Tracking Starts Next Weekend!

After an intense month of pre-production at Beta Sound with Kevin we are finally ready to start tracking! These songs have gone through so many amazing changes and we’re all really excited for what’s to come. We have one more rehearsal / pre-production session then we’re replacing all the skins and teching the drums with Bill George from Portal in preparation for drum tracking. It’s going to be a damn good birthday weekend!

My life since we moved into the studio has essentially been, work and studio… now repeat that every day of the week (well almost every day). I must admit though, it’s not all working at the studio, we do work hard but we play hard too, even Dave at Fail Safe Studio (in the same building as Beta Sound) has been joining in all the partying and playoff hockey watching. It’s one big happy family there and were this months adopted children… who pay to be there… okay not quite adopted children, lol.

It’s just crazy to think that we’ve already been in the studio for almost a month, time has flown by so fast! We will have some more studio footage posted down the line, videos and lots of pictures, but for the time being we’re all really focused on getting our parts as tight as freaking possible for the excessive amounts of recording we’re going to be doing. We’re going to use 6 – 10 guitar amps per guitar, it’s going to be a massive WALL OF SOUND 🙂

I can’t even begin to explain the advantages of working in a real recording studio. From the gear to the expertise, recording at Beta Sound has been a huge blessing, and we haven’t even started tracking yet! I can’t wait to hear the finished product, I’m going to be bouncing off the walls when we finally get to release this album and play our CD release party.

I don’t remember if I’ve mentioned much about the record itself yet in any of my blogs so here’s a litte rundown. We are still working on the track names for a couple songs but as it stands, we are recording a 6 song EP, 5 full band (guitars, drums, bass, vocals) and 1 acoustic track with some orchestral instruments. We have high hopes for the record, but with that being said we’re all doing it for our love and desire to play and write music.

Wouldn’t have it any other way.
