Initially I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to post this or not, but in the end I decided I should. I wanted to let everyone know what it takes financially to do a high production studio album, and keep in mind this is just an EP. Maybe this will help other bands make decisions on what they choose to do and how they choose to … Continue reading Pro Studio Album Budget for Rock Music
Hey hey! I just finished editing and uploading the last of the videos from our long days at the studio. This video is of the acoustic guitar and vocal tracking sessions. I may go back and make one long video of everything all linked together and post that at some point, but for now at least all the content is finally up and I can … Continue reading Acoustic Guitar & Vocal Tracking Video
Dear god, after months and months of being in the studio the finish line is finally approaching. We’ve loved every moment of being in the studio and it will just be amazing to be done this mammoth of a project (and we can’t wait to start playing live again!).

Here’s a video from the guitar tracking sessions at Beta Sound. Kevin Hoskin (Our Engineer) and Nathan Kidd from Long Way Down (Our Assistant Engineer) set up the mics and teched the amps for the recording sessions. We recorded the amps so loud that we blew up the Marshall Plexi. I’d say we used a lot of amps, but I think the video speaks for … Continue reading The Wall of Sound aka Guitar Tracking!

Last weekend we recorded all the drum tracks for the new album. Kevin (Our Engineer) and Bill George the drummer from Portal spent their Friday night at the studio teching, tuning, and seating the drums for the Saturday recording session. They set up so many microphones on the drums, I swear there was over 24 mics set up… and some weird mics I had never … Continue reading Drums for the New Album Sound Freaking Huge!

It’s … Continue reading Recording Update – Tracking Starts Next Weekend!
Here’s the second of many quick little videos that we’ll be making at the studio during pre production. The pictures in the video were takin while we were hammering out song arrangements and working out all the tempos for the new tracks.
