Pedals & Guitars



The new record furthered our love affair with guitar pedals. Here’s just a sample of some that we were using…





… And of course, we love guitars…




In case you haven’t heard…



Rehearsal.



Rehearsal… time for us to translate the songs that we’ve recorded into something that we can play live.


How Wide Awake Has Changed.



Wide Awake is one of the few songs that has been around since before our first record, On Being And The Affect. We had always loved the energy but it just didn’t make the cut when we were trying to decide what songs to record the first time around.

When we started prepping for our upcoming album, we knew that we had to record Wide Awake or else it would likely never get recorded. However, when we started laying down the tracks in the studio, we kept hitting snags. The first was an intro that was too long. We militantly cut it. The next issue was that the bridge was too long. It lost it’s energy because it lacked direction, so we cut it down to a quarter of the length. The next complication was that when we went to record the main guitar part – the part that sparked the entire song in the first place – it just wasn’t sitting right in the song. We tried our best to be objective and settled on the fact that it just wasn’t a great guitar part. Weeks went by until we wrote something that we were happy with… a delayed chaos that is one of the most aggressive parts of our new record. You’ll understand the moment you hear it.

The new album won’t be out for a little while, but for now, here’s a video of the original Wide Awake in all it’s unedited glory.

The New Album Is Mixed.



Making an album is a very intense process. It is an incredible experience, however, there’s no getting away from hard work. The album that we’ve been working on took us well over a year to record. For good or for bad, doing it on our own clock gave us the liberty to make the album near perfect… at least to us. We were given the opportunity rethink what we had written and how we’d arranged everything to make the songs as good as they could be. We just finished mixing and the plan is to master in January. We’re still not sure when we will be releasing the album, but we’ll certainly keep you posted.

Ryan Writing Lyrics



Here’s a cool pic of Ryan in the studio finishing up some lyrics.

For guitarists out there… check out the cool original 60’s Ampeg Gemini II that Ryan is sitting next to. The reverb and vibrato on that thing are incredible.
