New Year update....progress progress progress
Happy Year that it now is, everyone. We hope your days and nights have been just what you needed them to be.
We are starting this year off with a clatter and a rustle and a bang. We will be mixing the record this week, and mastering it soon after, meaning all finishing touches of an audio nature will be completed by the end of this month! We are also working on artwork and release logistics as we speak, and are pleased to announce we are on track for an early April release, on Side With Us Records. Four out of five of the collaborative EP songs are in the hands of the collaborators who are working on them diligently, bringing the best of their immense talents. Number five will be completed soon, and will be a treat for long time fans who would have heard a very different version of this song several years ago at shows.
We will also be returning to live performing next week, with the addition of Lynne Angel, from Tartufi, who will be helping us bring to the stage the many extra layers and flourishes we added in the studio. Dates can be found on our website and facebook page. More to come soon too, including a national tour when the album is released.
Also, Leslie Hampton from SWU took some nice pictures and one short video of us at work in the studio. Take a look here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/grandwebmasterflash/sets/72157628184680915/with/6367471333/ for pictures of gear galore, our engineer making a mean drummer face, us tracking, hanging out, and listening to demos and speaking in Silian Rail musical jibberish to explain song formats to each other. We will hopefully have some more recording video up soon.
We'll have more treats for you in the coming months-- previews of tracks from the album, a music video or two, a re-vamped website, artwork, etc. As always, it feels great to be embarking on this process with your generous support, and your kindness and belief in us is a blessing and a strong wind in our sails.
