Recording has begun!
Well, we're in Fort Worth right now, and we started recording last night. The session went well, got some amazing feedback and coaching from Krum and DJ Sean P. Right now, we are focusing on Mike's vocals since he can only be here until Tuesday night.
All the music is done, tracked and synced, and all but two guest spots are recorded. So it's just Mike and I left. As soon as he's done with his vocals, we'll get started on mine.
It's been seriously great to get back in the studio together after all these years, and a real studio at that. The Rumors album Mike and I did was all through Dropbox, email, and twitter, and was recorded at homes in closets in Hawaii, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
This team we've assembled is making the album sound really great. (For regular updates, follow us on instagram: @royalruckusofficial.) Krum and Sean are offering just amazing feedback, and have such great ideas on how to make our vocals sound as good as possible.
We are confident this batch of 30 songs is really going to knock your socks off. Every track is strong, and the styles vary widely in the span of the two acts of the project.
Gotta go now. Mike is about to cut some purdy singing for our song, "Summer's Last Call." This is a really important track in the story of Act I.
