marks exactly one year since we played The Gramercy Theater in NYC for a Vh1
Save the Music band contest! The venue was packed with about 1,000
screaming fans, friends and family. It was only our 3rd show together as
a band, and the excitement in the air was palpable. It was one of the best
nights of our lives, and physical proof that IF YOU CAN DREAM SOMETHING, YOU
CAN ACHIEVE IT.
Since that night, we have been working our butts off writing and rehearsing, booking and playing gigs and recording demos.....FINALLY, we are proud to announce that we are ready to show the world what we have been working on and record our first official album.
By the way, listen closely because all the music being played in the background of the video are pre-production demos we recorded of the songs that are going to be on the album!!
Check out CatchWild.com for updates on the recording process, photos, videos, and other cool stuff.
What is an EP?
An EP is a shorter album consisting of 3-7 songs. It is typically recorded as a first album for a new band or in between full-lengths by established bands. We will be recording 6 songs at Big Blue Meenie Recording Studios in Jersey City, NJ. Over 30 Gold or Platinum records have been recorded at Big Blue from bands like INXS, Taking Back Sunday, Thursday, Helmet, and The Bouncing Souls.
Where does all that money go?
The process of recording will be $5,000 for this project. That will include about 10-12 days of tracking and mixing. After that, the songs must be mastered. We send the mixed recording out to a separate mastering house, and they work their magic to make the record sound totally polished. Mastering usually goes for $500 - $1000 for a project like ours. Not done yet! We have to get artwork done, design the CD label and jacket and then get them pressed! That runs about $1,000. We would also then put the songs up online on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, etc. Add it up. It takes a lot of work and a lot of money to make a music project come to fruition. Thank you so much for your continued support!
What happens after the recording is complete?
We get the BUZZ going! We hire a booking agent and manager, send the record to blogs, magazines, radio stations and agencies, play more gigs, go on tour.
