About

Covered in Bees are preparing to record their newest album, Corpse in the Mattress Motor Lodge, a concept record telling the story of a band on tour who find a dead body in their motel room and how things can go from weird to bad to worse.

Corpse in the Mattress Motor Lodge is the most ambitious recording project the Bees have ever attempted. We have created an audio-play that blends our death-punk music with our knack for the audio skit.

The script is great. The songs are fantastic. The Bees are now preparing to enter the studio. The kickstarter funds raised will be used to record and press CITMML and meet reward obligations.

We look forward to bringing this project to life and thank you for checking out our Kickstarter page.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges facing Covered in Bees and our ability to complete the record and meet our reward obligations are preparation, scheduling and vendors.

When our funding goal is reached we must find the time to properly prepare. This will be our 6th album, but it will be the first we have recorded in a proper studio. In order to pull off this audio-play-concept-record, we must be able to make the most of every second and execute on demand in the studio. In order to pull off this masterpiece we must come prepared and ready to execute, ninja style. Making the time to prepare will be most important.

We have never recorded a full length audio-play before. Although, we have recorded full-length albums with skits, this is going to be a challenge and we won’t know what we won’t know until we start production, but we will have a well rehearsed cast of voice actors to eliminate that issue. Folks have families, kids, business, *gasp* other bands; so scheduling and planning far into the future will be paramount. It’s not very rock n roll, but a production schedule might be the best way to be super productive.

Scheduling is always a nightmare. Coordinating the rehearsal, recording, mastering, art, pressing and distribution on any record, even when well funded, can be a head wrecker. Even with the funds made possible via Kickstarter, we will need to work with vendors to complete the project by its goal date. This goes for the album as well as all the reward obligations. We will do our very best to meet the stated goals, but we cannot control delays at the CD pressing plant or stickerguy.com. We can plan ahead and eliminate as many of these problems as possible, but we are at the mercy of some of our vendors. That being said, we do have a number of vendors we have worked with over the years and we hope to use then again on this project. This should help eliminate new vendor issues.

We are confident that we can meet our obligations and make a great death-punk record. We will keep our supporters informed, always letting you know how things are going; but most importantly when we are facing delays or challenges.

Covered in Bees see this as a new adventure that we are about to go on with our friends/fans/family and we look forward to sharing this journey with you and making a killer record.
