Hi friends, Scheff here. I know we have been SUPER slow with finishing this record but it is finally done. We recorded the final percussion tracks last week and sent off the songs to get mixed & mastered in April. 

Thank you for being so patient. We also recorded the final kickstarter reward songs this week too. So to the few that are still waiting they will show up in your email very soon. It's been a rad experience making a record without limitations and YOU are the reason we were able to make this record at our pace. As soon as we get it mastered we will send out links for you to get the advanced digital copies before anyone else (sometime in early May). 

One thing to remember is that we made this record on our own, meaning we played pretty much everything and recorded it ourselves in various studios, houses, cars, starbucks, etc… The joy of mobile recording is a good thing too. We brought in Erdis and Marta on a bunch of songs, they brought some life to this record as they always do. Josh played some great percussion to bring the songs to life and my good friend Ronny and Christian played some epic guitar solo's on about half the record. 

The release official date is gonna be sometime in June 2014, so all that is left is to prepare the final artwork, finish up the DVD and print up all this stuff.
Again, THANK YOU for making this a reality, we funded "Throwback Pop" 100% on our own and it was so hard… this has been an amazing experience because of your support! 

On a side note, we have been writing and recording a lot of new music over the past year (we have about 8 on deck so far)… those songs are pretty much gonna be a follow up to Future Friends… that means you should prepare for a lot of new music this year. 2 records in 2014?

check out Kevin's sweet dance moves in this random video we made - 

 

talk to you soon, 

Scheff

It's Christmas season. I wish you all a happy and healthy holiday. We're still in the mixing process right now, but I'm getting really excited because I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. FUTURE FRIENDS 2014 here we come. As a little token of my gratitude I'm offering this Christmas song I wrote and recorded live with Get Back Loretta for FREE. Enjoy it and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!
