We are finished with recording! Let's take a moment to let that soak in.
Here's what that looks like:
We first met with Micky the end of July 2014 to talk about recording. We kicked off our album campaign in September, and we were fully funded by March (woo hoo!). Our first recording session was November 9th. We had 18 recording sessions over the next (almost) 6 months. Each session was 4-8 hours long (sometimes 10!), usually at the longer end of that.
During those 6 months, we had 22 shows. Jesse's wife had their second daughter the end of October. Thanksgiving. Christmas. New Years. Birthdays. Hospital visits. ATTEMPTING to have a life (that rarely happened). All of this was going on while trying to get recording finished. I should also add in our Thursday night practices at Jesse's house. Our families have had to deal with us basically having no free weekends...or week days, for that matter.
Needless to say, we're very tired! Next up is mixing, mastering, and production. We don't have an official release date (we're hoping for the beginning of June)... but keep your eyes and ears open! We'll let you know as soon as we do. Until then... the show(s) will go on!
