It’s invigorating. Having all the band hanging out in one house. Each practicing our own parts in separate rooms and then together for hours - and I means hours... It’s intense in a very good way. We’re getting to know each other. We eat together. We play together. We laugh together. So much so that I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited or nervous for the possibilities in our future. John’s fresh take on everything that’s happening is a good reminder that it’s not just life as normal. It’s our life, seemingly normal to us at this point, but it’s far from normal. Finding someone who shares our passion for music is energizing and it’s about time we found him.
Now the big question is, do we continue planning a giant tour into next winter or do we postpone and make the second album. Even though we’re writing as much as we can, rehearsals are taking up so much of our time now and full time touring starts very soon. Will we actually have time to lay down the tracks within the next 6 months? Not sure. There’s not a lot of time at home. 6 weeks this summer and a lot of it we’re “home” but only for 3-4 days at a time. So what’s more important... With the direction we’re going, I feel like we should record another album as soon as we can, but it may take a month off to get it done. No better time than January to take a month off. So what do we do... We’ll be putting some serious thought into this and hopefully the answer will come to us.
Until then we’ll just be shredding away, trying to make our show better and better each night! We’ve been having a great time at the jams and wanted to thank each of the host bands and venues for having us. Plus all the amazing photographers who have shot us. If you attend live music of any kind, you are personally responsible for keeping our scene alive and kicking! It feels great to be so involved in our scene lately and we hope we can keep it up (when not on tour of course!) See you on the road!
