This just in

Progress seems to be a common theme in the band (hence the last post) and we're finally buckling up our belts to what we believe will be an exciting ride both for you and for us. So I've decided to do a little photo log with some of our whereabouts for your own viewing pleasure.

This is during day one of The Wasteland video shoot. A long day of building the set with the exceptional help from our great friends who volunteered countless hours of their time (thank you). The video by the way, is coming along very nicely. The first rough cut has been completed and we're now left with the refining process to make it kickass. It should be done very soon, make sure to stay tuned in to be the first one to see it in our equally kickass soon-to-be-announced video release party.

\Mr. James himself tracking drums for Left Behind; a dark-semi-progressive-rock-ballad that was resurrected in the countless sessions in preparation for the album.

Our good (and talented) friend Benny Maldonado recording timbales for our latin-rock jam, Broken Spaces. He will be tracking more percussion throughout the album as well.

Here is what seems to be a newer, more slender version of our lead singer, Alex Valdivia. We'll call him Alex 2.0. He's tracking one of many, and I mean many vocals for Mourning Tree. One of our faves.

(Gross. I know.) As for my recovery, I am doing just fine. The mini alien in my wrist has been officially removed and exposed to clinical observations. Soon we will find the secret to the plasma weaponry that the aliens have kept secret for all these years. In the meantime, we're getting ready to start playing out once again. So, if you'd like us to be in your city, let us know and we'll make it happen.


Keep visiting for more updates.

See you soon

Using mics designed for live vocals to record percussion? I'm sure it'll work, but the pencil condensers would've worked much better... ;P

That was for Broken Spaces, a recording we did about 3 months ago. The latest percussion recording session was done with the pencil condenser mics. Waaay ahead of you buddy.
