New music, new babies!

Friends!

We’re still alive. We’ve been busy behind the scenes. Life is crazy and seems to just be moving faster and faster. We’d like to welcome Emmett, Fraser’s new baby boy to the family! He was born with a beard and a leather jacket somehow. He already likes riding motorcycles. He’s gonna do great! He’s happy and healthy and we look forward to getting to know him. Congratulations!

Steven also welcomed his second baby girl into the world in March, Ruby. She’s a doobie! She’s also happy and healthy and is already testing out her pipes by crying as loud as she can for that sweet mother’s milk. in the middle of the night. Welcome to the world Ruby!

Besides bringing new babies into the world, we’re still writing and creating music. We haven’t played many shows as of late but we aim to change that. We have a couple shows lined up for the summer, one being at the awesome Whaling Days Festival in Silverdale, WA. We look forward to closing out the event on Sunday July 28 3-5pm.

We have two new songs being finalized for your listening pleasure ‘Fool’ and ‘Jellybean’ that we can’t wait to share with you. We flew our producer and friend Brandon Blaise from Soundbox Studio out here to Seattle in March to record with us for the first time. It was a magical session and the songs sound amazing! We will be filming two new videos for these songs very very soon and releasing the singles.

See you soon!

Doin' work

Studio X is just amazing and we have had an absolute blast recording our new music here. Thank you Justin and Reed!  

All three days of tracking went great! We were able to get 6 songs recorded and we even had enough time left over to enjoy a few brews. (Or two) This experience has been amazing. Sharing these walls with the legends of the past has been an honor and we know that the rock gods will be pleased with the tunes we put together on this collection of songs. The gear we used:

Ted, guitars: Paul Reed Smith guitar through an Orange AD30 combo amp

Fraser, bass: Fender Jazz Bass through a Fender Vintage Bassman

Cory, drums: A big ass fucking Ludwig

Steven, vocals, harmonica: Fender Deluxe Combo Amp, and a bunch of microphones

Local producer, Justin Armstrong produced all the tracks. A lot of fun was had and a lot of beer was consumed. Git to WORK!

 

Straight forward, no gimmicks rock n' roll! We have a few more things to record and then we will set this music free into the world!
