    It's been a long time since this bands last album. About 20 years... Now it's time for a 12" vinyl album (that will of course be available on streaming platforms as well).

    For the last four or five years we have been writing new songs. So we have said. It's just that it's been hard... Four years back, two good songs came to us, then nothing. We have been trying, but the outcome has been meager.

    Then, fall 2019, all of a sudden we had a few more. Early 2020 and we make new songs every rehearsal. Scheduling April for recording. Something, you know what, came between. That may have been good, because what I believe is the best song came to us in early June! Now we have enough stuff to not have to use every song.

    The studio gave a nice impression when we visited in March. The recording room had a nice athmosphere, maybe 20' by 20' and 12' ceiling. Drums will be set up and miced on friday, recording starts Saturday. I'm stoked!

    That’s awesome!

    Have a good time doin it

    You can never rehearse too much but you can always over edit, especially with today’s technology

    Good luck.

    I just started my new album. However, as it's just me in my living room, and and I'm a single parent with a full-time job, it's going to take about 6 months.

    But it's all worth it for those 5 or 10 bandcamp sales . . .

    WOW, pretty good ! It usually takes me 6 months to stop thinking about starting and then actually starting.
