Drum tracks complete on 7 songs...

Day 1 completed at Element Recording. Under Joel's watchful eye, Dinsdale's first recording session was nothing less then awesome! The band , for the first time, got a taste of what it's like to spend time with an engineer who has incredible passion for what he does, someone who listens, ask questions, provides suggestions, and critiques as needed to deliver a great product! DC was challenged behind the drum kit, at times to the point of some mild frustration, but wow did the results finally pay off! ...and here's why...

We basically scrapped some rhythms we've been playing for a LONG time and transformed them into something different...on the fly. This was challenging for the entire band. We're pretty sure Joel helped us realize some of the songs we thought flowed one way were better served another way, and we agreed!

Guitar amps and tone underwent some tweaking as well. Both Casey/Jeff we're not immune to the technical, studio tutelage of Joel as he spent a lot of time making their guitar sound compliment one another in virtually every "scratch" track that was recorded. The result, a perfect mix of gain when we needed it and less gain when we didn't. It's amazing how the "third" set of ears adds a much desired benefit. What's even more cool, we have laid down tracks for 2 new songs that NOBODY has heard! We mean nobody... so catch our next live shows and hear some of the new material.

Drum tracks are laid and now the frosting will be added (with a few sprinkles here and there). We are looking forward to recording session round two in a few weeks!

Peace, Dinsdale

We've been away from Reverbnation for a while now but we're back! We are working in the studio with KC engineer, Paul Malinowski (Republic Tigers, The Pedaljets, Season to Risk, Shiner). Mixes are underway and we are getting close to releasing some singles and having a full EP completed in the next couple of months. Stay tuned...
