Finally the day is here. It’s been one and a half years from day one to day done and here it is.
I started writing the album in August 2018 with the express goal of writing an album’s worth of material in half a year. Surely enough I got it done and we started drum recording in January of 2019. You can watch a silly vlog of the recording process on your YouTube channel here if you want to dive deep: https://youtu.be/-7K-F9KYhRE
Now it feels really weird and surreal to be here where it’s out for all of you to listen to. I’ve been living and breathing these seven songs for one and a half years and while I’m really proud of them and can’t wait to start playing them live, it also feels like a blessing to be able to let this album go finally and start on something new. I’ve been recording demos for a while now and coming up with some new things but nothing really seems to stick, I keep starting new ideas and not finishing them, which I try to avoid. I’m sure I’ll regain that spark at some point, and in the mean time it’s important to fill my figurative demo cupboard with as many ideas (finished or not) as possible so that when that flow strikes, I’ll be able to utilise it to its full potential.
I feel like I have so much to say, but truth be told I’ve been displaying MILD corona symptoms for three days now and it’s really stressing me out. We got off really easily as a band, we only had the release show planned and we were able to move it to September. I really hope these mild symptoms don’t escalate (knock on wood), wish me luck.
