Bassists, Shows, and Downloads. Oh My!

28 Feb

Hey everyone,
So now that February is over, we’re looking at things to start picking up a little bit in March! We’re still recording every chance that we get but if you haven’t heard, Reilly has left the band due to some personal issues. His musical talents will be greatly missed. However, Brennan Jung has taken up the challenge of playing bass and just finished his second practice with us today!

In the next few weeks, we have a few shows coming up! Next Saturday, March 6th, we will be playing at The Grind Coffeehouse with Griffin’s old band “The Shivas”. It’s going to be a great acoustic show so feel free to come on out, drink some coffee, and listen to some amazing music!

I mentioned it in our last post but on Wednesday, March 10th, we will be playing a benefit concert for the Trey Foote Foundation with “If All Else Fails” and “Search & Rescue” at Skyview High School. The cover charge is $3 and tickets are available through either Griffin or myself! This will be our first show as a full band so hold onto your socks for they will be getting rocked!

Finally, we’ve been saying this a lot lately but we just finished recording “Layter 1” about a week ago so go to either our MySpace (Which now has a new layout!!!) or our PureVolume page (We also have a FREE DOWNLOAD of “Lit Up” available!) to check it out!

Thanks for all your support and please share us with all your friends!

Recording Day 2/Happy b-day Lincoln

13 Feb


Happy birthday Abraham Lincoln.  To celebrate our wonderful president, we recorded an older song, “Layter 1”.  This song is sort of the title track to the eventual LP.  I wrote it in the summer of 2007 and since then it has grown a lot and I’m really pleased with how the recording captured it.  The song’s a bit longer (4:16, to be exact), but I hope you will all enjoy it when we release it. Which brings me to the next topic, we will be keeping these next several recordings to ourselves.  So you will have to wait to hear them for awhile.

We recorded “Layter 1” in exactly an hour and a half and recording was really smooth.  I added acoustic guitar for texture and then more keyboard lines to make it less boring.  I envision we will release it to be heard sometime this summer.
