Our first album is currently being mixed and mastered and we should have it available to all of you fine people by the middle of March.

“Most people look at the tiles in a bathroom, but I look at the grout. That’s the role of the bass-player, like the grout, he holds it all together.” - Mike Watt The bass is done! All we have left are the lead guitar parts and the vocals! Hopefully we’ll be done tracking this week, then we get to get ready to go and play more shows.

Studio Days 3 and 4
We’ve spent the last two days working on getting the guitar parts down, and they’re sounding pretty killer. Tyler laid down all the rhythm parts, so all we have left to do is go back and put in all the solos and flourishes and cool parts. Everything is sounding really tight, we really hope this record will knock people’s socks off. Tyler’s already got the lead parts down...
Studio Day 2
The drums are the heart of any band. They are the sonic foundation of any musical endeavor. The drums propel the music and drive it forward. The drums connect with the music listener on a primal level, taking them back to a time when humans danced around bonfires after a successful hunt to the basic rhythms of wood and hide drums. A good drummer is the cornerstone of any band, he is the time...
Studio Day 1
We went in to the studio today and got everything set up. Matt put his drums together while Tyler laid down the scratch tracks. Tomorrow Matt will record the drum parts over the scratch tracks and we’ll go from there. The drums are the “heavy lifting” of the album, so once they are done we all get to kick back and mess around with all the other stuff. We’re recording 11...
Triple Nickel 01/14
The Triple Nickel Tavern is Colorado Springs preeminent punk rock bar. Owned by JJ Nobody(of The Nobodys and Drag The River) it is a pretty hip little space to play.
