Album Update!

Howdy folks!

We just want to give you all an update on how our new album is coming along. Well, its going good, very good. We've completed recording the instruments (and the fun stuff that goes with that) for every song! Well pretty much every song. We do have a chill piano song we're thinking about doing, but that'll be easy. All of the hard instrument stuff is done.

We're all very excited about how this album is turning out too. It sounds really good, nice and solid, full, chunky, pretty lol. We've really pushed ourselves creatively in every aspect on this album. And we can't wait for you all to hear it!

We begin tracking vocals in a week. Amanda has been trying some different vocal exercises and techniques which are really opening up her pipes. And our buddy Matt Langston (Eleventyseven, the Jellyrox) will be coming up to our studio for a few days to help us track vocals, so we can get the best sounding performance we can on tape (errr hard drive actually, you know its not the 2000s anymore haha).

If you want to stay more connected with us please follow us on Facebook. We have updates all most every day, that include video clips from the studio and shows, photos, sometimes talks about gear, burritos, whatever happens to be on our minds at the time :-)

More updates coming soon!

Recording a Full Length!

Alright guys, we are extremely excited to announce that we have begun recording our first full length album! It doesn't have a name yet (we do have a few ideas though), and we aren't exactly sure how many songs will be on it (we have a list we're trying to trim down a little bit), but we can tell you that this album is going to be off the hook.

We demoed out something like 17 or 18 songs over the last year, we've experimented with all sorts of things we've never used before (more synth and strings, choirs, organs, all sorts of percussion) and we are so excited with the results! If you've seen us at a show within the last year you've gotten to hear some of our new stuff already.

We are semi-self producing the album, along with Matt Langston (of Eleventyseven and the Jellyrox), who mixed and mastered our EP. And once again Justin and Blondy's dad (Keith) is helping us out with engineering the album.

We began tracking drums for the album on Oct 26th, and we finished tracking drums yesterday (which all together was only 3 actual days of tracking), so huge props to Blondy for killing it with the drums!

We're going to be spending the next week editing drums to make sure they're perfect, and then we'll start tracking guitars and bass.

We will keep you guys posted on the progress of the album here on our site and through Facebook. We'll be posting photos and videos throughout the whole recording process.

So stay tuned! We can't wait to get this record out to you guys :-)

Get Out of Your House & Support Live Music Tour!

Hey guys.

So in addition to playing the main stage at Soulfest this year with Newsboys and Audio Adrenaline, we've put together a short mini-tour with our friends in Still I Stand. The tour is only 3 dates (July 18, 20, 21), and all of the dates are FREE! We will be bringing out full sound and light production with us, and at each date we will have other friends playing with us as well, including This Renaissance, Calling Chicago, Nick Gould (of Ghosts On 33rd), as well as others TBA.

The idea with this tour is to bring a great, quality event to you. With awesome bands, great sound and cool lights. We want to give you a show that you actually want to go to, not just a bunch of local bands in the corner of a crappy bar somewhere. And all of the dates are free because we don't want there to be ANY reason for you not to come out to a show.

Below is a music player featuring a video promo for the tour, as well as songs from all of the bands playing. Check it out and please spread the word! Share the player on your Facebook page, tell all of your friends, ect. We hope to see you at a show!

Summer of 2012


It's been a while, so I figured I'd let everyone know what's going on!

  After some contemplation, we've decided to re-release our Kardia EP with a little more pzaz!
Matt Langston from Eleventyseven, has been hard at work mixing and mastering the original six songs from our cd, and it's going really well. We're aiming for a release sometime in August.
Don't worry, if you already bought the original you can trade it in for the new one!




Along with that, we put some extra cash together bought a Spaun custom drumset!
For you drum enthusiasts, it's an 8 ply, all maple, 5 piece, with a silver glass finish and black hardware. We can't wait to get it on stage and see how it looks with our lights!

  That's about it for now, just keep posted to the site and check our Facebook page for more news and a sneak peak of the remixed and revamped song, "So Much for Love!"
