We just finished up recording some new songs this last weekend with Brad Bell at Public Hi-Fi studios here in Austin. We had originally gone in with the plan to record 5 songs during the two days for an EP, but much to our surprise we had already finished up 11 after the first day (minus a few overdubs). We ended up getting 13 finished plus a bonus cover song at the end, so if all goes well this may end up being our first "full length" (hey it's punk rock).
I really enjoyed the way we recorded this because 90% was all tracked with the four of us playing together. Of course it's too soon to say for sure, but just from hearing the playbacks I think we were able to capture the energy and feeling we have during live shows, so hopefully that shows through in the final product. Now when I say 90%, yes there were a few guitar and vocal overdubs (and we even got Kurt and Rosie to lay down a couple horn tracks!) but almost all of it was done "live." Also should mention, Brad was great to work with! Very relaxed atmosphere and he had some great feedback/ideas.
Hopefully I haven't given too much info away, and before things are finalized and mixed/mastered anything can always change, but I just wanted to share a little about the process because we are very excited! You can check out a few Facebook live videos we did at:
