Studio Update – Week 1

by on Apr.06, 2009, under Band Updates, Nightmare, Studio Updates

Hey everyone! Today is my first day off so I thought that I would tell you a bit about how the record was going. We started a little rough on Tuesday, and I think we were all a bit concerned. We didn’t have a bass player, and I was the only one who knew the songs! So Jason McEntire called up Jeff Gallo from GoldTooth and he’s now rocking the bass. One of the best fucking bassists I’ve ever played with! After 5 full days of a Steven Haigler boot camp, we finally have all of the songs arranged and rocking. Steve Haigler has been amazing. He demands perfection, and if anyone fucks up (which I have done many times) they are going to get an earful! It’s awesome, because I know he really cares about the record as much as I do.

Most importantly, the songs are turning out amazing. I truly believe that this will be a great record. We’re doing our best to make this a real record, with real performances, and no edited/autotuned bullshit. We have definitely moved more into the rock category with this album. And I am soo glad for that.

Tracking starts tomorrow, and we’re hoping to get 4 drum tracks finished on Monday.

I’m going to chillax today and get ready for tomorrow.

Cheers everyone!
