This album is dedicated to Wilbur, the sweetest cat anybody could have ever met.
Over many months of 2016, we gathered in our drummer's basement to goof off, jam, and tighten up the songs that I've been writing. But, mostly goof off. Eventually, we decided that we were sounding decent enough to record an album.
At the beginning of July, our good friend and source of all-powerful wisdom, Joe Wilk helped us record the drum tracks. We set up in a small, concrete-walled room in the basement, and poured hours of work and deafening pounding into all the microphones we could collectively gather, and got a great result.
After that, we brought our amps and all those microphones, brought them in the same small room, and spent the next few weeks recording guitars and bass in any free time we had.
Eventually, the project slowed down, and we were considering dropping the band. But, with just vocals left to do, I was determined to finish the album. So, I borrowed a microphone from the great Craig Tambascio, a music teacher we all know well, and spent a couple of weeks recording vocals in my bedroom, between going to community college classes and working.
After the many accumulated hours I spent recording, I spent even more while I mixed and mastered the album during an already excruciatingly busy schedule. And at the end of October, our album is finally complete.
We are proud of these songs that we wrote and recorded all on our own, and hope that you will enjoy them. I expect more music and more shows to come from us, so keep your eyes open.
Special thanks to Joe Wilk and Craig Tambascio. Without their help and guidance, this album would not have been possible.
