How the heck is everyone doing? We hope the last few COVID-19 flavoured months haven’t got you too down. Tis really sucks, we know, but we all do what we can and hope for a positive outcome sooner rather than later.
We’ve been really busy during this time (not really), making sure we stayed productive by finding creative ways to work around lockdown (we were bored). The upside is that we can (finally) tell you that we have a new single coming! We’re shooting for a mid-August release on the Spotifys and who knows, maybe a show not too long after that? Keep your fingers crossed…not saying something might be in the works but something might be in the works 😉
Meanwhile make sure you watch Ryan’s PSA from the wilderness…
It’s been a long road. Way back in March of 2018 we made our way to Hillside Audio in Ottawa to record some tracks. It was a bit of an uncertain time for us. We were excited to start working on our debut EP but we didn’t have a vocalist at the time, so the recordings would have to remain as instrumental bed tracks until we found one.
Enter Will Andrade. Will came on board that summer and started working on putting vocals down on the tracks. Through the fall and winter of 2018 we had a busy gig and rehearsal schedule and the project was temporarily put on the back burner. We finally got back to recording in the summer of 2019, getting Will’s vocals down on a few tracks, but we ended up parting ways with Will in the fall of 2019 so the EP project was back on hold yet again while we figured out how to move forward.
That’s when Ryan Conway decided (with some friendly urging) that he’d step up to the plate and took on the task of vocals on top of his guitar duties. It was a perfect fit. We spent the November and December of 2019 re-recording all the vocals – with the exception of Ryde. We felt that Will was big part of the band during a period of growth for us and it was important to us that we acknowledge that. As a result the version of Ryde that appears on the EP is the original vocal that Will recorded back in 2018.
We spent January mixing and mastering the EP and we can FINALLY say….IT’S DONE! Check out the tracks on the Music page (they’re all there!). The EP is making its way to the major online stores and should be available on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, Google Play and all the others shortly.
We hope you enjoy the music, it’s been a long time coming! There will be a limited run of physical CDs available in the near future as well…stay tuned!
