Album update...

OK.....so....after a pretty manic and intense past couple of weeks more or less literally locked in the studio, we have now practically finished the second album. The first mix was completed 29th March. Sandy (The Pirate Ship Quintet) came back over for another cello session and came up with some absolutely insane parts.

So....what to expect? I'd say we're looking at something thats a bit harder, more intense....and possibly just as draining (if not more so) to listen to than Scars of the Midwest.

We'll be posting up a preview MP3 with snippets from all tracks later this week/next week.

We'll update you as soon as, with regards to release dates etc.......but we're getting there. Finally.

Thanks for sticking around guys.

Fresh Air

Busy week recording wise this week....next week too....theres finally a chink of light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.

Sandy from the Pirate Ship Quintet came over and played cello on a few tracks...his professionalism put us guys to shame. Its always a pleasure playing with such talented musicians...we hope to be joined onstage by Sandy at a few shows later this year...in the meantime you can catch the Pirate Ship Quintet on tour throughout April - i heartlily recommend them - even if they look and come across as a bit 'special'.

I think bens been busy chucking together pieces of video to upload to blueneck.com - theres various bits and bobs here and there, including snippets of new tracks, chess playing and some awful language on my part - which i apologise for. a couple of additions to the audio sections online too.

theres not really a whole lot to update you on really....we have a new engineer (Matt) on the scene in the studio whilst Corin is away in France, theres a new facebook page that you can join if you so wish. but thats essentially it....heads are buried firmly in the ground to ensure we get this next release out to you asap.

we'll continue trying to update things as and when...but until then....
