...Well, on our end of things at least. We're still waiting on a couple guest spots to be finished and a few finishing touches before we send it off to be mixed and mastered but that will be done by the end of next week. It was a long (6 weeks) and difficult journey but we made it. It's been 3 years since we recorded our last full length and this record is without a doubt ten times the record "Mutiny!" was for a variety of reasons. It's faster, less goofy, more complex both musically and lyrically, plus we've all gotten way better at our instruments and we had a lot more time in the studio to work on things until we were happy with them. The bar has been raised. The label will be announcing the signing at the end of the week and the (tentative) street date is 7/21/09.
I must credit the following people, places, and events for keeping me sane throughout the course of this album's recording session:
-Jimmy Eat World for playing "Clarity" in its entirety. One of the best shows I've ever seen.
-Felicia for getting us front row of the VIP section tickets to the aforementioned show, along with hooking up list spots to countless other shows
-Meshuggah for being the heaviest band on the planet and somehow influencing our record
-McDonald's filet-o-fish Fridays
-The burrito truck by Mike's studio
-Mike Green for taking this project on. He had no idea what he was getting himself into!
-Cantaloop frozen yogurt
-VONS' free 7th deli sandwich deal
-Call of Duty: World at War and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
-Junior, Susie, and Nala for donating their house (and some of their food) to us for a month and a half
-And last but not least, all of our friends who came and hung out or did guest vox
Mutiny is dead!!!
