Man of the Times

This is another demo we had previously posted here without drums that we recorded with Nick a few weeks back. As with the others, everything you hear is live except for the lead guitar track which we overdubbed later.

This will be the last of these recordings that we're going to post here. Beginning next week and up until we go back in to record with a drummer again, we'll be posting new demos, mostly without any kind of percussion.

We've reached the point where we would like to bring a drummer in, and a second guitar. If you've been paying attention to what we've been doing lately, please pass this along to anyone you think may be interested. We've been operating in a somewhat unorthodox fashion by the 2010 band standard, so we're very flexible as far as what we're specifically looking for commitment wise.

If you are not interested, maybe someone you know is. Keep us in mind, and don't be shy, the more good people contributing the better this gets.

I Can't Take It

This is another track we recorded with Nick called "I Can't Take It." We never really got it where it needs to be, which we didn't see coming as we've played this the most out of everything we wanted to demo that day.

We went with the take in which we fucked up the ending.

Rail Ties

This weeks demo is another track we recorded recently with Nick. Same details, we recorded this live, drums, bass, guitar, vocals without any overdubs. Nick is drumming and responsible for the engineering of this recording, which I can't say enough about.

We'll be in touch again next week if not sooner, and as always thank you for listening.

Leave em behind, version 2

This past week we did one day of live tracking with our friend Nick Stumpf, who in addition to documenting the day, was willing to help out with playing drums on the recordings.

We're really happy with how these demos came out. This was the first time that I've tracked vocals and guitar live, I don't think I want to go back. With this particular song we came back and put down a lead guitar track, but aside from that, you're essentially hearing us playing this song for the third time together.

Thanks for sticking with us, more to come...
