Album Notes

This is definitely one of the craziest stories we have as a band. We were not actually planning on making an album anytime soon. We were a week and a half deep into our summer SoCal tour this last July and an awesome gig fell through last minute on a weekend night in Los Angeles. We were currently in Santa Barbara the night before that gig when we heard the news. Alex had then just called a close family friend who lives in LA for a place to stay that next night, however instead of getting a place to stay, he offered us a full day of free recording at his wife's studio at 9am the next day. This close family friend happens to be Larold Rebhun, an Emmy Award winning recording and mixing engineer and his wife manages Glenwood Place Studios in Burbank, CA. Glenwood Place just happens to be one of the nicest studios in Los Angeles with a majority of current Top 40 artists as past customers. We were stoked about this opportunity and ended up celebrating a little too hard in Santa Barbara with some friends on the beach. Alex and Dan had wandered off from the party sometime around 4am. I went to look in our car and found them passed out inside with the seats reclined all the way back. Dan was spread out in the back and Alex was sleeping in the drivers seat. I basically just got in the passenger side and crashed as well. Two hours later at 6am Alex wakes up, brings his seat up, puts the key in the ignition and books it to the studio in record time with Dan and I still asleep. We got there early and slept in the car another hour outside the studio. At 9am we walked into this beyond amazing world-class studio completely disheveled with nasty hangovers. Not one of us had taken a shower since our show in Santa Cruz a few days before. Despite all of what we just went through, we set up our gear and tracked the album live needing either one or two takes per song to get it right in less than 8 hours. We walked out of that studio at 6pm with a pristine recording behind us. It definitely made up for our lost show that night. After we got back from the tour we asked one of our biggest musical influences and world renowned drummer, Alan Evans of Soulive to mix the album for us and he agreed. The mixing process took about a month and it came out sounding amazing. (It really helped that we had tracked everything on wildly expensive microphones and vintage outboard gear too). Between Larold Rebhun and Alan Evans it was truly amazing to have such great musical minds involved in this project. We can't wait to show the world what we were able to do.
