Sorry we've been slacking in the blog department. We've been really busy. But what we've been lacking there we've been making up by recording a new album. We've finished up week one of our recording process with J. Robbins (Who plays in one of our favorite bands and has recorded some of our favorite records) at The Magpie Cage in Baltimore, MD. We've tracked 13.5 out of the 15 songs we went in with. It was pretty hectic going from two months on the road straight into recording. But I think it's working out really well. The studio is absolutely beautiful and it's a really great environment to keep productive in. Lots of guacamole has been eaten since being there.
We just arrived back from what is the highlight of every year, Berea Fest. If you don't know about it, I'm sorry, because you missed one of the best years yet. Who doesn't love seeing a bunch of great bands for an even greater cause?
Before we headed out, we swung into Cleveland to go to Melt for lunch. If you love grilled cheese sandwiches, then you have every reason to take the trip to Cleveland for these. It's insane. Our friends Matt and Greg came with us for the drive from Maryland to Berea and back, and we got to meet up with two of our favorite people Mia, and Micah.
Fifteen hours of driving, a bunch of sweaty people, a lot of friends, and great food. Who could complain about that?
Here are some photos of things that have happened since the last blog.
Hopefully I can document things a little better from the studio this week. See y'all soon!
