Well, we're back.
After failing to meet that 2018 deadline, we decided to keep silent until we actually had something to show; and we're glad we did.
The past year and a half has been a sweaty trial-and-error experience. After our show at the end of 2017, we took a break for the holidays. We came back, strong as ever, with the goal of recording all the material we've written. We attempted to record with sampled drums on an electronic kit, but quickly realized we had outgrown it. The electronic drum kit we used to release our first recordings served it's purpose, but we knew we needed LIVE TAPS to get the feel we were yearning for.
We ended up in Vince's outdoor shed in the summer of 2018 in an attempt to record his drums. Between the summer heat cooking us, the poor sound quality of the shed, and our inexperience of recording live drums, we rushed the drum recordings. This left the recordings sounding like total garbage. As the result of a desperate search just a day after the shed recordings, we found an indoor storage facility who allowed us to rent space for practicing and recording. With an air conditioned space available to us, we got right down to practicing. For the next 8 months we practiced and wrote songs almost weekly, all the while soaking in all the recording and mixing knowledge we could.
Last month we decided to release three songs in an EP, and after a month of amateur mixing and mastering on them, we're proud to present "Spicy". The three of us have been looking forward to this release for so long.
After this release, we hope to hop on some summer/fall/winter shows this year while gearing up for another release.
Or maybe we'll come back in 2021 with another 4 minute EP.
