It’s Been… a While

We haven’t updated the site in a while, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy. In fact, it means we HAVE been busy. Aside from the band, we’ve all had full schedules of work and life. I think our singer even got married since we last posted…

Anyway! During our communication blackout…er…um…”lack”-out…we’ve been working on how to go about recording our next album.

Our first record, “Two Years Later” was recorded locally in a studio where we recorded Drums, Bass and scratch tracks on 2″ tape, then immediately tracked it in to pro-tools and we went all digital from there. We didn’t know what we were doing and it cost us a lot of money.

The next release, “BigFat EP”, was recorded all analog in Nashville in one and a half weekends. It was a lot of fun and much easier for us to make…aside from aligning schedules and driving to Nashville.

For our next attempt, we’re experimenting with recording at home. We’ve been recording a song as a trial run and it’s not turning out to be horrible. So that’s a start.

We’ll keep you posted and in the meantime… come see us play this summer!

New Shirts Are In And Our Calendar Is Filling up!

It’s been a busy time for us in Willard! Aside from booking a ton of new shows and writing new songs, we also ordered some new stickers and t-shirts featuring artwork from our drummer Gub Pedrotti!

If you like the cover of our Bigfat EP, then you’ll want to pick up this shirt (available in either grey or blue) and some stickers at any of our upcoming shows! We also accept credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover) at our merch table! So don’t worry about making an extra trip to the ATM.
