We will now begin to record the next full length Album/LP for our musical ensemble titled; 'RXBANDITS'

...As with any sentimental moment, all the events leading up to it seem to have passed in a high-speed blur. We stood in our rehearsal space today after having moved all of our equipment out, and watched all the moments spent inside there pass in our minds, not quite so quickly but embellished with our own short-range nostalgia. We said goodbye to the place where the arrangements of sounds through various funny looking electronic devices were spawned... they're more commonly known as 'songs'. So tomorrow morning, we head to a quiet and beautiful outskirt in the hills of Pasadena to 'The Mouse House'. Our producer/engineer C. Fudurich will meet us there and we'll get down to changing strings, intonating our guitars, putting fresh drum heads on, and setting up our ridiculous stations of pedals, effects, and various instruments of various natures.. right before we head into the 'amp room' to pick out the various guitar amps we'll be wanting to have set-up for the different guitar sounds for different songs. Then there are approx 976.4 other steps to go through before we'll be in the live room, headphones on, synapses firing, to begin taking runs through the songs to get them down on 2" analog tape before being transferred into Pro-tools.

But that's all tomorrow.. for now, I'm just gonna take a shower, kick back and get my 8 hours. I have a big day tomorrow.

Can't wait either. Go get 'em.

P.S. care to share some of your fave effect pedals? I'm craving a good analog delay/echo... mmm.

This is going to be amazing, this is THE album of 2009 that I am waiting for. I can't wait to hear how you take the music even further than ATBB. You are all amazing and I know this will be one of the best albums I've ever heard.
