Paul came down this weekend and officially finished the vocals for the album.
Eric still needs another session or two to finish layering some leadwork and orchestral touches to the songs. Mike needs to come in and add just a thing or two, but he's essentially finished. After that, only mixing and mastering remains. So we're still on pace to finish around the time previously thought. Our goal, October 31st.
In an effort to bring this project to live audiences everywhere, we had what some may call our first rehearsal this weekend as well. Recently added drummer James Stephens will play with us live and will hopefully fill the role for the next album. It was fun, but I can't continue to play multiple instruments and keep my charming personality intact, especially not live. So it is with great contentment and faith in James that I hand this role over and look forward to playing only guitar.
Please stay in touch for future updates and of course the new album. It is imminent. Many wonderous sounds await you.
