Video Shoot in L.A.....filming NYC this week.

Without going into too much detail, I'll just say that we just wrapped our L.A. video shoot Sunday 10/21, with New York filming to begin this weekend...

If you were there, like Jason, Jed and Dustin were, you would have seen, at the very least:

An entire city street blocked off in downtown L.A. near Staples Center

A little movie being filmed with a crew of 100, not to mention extras and an all star cast!
No Joke.

Jed and Jason jumped in with the NYC extras to walk the streets of NY with the artificial rain pouring down. There were stunt doubles, portable heating lamps, cranes, food service trucks (coconut shrimp ruled!) and wardrobe hotties (thx much stevie and danielle!) and stylist Meagan!!

Like I said, too many things to mention, we were filming at Hotel Hayward (spring and 6th streets) and did an incredible rooftop shoot for most of the evening/early morn. They even brought us blended iced carmel macciados to the rooftop set!!!

On the scene was Emil, our fearless leader, Scott, running point for the whole shoot (great job Scott!) and our best videographer/best friend Dustin, shooting tirelessly all day, so we hope to have some great vids up here soon. The pics we have at the moment are ok, so just be patient as we put this up.

Back to making a great record.............things are really heating up!!! Thanks to Emil, most of all, and to an amazing team for making this dream a reality!!

There is much more to tell about what this video is all about and who is involved, so that will come through soon.

So the band has spent the past week in a studio in Forestville called "In The Pocket" We have recorded the drum tracks for 6 new songs. We are now in San Franscico at a studio called "Faultline". We will be there until the first week in November. Here are some pics from last week. We'll keep you updated!

Let us begin

TODAY WE FINALLY GOT STARTED!!!!!!!!! It was a long day of setting up but the songs have begun. Today we worked on a song called Fall Apart and got the drum tracking done. jed kicked ass. We then worked on a song called Distance. We basicly tore it apart, put it back together, tore it apart and then left it and went home. So tomorrow our hope is to get Distance back together and get Jed to nail the drum tracks again and then move on to two more songs. We will try and get some pics up once someone remembers how to use the camera.

Lawyers, guns and Money

"Where's the new posts on recordings guys??????" "What’s going on guys?" We will tell you what’s going on....a big fat fucking nothing. The lawyers descended like a rain of constipated locusts and now nothing is being done. We have had to postpone our recording at the last minute because one lawyer didn't get a us a contract until 4:00 on Friday. Now we wait and wait for lawyers, guns, and money to sort it out. It sucks because once you start talking with lawyers all you can think about is all of the ways people are going to screw you over. You end up paranoid and hostile and we have been talking to lawyers since Friday.

The band is hoping by tomorrow all will be well and we can get back to recording and writing looks like Tuesday will hopefully be the start of a brand new day.

With the blog we will try and give you guys a sense of what we are doing by posting clips of some of the songs. We will try and post clips of it as it gets moving along.
