Guitarist in his natural habitat.
Finished miking up the drums today. Got a super fat drum sound happening- 18 mics, some sick vintage studio gear and 1 angry drummer.
Spent the last few days practicing the new songs to get ready for tracking. At the moment we're all set up in the studio's drum room- makes it easier to rehearse. Tomorrow we set up guitar, bass and vocals in separate rooms and start pulling sounds for recording.
Arrived at the studio! It's a villa in a little village in Spain that's been converted for recording. Here for 4 weeks to make the new album. This is the first time we'll be able to record with no distractions and enough time to really experiment.
Thanks to everyone who's contributed to our crowdfunding so far- you guys made this possible ?. Still need to raise more to cover mixing and mastering so if you'd like to pledge just hit up pledge.thesunpilots.com.
It's Stefan's birthday today. Happy birthday mate! He joined the band on his birthday last year so it's his one year anniversary too. And we finished pre-production for the new album last night. Good times.
