Promo Poster for the New Release

It’s pretty basic, but I feel like it gets the point across. This is the poster mock-up that will be getting printed and sent out to various places regionally and nationally. We will probably be getting them printed in a couple of days. Once they start getting posted up and sent out, I’ll post about it so that you guys can see how they turned out.

Model required to pretend to hold a phone

Okay, I felt obligated to share this one.

I got my haircut today… and while I was waiting my turn I looked up at the poster on the wall and noticed something. Let’s face it. If you are going to have a person pose for a photo and you want him to look the most natural, you might as well have him doing exactly what you would expect… looking down at his hand as if looking at a phone.

I mean, man… just look at that natural pose.

That’s what I call a naturally born modelling talent right there.

I mean, come on. That’s pretty funny.

Website updates are complete

I don’t even want to know how many man hours I have put into updating this website layout now that I have a new band member and an upcoming full length album to pitch to labels soon. I spent the last three or four nights staying up “waaaayyyy” past my normal bed time getting this thing laid out to completion.

But, it is finally done. And now, with that phase of the new release completed, I can get back to doing the final edits and mix-down for the upcoming release. Since today is Sunday, August the 4th… I think I will be ready to pitch to labels by Sunday the 18th at the latest.

Fingers crossed of course.

Photo shoot pictures in preparation for new release

This week Russell and I took a few photos to prep the website for a revamp while also having a few extra to put together with the EPK packet that we plan to put together soon. This EPK will be used to pitch the upcoming album to a few different record labels.

But anyhow, with no further ado… here are the few photos that I’ve taken the time to actually edit.

Random Friday Night Update

Thought I would drop in real quick with an update since I’ve got nothing better to do right now. I came down with a little bug and I took the day off from work. Since I am laid up in bed in my PJ’s with a fever and runny nose, I might as well post a quick little something.

Russell and I have been working really hard to get this project done. We only have one more vocal session left before we are done tracking. Because of this, I have started working on final edits on some of the songs that are done. By the time we sit down and do the final set of vocal takes, I will likely have a final mix down figured out for the album.

If we get the final session completed next week, I am hoping we will be ready to start pitching to record labels by the end of August. This means that we have a lot to do before that time. We will need to finalize album artwork, get some promo photos done, etc.

We have already locked down one album cover that we really like. And, we have picked out a few places around town to take some pictures.

Lots to do.

I am excited about this album and working with Russell.
