After some major contemplation, I made a big decision for the project. I have decided to change directions with the project by focusing on writing and producing a post-hardcore, art-rock, indie-rock, spoken-word, style of music rather than the deathcore slam that I was working on.

With that, I revamped the website and the bandcamp page with future releases in mind.

Now that I have the 6-string guitar, I already have a few songs finished that I am really proud of. I am going to work on finishing a 5 song release soon. The project has a very Listener meets MewithoutYou sound (in my opinion).

Right now, the site has my last full length posted for your listening pleasure.

It was a big decision, but I feel like it was the right direction.

Well, I got a new guitar last night. It may not be anything super special, but I got it for free-fifty-free. The squire is probably only worth about $130. I am at that point with writing that I am ready to go back to working on softer stuff here and there (indie-rock), but the only electric I have is the 8-string. So, last night I took a bunch of my old tour gear out of the closest and went to Guitar Center. I had a specific guitar in mind, but they didn’t buy nearly as much stuff from me as I expected them to. So, I went with what I could walk out with free of charge.

I messed with it last night a little in the studio, and it actually sounds pretty good. Even got a little something-something recorded that I like.

Now I have two options in the studio (record deathcore or indie). Going to have to start getting these old vocals warmed up. I haven’t done any real singing since my tour days.

My bass guitar ate the dust for the last time. Over the course of the last few months I have been having issues with it. And well, after my third trip to the repair shop I was finally told I should probably just dig a hole and bury it.

And so, I did.

As a result, I got a super slick 5 string.

I am really excited about this new bass. It has way more pop that the last one and I really do think it will bring a little more edge to the mix. Although this is an epic upgrade, there is a pretty lame downside. Now that I have upgraded the bass, all of the bass takes for the current EP that we are working on are no good. I now have four songs that will need to re-track all of the bass parts.

It’s annoying. But, in the long haul it’ll be worth it.

Studio upgrades are always fun!
