ALBUM UPDATE #5 — Many people have been asking how the new album is coming along. It has been quite a while since we’ve posted any updates. Almost five months ago to be exact! A lot has happened in those months. We prepared and played with a seven-piece band at Sinnissippi Park (Rockford, IL) in August. There was a fishing trip with my brothers and dad. Jessica made it up to Door County with family. Jordan and Jessica have been working on a recording project for a friend of ours. I spent several weeks creating my first online portfolio of my illustration work. And I’m sure I could name several others things that have occupied our time.
We also made the decision to take Made In The USA off the album and record it as a single. We thought we’d do a simple acoustic version, but it turned into something more. This made it more creatively exciting for us, but added a few more weekends to the pre-album project. We just wrapped up the mixing and mastering in early November, and plan to release it right before Christmas as a pre-album teaser.
With all of this going on, the video updates took a back seat. But today, as a Thanksgiving treat, we have a new video update for the whole family! So turn off the game and Christmas music, grab a second helping of pumpkin pie, and enjoy our new (five-month old) video update!
