This weekend we’re recording VS. T-Mills and I have been sending stuff back and forth for about 10 months now, demo’ing everything and getting it pretty close to done. T-Mills lives a few states away now, but he’s back for this weekend, so we are knocking out the record.
The morning started off with getting all the equipment set up, and shortly thereafter Luke Sheafer (great buddy and lead vocalist for Me Like Bees) showed up and we started knocking out the song he’s doing the hook for. IT SOUNDS INSANE.
Howard showed up to chill and get his drums set up shortly after Luke showed up. Right when Luke was recording his last few parts, Nate Hackey (long-time rockstar) showed up to lay down the hooks for a few songs as well. THEY SOUND INSANE.
After that we broke for lunch, ate some pizza, and hit it hard recording drums… basically the rest of the day/night. Howard, TMills, and I finished writing some of my favorite parts on the record that I’m super stoked about. Howard did such a dope job, and I can’t wait till our chemistry has a chance to show itself at our live show.
That’s basically all that happened today. Tomorrow I’ll record vocals for all the songs, I’m stoked and nervous. Make sure you’re keeping up on my snapchat (jakebennett13). More recording pictures are available to look at on the Snapshots page.
