We are a few weeeks into recording the last remaining songs of our full length album. We have been spending VERY long hours working in the boysetsfire basement studio. We are all trying to maintain our normal full-time jobs / school careers and record at the same time. Coffee has been substituted for sleep, pizza for real food, and an exhausted haze for lucidity. We are working hard and discovering new creativity beyond what we knew we had. Sometimes sleep deprivation and long hours can spawn interesting stuff. The result will be an amazing album that we are all intensely proud of.
Ian is perfecting the art of bow playing his guitar. This technique is being employed on our very emotional and atmospheric song, "Stop the Bleeding."
Giving the room a nice vibe really helps the feel.
Here's another picture of Ian rocking out.
The vast majority of the hours spent here involve one person working hard, and the rest of us sitting around giving input (or totally ignoring them while we joke around with each other). Lucky for us, there is a comfy couch and wireless internet. Chad, Josh, Nathan, and Jason all have mac laptops.
Shane and I are doing a lot of really important work here.
Josh is slaving away here too. Mythbusters... bizarre picture searching, and other random stuff.
Here's a view we are getting very used to. The back of Chad's beautiful head.
A better picture of Chad. He really does work so hard. He's incredible at this stuff.
We should be done the recording pretty soon. We are all getting really excited. Mastering, artwork, and duplication should not take too long, so we are hopeful that this album will be out soon. We'll keep you posted.

If you could pick one rough mix to hear, what would it be?
I'm not making any promises. We would have to possess a copy of a rough mix before we could post it. Right now, Chad and Josh are hoarding them.

You trying to order me around Childish? I meant that JD could request a song, not you. You can rot.
