So it's been almost a full month since I last posted on the blog, that's pretty bad, especially after I said I'd keep this thing up to date. So what's happened since I last posted on April 11th?
Well first off we played our very first live show in Reading at The Butler. It was a cool venue just a tiny little back room with some lights thrown up for ambiance. If I had one complaint it would be that we had about ten people who said they'd show up who then did not show up. Alas, we played a pretty good show but I think what we learned is that our songs work much better in a full-band, electric setup then in an acoustic setting.
So we're still on the lookout for both a drummer and a keyboardist and if anyone knows someone who can play one of these instruments tell them to get in touch through our e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our setlist for the gig, if anyone is interested, went as follows:
Falling To Climb
We thought that was a pretty good introductory set with some up-beat numbers but also a couple of slower songs thrown in for good measure.
Onto other news! On April 25th we convened into our home studio (Steve's home to be precise), fired up Pro-Tools, and began work on our second disc. We'll be utilising an M-Audio Midi Keyboard on this set and that helps us because it give us access to not only keyboard but also any other effect or random noise that we can think of or get our hands on.
We started work on our first track that day and it came out sounding pretty good even it's rough current form. We took a two week break after that due to increased work schedules but we should be reconvening today to continue work and I shall update you as work continues.
