Album recording report #1

Greetings! I'm happy to report that we have *almost* finished the instrument recording for the first half of our new album.

We've also got rough guitars, synths and drum programming down for almost all of the other half too, but still need to record the more polished final takes for those. Some songs are based on dormant ideas that I've had kicking around on my computer in very rough forms but a lot are also brand new, when it comes to production there are a lot of new approaches to things, and a massive boost in quality from our old material.

 Lyrically its been a fruitful time too, we've got finished lyrics for all bar two songs, and those remaining two just need a few phrasing adjustments to fit the melodies and my voice.

 I've recorded vocals for one song so far, but have had to take a break from vocal recording due to health reasons (seasonal hayfever is a nightmare for me), so for now I'm turning my efforts back to the remaining guitars, synths and drums beats.

 Hopefully once the start of spring is done I'll have stopped sneezing like crazy and got my voice back to normal, but either way there is plenty to keep us busy until then. We will bring you a teaser track from the album soon!
