Wow what a god damn rollercoaster ride. We’ve had such an incredible couple weeks that we’ve all been trying to pretty much absorb everything to the best of our abilities. Our show at the Troubadour was one of the highlights of our winter. The crowd was absolutely stunning and it was the first time we saw that much support from our hometown. The night itself proved that the rock scene in Los Angeles is fully alive and powerful. Many bands have a misconception of the idea of not wanting to hustle or take risks and expecting a packed house and a loving crowd with open arms to embrace them. Things don’t work like that in LA, especially in the world of heavy metal and hard rock. So us 5 took the risk and we got the love in return. We got some amazing interviews/reviews from LA Music Blog, LASF magazine, and Zoe Adler, and could not be more thankful. Whoever attended the show financially contributed to our debut EP, so we wouldn’t be able to move forward if it wasn’t for them. The support has been unreal and it continues to leave the band speechless.
Regarding our EP, we started tracking on January 9th at The Pie Studios in Pasadena with our bro Sonny Mayo. After finishing the drum tracks, Sonny decided that to bring this EP to the next level and expose our full potential, we should record the rest at a different studio. Recording is a tedious process, and we’re not a band to record just to put something out there. If we have a chance, were gonna take it and do it the right way and give our absolute 100%. That being said, we are getting help from the incredible Paul Fig who has engineered some of our all-time favorite records. (Trivium – Shogun, Ghost B.C. – Infestissumam, Alice in Chains - The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, Deftones – Diamond Eyes, Stone Sour – Audio Secrecy, Come Whatever May, Mars Volta – Amputechture.) Like I said, were gonna do this the right way and we’re gonna release something with the same spirit and energy that we had when we wrote these songs. Can’t do this without the real fans. Love you all, keep your eyes and ears peeled for some new hard rock from your boys.
