Recording COLLIDER @ Two Sticks Audio. Issue #53
That's COLLIDER Drummer Ian Caruso banging out "Dollars And Dimes" yesterday at Two Sticks Audio in Seattle. "Two Sticks" is a studio owned by Jason McGerr from Death Cab For Cutie, and on Sunday the band and I (and engineer/studio manager/ advice giver Don Gunn) headed into a full day of recording (14 hours) with the intention of getting final Drum and Bass tracks for our debut album. Fortunately, we got done with our goal WAY ahead of schedule and realizing we were in the much coveted "ZONE" we decided to push forward and see what else we could get accomplished.
Surprising and unexpected, the day ended up with completed rhythm section tracks of 10 instead of the intended 7 songs, and with me getting 90% of my vocals done with what I felt was the best singing I've put on tape to date. The rest of the album is looking to be completed over the next couple of months with a release not to far after that, so stay tuned....
COLLIDER will be playing The SHOWBOX (Market) in Seattle this Friday, June 13th for an ALL-AGES/Bar with I.D. Show. Tickets are $10 at the door ($8 through Ticketmaster), and will be a great evening of four solid bands. It's the second SHOWBOX appearance for the band, and we can't wait to see you there...
