It seems like only a few months ago that I’d put the finishing touches on All Roads Lead Here and breathed a sigh of relief; “I’ve got plenty of time to get to work on the next album” I said. Well time, it seems, moves pretty damn quick and life tends to…happen. So here we are at the back end of 2013 and I expect you’re all ready for some news about it.
Firstly, none of the EP tracks will appear on the next LP. I know it’s kind of a common thing to do but I’m looking to move forward in terms of sound and production. That said, some ideas from my “New Album Sampler” MP3’s that I

Back when I was writing ATDE you guys were a part of the process; you saw and heard it all coming together, and that’s how it’ll work with the new record too.
Until next time, if you’ve got any ideas for cool tutorial articles or anything that you’d like to have explained just leave it in the comments section below.
