Well folks, it’s almost here. Our first full length album is coming down the home stretch. It’s only been a little over a month, but it’s felt like an long, amazing journey…

TRACKING 10505418_738896672823108_3147472269230883382_n

Monday, June 2nd

We walked into Miner Street recordings in Philly…a relatively unassuming little place that, in reality, was a recording wet dream! The huge ceilings, natural lighting, oh…and the incredibly sick gear could not be beat! We spent the first few days laying down rhythm tracks for all 11 songs on the new album.10389684_10154207872860181_623533612541144128_n Then we layered on guitars, keys, organ, sax, trumpet, melodica, synth, dog barking….all kinds of amazing things that you’ll just have to listen for. Ten studio days, 6 dozen Federal Donuts, 12 cases of water, about 2 packs of Ginger beer, a shit load of felafel, and one free pizza later, and we finished tracking. Special thanks to our engineer Matt Schimelfenig who, for one, put up with us for a whole two weeks, and two, did such a god damn kick ass job recording us and getting the sweetest tones, that our minds were blown. Thanks man! 10426342_726007574112018_5058582312953171965_n 10371754_726718610707581_531325299447137290_n

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THEN WE TOOK A WEEK OFF!

To cleanse the musical palate, and not totally murder each other, we took a few days off before mixing began.

 

 

MIXING

Friday, June 27th

1468632_737459062966869_4667979672414234150_nOur fearless drummer/producer/engineer guy R. M. Webb took a leisurely bike ride down to South Philly and Cambridge Sound Studios. Home of Jim Salamone, Cambridge is a kick ass studio with amazing gear and even cooler ambiance. There, Robby set up shop, and there he has been ever since…slaving away at the mixing board making us sound halfway decent and making this record sound absolutely incredible.

So 3 cheers to Robby Webb as he puts the finishing touches on mixing what will be our first full length studio album. After this, it’s on to Mastering, and then, soon after, straight to your ear balls!

So get ready planet earth. New Cold Roses music is coming your way…and we’ll be coming to a town near you soon after.

 

Also, let us take a moment to thank EVERYONE who donated to our indiegogo campaign! Without you, none of this…none of it would be possible! You are the reason we’re here, and why we do what we do. Recording this album has been amazing, but it means nothing without the fans, family, and support we get from you….so again and for all time THANK YOU!!!!

-Love
