We're only 1/3 the way through 2016, but already I can see big changes on the horizon, both within YourEnvy's music and our own personal lives. Word on the street indicates we might be building a new studio later this year, and as a result, means there will be no album in 2016.
This weekend, I started disassembling the studio, putting all of the guitars back in their respective cases, all the amps disconnected and stored away, pedals, cables, computers, monitors, speakers, cabinets etc etc.... Except for a select few items (the necessities) which will be left out for more demo work. A couple guitars, amp, preamp, computer and audio playback are really all that's needed right now.
Optimistically we thought there would be another album completed by the end of this year, assuming everything in life would remain "the same", but new opportunities arise and we will all benefit from them. Bigger studio and better atmosphere will make the music better, plus a new house to live in can be great too.
Not sure which direction the next YourEnvy album will go, but currently there are 14 songs on the new demo. Personally, I feel the next album continues where our last one ended, in terms of style at least. Its a little early to say much more about the songs, but theres a lot of great stuff on the demo, now just a matter of setting up shop and spending some time completing the album.
Here is a less exciting shot of main room under disassembly - notice the missing guitars and amps :( The future looks bright..... or maybe I just left the light on..... :)
