Big plans and little time - another year is upon us!
Over the last 6 months there really wasn't much time for recording or writing new songs, but as a result, the new studio is almost finished being built (just working on the sound booth still). Once we get this all finished up, then recording of the 2017 YourEnvy album will commence! I am very pleased with the songs we currently have, which are clearly turning into a huge step forward in almost every aspect. It will basically continue where the last album left off. Mostly hard rocking songs, and a few "hard" acoustic tunes in there as well. In addition, there will be a possibility of multiple guest appearances, and a new lead vocalist. We actually never tried to make another album this quick, but the songs are just flowing right now, and I have to embrace it!
Aside from the new album, we have another side project in the works, featuring long time YourEnvy vocalist Andrew Kiiskila. Once upon a time, we recorded a death metal demo with poor production, unfinished songs, and just screwing around basically. Over the course of 15 years 2001-2016, we had a chance to hone these songs into something more. The time has come, where we feel this album should come to life, as the ideas have dragged on for a decade and a half without ever being completed due to every imaginable scenario getting in the way. We feel that there are enough resources to finish this long-time project, and over the next year or so, we will be working at getting these songs recorded.
There you have it. A big year ahead of us. Two albums in the works, both VERY different from each other.
