Well holy crap! Hard to believe it has been another 6 months since the last post. I figured it would be a good time to recap some of the things YourEnvy has been doing so far this year. Not very much!
Since the beginning of January, we have been routing and installing all studio wiring, putting together the sound booth, a custom booth window build and installation, and then catching up on some major maintenance on the amps and guitars that haven't seen daylight since a couple years ago. I should also mention there has been little time to practice so need to catch up on that as well.
Aside from building a studio (....and taking a very long time), I think the new YourEnvy album is ready to roll. There are enough demo songs to get started on the album recordings. I'd like to say its going to begin tonight, but realistically..... the recordings will likely begin this fall.
What else is on the go, you don't ask? Well let me tell you anyway....
Currently on the agenda (my mind) is of course the YourEnvy album, which I started writing immediately after the release of Darkside (2015). This album recording will begin shortly, as I'm currently just going through the song layouts and making some final decisions on the songs.
I've also got a death metal album in the works, under the band name ARCHERY, which has been pending since we started playing together as a band in 2001. Originally, this was a compilation of YourEnvy metal songs, and you can still find mention of these songs online from 10-15 years ago if you search hard enough. Most of these demos are completed (as of 2006) and ready to record the final album versions. The biggest thing holding us back all these years were lack of quality gear and production, which is no longer an issue, and lack of a full time dedicated vocalist. Really hoping to get started on this within the year. Long time vocalist and bassist Andrew K has currently rejoined to help get things moving along again.
Last thing i've been wanting to get started on, is a back-to-basics blues album. Again, this is completely separate from YourEnvy, but figure i'd make mention of it here, as YourEnvy is really just another personal project of mine.
I need more of it!
