The album was produced, mixed and recorded by Don Alsterberg (The (International) Noise Conspiracy) and will see an April 19th North American release date through Nuclear Blast. Speaking on the sessions for it, the group had the following to offer:
“We recorded the album in several different sessions. As much as possible, we tried to do live. All of it is 100% analog… and we’d like to take this opportunity to once and for all kill the argument that recording analog is ‘retro’ or that we’ve got a ‘retro’ sound. Analog recording is just one technique among many.
Just like you build a house using bricks, wood or whatever. Paint a picture using oil, acrylic or Photoshop. Our music sounds best recorded analog; other bands sound best using nothing but computers and a thousand filters. Analog recording brings warmth and an organic feeling to the music, that’s what we like. To us, ‘retro’ is often something negative, meaning an unimaginative repetition of what has been or just a carbon copy of something old.
We play timeless classic hard rock with a lot of blues and psychedelic influences among many others. And regarding analog being retro: Go through the history of rock and pick your best twenty albums. How many of them have been recorded on computers? Don’t mistake classic pieces of work for retro.”
