Our Debut Album is allllllll recorded

Alright and cheers for reading

I am so pleased to tell you that we have managed to complete the recording of our debut album "Widow Country". We spent a total of two weeks recording with good friend Jason Sanderson in Barnsley and we managed to just squeeze everything we wanted to do in. We began May 11th until May 17th, then home for a week to demo some vocals and then back to Barnsley May 25th to May 31st. I am most of all happy to tell you that it has all come out much better than we expected :-D

As for the recording experience itself, it turned out to be a lot less stressful than we thought it was going to be. That possibly being also down to using intoxication to pass the days in Barnsley and spending a lot of time hanging out with all our friends in the area. Big Big props to our friends in Errander. Its always so good hanging out and its been a dream getting to see you all for a full two weeks.
