4/15/08 || The Churches were Vacant

it was a weekend filled with Budwiser, and Rock n' Roll. Vacant Churches from San Jose were in the studio this weekend recording  7 of 14 songs for an up coming A side B side LP.
With Jonny Manak now on drums for Vacant Churches and "J-Bass" on bass the rhythm section is bone crushing with some added surprises from J-Bass! The 7 songs are topped off with driving Guitar parts, eery but playful Keys and sticky vocal melodies from the one and only Mel.

If you are a true Punk/Rock n Roll fan you are going to love the new Vacant Churches Record.

4/10/08 || Two If By Sea

We're putting the finishing touches on the new Two if by Sea record this week.
If the rock gods smile upon us we should be done with vocals and ready to mix by the end of the month. with the addition of Nate from Stalins War on bass the new TIBS record has enough drive to power a semi truck and catchy enough hooks to catch a 10 pound bass.
We went for a little more produced approach on this record than the last by concentrating on each individual instrument one at a time.  At the same time we approached the tones with a little more of an airy live feel to capture the unique energy and emotion that we have all grown to love about TIBS. Be sure to check out the new tracks either here or on the TIBS website at the end of the month.
