well, after what seems like forever, we've got a final d-day set for mixing our first cd. we're going to use neil kernon, who's a real badass - he's mixed and produced all kinds of cool stuff, from queensryche's rage for order, to the most recent cannibal corpse offering ( ). he even did hall and oates' biggest albums (like private eyes), grammy nominated and even won a grammy for a petra album. he did live sound for queen back in the day, and mixed and produced a bunch of brand x albums too. this is awesome, we're all so excited. he's going to mix it the 3rd week of july, so we're headed to chicago, starting probably the 14th or 15th. any chicagoites (is that right?) let me know, i'm going to have a lot of time on my hands for that whole week that i'm there and i'd love to hang. so it's mixed that week, another day for mastering with jay frigoletto and then a month for replication, and -whamo- product!! finances willing, that should be around the end of august, beginning of september. man, this is so exciting - we've worked towards this, and sacrificed so much, for the past 6 years, and it's finally happening. bet you guys thought it would never happen, huh?
