Hier ein Studio Update von SAVES THE DAY zu ihrem neuen Album "Under The Boards", welches im Herbst via Vagrant erscheinen soll:
The band is co-producing the 13 songs with Marc Hudson and Eric Stenman at their studio in northern California. "Marc has been mixing us live for six years. He knows what we sound like better than anyone so it's really exciting to finally work with him in the studio," says guitarist David Soloway.
Under The Boards continues a story about self-discovery that began with last year's Sound The Alarm and will conclude with a third album, Daybreak, to be released next year. Says frontman Chris Conley: "Sound The Alarm is an expression of discontent. Under The Boards is reflection and remorse. Daybreak is acceptance."
Original members Conley and Soloway are joined by venerable rhythm section Manuel Carrero (bass) and Durijah Lang (drums). "Manny and Durijah are so musical. It's a joy to play with them," says Conley.
Conley notes that parts of the album are darker than Sound The Alarm as it's the transitional chapter of the trilogy ("like The Empire Strikes Back"), but adds, "It's going to be an interesting listen. There are a lot of different moods in these songs." Says Soloway, "'Woe', is the heaviest song we've ever written and two of the songs, 'Get Fucked Up' and 'Can't Stay The Same', might be the most poppy tunes we've ever done.
Reflecting on the band's recent 10-year anniversary, Conley says, "I'm just a guy who's always staring down at my guitar, writing songs and having fun. It's so crazy to realize that 10 years have gone by."
Saves The Day will be posting video clips from the studio a few times per week. They expect to finish recording by the end of July with an early fall release planned.
