Mastered, Mixed, and Burned [Dec. 27th, 2004|04:23 pm]

All the members of the band (and the producer of course) have a copy of the labum in their hands; however, we cannot make copies for anyone.. YET. There will be a copyrighting process we are looking into with the band's lawyer (BK's dad) and we have to consider what part of the album we want to copyright (i.e. if we want a trademark of the cover too, in addition to the melodies and lyrics copyrighted).

This all takes time, as well as printing and stamping. Realistically, it'll probably be a few months or so before we actually can sell/pass out copies to people and record companies.

Sorry for the wait people, it's coming!

RECORDING FINISHED [Dec. 18th, 2004|10:48 am]

[Current Music |The Fighting Lefties - Desperately Searching]

The entire album has been recorded and now editing is all that's going on. There's not much moe to say besides I love this stuff.

We'll have a preliminary copy/edit without labels and cases soon, but those will not be distributed. I regret to inform you that copyright and that process will take something close to a month. The album will officially be called DESPERATELY SEARCHING by THE FIGHTING LEFTIES.

So we'll have a copy for anyone to LISTEN to, bot not to have. Also, by playing the Birds EP we recorded for people around school we are gradually gaining support, which is really invigorating.

I am ready to start asecond album!

There's still tech problems with the studio so recording has been postponed until next weekend. This is really beginning to annoy me.

Recording Last Weekend [Nov. 2nd, 2004|08:17 pm]

[Current Music |Pink Floyd - Marooned]

Two more songs were recorded last weekend at BullyDog, which leaves only 3 songs left before the entire album is done! Wait, not true; we still need to do editing, mixing, and the like and then get it copyrighted before all y'all can hear the music! Sounds like it'll be here soon! Think again; it's depressing, I know. We don't even have an estimated release date for the CD yet but you can probably expect it to be this winter sometime (note: that includes January and February).

I (Steve the singer) will be out of town in Florida this weekend so the band will record "Basement Song" because I probably will not end up having a vocal track in it whatsoever; this doesn't bother me. In fact, it was my idea to remove the vocal track because it only distracted from the song, which is our only slow, drifty song like Pink Floyd-esque. I'll tell you all more when I know more; all I know as of now is that what we've dont sounds awesome so far and I can't wait to get it all edited.

Recording Sessions 1-... [Oct. 25th, 2004|06:43 am]

[Current Music |Oasis - Up in the Sky]

We layed down 4 tracks on saturday at BullyDog studios and it was awesome. Then due to computer problems we had to stop. We planned to record the rest of the album Sunday but the computer was still on the fritz.

We plan to finish recording next weekend and hopefully having the mixing, editiing, producing, etc. done by the week after that.

Album Title [Oct. 6th, 2004|06:44 am]

[Current Music |Interpol - Not Even Jail]

We'd been thinking of album titles so far for the album that we are recording in 3 weeks. I know it's too soon to do it, but yet again, BK and Zach are pushing us foreward. Because "Aplha Beta Karma" is our best/probably most popular song... it will most likely be the title of the album. This is important, because we think the that name as a an album title is catchy. What do you guys think?

The Fighting Lefties - Alpha Beta Karma

Please give me all the feedback ya' can; what's your favorite album title by another band?

Gabe and Bk will be gone this weekend for some swimming thing, so Zach and I will probably get together and just work on the songs I know how to play. Nothing new to report.
