Fourteen years of writing.
Five years of demos.
Fifteen months of planning.
Maybe most importantly, something like thirty years of brotherhood.
On Thursday I’ll start tracking drums for howie&scott’s fifth LP; Ten new songs plus four b-side type extras. Some of the riffs were written in 2002-03 along with the material that became signs.comets, while the newest song was composed this year. The demos sound a bit like everything we’ve ever done, plus some new elements.
It will be the first I’ve done the main drums for h&s since Bigger Sounds For Fewer Folks (!). It’s a logistical necessity given Scottie’s school schedule.
I hope to have drums done by the end of November. After that it’s anyone’s guess; a late 2017 release seems within reach, but life happens, too.
