Down By Five to release 3rd album

It doesn’t feel like that long ago that we were going back-and-forth to Sound Write Recording Studio to work on what became Emergency Party.  While making that album, we had to cut down on the number of songs that were going to be on it, just from a time/expense standpoint.  Leaving certain songs out was not an easy decision, but we did so knowing that at some point in the not-too-distant future, we’d get ‘em out there one way or another.  Well, here goes nothing…

In addition to some of the “b-sides” that didn’t make EP, we’ve written a couple of new tunes and we’ve decided to take a stab at recording this whole beast ourselves.  Up first – drum tracks:

TJ and I knocked out all six songs in one session at our practice space, and after he’s finished putting together a rough mix, the next steps will be adding bass, guitars, vocals and any extra bells and whistles that’ll contribute to the badassness of these songs.  We really can’t wait to see what we can do with this album, and hopefully our enthusiasm comes through when you get a chance to hear it.

Matt, Dan and TJ – you’re on the clock…
