Without Further Adieu...

So, I've been promising this studio journal for quite a while now. I appologize for taking so long.... but I have a good way to make up for it.

Welcome to our new journal. That's right - we'll be keeping this journal to keep you all up to date with what is going on in the wonderful world of TJV.

So be sure to bookmark http://thejuniorvarsity.blogspot.com/

Also be sure to scroll to the bottom and leave us comments to read. We'd love to hear from you

So...

We have been in the studio now for 12 days. Things are coming along beyond fantastic. For those of you who do not know the low down on our new recording here it is. We are out on Long Island recording at Vudu Studios (click the link and go check it out) working very close with our Producer Mike Watts. He has produced such bands as As Tall As Lions, Hopesfall, The Chariot and many others. Also working on the record is Engineer Rich Liegey Ex-Wheatus bass player - Remember that song "Teenage Dirtbag"?, yep that's him. Both of the guys are A+ dudes. We honeslty could not be working with 2 better people for this record.


Here we are with Mike & Rich


Our living conditions are 180 degrees better than when we were recording WIDE EYED. Basically meaning - no theft and high morale makes for quite a great atmosphere to record a great record.



Drums and bass are already 100% done. That went something a little like this.







We have just moved onto guitars. In fact I can hear Mr. Wildrick tracking a song titled "The Sky" as I type.

As a present for being so patient and not sending me hate mail we have posted some new fun pictures from the studio and an Acoustic Version of "Everyone's Got Something They're Running Out Of" on our myspace page. So go blast that shit while waiting for the record to come out!


Also here is a video from Maxwell's in New Jersey from last tour with BAYSIDE!

It sounds like everything's coming along well so far for you poopeaters. Good to hear after all the disasters that took place during the recording of W.E.

I hope you're having a good time and remember, it never hurts to gamble a little bit when you aren't recording... donkeys!

Good luck fellas,

K
