Recording + Fests

We just finished tracking our new record. It consists of seven songs. All of the songs were recorded at the Gradwell House by Dave Downham. It looks like the mixing of the record will take place at Sigma Sound studio in Philadelphia. Their client list is a bit jaw dropping so we’re pretty excited to mix this album in their lovely studio.

It’s been a few months but, we are now finally able to talk about some of our touring plans for this Spring. We will be making appearances at Get Better Fest II, Stay Sweet Fest II, and Pouzza Fest. Our buddies, Broadcaster, will be at all three fests with us. It’s extremely cool to be a part of all three of these upcoming fests. All of the information that we have so far has been posted on our tour page. Links to the facebook event pages have been included and new information will probably be posted their quicker than here so keep an eye on that.

After Spring, we hope to post some longer touring plans. For now, this is all we have. Aw yeah!


2012

2011 has come to an end. Our show at the North Star Bar was a great way to finish out the wonderful year of 2011. Big thanks to Andrew Miller, The North Star Bar, Luther, Smoking Popes, and everyone that attended the show. Also, a huge thank you to everyone that made 2011 such a great year for us. Now it is time to start chipping away at the new year.

I just announced all of our confirmed shows for the next two months. All of the details can be found on our tour page. All of these shows are local. We’re still waiting to confirm/announce quite a few shows and I hope to be able to do that within the next few weeks.

If there is any luck on our side, the Aspiga/Hanalei 7″s will arrive at Jump Start this week. I know that this release has been delayed for way too long now and we apologize. Trust me, it’ll be worth the wait. The artwork and test presses look amazing. You can still pre-order it from http://www.jumpstartrecords.com

If you have been oblivious to everything we’ve been posting on Facebook and Twitter, then you might want to head over to http://www.jumpstartrecords.bandcamp.com and check out the 2 Sugar Sampler: Volume 3. It’s a free compilation that is STACKED with amazing music. It also features two tracks by us. One of the tracks is a brand new song that we will be recording again for our upcoming EP.

In late January, we will be heading into Gradwell House to record our new ep. As of this moment, we’re shooting for seven songs. We will be working with Dave Downham for this release and we’re beyond excited to see what we can put together.

Finally,
we are still without a permanent bass player. If you think you can do the job or know of someone that could fill the hole, please contact Kevin at aspigasound at yahoo dot com.
