Mercury Rising finish tracking new release…

At the end of last week, we finished the recording process for our next release, which is set for a Spring release. Starting up recording at Soundlab studios on Monday 21st January and finishing the last vocal lines on Friday 25th with a gig in the middle was an impressive feat, but we managed it, with George completing drum tracking for 3 songs in 4 hours! Back in May last year we went over to Soundlab and quietly recorded what we then thought would be a single as a follow up to The Rabbit Hole. With the lineup change, plans were put aside for the release and the idea was thrown around that we would record 3 brand new songs and turn the whole thing into a 5 track EP. We booked the studio time without hesitation and frantically wrote, rehearsed, picked at, changed, forgot, wrote and rehearsed the tracks before laying down guides and heading to a picturesque industrial estate in Loughton to get to work.

In short, if you’re wondering where we’ve been recently, we’ve been doing that. We’ve been working very hard. I’ve even been teaching everybody to sing. The new EP is set for release in Spring 2019 and we’ll soon be able to announce the title and the artwork!

Stay tuned and make sure you follow us on all of our socials!
