The Riverdales have been busy recording a new album, that will be released on Asian Man Records on July 14th. They have just finished recording the session, now it’s onto the mixing and mastering part.
Here’s a quick blog update from Ben Weasel about the album:
We finished up last night (photo of Justin, me and Vapid below), having spent the day belting out backing vocals in what seemed like an endless loop. Justin will be mixing and mastering the album soon. We’re still working on the art but we have a clear idea of what we want so it’s all a matter of execution. This is gonna be a good one, sportsfans.
The 4/18 Reggie’s show is sold out. We’re going to try to book something up here in Madison for the record release in July. I’d love to play Reggie’s again but my wife and I are expecting twins this summer so I won’t be traveling for a while once the album is out.
Anyway, it was a great session and I think it’ll end up being our best album yet. It’s out 7/14 on Asian Man. And in the meantime keep tuned here or over at our MySpace page for updates.
