Today is the last day of tracking #NJLP8. It’s been and amazing time. I have lots of people to be thankful for so I’m gonna be posting about it over the next few days. I believe the key to happiness is to be thankful and grateful in all things. I don’t know if any album has been as stressful to me as it’s been making #NJLP8 for various reasons. But from the beginning of making this, we talked about it being more important than just our desire to make another album and “be in a band” and that just added more stress. On top of that, I have a tendency to explain ideas in an inverted way. It’s frustrating sometimes. I couldn’t have done it without the master translator @matteo_lee, my brother. (Lovedrug, Bear Colony, Living Sacrifice, Eso-Charis etc) He worked very hard to have lots of creative ideas, keep us organized while writing, demoing, and prepro. We have a long history of music together so we were able to turn around an album that had 5 songs into 15 or more (We settled on 12 in the end) Very grateful to have a family that will help when I need it, even if it’s to help write dark and heavy rock songs. He also has been doing some sound design for the album which is a huge addition. Thanks dude! // Hey everyone! Can’t wait for you to hear this. More to come! 🙌
