BLOGGY BLOG BLUE BOP DA SQUEE DOP…
Anyways, what? No bloggin as of late? Probably cause we’ve slaves to the seedy underworld of recording studios. Well, they aren’t that seedy, and they’re usually above ground…But speaking of that typa shit.
We were in Virginia recording our triple record project in late august and we are just chillin about talking about what we are about to do that day. We were in the control room of this beautiful studio deep in the woods (you got a pretty mouwth boi).
So we are sitting there, big couches and panes of glass, and all the sudden the lowest of low rumbles starts emerging from nowhere, but everywhere. Strangest sensation. It builds. Then keeps building, to the point you know it’s not a farm tractor yanking hay around.
Mother natures bellow is really starting to sound crazy and the whole barn studio starts shaking like god is shivering. Stewart the engineer has a seriously panic stricken look in his eye and yells “GET OUT!”
So we all start hurling towards the door. I, (chris) am right behind Joe and through the vibrating world, I see a giant piece of acoustic paneling (its like a big painting made of cloth and wood to baffle sound) fall off the wall and smash him in the skull bones. He goes down to one knee but then recovers and continues running.
We get outside and the fuckin earth is on vibrate. The blades of grass doin the jig as if their little green lives depended on it. The low rumble is loud as shit, and you can’t run or hide cause the whole fuckin planet is doing the hula dance on fast foward.
First thing we thought was this is some 2012 shit cause Virginia aint got none earthqaukes ya done herd.
But this was a quake through and through and it lasted for a solid 45 seconds (which is eternity when you think earth is gonna puke magma up and swallow all you know and love)
The thing ends, Joe’s bleeding pretty good, we turn on the radio and find out its a 6.0. Not bad for an east coast quake.
I also heard that quakes on the east coast last longer than ones on the west. Something to do with the nature of the fault lines…?
We release our triple album project on November 4th, and since we didnt die in the quake or any of the subsequent after shocks, we would love to see you in person. Here is the info:

We are release the first record “A Garden in the Snow” and we are really proud of it. Plus a bunch of it was recorded during the quake zone when we were still all shaking with adrenaline!
