★ Recording an album with Head Of State

This weekend some mates of mine, Head Of State, are heading into the recording studio to start work on an album…or possibly two. They’ve challenged themselves to record 23 songs in 2 days! Talk about insane, but totally fun!

They’re heading into the studio tonight, Jungle Sounds in Mayfield, and wont be emerging until some time on Sunday once all the tracks have been laid. And lucky me gets to go along for the ride with my camera and video camera gear and record it all for prosperity, and hopefully a mini-documentary to be released with the album.

It will be fun. It will be insane. There will be fights. There may even be tears. And if all goes well they’ll be live blogging it all from the studio to their new blog (which I’ll be building tonight). I’ll post all the links and info where you can follow the happenings later on tonight once all the addresses are confirmed.

Till then, here’s a photo I shot of Head Of State a while back. Oh and there’s a quick little interview / article about the whole thing over on I’m With The Band that you should check out.
