They had this to say:
So its the beginning of the new year and what better way to start it off than with the new record being recorded. Thats right, no more delays! We start recording the drums next weekend. Followed shorty thereafter by the guitars bass and vocals. Whats great about this record is we actually get to spend time on it, instead of having to rush through it all and not feeling 100% about what we put down.
I just got a new Mac and Pro Tools(its amazing!!), so all the guitars bass and vocals will be recorded here at my place. We'll also be throwing in some other segues and noise to give this record a more interesting sound. I kind of feel if we're going to spend time on this, we want it to be as fucking good as we can possibly make it. And then hopefully you will all like it and share it with yr friends. After the recording is done, we will hand it off to our great friend/producer Alex Newport so he can work his insane British magic and mix a motherfucking tight album!
