It's with more than a little bit of excitement that we can tell you, we've completely finished mixing Barriers. It's all ship-shape and ready to be sent to mastering.
Today I listened to the final pre-mastered tracks in running order with all the links and bits and bobs. It was a really funny feeling, listening to them all one after another in the correct order, obviously without having to load a Pro Tools session in between. It felt a little bit like hearing the product of not far off a year's worth of really hard work, squashed down into one 40-minute sitting.
I guess this is just what it feels like to finish making a record... I'm really pleased that I'm finally able so say that sentence. We've finished making our new record!!!
I'm sure the other guys will come on and give their input in due course, but it's a pretty special time for us, after working out backsides off trying to make a record we can be proud of by our own fair hands, from the ground up. It feels really really great to know it's all our own work too.
On a side note, we played a really fun show in the Bathgate Music Festival last thursday with the mighty Jackie Treehorn. It was nice to be back playing live after a short brake to finish the EP. We had a really great time, so thanks to everyone who came out to watch us play - as ever your support really makes it for us.
Cheers to all who signed up for the mailing list and bought a t-shirt. We've only got 4 of the original A Torn Mind logo batch left (in Medium), so be sure to let us know if you want one of them. New merch will be on it's way soon, including girls skinny t-shirts in a colour and a second colour for the gents shirts. Similarly we hope to have the Online Merch Store up and running properly very shortly also.
We're currently putting together some ongoing content for our mailing list subscribers, so we really do advocate that you stick your name down to avoid missing out on the first looks and listens to the 2nd Preview Video and a lenthier Audio Sample Clip of the record, as well as a bunch of other cool exclusive things we plan to do. More on that as soon it's all ready.
