What a killer month it's been. We're hot off the heels of a really fun show at the Oakland Metro opening up for Intronaut, one of my personal favorite bands, and a huge inspiration to me as a musician. We played for one of our biggest crowds to date and met a ton of new friends and fans thanks to this incredible opportunity.
What's next? ISLES is halfway done recording our still-to-be-titled follow-up album; we go in May 9-10 to finish tracking it. After that's done, we wait for the mixes to be finished and then send it out to get mastered, while we finish up the artwork and CD layouts. It's going to be a really busy month as we get this done. Hopefully we'll have this album out mid-June. We can't wait to share these new tunes with everyone.
Almost forgot to mention that we're working with one of my really close friends, Bradley Whiteside, who's been following us along our trips to the studio and to a couple of our shows the past few weeks. He's working on a spotlight & documentary on us, so be sure to stay tuned for that!
Make sure you're following us on BandsinTown so you can find out when we'll be in your neck of the woods. You can do that here. See you guys soon!
