I’m excited to tell you that our new record Bear Creek is all done and ready for you to hear!
We are so proud of Bear Creek as a band and I know I’ve said this before but I think it’s my favorite! ha ha. In all seriousness though, working with T Bone and Rick Rubin through the years has taught us so much and now we’ve finally been given the chance to apply that knowledge in our own quirky, unorthodox way.
Making this record was so much fun that we actually felt like we were getting away with something! We all wrote songs outside of our respective genres, we sang and laughed really loud, we played instruments that we didn’t know how to play, we played tricks on Josh and in the end, I turned 30…….If The Goonies had made a record, it would have sounded like this. Bear Creek felt like a sleepover with no parents to keep us in line and although we missed the big guys, we got to have our way in the studio. So we hope, more than ever, that you love it because if you don’t there is no one to blame but us!
As you know, it’s pre-order time and this is always an exciting and proud moment for us in the lead up to the record release. It’s the one time we get to show the industry how many fans we’ve made on the road over the years and how all the clever marketing strategies in the world don’t hold a candle to that.
We had such an overwhelming response to pre-orders for Give Up The Ghost, Live at Benaroya Hall with the Seattle Symphony and The Story (I got repetitive strain injury just from signing them all!) and I think, with your help, we can do even better with Bear Creek.
2012 promises to be the year of our lives and certainly the tour of our lives, so I look forward to seeing you out there my friends.
