So we’ve been hard at work recording our new EP with Pete Steinkopf, of the Bouncing Souls, at Little Eden Studios in New Jersey. The record sounds fantastic so far, and we’re all ridiculously pumped for y’all to hear it! Our trip to Jersey has been pretty rad, we walked along the Asbury Park boardwalk, played some pinball, and got to use a high striker! For those of you who are unfamiliar with a high striker, it’s one of those things you see at carnivals that you hit with a hammer and the weight goes to the top and dings the bell. Although none of us we’re able to ring the bell, Jason did manage to hit He-Man status! We also hung out with Bruce Springstein, sort of.
