While the band has been breaking in new keyboard player Mark Lau, guitarist (and occasional keyboard player) Chris Rupert completed writing and recording all the remaining keyboard parts for Minstrel in the Corner. This song is now complete, with the exception of some small vocal harmony parts, which can be recorded at a later date. Drummer Kevin Tetreault, meanwhile, has been reviewing rehearsal recordings to help finalize his drum parts for The Lost Journal.
More time was also spent at rehearsal sorting out the difficult intro to Dark Matter. Although we’re making good progress on this song, we’ll more than likely put it on the back burner as we spend more time getting mark up to speed on The Lost Journal and Sex for Sale which are both much closer to being ready to record.
