Chris and Steve spent some time last week in pre-production for Minstrel in the Corner, going through different keyboard patches and trying to decide which to use in the recording of the song. The band has also been continuing its work polishing up Minstrel in the Corner, The Lost Journal, and Sex for Sale at rehearsals. Everything is now pretty much in place to start recording Minstrel, with Kevin just needing a little more time to finalize and perfect his drum parts. With any luck, we’ll have the drums recorded sometime in the next month.
You may recall that Steve was in a motorcycle accident a few years ago, and has suffered a fair amount of pain in his leg as a result. Because of some complications, he’ll be going in for surgery tomorrow, which will hopefully correct some of the health issues he’s been suffering. He’ll be out of commission for an unknown amount of time while he recovers, and we ask you to keep him in your prayers. The rest of the band will continue to rehearse and hopefully get some recording done in his absence.
