Dearest Rock Fans, we are extremely excited and proud to announce that we have completed recording on our sophomore record! We finished late Thursday night and celebrated with a cigar. Honestly, we are truly blown away by how good everything is sounding and we owe a debt of gratitude to one man…. Mr. Terry Paholek at the Physics Laboratory. Terry has been like a fifth member of Heaviside throughout the recording process and has helped us formulate some of the ideas that will define this record.
The past month has been extremely busy and exhausting. We began work on this monster on February 20, and were in the studio every day after work as well as full days on weekends up until Thursday. The hard work was definitely worth it, we can honestly say that the songs have exceeded our wildest expectations (I know how cliché that sounds but truly believe me when I say that we are in complete awe of what the five of us created in one small room). The album does have a name, however we are not yet at liberty to say what it is. Trust me when I say that both the album name and cover are very cool.
As for upcoming events, we are beginning to look at dates for the CD launch party, so keep your calenders open for late May and early June (hint, hint…). Additionally, we are always working on the record, after mixing, it will go off to Toronto to be mastered at the world class Lacquer Channel Studios. Once all the bell’s and whistles are fine tuned we’re going to take this beast to the stage, and raise the bar for our live shows.
As for what you guys can do to get your Heaviside fix, keep your eyes tuned to www.heaviside.ca and facebook for new videos of us in the studio, or doing our usual shenanigans. Also, we still need your help to get the word out and help us rally the troops. Online voting is still going on for the Edmonton Music Awards as well as for a chance to play Boonstock Bandwarz. So if you have the time we’d really appreciate your support (only two minutes, I promise). If you’ve already voted and would like to pass it on that would be awesome too, every vote helps.
In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this video of us trying our best to look cool while smoking a celebratory cigar (we were done recording, it’s been a long haul, can you blame us?).
Stay tuned for more cool news coming very soon,
