Awake Checks In From The Recording Studio

U.K. metallers Awake have checked in from the studio with the following recording update:

"‘ello again, things in the studio have been going very well this week and almost at an end! So I have sneaked in again to try and get gossip on what’s been going on. When I caught up with them all they were certainly in the bank holiday spirit! I caught them on the morning after the night before....

I Interrupt a serious battle of male pride, Craig told me 'I’m Very happy with how it is all going and I'm enjoying beating Andy at pool.' Andy can’t help but smirk and reply 'Beating Craig at pool is great, 3-0 so far! No seriously, happy with how this album is panning out...album titles have been discussed but we are not giving anything away just yet!' Steven who is eager to get back on the pool table adds 'All is super with the guitars, solos are down and it's all sounding heavy!' Unable to drag anymore from them, I decide its best to let them battle it out and go and find out what the other have to say.

"Recovering from what I heard was a boozy night, Alex is looking quite with it and up for the days excitement, so I ask him what’s been going on and what lies ahead. 'The time in the studio this week has just flown by, we’re massively ahead of schedule which is a big bonus for us! We will be finishing off the odd bit of lead vocal this weekend and we have the lovely Jenifer hardy back in to lay down her vocal parts for the odd song on the album (bless her, a whole weekend with 6 smelly men!) Overall we all couldn’t be happier with the sound so far, everything has come together very easily, a sure sign that this will be the best of the bunch!'

"Good friend Chris adds, 'Yeah, Jen is here this weekend putting down angelic backing vocals, this is the first time we've done an album with female vocals as we really wanted the huge choruses and a slightly different vocal sound in the choruses.' After a slurp of tea Simon tells me 'This album is fucking amazing, we're having the time our lives, vocally it's been pushed further than ever before; I'm very happy with it!' Guess they are all pretty pleased with things then! This week they are feeling a bit more generous and I do hear a sneak preview of a few of the tracks and I have to say, I think we are in for a real treat this time around!

"I love the previous two albums and they still get frequent plays in my house to this day, but when this new album comes along, I can see it being the only thing being played for quite some time!! The new boys on the block, Andy & Steven have certainly added that final missing ingredient. Keep checking for dates being added where you can catch some of the new songs being played. The next date is Wisbech rock festival Sunday 6th June."
