Mountains Among Us Issues Studio Update

Mountains Among Us are currently recording their new ep "Redeemer" at The Lodge Studios in Charlotte, NC. During the process they are keeping everybody informed of the progress via a studio blog. Here is the first entry:

"Day 1: Gear: First off we can't begin to tell you how great it is to be back recording new material after a loooooong break, remember 'Believer' was recorded in the fall of 2008 and 'True North' was recorded during late 2007 to mid 2008."

"For 'Redeemer' we are using a completely new amp/effect setup, along with Brandon's brand new Gibson Les Paul Custom 'Custom Shop.' He is also playing through Marshall JCM2000 instead of the Orange amp/head used on the last 3 albums. Pedal effects remain the same Boss DD3, Boss DD7, Boss Super Octave, Boss EQ, Ibanez TS808HW Overdrive (gift), Ernie Ball vp Junior. Boss DC3. Setting are completely different than before, lots of overdrive without the heavy distortion of before. He also likes to use Mogami cables, slightly expensive but well worth the $."

"For Bass Jodi plays a mid 80's Fender Jazz with custom pickups. Pedals are Electro Harmonix delay, chorus, and Tube overdrive through Marshall head and Cabinet. Pretty straightforward setup with lots of bottom end."

"And I am using the normal drum setup used the past couple albums with a completely different mic setup. Same symbols, same everything else. Pretty boring I know. We are experimenting with acoustics and mic setups at the new Lodge studio here in Charlotte. It's more of a, well lodgy setup with solid Cypress Walls (videos of recording coming soon. Brandon and Eddie will engineer most of the recording and mixing with mastering being handled at A Clearer Sky Recordings Studios."

"And for vocals. Yes we now have vocals, at least for this release, maybe from now on who knows. Brandon will be handling vocals since he already does vocals for his other Band Autumn Is Forever. The vocals should blend in the mix more and not out front as much, so don't worry folks. The vocals will also only be incorporated in the songs instead of being throughout the song, get it? Good cause we don't!?"
