wars, stars and fast cars

Hey guys,
It's Pete again...checkin' in just to make sure you guys are alright, and give you guys some updates about our lives and the studio it revolves around. I'm a lttle tired today and not as quick as I usually am...we went to a midnight showing of the new Star Wars movie last night up in Calabasas...i don't know if that's how you spell it, but that's where we were. So needless to say I didn't get the amount of sleep necessary to come in and make a rock record....you won't notice though...we will just overdub the bass tracks. About those tracks, they are comin' along pretty good. We're mixin' up the recording process a little bit this time around. Usually we go one instrument at a time...but Ryan and I are bouncing around doing the guitars and bass, Ben's hoppin' in shredding some mean licks...and Sean's either arranging string parts or sleeping on the couch (let's hear a big aww from the ladies....cute lil Asian on the couch with a pillow over his face)
So i would say over-all we are a bit ahead of schedule....all the drums are done and over half of the guitars and bass have been laid down...Ryan has even cut a couple of vocal tracks (gasp from all those boys out there who love Ryan) I get to type all day when I'm not screwing up a song...i feel like I'm at camp and you guys are my pen pals....what?
Oh yeah...and Ben got a new car...stoked! It's a nice little Infiniti sports coupe...with all the options...but it's an automatic. Dudes, never buy a sweet sports car unless it has a manual transmission...10-4? That's that in Yellowcard land...not too exciting...my mom is coming out to see me in a couple of weeks...but that's not too exciting either......but....we may have a little glimpse of the new record for you soon...not too soon....I can't say too much else without tippin' off big brother. Stay tuned...until then...drink plenty of water and never smile at cops.
Pete

Whoa. This is pretty wicked, if i must say so myself. Is it seriously yc? im impressed. Cant wait till the new album comes out. Apparently, a friend of mine has made a chart to count down the days till its out. Although, i dont know how its possible, seeing as no real date is really....set. But thats her business. I love yellowcard, and im out now, to worship the violin thats sitting idly in my room.

Nice to hear you guys are ahead of schedule; pretty hardworking of you guys! Maybe there's extra time to lay in some extra (and I mean more than one ;P) hidden tracks?? Heh, I'll keep dreaming, or hoping.

... so you've smiled at cops before?

you're hella random!!! not saying that random is a bad thing and at times it's not necessarily a good thing either. Actually I think that being random should just be that and not be associated with anything else. see only a true random person could appreciate the effect of this comment. oooh look a butterfly....

AMAZING... just kidding... by the way, Pete, you kind of creeped me out(but in a good way) last year at the Warped Tour in San Francisco.. and the show you guys did at the Warfield... you had this scary stare........ yeah... anywho... take care and be good!!

For Sean:
Aww... *g*

I'm really looking forward to the new album. Seriously, you guys had better hurry, or I'm going to take away your movie priveliges. I'm glad to hear from the MTV interview that it'll be a "real rock record", but I do hope you'll slow it down for one or two tracks. Maybe not quite as slow as Rocket though. As much as I love that song, it sounds like a lullaby. ;)

Hi There Yellowcard !

Good post.

I'm a music fanatic, and I found your post, "wars, stars and fast cars", while looking for info on html music code - I don't know why the post came up, but it did capture my attention! Thank You!

Hey - Tonight, I'm being frothed by the "nuclear-meltdown, piano-mania, happy blues" piano music at http://www.claycotton.com. I just can't stop smiling :)

I wonder if you feel it as much as I do...

Thanks,
