week 5 and counting...

Hello my friends. Its Ryan here. I want to start by apologizing for not posting one of these yet I have just been super busy with this whole recording thing. We are starting week 5 of the recording process and I have to say I can't believe we have made it this far. It looks like we will be finishing up by the end of next week. I am so happy with how it is all turning out. This record feels like a big step for our band. The songs are much closer to me than they ever have been. Everything from the chord progressions to the lyrics is a new place for us. I hope you are not dissappointed, but there isnt anyting quite as "bouncy" as that one song that sent our band soaring upward. i think it was called Ocean Avenue? Don't worry though we arent going to be that band that just stops playing their old material because they think they are above it later in their career. We love everything we write its just that something about this new batch of tunes really means something to us. It has more energy than anything we have done before. We are mostly focusing on the strings at this point. I don't know if many of you know this but since the underdog ep we have kind of been a seven piece band. Our friends Rodney and Christine have played the viola and the cello on all of our recordings. Sean is working much more with them on theis record and it is really defining a new sound. The string section is everywhere this time. It's almost like having another lead singer in the band because the emotion the full string section is bringing to these songs is so intense. We are hoping someday soon to bring Rodney and Christine on the road so they can get the recognition they deserve for what they do for us. Anyways, I hope you are all as excited as we are. Talk to you soon. -ryguy

Finally! a post from Ryan!

honestly, why on earth would we be dissapointed about the new album? so what if its different? different is good!

i think u guys should give Rodney and Christine more recognition. saw their names on the Ocean Avenue booklet. Christine Choi and Rodney Wirtz right?

anyway. can you please, please, please, please, please, please, please consider coming to Singapore to perform, please?

i bought the DVD(do you have any idea how hard it is to find it here?) and watched the concert and it seriously kicked ass.

well, anyway. good luck on the album and even if it sucks(but i'm 100% sure it won't) i'll buy the CD and listen to it every day anyway.

peace out guys!

(btw, i'm number 10! woohoo!)

I'm so sad that I don't have many channels on my tubie, which means I didn't get to see your performance! I'm sure it was great, and I'm not disappointed about not having 'bouncy" songs cause I'm listening to Underdog right now, meaning that your older music is never gonna go out. Please don't keep us waiting, for me...

Gosh, If only I were a girl... It would work! ^_^

Although I remember you saing you're not excited very easily or something like that...

I'm totally pumped about the new album! I'm sure it's gonna be great. Though I must admit, I'm a bit disappointed that the songs won't be as "bouncy" as Ocean Avenue. That's the song that introduced me to YC and started my obsession. I listened to the Ocean Avenue album every night until my mom finally couldn't stand it anymore. I hope recording goes well. Have fun making the album.
