Well, friends…we are back with the resuming of our series! We took a few days off due to some unforeseen technical issues but, as I said, we’re back and things are progressing right along. Our friends from The Yellowhammer State, Alabama’s Ember, have wrapped the recording at Ledbelly Sound Studio portion of the series. That means starting tonight, we are going to get a fresh, new look at some other things connected to it.
While our atmospheric-tinged doom musicians absorb the demos from their time in the studio, life goes on in other aspects. First, Erik Bigelow breaks down some details of the ongoing contests Ember have been running of late. In one clip, we are apprised of the Limited Edition Box sets (ten in total) and what it takes to be entered to win one.
We are also treated to being present for some glimpses of a recent Ember live show where Erik (drums), vocalist Crystal Bigelow, guitarist Craig Shadix and bassist Jeremy Allen take the stage. As most know, that’s where the music of “271” is road tested so to speak.
Another interesting portion of tonight’s segment is the detailed breakdown from Erik working on the artwork for the EP. We get a bird’s-eye view of several of the applications being utilized to create the art and visual packaging of the upcoming release as well.
There, you are all caught up as to where tonight’s latest insights will take us as our visual journey now continues.
