The Creative Process #25 Fog Light

How hard was it for you to create, record and release your first material?

Jarmo: As soon as I started playing drums we had also our very first band going (not Fog Light). We spared some money to get the Fostex 4- track recorder. We had one mic and that tracker. Lots of demos were done with that equipment. Nowadays, I have my own home studio with modern mics and interface. Fog Light albums have been created, recorded in our own studios. We have released albums, songs and videos by our own, but the last two albums were released by Inverse records from Finland.

LOW DOSE ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR TO CELEBRATE RELEASE OF DEBUT LP

As the fanfare revolving around their debut LP swells, Philidelphia’s Low Dose have announced a North American tour commencing this April. Kicking off just days following the release of Low Dose (out March 29th), their live show is sure to include bows to the guitar-chugging maelstrom of ‘90s alt-rock (“For Sure”) and bone rattling elegies to love gone wrong (“Right On”). A full tour itinerary can be sound below.

EROSION (MEMBERS OF BAPTISTS, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD) ANNOUNCE ‘MAXIMUM SUFFERING’ LP

The world might have heard of Erosion a little sooner if the members weren’t busy sharing duties in a handful of other projects. Guitarist Nick Yacyshyn, drummer Danny Marshall, and bassist Andrew Drury are more widely known for their work in Vancouver’s beloved hardcore veterans Baptists. Rick O’Dell was snagged from his bass duties with sludgy classic rockers Tobeatic and punk rippers Hard Feelings to join Erosion on second guitar while vocalist Jamie Hooper was recruited for the vitriol he unleashed with the triumphant metal export 3 Inches of Blood and the grimy punk band Congress. Given their pedigree, it’s no small wonder that their debut full-length, Maximum Suffering (out October 19 on Hydra Head)exudes the kind of ugliness that only comes from artists steeped in the art of musical ferocity.
