Happy Thanksgiving! This has been one hell of a year for us and we are not quite finished yet! We just finished up tracking our new, six-song EP, Poor Troubled Life, for New Folk Records! It is now in the mixing and mastering process and we can’t wait for you to hear this record! In the coming weeks, we will post more video blogs from the recording sessions, release the cover art (done by Old Dirt Road artist Jose Pimienta), and perhaps a sneak peak of one of the songs. We would also like to thank the Lexington Field Choir for returning to the studio to do some group vocals and give major props to Derek Dawson for engineering this project. We had a very positive experience with Derek at Static Studio and recommend it for all bands looking for a great room and professional sound.
And just when you thought recording was finished, we have just thrown you a curveball! We are currently in the process of recording an acoustic EP, featuring songs played during Lexington Field Lite shows and some different other tunes off the beaten path of American Fiddle Rock. Initially, we will be doing an online release and hopefully have it ready soon, holding you over until Poor Troubled Life comes out in early 2012. We will be announcing more news on this record in the coming weeks too!
On top of all this, we are in the process of organizing our first quarter of 2012 and next year is going to be a big one! In the meantime, we have two more shows left this year before we take a break for the holidays. The final full-band show of 2011 will be on Friday, December 9 at Hooley’s in Ranch San Diego! Make sure you come get your American Fiddle Rock fix taken care, so you will be ready to go for next year. Then, the following night, Saturday, December 10 we will be playing a special Christmas acoustic set at Cosmos Coffee Cafe in La Mesa at 7 PM, during La Mesa’s annual “Christmas in the Village”! That show will be all-ages, so bring the kids and come celebrate Christmas with Lexington Field!
We have so much to be thankful for this year…Putting out our our debut, full-length album Old Dirt Road, playing to thousands of people at shamROCK on St. Patrick’s Day, opening multiple shows for Irish rock heavyweights – the Young Dubliners, meeting some great bands such as the Ramshackle Army and Hoist the Colors, joining Uncleowen Records out of Japan, working with our super cool sponsor LuteHole, putting out a kick-ass music video for “Tracy Boys Fight the World”, witnessing the birth of country legends Midwest Missile, playing tons of shows and meeting so many great people, signing our first record contract with an awesome and respected label, New Folk Records, and going back to the studio to record more Lexington Field original music! Most of all, thank you so much for joining us in this journey to introduce Lexington Field and our American Fiddle Rock to the world! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
