The last two weeks have seen further work on the forthcoming EP “Live to Fight Another Day”, with Dennis Leeflang nailing his drum tracks on “Out Here In The Real World”, “In These Quiet Moments” and “King AWOL”, from his new studio in LA, and it sounds like he’s having a blast!! Perhaps one day we might have to ask this guy to do a retake on something…..nah, come to think of, no we won’t!!

There is drums on one song to go, which just happens to be the title track “Live To Fight Another Day”. Says Richard about this one – “…the message behind this song is – be empowered, don’t let anyone strip you of your pride or sense of humour…”

We’re also very happy to announce that as well as the amazing drum and percussion parts he always brings, Dennis will also be handling mixing for the EP. Richard and Chris had been in discussions about who might be available, who they liked etc, when they realised that the perfect guy was already right under their noses, having even mixed the 4 singles released in 2012 prior to “It’d Be Rude Not To” coming out the following year.

Further news is that Carl Lindquist will be coming to the party with vocals on the track “Out Here In The Real World”. Carl previously joined us on the track “Music Keeps Me Sane”, which we did a goofy video for that you can see here if you haven’t already. To say we’re looking forward to teaming up again is an understatement!!

Chris recently got back to The Basement Cafe & Bar in Melbourne to bust out some forthcoming material as he is often known to do, as well as a few favourite covers. On this occasion it was “Out Here In The Real World” which got it’s second ever performance, as well as a forthcoming TCSO song called “One Half Of Two”.
