It's medal shot here and I have point nine KI SW welcome back to the studio took Scioscia talks they easiest. These guys are awesome welcome back it's a Don and met with when. Low against doing feeling good then it's welcome to our new digs man. Tonight fear beautiful studio yes or no stranger to metal shop and it's the first time here in the new studio we got you some coffee khakis and T and some watered them. Can tonic for you and that's what is being seen baby. Exactly so. It was a big week for you all of course it was how we learn some killer metal shows this week but also negotiate. World you launched a kick starter for our new album that's going to be coming out spring 2018. That's right straight it was launched on Monday. So those linemen active it's active it's doing quite well I'd say it was. If you very fortunate. It's working again you know and I am which is good. You know it's like five days in some like that in almost at 50% of the gulf though he's getting bigger and huge. Yeah so the opposite of crickets and the opposite. That's green and obviously I mean you guys put out quality music and you actually. You know a lot of times people get bad rap with kick starter by actually not go again going through and helping out and actually sending up the music but you guys did you followed through yes and people on know that so. Very cool I mean it worked out for you last time they're known not misty. Exactly. On and you hear about that I don't know and they took the money ran. Don't do it. There so it's been really cool to folly guises career as a band since since the beginning. And this is gonna be the second full length record rate in Australia delirium we have a link up to that on the metal shop FaceBook and the K guys W FaceBook. Let's talk a little bit about. Actually I'm curious to find out what is the most beneficial part of doing a kick start obviously it's working. As opposed to doing a label you get to have the whole project in your hands right. Yahoo! we get to own everything we get to keep everything ends. We get to insure everything directly with the fans as opposed to. I'm going through another. Another party before hand those as us directly to everyone who likes the music and wants to listen to you it's I think it gives the band. Greater sense of ownership over the whole thing I think all of the whole business aspect that makes you really have to care about. Yeah I've Avery did it literally everything everything I liked that. You know I've done through the traditional way for many years and it was always good that this is on. You know and I guess I should mention. There we launched our own. I guess record companies if you will really called the iceberg multi media. And that so that stamp will be on everything we do and eventually will. Probably work and other people's stuff but this is kind of the birth of an iceberg multimedia school threw me an empire through kick starter yet it's it's a good thing. You know priest our goal is to be like death clock and test your doctor and some of them are encouraged to enjoy teachers Taylor lumbering and slow and I have fun they away from adult swim though it's negotiate brilliant. It's killer man and so these guys have I believe is fifteen songs and Gamal former and a yes we do if not more can we would I think we never stop writing Viejo. Going into the studio. You know have more than enough material the record itself. You know depending on how long all the songs are at 1012 songs you know our music's always want a little more than you think you might get a and then we can have those things singles listings to release afterwards in the future which is. Totally cool it OSHA beef eggs scenario and though. Yet the V and about a hour's worth the music personally I don't I don't like records that go on and on and you know that's true got to keep it short and sweet and cut back. And how long is. Got some slayer records superstore that lesson happened and fitting because of working with parents Smith from seven or seven guys obviously he has is it usage stadium. Envisage audio in visage audio. And that's gonna be convenient Hewitt on your mentioning your team lived there you guys do and yes and it's it's a lovely recording studio.
