Five Times August’s Brad Skistimas checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@fivetimesaugust) on Sunday (March 1). The Dallas, Texas singer songwriter tells readers:
I’ve been meaning to write a blog update for a while but things have been crazy between a few tour dates, recording, band auditions, and moving to Nashville. We made it out here February 9th for a week to hold band auditions and go to a conference. We didn’t have too much with us so we were basically sleeping on the floor the entire first week… not the best sleep I ever had, I’ll be honest.
After that we had to drive back to Texas to finish work on the next album. I was in Austin for seven days working with producer/mixer Andy Zulla on the tracks. If that name sounds familiar to some of you it’s because he mixed the last album “Brighter Side.” I really wanted to work with him again on polishing up some of my best work, so we chose 12 songs from my back catalog and got to work. Essentially the next album will be a sort of “best of” collection, but it will be all brand new versions of the songs.
