The new songs are coming along swimmingly. I'm taking my time and not rushing anything, but I am starting to get anxious to release new material and put the new "plan of attack" in motion. 2012 will be an all out Ludwyg assault.
I had a conversation in regards to writing/ recording with a fellow musician this past weekend that I have much respect for (Oliver Ackermann of A Place To Bury Strangers). His advice to me was to hold off on releasing any new music till a short period of time had passed after the recording process was over. This way I can be certain the songs are solid, I'm happy with them and they are ready to be cast out into the world. After the pressure and time constraints that were put on our previous release... I have to agree with him.
So I'm taking that advice and running with it. So the new EP will be released soon... but I want to give the songs a minute to breathe first. I'll keep you posted.
The new "Lighning Bug EP" is... almost done. It's bascially ready to go, I'm just taking some extra time with it to focus on the mix, the synths and sounds that go into each song. As much as I want everyone to hear it RIGHT NOW (b/c I do), I'm also not going to rush things as we did with the last release. I will (at the least) release one track as a free download within the next couple of weeks.
