Band album etiquette question: Rob and I had our next album named (you know, picked out all its clothes and the stuff for its room) since we’re recording it next week. (woohoo!) Google revealed this same name was already used by a certain famous Canadian rock band — their 9th studio album, in fact. Alas, it was 37 years ago, but, you know, Known (except to us, apparently).

Were we planning on recording? No. But a sweet old soul approached us after a show we played at the Soundhole last July and offered to record us at Drexel, where he is a music major. We had many songs to record (writtten in NYC mostly after our 2016 album Never, the End). His name is Matt Squires, but we call him 48-track Matt:
It’s been a wonderful experience — Rob and I have not even argued.
