Pass the Poison (2006)
Our first release. We recorded the drums and bass at the studio, then did all of the guitars (using PODs, not amps!) and vocals at Nick’s house. Then we went back to the studio for mixing/mastering. A lot rawer and faster than our later stuff; it’s a pretty good document of what we sounded like when we first started. I’m glad we kept this to an EP rather than trying to push for a full album right out of the gate. It was a good learning experience, and I don’t think it’s a bad record, either. Just a little different than what we do now.
