Hello boys and ghouls,
We have been working hard over the last few months trying to write some music that will rock even more sock off of your beautiful – but slightly pungent – feet than our previous EP. We think we finally struck oil. Hopefully, you will too. We went back to our friend Jesse Cannon at Cannon Found Soundation over the weekend to record a new single. It is about 75% finished now, so you will be hearing some new music in the very near future. In the meantime, enjoy some very tasteful and informative behind the scenes studio footage.
Our pal, producer and DIY guru, Jesse Cannon, recently taught a DIY mastering workshop via creativeLIVE, a really ingenious platform that allows users to watch live streams of workshops taught by industry professionals across a range of topics. The workshops are free to stream after signing up, and you only pay if you’d like access the workshop after the stream.
This week, Jesse is doing it again, this time, teaching a 3-day workshop on mixing fundamentals for rock and EDM. Wednesday February 12th through Friday February 14th, creativeLIVE will be hosting these 7-hour long workshops, covering everything from setting up sessions the right way to listening techniques to best practices regarding compression and EQ. The sessions run from 9am to 4pm Pacific Time each day. The class is free to watch during those hours, and only $99 for anytime access – definitely worth the price for a combined 21-hour session.
Jesse and creativeLIVE have been kind enough to feature some of our tracks during the workshop, so to make working alongside the tutorials easier, we have made our EP stems downloadable. We encourage anyone watching the class to use our stems to practice along.
Also, since we are making our stems available to everyone, we would like to announce a remix contest. Anyone who is interested in remixing our stuff, simply do the following:
- Download our stems.
- Make an awesome remix.
- Email us the file or link at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s that simple. We’ll feature anyone who puts in the effort to make something cool from our stems. And we’ll choose the best remix and feature it on our next release. Let’s see what you can do!
We recently added our first show to our calendar, and are working on adding more dates. You can view our show calendar in the sidebar or under the Events tab. We are really excited to play this first show, and hope everyone will come out and have a good time seeing what we’ve been working hard on.
Also, a big thanks to Bryan Baptiste from Stereokiller for the writing up the first review on the new EP. We just created a new Press tab where we will post press and reviews. There is also a link to our EPK there as well.
Greetings. We are The Color Nothing. We live amongst the trees in the pine barrens of New Jersey, where we play heavy music. We recently recorded this music for our (and hopefully your) pleasure. We would like you to have this music. It is free. Download it, enjoy it, and share it with your loved ones. Hated ones too if you like. If you enjoy it, feel free to follow us on any of our social networks. Just click on one of the many links you see before you. And then we can be friends. Or enemies.
