The good news is our debut E.P. ‘Shoot Out The Lights’ has been mixed and is being mastered now! We’re just finalizing artwork and preparing to announce a release date… exciting times ahead in camp Nice Guys.
I’ve had a cooling off period after recording SOTL and now listening to the mixed version I can say, and I think I can speak for the other guys here, that we are extremely proud of what we have accomplished with this recording. We worked together well and encouraged and challenged each other to be at our best throughout the process.
I can’t wait for anyone who is interested in the e.p. to hear the thing, I feel like a boastful parent talking about their child’s achievements when I tell my friends about the recording. They’ll probably listen to it just to shut me up!
Earlier this week, we all got together to have a few beers and discuss release plans, merch ideas, touring buddies and general 2011 plans. The mood was enthusiastic and positive and I think we’ve got a full map for 2011 worked out.
Personally, this is shaping up to be the most exciting experience I’ve ever had in a band and I look forward to challenging myself to get better and better along with the band as we play more shows and write new material.
I sincerely hope the next post we can give you will have a release date and a show announced near you. In the meantime though, we are playing a Purple Day event at the Sandringham Hotel on the 26th March. This will be our only show before our e.p. launch so please come along and say hello. The show will be with our friends Lungs, Grim Fandango (WA) and Let Me Down, Jungleman and is for a good cause (raising awareness of epilepsy).
