All the songs for Manx 6 are mixed! There may be a very minor tweak or something left but it’s essentially done! Next is the song order then on to mastering!
Mixing on the new record should be wrapping up VERY soon. As of now, we are looking at a late December/early January release. Can’t wait to get this sucker out there!
6 of the songs on the new record have been mixed! It shouldn’t be long now before the finishing touches get put on. I’m still amazing by how different a record sounds before and after mastering. That process works wonders. I wish I fully understood it.
On a side note, big congrats to our keyboard master, Paul, on becoming a dad! Huzzah!
Don’t forget, the Manx are playing the Double Barrel Benefit in downtown Raleigh at the Pour House, Saturday, Feb. 4th. We are the last band on the 4 band bill so come out and party with us, while supporting a fantastic radio station. See you there!
The Kingsbury Manx wishes you a Merry Christmas and happy holidays! 2012 will be an exciting year, as it will bring new music from the Manx as well as the end of the world, as predicted by the Mayans. Huzzah!
We added a videos page to the site, where you’ll be able to see some official-type videos as well as ridiculous ones. For starters, we’ve added a couple of songs taken from acoustic practices, Regular Hands and Harness and Wheel. There’s also a live version of Blue Eurasians. The next four vids are random footage taken during the recording of our 6th record at Sound Of Music Studios. The last two are the official videos for Over The Oeuvre and Well, Whatever from the last record.
The photos page has been updated as well, with pics from the SOM sessions.
Last but certainly not least, a very happy birthday to Ryan Manx!
Welcome to the new Manx website! This was long overdue and I am really excited about having a fresh start on the web. The previous website was built and maintained through iWeb on my Macbook. Well, that Macbook died. “Oh, no!” you say. “You didn’t back up the site”!” Of course I did… However, it resides on an external hard drive which meant that to update it I was sort of shackled to that hard drive. That made it REALLY inconvenient to mess with the site. Doing a new site with a more blog-like format seemed to make the most sense and doing it through WordPress means easy updates and the ability to access from anywhere with internet. Plus all that black was, frankly, overkill for the eyes.
Our Twitter and Facebook pages have been doing a good job filling in as our web outlet and will continue be updated regularly so keep an eye on those.
As for Manx news…
Manx 6 (title coming soon) is now at the mixing stage! By the end of the year, we are hoping to have the final mixes in hand and ready to be mastered. We are aiming for a mid 2012 release and as the details for the exact dates become finalized we’ll pass them on to ya.
Cheers and Happy Holidays.
